Teething Troubles

Today was a complete write off.  Got up, felt shaky but headed out to walk Murdoch anyway.  Left him with the walkers for the day and headed home to get ready for work.  Couldn't stop shivering, felt really ropey and decided that I'd get nothing meaningful done at work if I was feeling this bad and rang in sick.  I then put on my onesie, turned the heating up and tried to get warm.  In addition to this, I have a grumbly wisdom tooth coming up and my mouth is pretty sore.  So all in all, not a great day.

When I decided to do Janathon, I decided not to count my daily dog walk as part of my activity.  I do it every day and because my goal was to increase my activity, counting the walk felt like a cop out.  But today it was all I got done, so it'll have to do.  I'm hoping to feel better tomorrow and get something proper done.

I hope the rest of the Janathoners are feeling a bit more perky!


  1. Hope you feel a bit better tomorrow. At least you did do something for #janathon though, so it counts. Good luck!

  2. Sorry you've had such a naff day. :( One of my wisdom teeth was playing up last week, kept waking me at night and I had to take painkillers which is something I rarely do. A mouthwash with chlorhexidine in it (Corsodyl) really helped. Hope you feel better soon!

  3. Hope you feel better soon - I use my dog walks everyday, some days are better than others & add in either running or some form of exercise!

  4. I use all my dog walks - I think I'm going to need them. You did the right thing and took a day off. Hope you feel better soon.
