So, after an absence of several days – I have returned! My Sinusitis turned upper respiratory infection (I think they are just guessing and throwing out fancy sounding generic illnesses) is improving, My temperature is only 99.9 now. But that is no excuse to miss Janathon is it?
So what sort of exercise did I do? A Fullbody workout! I have been slacking for several days, so I figured I needed to jump right in. Now I will admit that I did concentrate on my abs, my diaphram and my rib muscles. I didn’t stop there however! My the scalenes, sternoclidomastoid, upper trapezius, levator costorum, paraspinals and subclavius for inhalation; and, the pectorals, serratus anterior, latissimus dorsi, and serratus posterior muscles also received a great workout and all with only one exercise!
You can see why I call it a full body workout! Now what is the one single exercise that I have done repeatedly to work these? COUGHING!!!!! Now that my fever is subsiding (or maybe because they gave me cough medicine with Codeine that actually stopped my cough for a while,) I can feel which muscles I’ve been using. And my entire body is sore. Of course it is primarily my abs/sides and such – but I can feel it in my shoulders, chest.. all over. This has been the sort of cough where you end up curling in a ball and wonder if you gave yourself a hernia.
I think the stronger Antibiotic, combined with the various support medications (Cough Syrup, Advil, Mucinex, Gatorade) are helping now. Doctor has forbidden me from work until Friday, so I suspect that other than my on-going full body workout, all other working out before then isn’t a smooth move.
I had hoped to not miss a day posting or exercising this month, but I thought that daily updates on my illness weren’t exactly gripping reading. As soon as I can get back to exercising I will be here posting my usual witty and fascinatingly interesting blog postings. Just bear with me through this “lame posting’ time. It will end soon! I promise!
