No one is forgotten.




You know, last week after I got back from Vegas, I was tired from a late flight, having to work and run John’s business while he was gone.  I was working 10-12 hours and just plumb ran myself into the ground.  The result? I am sick.  I never get sick. Never.  The last time was in February of 2012 at the end of the Disney trip where I had a very sore throat and laryngitis, but not not a true cold like I have now.  I cannot even remember the last time I had a cold.  Years.

This is what happens when you run yourself ragged.  I even declined a ride to bagels this morning.  I really wanted to ride, but didn’t think I should, to which John responded, “If you are even thinking that you shouldn’t ride, that means you definitely shouldn’t.”   He knows me too well.

My bagel.



It’s such a struggle for me to rest and recuperate.  I am used to just plowing through.  I have to remember it is okay to take a day off and let myself get better.

I had frozen yogurt for dinner, too, as pampering – just before a big storm blew in.  😀

Here’s hoping I am well enough to ride tomorrow!

    I’m glad you are recuperating with bagels and froyo. I hear they’re the best cure for the common cold. I am getting spoiled too–haven’t been sick in forever. I almost panic if I feel like I might be getting a cold. I think our healthy living lifestyle keeps us healthier than most, don’t you?

    Hope you’re feeling well by the weekend! (Notice I am giving you a few more days to rest and recuperate?)

    Join the club: I have a terrible cold too. I never get sick the first at home. It’s always R. who gets it and then you can wait till I get it. I have so much more resistance than him. His cold usually takes 2 weeks to heal, mine 2 to 3 days. It started Tuesday, yesterday was a very bad day and today I feel that I’m healing again.

    Hope you feel better soon too.

    I hope you’re feeling better soon! I used to get sick all the time before I lost weight, and I guess as I got healthier I was able to fight off things better or something. Well, this year I have been sick a lot, and it’s because of stress and being tired, I think. It’s rare I sleep well, and it takes its toll on me.

    Yep, I agree with Helen – sometimes getting sick is your body telling you to slow down . . . at least you still had bagel Wednesday! 😀

    So sorry! Colds are the worst cause you have trouble letting yourself be sick enough to just give into it, but that’s really the best solution for a quick recovery. I know with cold temps looming you hate any day you have to give up biking!
