lurgy

I have had a lurgy for the last few days, muscle aches, sore throat and cough/cold.  I had been fighting it since last week and my last rostered shift was Monday.  I was almost without voice at start of shift but by the end of the shift, I had no voice.  So I spent my days off, sick and looking after two sick children who obviously caught it off me, DOH!  I really hate Winter bugs, very annoying and disruptive to family life!  I am now due back to work today but  feel heaps better although I still sound disgusting.  Thankfully I only have to get through two shifts and then I am on days off again :D    

I missed my appointment this week with foot specialist but have been continuing to do my foot exercises.  I have also started doing some core exercises, Bicycle Crunch exercises, Planks and Crossover Crunches.  I am very happy to say I have sore abs :)

Caught up with RJ and family on Sunday.  I finished work at 1pm and although I was feeling crappy, met RJ down the Tan and did a lap and a half of walk/running.  It was such a beautiful day with lots of people about.  We had a coffee afterwards and then went back to RJ’s place where all the family were.  Relaxed the rest of the afternoon and stayed for dinner.  We had a roast lamb dinner followed by deserts from RJ’s bakery.  It was a great day and we haven’t done it in ages because RJ works till late on Saturday and I am usually rostered on over entire week-end.  I have missed our get togethers, pesky work!  We have planned to go to the Dandenong Ranges on Sunday and have a family barbeque.  We were talking about how we use to do all sorts of things, the four of us, but once the kids came along, it all seemed to stop!  We have made a commitment to start doing family stuff with the kids and if somehow, RJ and I can incorporate a little exercise into it, all the better :D  RJ suggested we do the 1000 steps  :shock:

    Let me know when you are heading to the steps- I have never been there before and have only heard about the madness!

  2. I’ve been thinking about trying those steps too! Can I come?

  3. Hi Lee, good to see you back blogging. I’ve had a lot of injuries lately too and just starting to get back into it slowly. Am living in Resi now so if you want some company for a slow walk-run, just let me know.
