I breathe, I sneeze. I laugh, I cough.
A few days ago it became apparent that I was not going to whup this nasty virus merely with herbs and rest. I decided to just let it roll over me and take a realllllly serious lay in bed during the day kind of break for a few days, sleeping at random intervals, showering a lot…nice steamy air clears the lungs. My immune system has been duking it out with the virus beasities and little by slowly, I’m gaining ground. Yesterday I was up and around a little bit. Today I even feel like I’ll live to see next week 😉
It’s never fun to be sick. But at least when you have other people around to bring you tea and soup and to rub your back or feet, at least it seems less demoralizing. On the up side, my immune system is in fine fettle and is kickin’ some viral arse.
Needless to say, I have not worked out since last Wednesday. I had just begun phase 2 of the New Rules of Lifting for Women. The book recommends a one week break between each phase, but I did not abide. I did workout (A) on Monday and workout (B) on Wednesday. I’ve been off since and I will use this time as my ‘week off’ that I probably should have taken, noted.
On a great note my dd is out of her cam boot and cleared for PT. Her ankle has healed up very well and she should be 100% with a bit of PT to get back some range of motion.
The weather here has been a drippy rainy affair. I’ve not been to the garden by my husband brought in some asparagus yesterday. That might even be something I feel like eating today! I can focus more and I have a new book I’m reading so today I hope to be able to read some of it. Robb Wolf’s Paleo Solution. I’ll let you know what I think of it.
Thanks for all the well wishes and kind words from the bloggy world, you folks are so sweet 🙂
