8/6/13: Feeling a little bit better today!

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

I actually got enough sleep for once!! Over 8.5 hrs of actual sleeping time. I usually can be in bed for 9 hours and still get only 7 of actual sleep.

Woke up and felt pretty good, which was shocking considering yesterday. I've had enough energy today to do some of the things I've needed to- including a speck of cleaning and a small yoga practice. My arms are hurting from yesterday so I had to change it up a bit to suit my needs for today.

I took my temp just now and I'm at 98.1 F, which for those who don't know, is a bit of a fever for me. Usually my temp is 96.8 (yes I know the 'average' normal temp is 98.6). Not enough to worry but still. I know I should call a doc instead of complaining on here, but it's just.. I don't want to pay $25 in co-pay plus make the hour trip to the office just to be told it's a cold. I'll just keep trying to eat enough and rest enough and hopefully there's some insight on this... if it's still bothering when I go to school, I'll see one of the campus nurses... A few weeks won't harm anything, and if it becomes drastically more serious maybe I'll see my doctor here.

I really don't like how lately, I commit to a workout plan or get REALLY determined, and my body rebels. I injured my knee in June when I was doing INSANITY (oddly enough it was while I was in a YOGA practice- not the INSANITY- that did it), that put me out for a couple weeks. Now this? Ugh. I just want to be healthy enough to work out reliably and make progress on my goals.

Hopefully I feel even better tomorrow though :)

    I guess we have some things in common. If my temp reaches 100, then I'm on my death bed. Neither one of us likes to run to the doctor for needless things, or things we perceive as needless. Every time I really get moving, BANG, I'm injured somehow. I just want to run a marathon. Ankle/heal injury from shoes/work. Recent back problem was from a core class that is supposed to help with running.

    So, I guess we just press on, and keep knocking over the walls one at a time. emoticon emoticon and emoticon

    Only you know how you really feel, so just take care. Maybe you just AIM to exercise a little less, then ADD something else if you are feeling good. Glad you slept well. Hope your day today is fantastic.
