Been Sick

Thursday, February 07, 2013

I caught the plague that my husband had last week and what my daughter had over the weekend. The last two days have been spent at home sleeping on the sofa. Rarely do I have to take off work, but this time my throat was so swollen I had to, and I didn't want anyone at work to get it. I'm feeling much better today but it was a doozie!

The hardest thing was me not succumbing to drinking a soda--all that time on the sofa. I still managed to get a lot of water in and I think that saved me from being sick more than 2 days. I'm upset I have to start my 28 Day Boot Camp all over again. I had only done 2 days, but with several days taken off to rest and not make myself worse, I have to start all over again.

Good news: looks like the members of the Geocaching Team are up and at em despite the colder weather. Go Team!

    Sorry you got the nasty cold. I wish other people were as thoughtful as you and would stay home when they were sick and not "share" the sickness with the rest of us.
    I just got over a nasty cold/flu and it took me several days to get back to what passes for "normal". I had no energy and really no appetite, but did not lose weight as I did not do anything but sit and read or sleep.
    One thing that I like to drink is hot lemonade with minced fresh ginger. I use Splenda to sweeten it. I have heard that ginger is good for colds and I enjoy having a hot beverage. It is one way to get a liquid into you that is not soda.
