Sick

Yes, I am sick again. This time with the flu. Please just kill me now. It started on Saturday with the chills, body ache, and a fever. Yesterday I laid low but still didnt feel much better today. I took half a day off work and honestly dont feel any better now either. I really cannot take another day off work, but I dont know how I can go in again like this.

Weight is up .6 but I dont really care. I havent exercised since Saturday, and even though I dont have any appetite, Im still trying to eat what I can, and am doped up on medication so Im sure thats accounting for the fluctuation. I tried to do some form of exercise yesterday, namely some stretching, but it didnt go so well and I ended up feeling worse instead. Guess sometimes you just have to say screw it, and give your body some rest.

So sorry you're not feeling well! Sometimes exercise helps sweat out a fever, but other times it's just best to save the sweat for a later time. :) Good for you for listening.

Hi Heather! Poor you! I agree that sometimes you need a break - sometimes its your body relaying that message and sometimes (most times for me) its my mental race that exhausts me. I think its wonderful that you've given in to that message, and I almost always find that after a quick resting detour I'm even more motivated to get moving again. Have you ever tried yoga? That's the best thing for me when I'm just not into it.

Oh Heather! I can't believe you got this again. I hope you're feeling better by now. I'm emailing you a hot cup of tea with honey and lemon.
