Week 2 (and running into 3) - dealing with illness
Friday, May 03, 2013
So, my second week (last week) started off great, but on Thursday, I was starting to feel like I was coming down with something. My son ran a fever on and off all day, so I stayed home with him. What I thought would be a two or three day cold, that would set me back, has turned into a mean, mean respiratory infection. Both my son and I have been stuffy, coughing, sneezing, and wheezing since last Friday. I haven't run a fever like he has, but I haven't been sleeping well. I'm also not breathing well, which makes me feel more exhausted.
The weather's been crappy too, and it's the final week of classes at school. So, I'm working against a lot of really immediate deadlines. This has meant that I'm barely paying attention to meal planning, and I'm lucky if I remember to log into SparkPeople.
So yes, what I thought would be a two day set back, has turned into a 7 day set back. Right now, I'm going to concentrate on finishing my grading while resting and trying to get healthier food in my body to help me fight this bug. Hopefully next week I'll be up for moderate exercise!
