We had a great time at the convention, but we picked up more than two bags of books while we were there.... the novel 2009 H1N1 influenza, aka swine flu. (Gwen works in a clinic and testing her for the virus was mandatory.)
Gwen was already getting ill by the time we got back, and soon I was hacking and wheezing too. She stayed home on Tuesday; I worked for about a day and a half before I packed it in and took to the sickbed.
For the past week, we've subsisted mostly on tea, soup, and Lean Pockets. There was very little fruit consumed, although we did have cherry-flavored lozenges and orange-flavored Delsym. Plus, there were Popsicles.
We're still not back to our usual diet, since Gwen, who usually does the cooking, hasn't had the energy to cook. I've tried to pick up items that were easy to prepare, since I knew who might be doing it.
I haven't exercised since Wednesday. I did one of the Swimsuit Bootcamp videos this morning, which wasn't very strenuous or aerobic. I want to be sure that I'm really better, though, before I start pushing myself.
