Set Backs, C'est la Vive!

Remember my previous post "What's Wrong With Me?" There was definitely something wrong with me. A couple of days later I was still feeling very rough, actually absolutely horrid to be dead honest. I was still trying to get though my day and when my husband came home he took one look at me and dragged me to the emergency. When you arrive here you are immediately triaged,(I think that is how its said) and immediately I was seen by a physician. After an exam and a chest x-ray there were answers to my problems. I had a nasty sinus infection and pneumonia! So it wasn't the low carb flu after all, well maybe partially. I actually bothered to get the flu shot this fall and wammo! LOL Anyhow I have finished my course of antibiotics and I am on inhaled steroids and Ventolin if needed. I feel much better, my head no longer feels as if it will explode and I am breathing quite nicely at last!! BUT it has put a big damper on my workouts. I am getting winded and exhausted by minor stuff for the rest of the day. I am told this will take a long time to heal. Grrrr. I need to be smarter than the wood. I have stayed on the meal plan and lost 2 lbs!! But I need to think of how to coordinate fitness without completely depleting my energy.I am considering doing 10 min intervals 3 times a day....I will give it a try. This week I did Bosu full body work out, that was like climbing Mt Everest, and today I did Zumba, was okay during but flat out for the remainder of the day. I am writing all this mostly for my benefit, for I am a terrible sicko, I push too hard too soon. So this is here to remind me be the turtle not the hare!
