I tried something a little different and thank goodness I did! I forced myself to do at leats half my workout this morning, even though I pressed the snooze button one too many times. Now, having just completed the rest, I am so glad I did the push-ups and squats before I started getting ready.
So, although I have kept the sickness at bay, fact of the matter is, I am still sick. I have not really succumbed to the coughing and I think the exercises have kept the soreness to a minimum. BUT, I have been TIRED. I mean, like I took a three hour nap later afternoon and had a hell of a time pulling myself off the couch to cook for the family. Now, I am sitting her more awake than I could have ever imagined.
But here I sit, continuing the good fight although I am absolutely dreading that single clove of raw garlic waiting for me on the counter top. If I am serious about eradicating this sickness from my body, I have to do it. I do not like the process of eating raw garlic (although I LOVE garlicky cooked dishes) or gargling with salt water, but hey – it is either this or some store bought medicine after the fact that is just treating a symptom, magnifying others, and allowing the root cause to extend its stay in my constitution.
In other news…
YEEESSSS!!! It is finally here. Black panther will be going down tomorrow and I have not waited so long to see a movie ever. I will have to do another post about why & I will do so next week after people have had the chance to see it.
Officially hyped and still trying to figure out what I am going to wear to the movie!
