Did You Get Sick Over the Holidays?

I love the holidays for many reasons, but for many other reasons I am excited for them to finally be over. I can't think of the last time I didn't get sick over the holidays and this past holiday is no exception. From constantly traveling to having a jam-packed schedule, I always find myself a little under the weather at some point. I am finally over a nasty little cold and excited to be able to get back into my regular schedule with working out, but what about you guys . . .

I didn't get sick over the holidays, but I did get sick coming back from a vacation last thursday. I hate airplanes...if I don't end up with migranes from flying, then I get a cold.

I'm a teacher so I think I've encountered enough cold viruses that I don't get sick as much. Let's hope I stay this lucky.

I was SO sick last year for Christmas, the first day we arrived at family's house. This year wasn't as bad but I did have to fight off the sniffles and a sore throat.

I think I was the only one who wasn't sick! I don't know how I managed it either considering I ate like crap all break.

I have had an awful cough for over a week now, but it's my only symptom. No sore throat, no stuffy or runny nose, no fever, nothing. I did, however, pull a muscle in my side from coughing so hard. I can't decide whether or not I should go to the doctor.

I usually do but I think because I quit smoking in Sept. was the reason I didn't.

Usually I do, but I didn't because I got my first flu shot ever! And I took care of myself by exercising and taking my vitamins! Yay! Haha.

Every year like clockwork it's either Thanksgiving or Christmas; this year it was Christmas! I also tend to get a little sick (mostly allergies though) over spring break depending on how the weather is, which as any college student will tell you sucks something major!
