grateful to breathe normally

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

On Monday morning I woke up with a nasty cold. I stayed home from work and slept most of the day waking to blow my nose or drink fluids. Yesterday was better as I stayed awake most of the day, but was still not feeling human. Today I feel about 90% human. I still have some chest congestion so I am not working out until that clears up. I am prone to asthma attacks and don't want to go through that needlessly. I am doing some walking just not at a high enough intensity level for it to be counted as a workout. Right now though, I figure some movement is better than no movement.
I also have eaten alot of ice cream as it was the only thing I could handle most of monday and Tuesday. I anticipate seeing this revealed when I weigh-in. However, I know that this is part of life. Two steps forward and 1 step back.
I am truly just greatful to be able to breathe out my nose and eat solid food that doesn't kill my throat.
