Have you ever seen Legally Blonde the movie? It is such a precious feel good funny flick! There is a scene when Elle says…
Exercise gives you endorphins and endorphins make you happy and happy people just don’t shoot their husbands!
I totally agree with her. I exercise therefore I have endorphins and endorphins keep me happy and healthy and healthy happy people just don’t get SICK!!!!! I have been chanting this this over and over for the last four days.
So, here is the deal, my head has a heart beat! It has been throbbing. Thump, thump thumping all around my skull and at the base of my brain. The kleenex box and I have become inseparable. It’s highly possible that I have actually reached the cartlidge at the bottom of my nose from the grueling blow after blow. I feel like a snotty nose kid and it’s just gross!
Boastfully, I have not missed one single day of work. I made a vow last May to not miss a single day of work due to illness. (totally tooting my own horn) However, today after my morning sessions, I’m headed strait for the couch for a long restful nap. That is…if the motrin will kindly kick in and take away my headache. Sometimes, I just have to suck it up and get still in order to get well. As I write this, my eyes roll deep in the back of my head like an upset teenager. I just hate it.
Most likely I have a nasty sinus infection. Yesterday I gave in, sigh, and started antibiotics. I’m on a Z-pack. So hopefully by later this afternoon I will feel better and can shake this stupid crap and get on with my life.
But enough about me my little starlet…It’s almost show time. Week 5 is about over. Keep pressing on and finish week 6 strong. You exercise therefore you are happy and happy people have endorphins and don’t get sick and feel strong!
