Down, but not out.
Sunday, October 11, 2009
Well, tricky week this! I was doing great until Wednesday night when I left the office feeling the sore throat that always bodes ill. Went home, took some garlic, tea and Vitamin C. Took a day of rest, more garlic, tea and vitamin C. Limited my eating since I wasn't going to be exercising, and felt much better the next day. Went to work, no problems, looking like I beat the bug out with a quick 1-2-3 punch. Then, I went to get JP from school and ran into the dad of one of his friends - we all decided a double feature would be fun - his two boys and JP - yay! But by the end, I knew I over-did it! There was that sore throat back, with friends - congestion, cough and crud. On the bright side, JP spent Saturday with his dad, so I could once again do the garlic, tea and vitamin C with a full day of rest. Unfortunately, last night's sleep didn't go so well - I've been awake since 3AM. I know I need more rest today, but trying to keep this cold at bay is going to be tough today. We have a co-worker who's on immune-suppressant therapy right now, so we can't afford to have a bunch of colds running around the office!
On the bright side, a 3-day almost fast was just the punch I needed to get under 200lbs. Hopefully never to be seen again...but I am going to start eating more today and by tomorrow I should be back to my exercise routine. I hope this was just a jump-start for my system to keep going strong!
Well, here's to a healthier week ahead! Keep the Spark going, y'all!
