I finally got into a rhythm with my working out and strength training. The soreness had finally lessened.
I came home from work yesterday feeling really tired. I figured it was from the 8,349 steps I did in high heels. Part way through dinner, I just didn't feel right. Throat was scratchy when I went to bed. Throat was worse accompanied by a cough in the morning, feeling like my head was going to pop and my get up and go, never showed up. Great....
I went to the doctor. I have a ear infection AND a sinus infection. I am on a cough suppressant with decongestant; a corticosteriod nasal spray; an antibiotic AND a steriod for the ear infection. Holy crap. No exercising........
I hate that it feels like whenever I feel good and start getting into a groove, something comes along and knocks the wind out of my sails. TWO different steriods. This week's weigh-in is not going to look very good.
One of my Spark friends has been working hard to be able to walk a full 5K. She is going to do it this Sunday. She asked if anyone wanted to walk along side her (metaphorically, of course, since she is in the UK). I told her I would do it with her. These infections kind of throw a kink in those plans. But, I promised, so I'm going to rest for the next two days and take my meds. I will walk that 5k on Sunday, probably won't make record time, but I will do it. Then I'll take a nap!!
I don't have time to be sick. I will get rid of these infections then I will work hard to get back into that groove I had found.
