Ah-one: Decision to TRI. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Ah-two: The day after aha moment... you really WERE coming down with something. emoticon

Ah-three: arise and shine, and appreciate that the fitness you have worked so hard to achieve speeds recovery from illness. emoticon

I'm up. I'm rested (of course staying in bed most of yesterday probably contributes to that, along with going to bed on time last night). The bag with the snacks and lunch is packed. The Spark mug is full of coffee, and breakfast is on its way.

I shall treat myself gently today... it's back to work. VERY grateful I took yesterday as vacation, planning ahead for recovery is a good thing. Today, we shall see what things were discovered during testing yesterday, and hopefully have a determination as to whether the OT has been backed off to optional, not mandatory.

Fitness is SO worth it. It helps in just about every area of life. Doesn't stop one from succumbing to illness, but certainly helps in the recovery!

Take good care of YOU today. YOU are worth it! LIFE is good. Spark on.

Oh, yeah, and especially important today for me: HYDRATE! emoticon

    Oh, yes. Taking Monday off after a big weekend is a wise decision, even if your Monday isn't spent quite as you had envisioned. Glad you could bounce back quickly, and it's good you could rest yesterday!

    Gently indeed: here's hoping that OT is going to be reduced. And: so true that fitness helps absolutely every area of life.

    I'm glad you are feeling better! Exercise is the key to so much in regards to our health! I hope the OT will be coming to an end sooner than later and you can start to spend more time the way you'd like. Take it easy a day or two more to get back to 100%. Drink water and have a great day!

    Glad you are back in the 'pink' - hope OT is voluntary and you can get back to 'normalcy' - whatever that is...
