Well the verdict is in. I went to the Y...decided to do a new 'course' on the exercise bike and then ended up sick and nauseous. So, instead of completing my strength training, I went home. I still feel awful and I really shouldn't have overdid it on the bike. Next time, I'll listen to my body and probably stay home and rest :)
Thanks for the support.

I'm going to answer by not answering :) It's really up to you. If you feel up to it, then exercise probably isn't going to be bad for you. If you start and it makes you feel worse, then absolutely stop, but you might find it helps you feel better.

I would say if you really want to do something, do something low intensity--a walk, pilates, etc. If you do something high impact, intense cardio it could make you feel sicker...

It's ok to take time off but if you feel ok and you want to, just take it easy

I vote no. Take a rest, get back on track when you feel better.

I would play it by ear. Like you said, if you feel up to it, go for it. If you don't, take a rest; if you find you start the workout and don't feel well, by all means stop. I'm the same way with my workouts that I don't like to miss them, but it's more important you stay healthy and feel better. Hope you feel better soon!! Being sick's no fun!

Today, my stomach has been pretty upset, but when I'm not running to the bathroom, I feel fine. Should I still do my workout tonight as long as I continue to feel up to it? If I do, I'll probably not workout at the same intensity that I normally do. But I really don't want to miss my scheduled workout without a good reason. (does it sound like I'm asking permission? lol)
