I've got a cold again

Grrrr I've got another cold! All this jetting around the world really does nothing for the old immune system. I first picked up a nasty cold in England at the beginning of January, and it never really went away (well it died down to a hacking cough) - and then yesterday it resurfaced. Or else I've picked up another one. Anyway, the runny nose and sore throat are BA-ACK and I'm pretty fed-up with it. Having a cold in Summer just makes you feel worse than it usually does!

Tomorrow is my birthday (32... *shudder*) and I dont think we're doing anything. The holiday sort of counted as our combined Christmas/Birthday treats this year, but maybe we'll go out for dinner or something. If my nose doesn't unblock, I might not be able to taste anything though!

On Monday I go back to work (groan) and I'm also going to get stuck back into training and clean eating. Going to spend this weekend writing my goals which should take me up to my first eye operation, which is the 15th of March. During the eye operation period, I'm not really sure how much exercise I'm going to be allowed to do, apparently they frown on any sport or exercise for a few weeks afterwards.

Kerry tagged me with this a little while ago - I'm a few weeks behind sorry!

Make sure you look after yourself. When I get colds, I always burn eucaplytus oil in my oil burner to help with my breathing at night. I also have extra fresh garlic with my meals and double my multi vitamin and vitamin c intake. And let's not forget good old h2o to flush out the system. Colds are the worst because you can't cure the damn things instead we just have to wait it out and do what little we can. ;o) xx

Hi Hilary, sounds like you just need to rest up!!! I know its frustrating but lots of rest, good food and water and you should be feeling better. But don't get back into your training until your 100% otherwise the cold will just linger on! Hope you have a great Birthday whatever you decide to do. Get better really soon. Hilds

32! In your pics you look so young that I imagined you to be around my age, (26).

You're an example that healthy eating and great training can keep ya looking young!

Awww, cold suck don't they :( Going in and out of different climates, plus all those germies on planes are always guaranteed to give you some sort of illness.
Hope it eases up soon.

So that means you'll be able to go to PHAT CAMP!!!!!?!?!?
