First cold since retirement

About four weeks into my retirement and I've gotten my first cold since then, most likely picked up from my teenage son Kailen.  I'd been wondering if maybe I could fight colds off now that I don't have the stress of going to work, but no such luck.
It does seem to be mellower than most of my colds--I haven't had to use a breathing strip at night, for example.
One negative is that since heavy exercise with a cold usually worsens my lung congestion, I haven't been working out as hard, just doing a little walking and stretches. Combined with being home near a fridge, I've gained a couple pounds.
Gotta watch that.
