Back to the Grind

Barely felt any kind of sinus issue today thankfully. I've been keeping on top of the Zicam, and Sudafed routine, along with all the routine meds. My nurse at Hopkins called me today and said that I'm already doing everything the recommend, so that was good. The only problem is that this was a different nurse that the one who told me they'd call me in the "just in case" med. Hmm not sure what I should do since the nurse from today didn't see that it was necessary. I know it's not necessary right now, but we're going away and I do like the idea of having an antibiotic in case this sinus stuff comes back and or turns into an infection while we're away. What to do what to do....

First day back to work after a nice 3 day weekend. It was nice for the most part, but I could just do with out my bosses "negative nancy" attitude all the time. She's such a downer! I try not to let people like that get to me, but sometimes it just bugs me.

Well the rain wouldn't let me run outside today or ride my bike. That's ok though, I did the Eliptical for 25 minutes and ran my butt off! Also did my 2 10 lb. weight lifting. I think I need to do some research on beneficial upper body exercises with my weights. I do about 3 different things with my weights right now, but I'd like to perhaps find something that would be really good for me to do. Thoughts?

Don't let those "Debbie Downers" get to you! You have too much awesome stuff in your life to even entertain their negative vibes.

Glad you're feeling better! And great job on the cardio...keep those lungs open!!!

Also, if you want some advice on workouts, I'd be happy to send some over for you. Just tell me what you want to work and what you're trying to accomplish.

I subscribe to a magazine "Fitness: Mind, Body, and Spirit" which gives great work out ideas. Getting it monthly helps to have lots of different work outs, which I need so I dont get bored.

Hey there, email me at coachsharpe@cox.net and I'll send you some different workouts for arms, shoulders, legs, etc...I think the key in weight lifting for us is to never stop moving in the gym. It turns into a cardio workout while you're lifting weights and forces you to take deep breaths.

I'm sure you've heard this before, but as far as cardio, there is nothing better than swimming. I don't do it personally, but CFers I know who swim, or took up swimming, generally report an increase in lung function. It's all about breathing when you're swimming laps :)

If you let me know exactly what muscle groups you want to work on, I can tailor a workout just for you. I've done it for other CFers, so it's no big deal to me.

Let me know what I can do to help.
