today is my second day home from work, having caught a bad cough and fever from david, who was sick over the weekend. though i'm feeling better, i'm experiencing a sore throat from the coughing and body aches from being in bed (or at least lying down) for a good portion of the past 48 hours.
i knew i wasn't well enough to go to the gym yesterday morning, but i still attempted to do some weight work at home. that didn't last very long, as i became nauseated and needed to lie down. but at least i tried. last night i knew i wouldn't be going to the gym or to work today, so i set the alarm for 7:30 (for david) and resigned myself to the fact that would be doing no exercise. it's surprising to me that, after only three and a half weeks of this new agenda, i am finding it disappointing not to work out.
while i was home today, however, my new resist-a-ball arrived, which i'm really excited about. i plan to use it for weekend days when i don't plan to go to the gym but want to get in some good strength training. first i have to pump it up.
also, while being home for a couple of days, i was reminded of just how funny ellen degeneres is. particularly after the receipt of her hawaii chair! too funny.
hopefully i will be back to normal tomorrow.
