Help, I’ve fallen off the wagon and I can’t get back up

So my new schedule… isn’t… lately. Last Monday I was feeling extra tired so I only managed 10 minute of aerobics before I collapsed back to sleep. E came down with a fever that evening and Tuesday morning was in my bed after a long night, so I didn’t work out then, either. Took him to the doctor and he had ear infections in both ears so he’s been on antibiotics and some ear drops. I started poopy soon thereafter. I thought we were fine Friday so we went out with my sister-in-law for lunch and stuff. Saturday, another friend came down. Sunday morning was ok, but in the evening I started to feel really bad. Chest pain, bad cough. I ended up in the doctor’s on Monday, afraid I was getting bronchitis or something. He said my lungs were fine but duhn duhn duhn, I have ear infections, too. I’m on antibiotics and some cough pill. My chest doesn’t hurt nearly as bad now but this cough is still somewhat painful and very annoying. Kayleigh, however, is just fine. Must be her regular daily antibiotic keeping things at bay. I came home from the doctor, put K down for a nap and collapsed myself on the couch and was out for like 4 hours until K woke me up. Then, of course, I couldn’t sleep at night!

So, bleh. After a month of working out almost 5 days a week, I feel off the wagon. It’s this cough now that’s keeping me away because I know that the second I get into it, it’s just going to start and I won’t be able to stop. If I have to raise my voice a little bit or breathe something too cold, it just starts a fit. I’ve not been weighing in or doing body tests either. I just kinda feel like why bother to get everything out and set up just for that when I can go back to bed instead? :P

Steve’s also not got anything wrong with him. He’s only been sick to where he had to stay home from work twice since I’ve known him. February 2002 and December 2008! I wish I had that immune system. The doctor thought I was hilarious when I said I catch anything that walks by, but it’s true. I take more vitamins, for example, than Steve does, and he spends more time outside in the cold than I do, yet he rarely ever catches anything.

Oh well, you win some, you lose some. There’s just never a good time to be sick. I am so busy right now… I also didn’t intend to just come here and whine about being sick but now that I’ve started, I can’t remember what else I had to say… :)
