And although it’s January, I’m not talking about the weather. (Although I’m not a big fan of the 40s and 50s in January. It leaves me just waiting for the other shoe – a major blizzard – to drop, no pun intended.)
No, I’m talking about this stupid cold I have, and it’s really annoying and frustrating. It’s killed my energy level; I’m tired a lot.
I don’t have asthma at all in any way, except when I have a cold. And it’s not even asthma, it’s just that I get winded really easily when I have a cold. Even walking up a flight of stairs right now leaves me short of breath. So working out is really tough right now. Just when I get my motivation fixed after the holidays to go back and work out, I can’t. I mean, I can, but it’s a lame workout with not much benefit.
I have a nasty cough that gets worse the more I talk. So I have to try to get through the day without talking much, which is hard, and I have to take a lot of cough medicine and cough syrup to so I don’t sound like I’ve been smoking 4 packs a day for 20 years. Ugh.
So I’m just really frustrated right now. I want the cold to go away so I can work out, talk the normal amount, and have energy again. I’ve had this cold for over a week now, and I think it’s going to stick around for a while. Booo.
I know, first world problem, right? Still, there you are. I’m frustrated. And tired. And ready to be healthy so I can get back to focusing on improving me. I guess all in good time.
In the meantime, I’m going to take some Nyquil and go to bed.
