Fighting off a cold

Saturday, March 19, 2011

Started coming down with a cold last night, and still trying to fight it off today. It's mostly a stuffy head, a little bit of a runny nose, and irritated eyes that are bothering me. It's not helping either that I am a little light headed from the anemia. I hope I am over it by Tuesday when it's time for chemo.

I really wanted to get out for a walk today, but with my symptoms today I thought it was better not too. I did just a short workout with the stability ball instead.

I started some potato soup in the crock pot late this morning, looking forward to having some for dinner.
Going to get into my pjs early tonight, and watch some tv and look through a stack of new magazines I got this week.

    Sounds like the perfect day except for the cold symptoms. Stay warm, take care.

    My nose has been stuffy, too. I read somewhere that allergy season is starting earlier and lasting longer. I think my nose might be a allergy problem.

    That anemia sounds like a real party-pooper. I like how you set aside time for magazines. The organization experts say to throw them out after a week, but I can't stand to do that when I haven't read them. So I stack them up but never thought about carving out a time just for them. I don't have too many anymore, so I think I'll try that!

    oh fun - new magazines! Hope you get over that cold quickly, Shari. I´m sure you´ve been looking forward to the warmer weather that Spring is bringing and the lovely flowers. You are doing better than I am with exercise - I haven´t done much this month and feeling guilty about it. Oh well, tomorrow´s another day! Hope your Sunday is sunny!

    Rest and relaxation are two great cold preventatives. Add the medicinal value of a new book on your Kindle for a complete cold remedy!
