Coffee and Cough Syrup

I am really trying to be thankful today. It is difficult when you feel bad. This is the second time I got this chest cold this year. My lungs and chest hurt and my ribs are in pain from coughing so hard. I finally gave into the peer pressure of my husband and picked up some cough syrup on the way into work today.  The beauty of stopping for cough syrup.....COFFEE! I have been trying to not buy coffee as much as part of my new years budget, but I figured if I was going to gag down cough syrup I needed a treat. Oh delicious skinny carmel latte extra hot, how I love thee.
I took my shot of cough syrup, followed by a chaser of water and enjoyed my latte.  I did actually eat some oatmeal a little later. I am thankful that today all I have on my schedule is yoga, I just need to decide between Biggest Loser Weight Loss Yoga and P90X Yoga - how crazy do I want to be?

Any suggestions to get rid of this chest cold would be great. I hate taking medicine, but sometimes you do what you have to do. I really which I liked tea, it just sounds so nice right now.


  1. o'man, I've been struggling with a head/chest cold this week too! It stinks! My workouts aren't 100% but I'm struggling thru 'em. The BL weigh-loss Yoga is my favorite yoga of all! Love Bob!

  2. Rest, rest, rest. That's all I can say.
    Tea with honey is nice for the throat.

    Get well soon.

  3. Hope you feel better soon!

  4. When treating a cough with cough syrups, it is important to consider the active ingredients as well as both the taste and form in which the medication is taken.
