Commit to a short, easy workout, like a walk. Loop past your house, and give yourself permission to go home if you're still lacking energy. You may feel heaps better once you're out there; I know I always do.
There are no shortcuts. No magic bullets. No secret spells. What works is hard work, dedication, and a daily dose of chocolate.

If you still have a fever, it would be better to rest and allow your body to recover. If your fever is gone, that is great, but you do need to listen to your body. Once you are feeling 100% again, you can slowly increase your activity back to your pre-illness level. If you're feeling sluggish or the workout isn't going well, don't push it. When you push too much, the sickness can end up hanging around longer.
It's hard to say whether you are ready to get back to exercising, but you need to listen to what your body is telling you. If you have no energy still, then it is possible that you are not fully over what you had and your body may need some more time for recovery.
"Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it." - Michael Jordan
