I'm doomed

Who did I marry and how did I get so lucky?

Biking while sick (take that Dr. Anonymousness)

Turns out I wasn't really getting better. I ended up having to go back to the doctor. She proceeded to tell me that I was more sick than I felt (still not sure how I feel about that). Anyway, she put me on all sorts of drugs, sprays, and inhalers. She also told me I had to stop biking. When I asked if I really had to stop biking and if all of the prescriptions were necessary, she scared me with visions of pneumonia and long term breathing problems.

In the end, I promised to fill all of her prescriptions as long as I was allowed to keep biking. A deal was struck and off I went.

My crazy pile of meds.

It turns out the stuff really is helping me out. I only wake up once or twice a night now, and have minimized my coughing (much to Liz's delight). I have to go back on Monday for a checkup because the doctor said I had to. I also asked if this was necessary, and she insisted that it was. She used the pneumonia word again to help convince me.

Final thought, nasal sprays really creep me out.

The doctor told me to drink lots of tea. This won't be a problem. (plus the last post was a bit of a downer without a picture)

I'm really happy with my current selection. Liz and I just finished up a cool jasmine tea with some kind of white flowers in it, but there are still lots of choices. I also love that out of all the teas in the picture, the ones I like the best are the ones given to me by friends! How's that for sentimental.

Getting better all the time

I've haven't been blogging much because of the holidays and because I haven't been biking AT ALL. Yikes. It's to the point where I think I'm loosing my fitness level. Yesterday I walked up three flight of stairs and almost had to sit down to catch my breath.

I've also had a bad cold for the past week, and I don't think that has helped. Anyway, now I'm some antibiotics for the infection. I think it is helping. We'll see if I can get better quicker and back on the bike now.

For all of you who voted, I haven't forgotten about the winter cycling goal! I just haven't figured out how to start it yet. Since we have our first real snow today, I probably should start soon. more on this later.
