good luck! Also, please take probiotics to get the good bacteria in your gut. After all those antibiotics, it wiped out the good stuff.

Thanks. I am feeling much more chipper though one ear is still being stubborn, leaving my energy a bit lower than I'd like. The antibiotics continue for another week. After that, the gym. For now I'm just doing some walking and stretching. taking it slow because I sure want to enjoy our cruise next week emoticon

SWIMOM,

Don't try to do too much too soon or you risk getting sick again. Even though you may feel better, your body may still be recovering. Thus the reason to slowly ease back into a routine. If you haven't been exercising for six weeks or longer, I would suggest starting with a daily walk.

As your energy begins to return, you can slowly add back things like strength training and more intense workouts. For now, take it easy. Too many people jump right back into their routine and end up getting injured as a result.

I know everyone wants the weight to be off as quickly as possible, but the fact is... you didn't gain the weight overnight, it's not coming off overnight.

Take it easy the first couple of weeks. Listen to your body. if you get fatigued, stop ! Don't push through the pain or the fatigue. Give your body a chance to adapt to the new routine. That's why you start with a daily walk. You add a little each week until you do feel comfortable.

To ensure that you do this safely, check with your Dr to see if he/she suggests any restrictions, and when you start, do so with baby steps again. You can't expect to pick up where you left off.

Good luck,
Kris

Well, it's been 6 weeks since I last went to the gym. The cold I caught turned into pneumonia, a double ear and sinus infection. I only get sick about every five years. When I do, I do it right!

Haven't gained any weight but haven't lost any either. I have a week to get back into a routine before heading off on a vacation cruise...wish me luck :)
