How are you today?
I can't believe it but spring has finally found its way to Düsseldorf. It was so sunny this afternoon, well still crisp though, but that doesn't matter to me as long as the sun comes out.
I had another day off and went to the doctor's because my cough still has not gone away and I'm so fed up with it. Meanwhile my whole ribcage hurts, so I was astounded when the doctor gave me his okay to go to the gym again.
I mean I'm happy but somehow I have my doubts about going to the gym with the cough and an aching ribcage you know.
Two years ago a friend's father had a bad cold and overextended himself (he was a firefighter), furthermore he didn't take meds and then after some weeks he died of a myocarditis. Since then I'm a bit afraid of working out too soon after a cold. I think I'll ask another doctor to get an alternative opinion. What do you think?

Today's outfit is one of my tried and true looks for mornings when I don't have a clue what to wear. This is one of my favourite dresses (or tunics) anyway and I wear it at least once a week because I love the fit (conceals my love-handles) and the floral pattern goes with almost anything in my wardrobe. A little print-mixing with the leo scarf is fun, I love to mix leo pieces with floral ones. And the weather allowed me to wear the new faux leather jacket for the first time, I snatched it in the H&M sale back in January for only a third of the regular price.
When I came back from the doctor's I went straight to the gym to register. You wouldn't believe how motivated I am to get rid of all the weight I've gained due to being ill so often last year. I believe I've never been so motivated about fitness before. Instead of running from doctor to doctor I'd like to go running in the park in spring, or at least working out on the cross trainer. We'll see, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the cough to disappear soon.

Speaking of motivation: by the way I've overcome my depressing boredom-days and made some plans for the weekend and for future days off. On Saturday I plan to go to the city and get a birthday present for my father's girlfriend, on Sunday I'll visit my Mum and we'll go to see my grandmother in the retirement home, then there'll be a big books fleamarket in the city soon, the flowers in the Japanese garden will start to bloom and lure me to come and take a walk there etc.
Oh and Patrick and I are going to plan an Ireland holiday for 2012 soon, I really can't wait! :)
