It’s been a full week of nothing. Well, nothing but feeling absolutely miserable. I think I had every symptom in the book: nausea, head ache, sort throat, stomach problems, light headed, dizzy….did I mention nausea? I seriously wasn’t sure if I was ever going to get better. It started Nov 12th and I only started to feel better yesterday.
It’s been a long time since I’ve taken a break from running/working out for this long but my body had some other plans for me. I would start to feel better and then BAM…all the symptoms would hit me hard for hours on end. It sure isn’t fun being sick and trying to take care of two little girls on your own since my husband was away for 5 days.
Monday night I had planned to do some baking but all that happened was cooking up some home made chicken soup and laying on the couch next to the fire watching a show. I was getting annoyed with feeling ill so before bet I did a 1:25 minute plank since I stopped doing them last week.
Yesterday, I decided to go to yoga class at lunch. As I ventured off to studio in town, I wasn’t sure how I would feel but I was determined to go and enjoy it. Luckily, most of my symptoms were gone yesterday but my stomach is still yucky today. Yoga class was GREAT! I even managed to hold the “birds of paradise” pose for the first time on both legs – this is progress!
I was hoping to get back to the 21 day fix with my co-workers today but I’m not sure if my body is up for that…I did bring my running clothing to work as well. We’ll see what happens.
How’s your week going?
Anyone else sick right now? Sure hope you don’t get what I have.

Thanks 🙂 You should have said hi at MRW! It was so much fun handing out medals.
Ugh, stomach upset is the worst. I’m glad you’re on the mend!
It’s the worst, one minute I feel fine and then the next few hours I’m feeling miserable. Seriously, just leave my body already sickness.
You poor dear. Feel better ASAP
It’s such a bummer. Whether you are sick or injured…it just sucks to feel this/these way(s). Hope you are doing okay.
Awwww so sorry you are feeling sick! I was feeling like total crap all of last week. That does stink. I hope you feel better soon!! I am so glad you had a great yoga class – it probably felt so good to move, stretch and breathe!! Feel better soon!
It’s going around. Little H had it and how Lilly has it too 😦 Yoga was so good and I’m really loving it!
my kids are both trading some kind of sick right now. Not pleasant at all!
Very cool you nailed Birds of Paradise! That’s a tough pose, I haven’t gotten there yet.
It’s that time of year, eh! Hope your kids feel better soon and you don’t get it. My birds of paradise is still in the early stages but I got up and balance for a few breaths – a big win in my mind!
I’m not super sick yet, which is a small miracle for me. I always get really sick in winter! I’m staving it off at the moment by wrapping up extra warm and drinking a ton of effervescent vitamins!
Hope you feel better soon. I have been a bit sick too with no end in sight 😦
Bird of paradise! Love that pose. Hope you feel better soon. I’ve had an awful head cold for a week and even lost my voice. So frustrating.
