I started to get a scratchy throat yesterday morning and it worsened some during the course of the day. My online students noticed a difference in my voice.
As soon as I finished work at 3pm, I went outside and took a nap in the bed of the pick-up (the black bed liner means it's always toasty warmmmm). I dozed there for about an hour and a half, then went to bed until 6:40. I got up and puttered a while, then went to bed again about 9.
I'm going to throw together a quick vegetable/tomato soup in the crockpot now, then walk a bit on the treadmill, but I'm not going to push it.
It's been exhausting with my husband having shingles. He's past the rash stage, but is suffering terribly from neuralgia and can barely sleep, which means I haven't slept through a night in a month and a half either. I guess a cold was inevitable at some point.
BUT I will stay on my eating plan, keep within the lower range of my calories, and try to move on the treadmill. Tomorrow is my timed 5K. I still plan to push through this funk and do the best I can.
