2-27 to 3-3-2017 Strep/Pneumonia

Been a terrible week. Missed work everyday and been terribly sick. Strep throat and I think pneumonia as well. Very nasty productive cough, fever , terrible ear aches, sore throat and lost my voice. Started high dose antibiotics finally yesterday and hopefully on the mend but doubtful I will be training for the next day or two at least. Been forcing myself to eat a little but diet has been terrible, expect when I step on the scales to see at least 10 pounds lost this week. Praying next week will be better.
