Here’s the thing:
I’m a flu snob. When I hear people say “it’s flu season”. I always think – “not for me!” When the commercials say “Get your flu shot!” I quietly reply – “Nope!” I just don’t believe in the flu. In fact I don’t believe in sickness at all. I’m just not about that life. But here’s where I have to ask for your forgiveness. I just may ramble today. I just might not make any dang sense at all because I HAVE A FEVER… I’VE BEEN COUGHING FOR HOURS AND EVERY TIME I STAND MY HEAD SPINS AROUND – MY MUSCLES ACHE LIKE I BENCH PRESSED A BUICK – WAAAAAH!!! (That’s me whining)…
But guess what? I still don’t believe in the flu!! Gosh darn it! Here’s my theory: Two weeks ago my body said “Hey you – you’re doing waaaaay too much – slow down!” Then I said, but body we gotta – we just gotta. Then body said “Excuse me – oh no you didn’t just give me only 4 hours of sleep four days in a row!” I answered, “body calm down – it’s all good – we eat right and exercise like all the time and we gotta, we just gotta keep moving.” Then body got an attitude and started turning her eyes all red. Then she felt like falling asleep at her desk at work. Then body really started making threats when she produced 3 massive pimples on her face.
Ok, that’s when I started to listen – well sort of. Ok, not at all – I slapped some benzoyl peroxide on those puppies and kept it movin’! Literally. But body had already had enough. Mile 2 of her typical 3-mile jog she pitched a fit, called it quits, pumped the brakes! That was 3 days ago and here I am today.
The good news – I still have my appetite And I am finally listening… I slept for 10 hours last night. I’ve had nearly a gallon of fresh water, loads of veggies and fruit and I’ve laughed a little about the whole thing. Although the laughing did hurt my side a bit…
Thank you so much for reading!!!!!!!! See you next time
If I left out anything – please forgive me – the fever is talking to me – but don’t you worry – I’m talking back!!!! XOXO
