*Going for the record of blogger to use the word "phlegm" most in one post. Go ahead, count 'em. Here's a freebie: PHLEGM!
Not to gross, but what the hell is this shit I am hacking outta my lungs?!? Whatever it is, it's getting old. Fast. To top things off, I am left with this sad, croaky version of my voice that is sometimes completely choked off by the phlegmy monstrosities that emerge from below. Fan-freakin-tastic!
But other than a slightly sore chest and irritated throat, I feel FINE. Weird. Still, I am not at work today because talking is really hard, and it makes cough more when I do. Not great for teaching...for which I talk all the livelong day.
Good news though! I weighed in at 166 today! I know! Wtf?!? The scale gods are just beaming down on me lately! I'll take it though I will continue to watch those capricious gods with the narrowed, suspicious eyes of one once burned. You hear me scale gods?!? Gots my eyes on you!
This stupid chest cold reared its ugly head during my workout on Tuesday. I tried to ride the bike, and as I started to breathe heavy, the ol' phlegm began to rattle and I started to cough. Still got in about 25 min with my 8 lbs weights for added fun. Yesterday I had off, and today I dunno. I didn't Shred Tues. as I normally would have because my poor hubby was all back sore (really, really bad then- but doing better now) and had to stay on the couch. No freakin' way am I gonna shred with my ass two feet from his face! He's not allowed to even come into the room when I am shredding. Partly because I look completely ridiculous, and partly because I need to concentrate on that shit and I tend to lose it if he's around.
I guess I am doing something right to lose nearly 5 lbs this week! I'll take it!
Off I go to enjoy being the giant working cog in the phlegm factory! Mmmm. Phlegm.
