So, the head cold has not managed to beat me…yet. I worked out with my trainer last night. She told me a head cold is fine to workout with (depending on how my body feels), but a fever or any kind of fluid loss (throwing up, or worse) is a definite sign to skip the workouts for a while. Working out with a fever raises your core body temperature too quickly (or too much), which can be dangerous. So, always skip the workout if you’ve got a fever (even a low grade, apparently).
My head is still congested today, unfortunately. I was really hoping to wake up and feel miraculously better. I do not feel any worse, so I suppose I should just be thankful for that.
Meanwhile, I am working on a post that covers what I am eating since I have kicked majority of enriched, refined flours. I have had several people ask me what brands of bread, pastas, and such I am choosing, so I thought I would just share with everyone. Not that I am an expert (by any definition), but I suppose things are working for me this way. I hope to have that post completed by tonight or tomorrow.
I also wanted to say thanks to those who wished me well, and gave some advice on kicking a head cold in the tushie. Resting is certainly on my priority list today – along with lots of water and vitamin C (in the form of oranges). I suppose I am going to consider taking a multi-vitamin. Anyone out there recommend anything?
How are you doing this week? Are you taking small steps that take you closer to your goal(s)?
