No CF again...

So last night at work I was feeling... off... not quite right. Not really bad, just not my normal self. I felt sort of warm, but attested that to the fact that I was wearing a lightweight jacket over my uniform because normally it's freezing in the restaurant. Well, I thought, maybe they finally turned the heat on and I'm being uber sensitive. So I took the jacket off, got cold, put it on, took it off, put it on... I think you can see a pattern here... anyway, at the end of shift, I decided to go purchase a new thermometer since my old one tanked on me.

So I went to the 24 hour CVS where luckily I also remembered that I needed soap! :P So I bought my thermometer and lo and behold when I got home and took my temperature there was a very slight fever. I attribute it to several things... school stress, long hours (it was 11pm by this point and I had been up since 445), and poor diet. So, I went to bed, and set the alarm for CF anyway. Well, I had a wild series of dreams last night that involved me on a train to Connecticut... WHAT? Where the crap did THAT come from? And woke up feeling even worse this morning. My fever is now slightly more pronounced and I'm actually willing to call it a low grade fever. So I opted to take off from CF... but nonetheless the fearless teacher is at her desk and ready for another day. Were I not so completely unorganized this week due to my crazy hectic weekend of work and run watching, I probably would have taken a sub. But my plans for today are so scattered, I can't leave another human to deal with this mess. So... off I go, ready for another fun filled day. Regardless of how close to death I feel... the 1/2 t-shirt will be purchased today... mark my words! :P I think I may even bring it to CF to have people sign... just a thought...
Until next time, the feast is mine! Yikes and away!

Stress affects immunity, training affects immunity too.

Long hours affects immunity.

Kids have bugs and spend a lot of time with snot on their faces...hence you get ill.

Take a break!

Feel better Katie. I went through it a couple of weeks ago. Get better and come back more rested and strong. Listen to your body.

Thanks Katie! (Just came back to see if you commented on my comment). I did 6MUs the first day and 4MUs the next day for a total of 10. I think I'm going to keep a running tally. I am the first girl at CFR to get MUs so now I can taunt them with "I'm 10 ahead of you!" LOL! Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
