Still no exercise for me...

Monday, February 24, 2014

I'm still sick today...so I'm going to concentrate on getting better by resting and drinking plenty of fluids.
I still feel guilty about not working out...but I'm learning that I need to not let fear rule my life. And that's exactly what was happening. I felt guilty for not working out because in the back of my mind I was afraid I would stop altogether. I know now that my desire to change isn't going to go away just because I got lazy. Being sick isn't the same as being lazy. I just need to keep going on SP and looking at my message boards to remember why I'm making this life change.
So to all that have been encouraging me, I thank you! Hopefully this flu will be gone soon and all will go back to normal!

    Sick is NOT the same as lazy!
Plenty of fluids, plenty of rest, that's what you need!
Keep blogging, too. It will keep reminding you why we're all doing this.

Sunday, February 23, 2014


This flu has officially whooped my butt. I have absolutely no energy or motivation to do anything today...so I guess today will be my rest day!

    I know just exactly how you feel. Im reading and watching with watery eyes. holding a kleenex to my nose. It aches so bad between my shoulder blades and chest. I got the flu shot also. But so many kinds going around. It just has to run its course. With alot of weather changes the body doesn't know what to do. Hot tea and warm oatmeal sure felt good. Im cleaning out the meds sitting around here.
One thing good about it, Im not eating much. :-). You take care of yourself.

    Thank you! I'm definitely trying! And I didn't let guilt make me give in and push myself. I actually did absolutely nothing today. Just laid in my recliner and watched tv. Now I'm going to go to bed, because I feel worse now than I did earlier. But I'm keeping myself hydrated and resting, so I know This Too Shall Pass.

being sick really sucks

Saturday, February 22, 2014

Still sick...and it's getting worse now. It's gone from just my sinuses to my lungs. Achey and sore all over. But even feeling like complete garbage I managed to do not just one hour, but an hour and a half on the treadmill!!! I figured I'd try to sweat this damned thing out of me (excuse my language please). It was my best workout ever!!! I have never been able to do 4mph for more than 5 minutes in an entire workout session...but today I did 15 minutes at 4 mph!!! Granted it was 5 min at 4mph, 5 min at 3 mph, and so on and so forth. I actually felt a little better after I got off the treadmill...but I don't know if that was just the endorphins, or what. Because now I feel soooooooo much worse!!!
But I feel guilty for not working out! And Monday is my weigh-in and last week I actually GAINED weight!!! Not only that, but I surpassed my previous all-time-high-weight!!! Maybe that's what's been fueling me to workout even when I really want to just snuggle up in bed and never come out! I have this intense fear that I won't be able to hit my goal weight!! I know that's counter-productive, but I don't know how to let go of the fear!!
Okay...the DH just brought me some dinner and since I have had little to no appetite, I guess I should at least try. Especially since I haven't eaten since breakfast.
Okay...signing off! G'night all!

    I hope you feel better. Remember, when your body is coming down with something, or very sick, you retain a lot of water, so that might have something to do with your gain. Rest and lots of fluids, and try not to beat yourself up if you are too sick to exercise. Give yourself some loving care. emoticon

Did an hr on the treadmill even with the flu!!

Friday, February 21, 2014

Yes...you read that right! I was going to take a "rest day", but I felt so guilty that I ended up doing an hour on the treadmill! I was really hoping to get back to an hour and a half, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I feel like a freight train just ran over me, but I did it! :)

  How did you do that? Did you have a flu shot so that your flu was mild? When I had the real real flu I was so sick I couldn't get out of bed or do anything at all, never mind actually walking, never mind a treadmill!

Only did 1 hr on the treadmill today... :(

Thursday, February 20, 2014

I NEVER thought I would EVER say that I "only did 1 hr" of ANY kind of workout in my life!!! LOL!!! No video blog today, because I have to hurry up and get ready to go grab dinner with my DH. I wasn't even sure I would be able to work out at all today! We had to make an unexpected trip down to Peabody, Mass to look at prospective places to live since our lease is up at the end of March. But I did it!
I did 15 minutes at 2.5 mph, 15 minutes at 3 mph, 5 minutes at 4 mph, and finished off with 25 minutes at 3 mph. Not too shabby for a "short" workout session! LOL!
I have to admit...my plantar faciitis was acting up after the 4 mph part!! I haven't had problems with that in years! Since I hit my heaviest (at that point in my life) and was diagnosed with diabetes! I lost 32 pounds using SP and kept it off for a few years...but gained all of it back in the last 9 months. (It's been a very stressful year)
Okay...I better boogie if we're going to find any restaurants still open!
I hope everyone had a great day today!! :)

    Good for you! Making time for fitness in a busy day is really something to celebrate.

There are lots of things you can do to keep plantar fasciitis from being too much of a problem (exercises, tape, ice, compression socks, shoe supports).
