TGIF!

It had to happen sometime this winter, I caught my first cold. When I started feeling the symptoms, I started taking Zicam. This time it didn't work and now I just need to suck it up and accept the sniffles. I hope it is a quick one.

Here is my week recap in bullets:
  • I am up 1.2lbs. I am not too upset as it follows my gain every 4th week pattern.
  • We are having a heatwave (30 degrees) so I walked a couple of miles to and from my meeting last night.
  • I completed Week 1, Day 2 without injury.
  • My bruises are now a purply-green color.
  • I bought a Plantar Fasciitis brace and it seems to be helping.
That is about all I have. I am bracing myself for a really busy weekend. We have lots of kid activities, house projects and and have to work.

Have a great weekend!

This is the time of year when I usually wind up with a cold. I'm expecting it any day now...

Colds suck!

Glad to see your getting a heat wave too! I'm so excited for 30's and 40's!

Hell, I can 'gain' 5lbs during 'that week' without even trying. Feel better, it sux. Mucinex twice a day and work on your snot rocket technique.

Purply-green bruises are THE BEST! They are like the royalty of bruises and most people would kill to have a few especially around halloween because no over-the-counter costume make-up even gets NEAR the color of the real deal.

So count your blessings - but don't bruise yourself while doing it, sister!

Get better soon, sister! (I am walking a lot, too, while I await the promised healing of my own 3-month-old injury.)

Hope you have time in your busy weekend to rest up and get over that cold!

Winter colds - they suck. But better weather all around.

Enjoy the nice warm temps! Have a great weekend.

I'm fighting a cold, too. Pretty miserable. But at least it gives me an excuse to curl up on a blanket and go find new blogs to read!

Cyndi said...

I hope it's a quick little cold and stays above the neck! I have been surrounded by colds at home and work and knock on wood have escaped so far. I think all my tea drinking has been my savior!

Getting sick sucks! Take care of yourself and get well soon.

I have had PF myself and hte brace helped a lot. Not as much as the stretching though..do it ALL the time. Basically everytime you think of it. I was absolutely the best thing I did to make it go away.

Hate to be a bummer, but last "cold" HUbby and I got was in Sept and we finally shook it in Jan with lingering sinus problems. Main thing is fluids and rest. Get well soon! Vee at www.veegettinghealthy.blogspot.com

I'm doing the couch to 5k too! I was going to be on week one day two ... except I caught the flu.

So I'm back to week one day one starting Monday. ;-/

RooBabs said...

Wahoo for run #2!! And kudos to you for walking to and from your meeting. That's very bold, even if you are having a "heat" wave. = )
