Wednesday night I got home from work and at around 10:30 pm. I had a slight cough and then my chest felt funny. I went to bed thinking needed to just sleep. Slept horribly and woke up Thursday feeling like truck hit me and ran me over.
I was coughing and everything just felt tired and hurt. I was running a low grade fever. I had a lot of stuff to do, errands, and stuff for the family. My husband insisted I lay down and just rest for the day.
So that is what I did. I did not do any of my chores I had to do, I did not run any of the errands I had to run. I did not work out. I did not go to Muay Thai or Kali, did not pass go, and did not collect 200 dollars.
When your body tells you no in this way. You have to listen. It nearly knocked me on my butt… no wait it did. My body said nope, and I need to rest. Today I feel better. I slept better. I am still coughing but don’t feel like I have been run over by a truck. I will see how I feel when Saturday morning rolls around.
I was upset to miss training, and working on Muay Thai and Kali skills. I really wanted to go and even debated going in and pushing through my sickness. I however, did not want to get anyone else sick.
I am still on my fitness journey. This is a little hiccup. Keep up the good work. Keep being awesome, and thanks for reading.
