Should I or shouldn't I?

Saturday, April 27, 2013

I'm really not sure if I should exercise today or not. I have had a nasty head cold and upper respiratory infection for the last 3 days. I am stuffy and a bit weak and a bit off balance from the cold meds that I took yesterday and last night. But I am thinking I could mange a few minutes of some exercise. I really hate to miss a day!

Weird new thoughts for me since a month ago I would have seen this as a perfect excuse to "get out of" exercising!

Any thoughts from you all about working out when ill?

    If you would feel more comfortable doing a little exercising, do just a little, and then rest for the rest of the day. Be sure not to overdo it!

    Just get outside for a while and walk and afterwards take a nap or something to help you feel better. Cold are nasty things and sometimes hang on forever. Just do light exercise until you feel better.

    When I need motivation for working out I always ask myself, "have you ever regretted working out?" then answer is always no. I feel better no matter how much I was dreading in before. If you're up to it, try doing a little something.

    It is not the storms we weather, that define us; it is the way that we weather the storms! Live In His Grace! For more details on scriptures, story and lesson, read today’s “FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF FAITH” and share it with those you love. Vic.
