Still Ill

Another song title? Who knows the band that sang the song, “Still Ill” without Googling it?

But, that’s where I find myself: still ailing from this cold. It was bad enough today that I had to stay home from work due to not getting any sleep. The combination of Sudafed and the running nose kept me from being able to rest, so I let the medicine run it’s course and fell asleep around 7 am this morning. I did get a few hours of sleep in before I was awakened by a stuffed nose and sore throat.

I feel a bit better now, but that’s because I’m taking more medicine. Hopefully I’ll be able to get some sleep tonight so that I can go into work tomorrow.

Of course, this has spelled disaster for my plans to run. Just walking the dog today took a lot out of me, and I’m sure that my upcoming annual training is going to really do a number on me. Unfortunately, we are so short that my absence would be disastrous, so I’ll “Soldier on,” as they say.

As for my eating, I’ve been sticking to the Whole30, and while my weight is stalled, I feel myself losing size as evidenced by trousers that are fitting better now. Hopefully the scale starts moving again soon, though.

I don’t know when this cold will finally go away, but for now, I feel like I’m still in the middle of it. My head aches, my nose continues to run, my ears are stuffy, and my throat hurts. Wish me well, folks!
