Rumors of My Recovery Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Sunday, January 19, 2014

I felt great Thursday evening. But when I went to bed, I started coughing. I couldn't sleep, and that really derailed my recovery. I thought I'd be going for a walk on Saturday. I did some work in the garage, did some laundry, and then spent the evening on the couch. Our trip to the grocery store exhausted me.

Today is already full: church in a bit, baking, watching the Seahawks game, more work in the garage. Thank goodness tomorrow is a holiday for me. I'd love to get some sleep.

I've come to realize that I just need to wait this thing out, and start slow when I'm ready to work out again. I'm not exactly sure how that's going to work, but I recognize that I just need to deal with my frustration. This is a temporary setback; working out too hard, too soon, will only set me back again. Any gains I made would quickly be wiped out. So relax, kiddo, and just deal.

Not that I enjoy any of this. And I'm sure I'm miserable to live with right now.

    I was really sick last week so I know what you're talking about. Thankfully, (I guess) it really hit on Friday so I spent most of the weekend on the couch watching football. Then I dragged into work because there were things going on I couldn't miss and pretty much just made it through the day and hit the couch. A week this went on.

    I'm ok now but the house is a wreck and I didn't get caught up this weekend. I figure trying to much too soon would have been a setback though.

    Hang in there.

    The Seahawks are probably going to the Super Bowl. Everyone is Charlotte is pulling for you guys to take out the 49ers for us. ;-)
