No Gym For Me =(

I just got back from the doctor and the diagnosis is, it's a virus. She advises that we take it easy and stay away from people as much as possible until the cough dies down, which she says may be 2 or 3 weeks. Kaylee also has a mild ear infection. She didn't give us any medication, just wants us to call if her ear starts hurting or if she gets a fever of 100 degrees or more. Needless to say, since we have both been sick all week, I have not been able to go to the gym. =( Of course we would get sick the day after I sign up for a 90 day fitness challenge! I am pretty bummed. This sickness cuts down on appetite so I have lost some weight, but I don't really feel like it's a good thing. I wanted to get stronger, and get in better shape, not starve because of a sickness. And this is definitely a bad thing for Kaylee. The poor kid was only 33 pounds, now she is 32. I can't stand to see her getting thinner and coughing all the time. =( It's so hard when she can't catch her breath or gags. I wish the doctor had given us some "real" medicine but for now we will keep it up with the hot showers, humidifiers, Vitamin C, and the vapor rub. I really really REALLY hope we are well enough for her to go back to school and for me to go to the gym on Monday.

I am so sorry that both of you are not feeling well. I can totally relate to that as last week all the three of us (me and my two boys) were unwell, got bad cold and for me added with muscle pain on my neck all the way down to my shoulder. And that happened right after I bought DVD for cardio exercise! Anyway, I hope you two get well soon.

Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well. Sounds like the same thing that hit our house a week ago. We survived on vapor bath, humidifiers, vitamin C, hot tea with honey and triminic strips at night so the boys could get a little sleep. Hope you all get better soon!
