Foolproof weight loss

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

Get the flu!

Yep, for the low, low price of getting influenza you can lose weight without any effort at all.

So, Friday I was feeling like rubbish. Saturday I wasn't well, but powered on. Sunday I was so sick I couldn't even get out of bed. Fever, chills, sweats, sore throat, runny nose, body aches, nausea... If if was a flu symptom, I had it. My husband dragged me to the after hours doctor on Sunday evening because he was so worried about me. All the doctor could do for me was write me a note for the week off work and give me some pills for the nausea. I've been in bed since.

I'm feeling a lot better than I was, but no where near 100%. I'll probably be back to 100% in another week -10 days. The flu REALLY takes it out of you. The exhaustion sucks. I got really bored yesterday so I folded some washing. Then I had to lay down! I've also lost my appetite, big time. I didn't really eat for 3 days, and now I do get hungry but nothing sounds good, and I can only eat about half of my normal serving before feeling sick.

So, silver lining is that I've lost around 2 kilos in a week. See, fool proof. As long as you like being sick. Personally, I think there are easier ways to lose weight!

It goes without saying that the workouts are on hold. I went to the gym last Monday, and was too tired to go on the Thursday. Now I know why! Old me would've still been working out! Crazyness. I'm doing nothing but resting for AT LEAST another week. Then I'm moving to a new gym that is right by my new house and only a few minutes from work. I'm excited to get back to the gym so I'm checking out what classes I might want to try. But like I said, I'm in no hurry. At least another week off, probably closer to a week and a half. I'll re-evaluate next weekend.

    Touch wood, no cold or flu for over a year.

I hope that you are soon over yours, but remember, don't go rushing back in when you are - baby steps!
