Sick and Tired

Today marks the 1 month anniversary of Chris' death.  I miss my friend....I still find myself wanting to text him or hang out with him.  But I'm moving on...accepting life as it is, which is what he would have wanted everyone that knew him to do.   Wait, not only accepting life...but embracing life.  Embracing what life throws at me.    It's difficult becuase I dont' want to embrace the crappiness that seems to have been hurled my way recently.  But I'm trying.

I've been fighting off a sinus issue/cold since Friday.  I decided to push myself last night and I went to zumba.  It was incredibly difficult to make it through the hour...but I pushed through and did it.  I'm not sure I can make it tonight.  The cold has taken a turn for the worse and I just feel 100% run down.  The dry hacking cough is there, chest tightness, sore throat....just generally icky.

As much as I want to go, I have to tell myself that I am trying to lose weight and exercise in order for me to be healthier.  Pushing myself when i'm not well is not a healthy maneuver.

Sorry you are feeling sick and tired. Hope you get some relief and get to feeling better quickly. I say rest. As for exercise I say do what makes you feel alive and good and if that isn't going to zumba class then don't go. I've come to realize exercise needs to be about enjoyment not something I just feel I have to do. Hugs

feel better darlin. i mega dose on garlic whenever i'm sick (20-30,000 mgs) basically take it until you start tastin it (gross i know but effective) i also take black elderberry extract or make my own if i have elderberries ( certified herbalist here) for the throat/cough.
i also wanted to share that chris is still with you on this journey. those we love (i believe) are still with us, i've had many experiences with the other side and have been lucky enough to see john edward ( crossing over) twice. bright blessings! xoxoxoxo

Hope you feel better soon. I took off when I had a cold recently. Felt guilty about it. I have not made it on my bike outside yet. Husband was too caught up with taxes and now the weather is not cooperating.
