What to do When You are at Home and Sick (ish)

I have been bed-ridden for the past three days. I was going to write a post about my training update, but a nasty cold and fever derailed me from that plan.

When you are sleeping for the past forty-eight plus hours under layers of blankets and smelling of Vick’s Vapour Rub, adjusting to the light when you step from underneath the covers is a little difficult. You wake up to discover that you haven’t really missed much and world continues to turn. Your appetite is returning and your senses of smell and taste are returning. There are a few things I need to take care of now that I am back in the land of the living. I am at the stage of recovery in my cold. Still a little congested, but getting my energy back and actually able to move and groove somewhat.

It’s time to take a shower and get out of these P.J’s. Also tackling your bedhead and the huge knot in the back of your head from lying on a pillow needs to be dealt with asap.


Since I’m home, now would be a good time as any to go through my junk drawer and shred the old bills from last year that have been paid already.


Continue to clean out my closet and add more things to the donation bin. Do I really need these blue suede shoes? Who am I anyway? Elvis?


Very important. Wash all bedding from the sneeze, kleenex, cough and general germy area. Put on fresh new linen. (poor Andy)


Take the last dose of the horrid Buckley’s cough syrup. Tastes like hell in liquid form, but it works.


Return to the gym tomorrow and finally get that post about my training update done.


What do you do when you’re at home recovering, but still able to get things done?

  1. Chicken soup with lots of fresh garlic (pity the family about the garlic) Hot lemon and honey and plenty of juices.

    Hope your gym time went well, and are moving towards a full recovery! 🙂
