Here comes a cold, but I will not allow this to happen! I do not want to be sick! I am unwilling to waste my precious time off from work! I don't want to go through a box of tissues a day or not be able to taste my food! This is NOT happening! Time to take preventive action!

advice when you start to feel ill?!
These all have their place, but lately I have one preferred method for combating an oncoming cold: increased physical activity.
Tonight I felt the first hint of a cold (coupled with allergies, which always complicates things), and so I ramped up my physical activity. I coerced my oldest son into helping me sift the last of the rock pile in the front yard ... and then further coerced him into taking MANY wheelbarrows of dirt from the front to the back yard. This was thoroughly exhausting (my son and I both agreed) ... but it wasn't enough! So I went and played 90 minutes of basketball (3 on 3) and really got my sweat on.
There is just something about physical activity that always makes me feel like I can beat this cold down until it doesn't dare show up again. #feelingincontrol :)
Song Of The Day:
I haven't heard the song "Smile" by the artist Vitamin C in way too long. So it certainly fits here, both for her name and the fact that winning a battle against a cold certainly makes me smile!
