I haven't been this hit, for this long, for a long, long time. Naively I thought I'd put this kind of thing behind me when I started living a healthier lifestyle. GRRRRR! My head is so unbelievably stuffed up and my eyes will not stop watering. Eating hasn't been wonderful as I lack the energy to do much and food just doesn't taste right at the moment. This leaves me reaching for foods in the hopes of finding something satisfying - which nothing really is.
Well ... this morning I decided enough was enough. I truly have not been able to exercise for most of the last week. Some days I've been lucky to even be upright. Generally I still like to exercise when I have a cold because it helps me feel better for a little while. This one has wiped me out too much. But this morning I decided to ride my bike to work. I took it fairly slow and easy, but at least I was moving.
The ride home is going to be killer. Temps this afternoon are expected to be around 30°C (86°C). And the majority of the ride is uphill. Maybe I'll burn this darn cold off! Taking it easy certainly doesn't seem to be helping.
I'm hoping to leave work a bit early today and maybe hit up the beach this afternoon. I think I could use some moist ocean air!
