Not a setback, a slowdown.

So I was really concerned a few weeks ago about my workouts suddenly backsliding. I couldn't breathe, my legs were cramping way too easily. I was getting scared. Suddenly, the night after my last terrible workout, BAM! My nose started running and did not stop for a week, at which point it solidified and completely blocked it up, and my chest became ridiculously congested and I couldn't sleep because I was coughing all. the. time. For about another 2 weeks. Finally, things are starting to feel normal for about the last week.
SO WHY CAN'T I GET MYSELF TO THE GYM?!?!?!?
Seriously, at this point, my gym membership is a fat tax for this month. I have good intentions, but I just put it off. Not unrelated, my stress level is through the roof!
I was so so scared about gaining weight back that I decided not to get on a scale until today. I figured one shock was enough, and we would deal with it from there.
I was pleasantly surprised! I LOST 6.5 lbs!!! It isn't the 2+lbs a week that I wanted to lose, but it's still DOWN and not UP!
I guess hocking lougies and not being able to breathe is a great weight loss plan.
But now it's time to get back to healthy. Tomorrow I work 9am-6:30pm, but my mom will have my boys, so I can probably sneak off to the gym for 45 minutes before picking them up! Saturday we are planning to canoe and hike, so that alone is a lot of activity, but I still am going to try to get to the gym in the morning!!
