I've been sick for 2 weeks now. The first week I had strep throat and then over last weekend it became the flu that's been going around. I've been coughing and achy all this last week. I haven't worked out since last Saturday aside from a few short walks this week. I've tried to stay on top of healthy eating but it's hard when you're laying at home all day resting. I've definitely fallen off the horse these last 2 weeks and let sickness be an excuse. Yes, if I'm sick, I should be resting more and not pushing as hard at workouts but I probably could've pushed out some longer walks or a few Zumba videos here and there. And the eating, that shouldn't have been a problem. So... starting tomorrow, I'm getting back on track. Tomorrow I plan to go to the gym or for a walk and do 30 minutes of some moderate exercise and I'll start logging my food intake in my food journal again tomorrow. No more snack attacks. Just because I'm trying to get over the flu doesn't mean I should lose sight on my bigger goals.
I've definitely lost my motivation but, there's no reason I shouldn't find it again.
