0 to 90...In Reverse!

Sunday, February 13, 2011

Ugh! My wings are clipped today by picking up some sort of bug which has knocked me for a loop!

So now, when I'm so psyched to give this fitness center a run for the money I'm BLAM! Up against this wall...sinus' filled (no, just can't bring myself to use a neti pot...doesn't it run down your throat, lungs, whathaveyou?), headache, bad cough and other unpleasantries, not to mention a buzzy, spacey feeling in my head and ZERO energy! At least I got out for some slow walking while waiting for my infernal car to get finished with its repairs!

There is one good thing about this: I have zero, zip, nada appetite! Something about deleting the sense of loses all its appeal.

Ah well, I'm following what works for food and LOTS of water...going to FLUSH that bug away. If it's not better by morning I'll call in sick. Good thing I've got my notes so I can write up my notes (which are due Tues.!).

Might have to slip out to get my take home Valentine's dinner though... :-)


ps...DW is making steady progress with no setbacks. Hooray!

    Feel better soon, but don't try to rush too much or it'll kick you down again!!! Get some Vitamin C in you and rest. Try again tomorrow. Glad your DW is doing well! Prayers for you both!!!

emoticon Happy Valentine's Day!!!

    Ouch! I'm surprised that any ole bug could even catch up with you!!! emoticon Hope you ditch it fast! Happy to hear that your dw is doing so well! My poor hubby said last night that he felt he was coming down with something and did a lot of coughing before he finally fell asleep. It is a tough time of year in more ways than one!

  Aww, I hope you feel better soon! At least no sense of smell or appetite should mean less Valentine's temptations, though, right?

    Don, you may want to consider Gatorade so you can get some electrolytes and sugar instead of just water.

Feel better soon.

As for the Valentine's dinner - we always do it the following weekend because there is no guarantee we are home in time to go for a relaxing dinner (plus the nightmare of reservations) - we do the same for birthdays and our anniversary.
