Felt a lot better today. Only up to take my asthma meds a couple of times last nite. Had a little more energy and a little less coughing. I did the first 2 Videos for the 28 day challenge. I also got out of the house today. The cold air triggered some coughing but it was nice to get out.
Tonight I marched in front of the TV for 30 min to get my first cardio in 5 days. Woo Hoo! It felt great. The funny thing is that it actually got my heart rate up. I felt like I'm starting from square one, but I know as my cold and asthma improve my fitness will improve.
I got on the scale for the first time in 5 days and while I've been sick, I went down from 186 to 183. Boy, I wish it were real, but I have a feeling its dehydration cause I haven't been eating or drinking well since being sick. I ate and drank well today. I'm not going to record the 183 or weigh again until Friday. This week I will try to eat 500 calories less than I burn each day and hope that this illness was my unexpected plateau buster.
