Not dead yet

I feel as though I really should apologise for not writing a "proper" blog post in ages. Thank goodness I decided to take up the August Photo-a-Day challenge, or there would have been nothing but a big stretch of blankness here for the past couple of weeks.

It's not just blogging that's been neglected; I've missed quite a few days' work, haven't been to the gym in at least a couple of weeks, and the house is in a worse state than usual. I haven't been this sick in a long time...and I hope not to repeat the experience in a hurry.

The vile bug that I was struck down by has finally almost, but not quite, vacated the premises. It was a doozy of an upper respiratory tract infection, one that refused to be evicted no matter what. Today marks fifteen days since it launched its guerrilla attack on my immune system. Yay....  

Add to that a nasty bout of asthma (requiring a tenfold increase in my daily dose of preventer medication) plus a steep increase in pain and decrease in range of motion in my injured shoulder and I've been feeling generally pretty crappy.

However, it's not all doom and gloom around here. I expect my lungs to be back to normal by the end of the week, and I have a plan to sort out my stupid shoulder - but that's the subject of a separate post.

Anyhoo, frustrating though it is, I'm not getting my feathers all ruffled over yet another setback - my fitness plans may have been delayed a bit, but I have faith that things are going to turn out just fine in the end.

Glad you're on the mend. I now have a sore throat and it's very annoying - though not too debilitating (yet!).
