I caught a cold last week.
It's a matter of pride to me that I never, ever, ever get sick...so, of course, I had to eat my words when I felt that ache in my bones and started sneezing, coughing, and blowing my nose.
(That's what happens when you you say "never", right?)
I know why it hit me. Just too much going on between class, work, trips to Houston, kids moving home, too little sleep, and my work-out routine forgotten in the bottom of the closet with my tennis shoes and jumprope.
But instead of sitting back and taking it easy, I got on the treadmill. I didn't do a hard workout, just enough to move some air into my lungs and sweat a little. It's a trick I learned the last time I got sick.
(Ahem. So much for "never".)
I also started taking Mucinex DM. I'm not being paid to tell you that. I'm doing it as a friend. You're welcome.
By the next day I felt so much better.
The pace has slowed a bit, making it easier to get at least 6 hours of sleep and fit at least a quick workout in my day, thank goodness. I hope you're staying well, but if you feel that achiness and start sneezing...get moving!
Health is not valued until sickness comes.
(By the way, I passed my last real estate class today and submitted the application for a license. Now I just need to find a sponsoring broker, get fingerprinted, take at least one intense two-day review class and then...the Big Test. Still a ways to go...but I'm closer! If you're planning on buying a house in Texas, hold off just a few more weeks!)
