It all started on Wednesday feeling tired and not my usual 100% full of beans. I soldiered on during the day, until night time descended and my glands were sore! Here we go 3 days full of feeling rubbish. Then the aches came on and the having no energy to do anything. Even getting up to get a drink was an effort. Instead of feeling hungry I would feel nauseas and not feel like eating as my glands felt like they were trying to burst out of my body. However, I did manage a meagre piece of toast to keep the feeling sick at bay.
Day 2 consisted of me planting my butt on the sofa and watching day time TV. Day 3 was again another day of sitting on the sofa and getting bored of watching daytime TV. I did not even have the energy to plug my laptop in and blog. Now I am on 5 and I have felt a lot more energetic today but as the evening has gone on my glands have become sore again. I am sure I will be fine for work tomorrow. I had forgotten how energy zapping the flu is. The weird thing is out of my immediate family I am the only one who has had it. How does that work when I live in close proximity to 3 other people? I would love to know where I picked it up from. My dear Cousin taut me a trick to get rid of colds and bugs, take raw garlic! Yes I know it makes you stink but when you are desperate you will do anything to feel better. I chop it up like little tablets and swallow it with water. It is a phenomenel thing they say if you take half a clove of garlic every day when you have a cold it can half the time you have it.
My training for the Mad March Hare has been rubbish this week with not one run which is frustrating. For 2 days all I ate was a few peices of toast. Yesterday, I cooked a roast dinner which was my goal of the day. My Daughter loves my roasts and I had bought it all at the beginning of the week, plus I thought all the vitamins from the veg would do me some good and the Children.
Onwards and upwards for next week!
