Up and About (Kind of)
Friday, November 16, 2012
I wish I had something interesting to tell you that I've done or learned this week. But unfortunately, I'm mostly posting to say that -- despite my over-calorie day yesterday -- I'm still on track. My last several days had been under goal thanks to the most impressive dance with illness I've had in awhile.
I've spent most of the week in bed. My bedroom looks like the Battle of Normandy, had it been fought with kleenex and throat lozenges. But on the upside, my abs are ridiculously sore from coughing. That's sort of like exercise, right?
I did such a fantastic impression of a velociraptor from Jurassic Park that when I called in sick to various places, the general response was "no no, PLEASE stay home." And I was happy to oblige.
I feel better today. Enough that I can start cleaning the house a bit. Enough that I'm actually going to LEAVE the house in a little while. (One of my friends, in a fit of appropriateness, sent me the YouTube video to the "Cabin Fever" number from "Muppets' Treasure Island.)
Furthermore, I'm actually going to cook for the second night in a row! Partially it will be trying not to cough into the wok. But mostly cooking.
I'll post again when I have something interesting to say. In the meantime, I'm going back to bed for awhile.
