So far, So good – D187

21 Dec

When I awoke this morning I have to say I was slightly disappointed.  It is not that I bought into the End of the World hoopla surrounding 12/21/12 but it did make me wonder.

What would happen if the world ended on Friday?

7 Day Forecast

I was a little anxious last night as I went to bed.  Would we all just cease to exist?  Would we suffer through a slow, horrible, fiery death?  How does the world go about ending itself?

But alas, I think we are in the clear; just another Friday to endure.

On a happy note I am still fighting (and maybe even winning) the battle with the onset of a cold.  I took another Green SuperFood last night and I think it bought me some more time.  Going to douse my system with another one tonight and pray for the best!

Avoiding the Inevitable – D186

20 Dec

I have put up the good fight but inevitably I am on the brink of losing my battle.

For the past week I have been pounding back copious quantities of Odwalla Green Machine and Naked Red Machine.  I even tried a  Bolthouse Farms Green Goodness this morning for something different.  Each morning, in addition to my tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, I have been taking Wellness Formula with an Astragalus capsule.  In the afternoon I take a Stress B-Complex and then more Wellness Formula before I go to bed.

It all started last Thursday.  In addition to the extra work I have taken on and the end of my semester I have had a string of late soccer games each week.  Usually the 10 and 11pm games are spaced out so I will only have one every two or three weeks.  For what ever reason, this session, they have been falling every week.  When I woke up Thursday morning with a little congestion I figured it was just allergies and brushed it off.  Around 3pm I realized the congestion was not going away and my throat was starting to feel a tad raw.  And so began the influx of vitamins and minerals into my system.  Either Sunday or Monday night I forgot to take my Wellness Formula and felt the congestion return the next morning.  I supplemented my morning intake with a chocolate Green SuperFood and a heavy shot of cream (that stuff is magic but it tastes like crap); that seemed to put me back on track but last night on my way home from my soccer game I could feel the cold raging against my body.  You know that extreme exhaustion that makes your shoulders sag and your chest feel heavy?  That was me last night.  Again this morning I work up with a hint of congestion and here I sit, two o’clock in the afternoon, and I can feel the body aches setting in.

I am a firm believer in mind over matter, especially when it comes to being sick.  Husband, on the other hand, tends to wallow in his misery.  (But I have to give him credit – he very rarely gets sick anymore.)  I can usually will myself better if I catch my cold symptoms early enough and if not, the really brutal part of my colds tend to only last for one to two days while Husband’s can drag on for five to seven.  If I time it just right the perfect bowl of Phở and a good night’s sleep are often all I need to knock a cold down.

I have been fighting hard for the last week but I just do not think I am going to win this time.
