fat to fit - What to do when the winter woes set in!

This week I have been fighting sickness. At work there has been a bad cold going around. I have been taking preventative measures not to get sick. I have done only incidental exercise as not to over stress my body.
How do you prevent yourself from getting sick?

I do the following:

    • take multivitamins
    • wash & dry my hands after the bathroom, touching keyboards and handling food
    • take time out for yourself
    • stress less
Here are some ideas that I tried last week:
  • Eat more fruit and vegetables In pasta, risotto, salad, wraps, sandwiches, for breakfast on Sat /Sun
  • Choose healthy zero point food instead of chocolate or wine at end of day when hungry only chocolate 1 day this week
  • Cut down on sugar (includes sweeteners and honey) 1/2 amount of sweetener / honey
  • Eat more unprocessed foods (steel cut oats instead of Uncle Tobys Quick Oats or Weight Wise Oats) Mon-Fri
  • Drink less alcohol (4 drinks all week)
  • Exercise more - make a date with yourself  Sick this week so little exercise other than incidental
  • Plan meals for the week (saves time and money) DONE ALL WEEK
  • Cook a soup for lunch
