I had a good day today. It didn't necessarily start out that way. I woke up, texted my Pastor that I still wasn't feeling well, and that I wouldn't be there to teach again today. I went back to sleep for awhile, and then got up and moved to the couch... which has become my "normal" routine since becoming sick. After a little while, hubby says "Let's take the dog for a walk." So I ponder this idea, and... "okay, but just a short walk, it is still so cold, and I don't want to over do it."
We walked around the block, and then as we come back to the house, hubby veers off towards the house, and I tell him that I think I will go around again. Something about the air felt crisp and clean, and almost...renewing! So, after coming back, I sat down to take the dog's harness off, and hubby tells me I look like I feel better. You know what? I do feel better. I told him that I was going to the gym for a little while, and guess what? I got in a full workout. I did 30 minutes on the elliptical, and got in 2.89 miles. I then did a full lower body strength training workout, and then walked on the treadmill for another 30 minutes. I think all together I had close to 7 miles logged for today. WOOT! I don't know what clicked, or what made the difference, but I feel good! My head was clear, no sinus problems, no cough, no wheezing.
So tonight, I proudly log my 120 minutes of exercise!!!
