I need to work harder

Friday, February 15, 2013

Well, the last 10 days, I have been fighting this bronchial cough. It is irriated by the effects of a sinus infection, brought on by allergies. In reality, antibiotics will not shorten the duration. This is an asthmatic cough.

I have had to put off walking to work until this passes. I do not want to prolong the coughing. It has wiped me out!

Last night, I got home from work at 6:30. I ate supper, then to the couch to rest. I fell asleep about 8:30 and slept until 4:30 this morning. It's a rare instance that I sleep that many hours. I am usually more productive on 5-6 hours. But this is twice in this course of coughing that I have given in to the sleep "monster" lol. I call it that because I feel like I am dragging my behind when I get too much sleep.

But on to what I have noticed... Even though I am getting my fitness minutes in, I am not working vigorously enough. I am not burning my total calories for the week, even with my activity level.

This has been true for at least the last two weeks. I am hoping that I can step it up soon. I would love to be able to record a loss again. I am holding steady at my current weight. So that much is good.

On to higher hopes for next week. Hopes for this respiratory system to level back out, to become a bit more productive in the exercise department. HUGS!!!

    Your body's asking for a time to heal hun, so take it easy. You'll soon be back at full strength if you rest a while- nothing negative about that.
Everybody needs rest, it's just as important as exercise and eating well.

So doctor's orders, rest! emoticon

    Hey, with breathing problems you are able to do enough to hold steady. That's a big emoticon in my book. Get better then you can really "Rock It".

    Get through sinus infection first. Bronchi can take forever. Then back on schedule, listen to your body.

  Once your body is back to 'normal', things will get back on track, I'm sure. emoticon
