Day 6 of no working out :(

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

I'm sick. Was bound to happen. When you're stuck in a room with 27 germ factories for 30 hours a week no amount of hand sanitiser in the world will save you.

I was fine for most of the weekend (thank goodness) so I got to have a good time with my boyfriend. I was unwell on Saturday night, but he got my some pain killers for my headache and I was OK by morning. On Monday afternoon my voice started to go and I woke up on Tuesday with no voice at all. It is coming back today, but if I talk too much it leaves again. Apart from the voice thing and a cough I feel fine, which is the annoying part. However, I won't go to the gym with a cough like this. It's not fair for me to be coughing my germs everywhere. Even if I do try to cover my mouth and wipe down everything I touch I won't get everything. I will try for Friday, I should be back to work and able to get to the gym by then! Until then I am resting my voice as much as I can, drinking plenty of water and trying to eat as healthy as I can since I'm not working out.

    Being sick and wanting to workout is the pits! I was just there myself, I was sick for 2 weeks - completely unable to workout! I hope you get well soon and can get back to the gym and school!!

    Yuck, I hate being sick, too! Thankfully, I've built up an immunity after all these years.

    We're on winter break here in western MA. Hopefully the rest will kick some of the germs out. I went in yesterday and sanitized their desks. We've had two known cases of strep. I will go in Friday to sanitize door handles and computers.

    I'm glad you had a good weekend, at least! emoticon

    It's an occupational hazard!! I throw the windows open to exchange the air, give the kids Lysol or Chlorox wipes and have them wipe down their desks and tables and chairs, and spray the room liberally with Lysol spray when they're out at lunch. I've even been known to spray their bookbags and coats. Die, nasty germs, die!!

    YOU need to get some rest. Keep those fluids up. Hot tea is lovely for a non working throat. Airbourne is good, soup is good! Hope you feel better soon!!
