I am oh so happy to report that I have finally, after three weeks of illness, kicked my strep throat! Woohoo! I had a lot of time in bed, a lot of cups of tea, a lot of time feeling down and sorry for myself, a lot of attempts at exercise while still feeling under the weather - only to crawl back into bed afterwards, and finally... I have made it out the other side! Woooohooooo!
I have found it hard to get back into my daily exercise pattern since spending three weeks enjoying the comfort of doing nothing. With my work schedule change, I also no longer need to wake up at any given time, and somehow that makes it a lot harder to get up at my previous tradition of 7am! So today I got my butt up and out the door before 8:30am and went to a PumpFit class out in Papamoa. Wow... It was hard! Both instructors were there and they took turns pushing us hard enough that we were all sweating by the end! I thought it would be hard to focus after my few weeks of rest, but turns out, I worked harder than I have in any other class! Perhaps I was trying to prove to myself that I was 100% healthy?
After the class I wasn't quite ready to head home, and my body wasn't quite ready to sit in the car, so I went for a nice leisurely walk around the Gordon Spatt Reserve. I came across such a nice little marshy bird sanctuary and enjoyed strolling along and listening to the springtime sounds of birds, birds and more birds! 

It was such a lovely morning and I am just overjoyed to say that I am feeling better!

Now.... bring on Summertime!!!!
