First, you have to take care of yourself.
Second, a day off won't hurt you. I had 4, yes, 4! days off this past weekend. I hated it with a passion, I thought I'd restart and have to build up my strength and tolerance - not at all! I had strained a muscle in my back in my sleep somehow (I'm an active sleeper and twisted my shoulders but didn't let my hips follow) and couldn't move, I mean I was literally in tears from it. I jumped right back up on the wagon though and got a move on it as soon as I was feeling better.
Third, once you have some energy, it is okay to go to the gym and "sweat out the cold." Don't overkill it, your body may be telling you that YOU NEED TO REST or you won't get better.
Hope you feel better soon, don't beat yourself up over this! :)
It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle change.
