I went to the doctor today, after WEEKS of feeling like crap, and it turns out that I have walking pneumonia!! Not only that, but the doctor, who deemed me "unlucky," says I also have a virus that is causing an inner ear imbalance (explaining the vertigo issues I've been having). So I am on antibiotics for the pneumonia, cough syrup to help me sleep, and meclizine for the vertigo. Lucky me.

Prior to finding out that I have pneumonia, I got my hour in on the treadmill. Boy, if I had only known how sick I was, I would have used that as an excuse not to exercise!

Had my eight glasses of water today, did my free weights, and took my vitamin.

Food-wise, I missed breakfast, because I had to get to the doctor for a morning appointment and ran out of time. I did have my two cups of coffee. I made up for it with sushi for lunch, because I knew by lunch that I was sick and I felt sorry for myself. I drank a lot of soymilk today, as well, as the sushi made me thirsty, and I also used soymilk to wash down aspirin, the antibiotics, and the multi-vitamin. Haven't had dinner yet, so not sure where I'll go with that. Probably just a piece of bread, as it is already 10:00 pm and I just took my Robitussin DM and expect to be falling asleep any second now.

Didn't do my sit-ups or push-ups today.

I am thinking I deserve a B+ today. I could have done better with my eating, but I did get all my water and exercise in. And that hour on the treadmill, despite being sick and feeling like crud, has got to be worth something!!

    I agree with Alam! You deserve an A++ for effort! I got knocked down yesterday with nothing more than a simple cold, and I haven't been to the gym for 2 days! Granted, I haven't been able to eat either...so it'll all work out!

    I hope all the meds do the trick and you're feeling better soon!

    Glad you found out what was wrong .... finally! You should have been to see a doc weeks ago. Bad, bad, madhen. Anyway I hope you start feeling better soon, which you should once the antibiotics kick in.

    I too think you deserve an A+ for effort!

    Walking Pneumonia + a treadmill = an F-
    I am glad to see you drink some fluids, because I was reading your posts thinking she is not drinking enough. You do enough physical activity just taking care of the animals. Rest and drink lots of fluids-NO treadmill for at least a week or 2 or you will hurt yourself.Please
