Going to do my cardio in a few minutes.

It would figure I’d get sick as soon as I started a log. Been pretty much just sleeping and eating these past few days.

Today I banged out 20 minutes of stairs and 2 circuits of abs.

For the rest of the day I’ll be eating and sleeping trying to shake this. Lots of vitamin C.
