sick sick sick of being sick -- again!

I don’t think I’ve had a single full week of good health since Christmas. This week it’s been the miserable cold-from-hell. Everyone else in the family already had it, and I though perhaps I’d escape…but no. Last week I had three days of that awful “I feel like I’m getting sick even though I don’t have any symptoms” feelings, and then it hit me like a truck, and I’ve been stuffed up and coughing since Wednesday night. I don’t want to grade, I don’t want to teach, I don’t want to write, and I have to do all of those things.

Given how susceptible to illness I seem to have become, I think it’s time for me to do a serious overhaul of my diet and exercise. I’ve become a slug, a slug that eats too much junk food, and I really need to make some changes. Right now I’m pretty much subsisting off of tea and matzo ball soup, but once I’m healthy again I’m really going to try to cut way back on all the sugar and refined carbs, and really really try to start exercising regularly again.
