Sick, but Still Going

Ok, I'm officially sick with a head cold. Annoying, yes...but other than that, I'm still functioning. The fitness experts say that you can still work out when sick if you follow this simple rule: Neck up = yes, neck down = no...in other words...if it's in your lungs or have full body aches and pains from fever and sickness, stay out of the gym. As for the simple little head cold or sinuses, then keep forging through with your program. I have to admit, I'm also way drowsy from the medicine I took to breathe and sleep last night...I'm sitting here at my desk with fuzzy vision and the sad nodding off that comes with it. I took the meds around 11:30pm last night...it should be out of my system soon. However, I could just be really tired from the amount of working-out and lack of sleep I've been getting...about 6 hours a night...and we know that when working-out, you need at least 7-8 hours of sleep to really recover.

My goal for today is to continue to eat well, get in a work-out, get lots of water, and get some good rest. I may skip my lunch hour if I don't feel better by then and leave early from work. Hopefully I can get in a nap and then work-out...but it's all contingent on how I feel...that's all one can do.

Now back to my zombified state.

Have a great day!

Would it be ok if I linked to your blog from mine? I am blogging about my weight loss, and would like some other links on my page to check for motivation!

Just out of curiosity - how exactly does a head cold affect an opera singer? Is is kind of like when they put a muffler cone in a trumpet? LOL Hope you get better soon.
