Coughing is not a hobby

Tuesday, January 07, 2014

I've been sick for a month. I'm sick of being sick! I have a nasty bout of bronchitis. Oh how I wish I could get more than three to five hours of sleep a night. I can't stop coughing. Its getting better but not fast enough for me. A week ago I couldn't even sit up for more than a few minutes at a time. So why am I complaining. I'm bored! I should be cleaning something, running around working out...
Not helping may be the limited heat in my house. My central heat went out Christmas Eve morning. I have portable heaters, its not as bad as it sounds. Exhale everyone this is California. Still, I wouldn't mind the warmth of hot flash, but they seem to have disappeared about three weeks ago.
I'm mulling over with the idea of walking on the Wii Fit Board. I cough from sitting so what the difference if I cough during a 10 minute step program. Not exercising is driving me crazy.
I ended the fall challenge sick. I will begin the winter challenge sick. Sparkpeople is always giving me a trophy for consistency so this is just another area I have earned one.
I have a couple of new workout weapons on my side. I bought a new Leslie Sansone DVD. This is the 5 Mega Miles. I can use my older dvd's again too because I received a new DVD player for Christmas. I was clueless it was broken until we had a storm in November that kept me from streaming my usual routine. Drum roll please-I bought a Fit Bit. I would really like to know how much I am walking. I think it will be a great motivational tool. I also joined a new team one of the Leslie Sansone walking teams, but I've been so sick I haven't been active on it at all.
Stay warm, stay safe and stay healthy everyone.

    Sorry you are having so much troubles with your lungs .. I just hate that (and know what that is like ALLL too well). This is the first winter in 3 years I haven't had some crud in my lungs!

    Have you ever read about the role magnesium plays in regulation of lung function?

    Try some mega doses of Magnesium ..

    I've been in your situation. Things like bronchitis and pneumonia take 8 weeks to get over. I always wanted to short circuit that but my doctor would smile knowingly. Brat! LOL. I hate the wasted time too. It's time I won't get back so I usually try to do something productive with it.

    I want a fitbit too but am afraid of losing it. I'm pretty rough on stuff.

    Rhonda, sending healing vibes! I'm still coughing, too, but not nearly as violently as you are. Bronchitis is awful, so I hope it lets go of you soon!
