Good health is the prize, my friends!

Well dear readers, it has been a rough few days. I don’t think you truly appreciate good health till it leaves you even for a few days.

The things you take for granted are staggering. To name but a few.

1. The ability to kiss or hug my husband.

2. To just plain feel normal.

3. Being able to work out (yes, this one was surprising to me too)

4. Missing out on socializing opportunities with friends and family (you know who you are!)

I have been miserable for most of the week, stuffy nose and sore throat but in stark contrast to other times I have been sick, I stayed home and rested and made sure to take care of myself and not push myself too hard, I still went to work but thanks to my boss who saw how pitiful I was feeling and sent me home early yesterday, I feel SO MUCH better today. I still have a little stuffiness of the nose but my goodness what a difference rest makes. Your parents say it all the time and its true, sleep is the best curative.

I have to wonder if i wasn’t eating healthy and exercising, how long would it have taken me to feel better. Points to ponder! That in and of itself, is reason enough to exercise. Think about it!
