I have spent most of the past three days resting on the couch. I never know what to do when I'm sick--how hard should I push myself? I do have bronchial asthma, so I have to be careful when I get respiratory infections. I made myself do 20 easy going minutes on the elliptical this morning, and I did a lower body strength session this afternoon. I feel a lot of pressure in my chest, so I have to really watch it. So annoying. My main focus right now is keeping my food portions small since I'm not expending much energy--I don't need to add any extra calories to the mix.
Still no word from the doctor. In this case no news is sucky news. No news means that they didn't find anything wrong with my blood work--which means there is no explanation for my weight gain. I have some ideas mulling around in my head that I am excited to share in a few days, though. Maybe when I'm feeling better.
