Nursing my aches, chills, fever

roku fever

My generic NyQuil, thermometer and new Roku box kept me company over my third mini cold in six weeks.

Yesterday morning I woke up around 6. On weekends if I wake up before 7 I usually laze around in bed until 7ish and hope to catch a few more zzzzs.

I felt really tired and hoped to fall back asleep. I figured I needed the rest.

Plus every single morning I have something to do. Monday through Friday I get up at 5:30. Monday through Thursday I am on a shuttle bus to work at 7 a.m. Friday mornings I hit the gym for a 6:30 a.m. class and then back home to work. On Saturdays Curt and I hit the gym. Sundays I get the grocery shopping done and then take a late morning yoga class.

Yesterday I slept in until 9;30. About 1 Curt and I headed out to lunch. I felt a little off but figured I was just hungry.

I had a couple of beers and a burger, which had a fried egg and bacon. Talk about getting my protein in.

After lunch I still felt funky. (I figured it might have been the ginormous sundae I had the evening before. Eeekk! I went overboard with the dessert.)

When we got home I changed into my jammies and got comfy to settle in for some TV watching. That’s when the aches and chills started. Eventually I decided to take my temperature. I had a fever of 101.

I took today off and rested. My fever is gone. I slept most of the morning. I am grateful that The Husband recently got me a Roku box and a subscription to HuluPlus. I’ve got Law & Order: SVU marathon all day all the time.

This was my third mini cold in about six weeks. Let’s hope Third Time’s a Charm or hell, Three Strikes You’re Out. As long as I can stay healthy longer than a few weeks.

I normally get sick once or twice a year.

When I am sick I don’t exercise as I like to focus my energy on getting back to healthy. So you can imagine how frustrated I am with multiple illnesses. They have all been slightly different. First one was a regular (mini) cold; second was a (mini) chest cold and this last one was flu-like symptoms.

I am feeling better and as long as the fever doesn’t come back I will be going to work tomorrow and yoga tomorrow night.

  1. I know what you mean about being sick. I myself have been sick three times already this year. It has mostly been a sinus/head cold but I did have the flu over New Years. I don’t know what it is about this year…seems like everyone is going through the same thing. Hopefully we are done for the rest of the year.
