Welcome JKenney! I support everything everyone has posted. I'm a fitness instructor & I started low-carbs on one of my 'light week' schedules at the club. I'm glad I did. The next week was my teach 2x - 3x a day 4-5 days a week. Believe me . . . it was a struggle to keep my muscles, brain & breathing coordinated for endurance.
Today I'm still struggling with this cold. I have a doc appt tomorrow. The cough is annoying & my throat is more annoying. Ice water . . . water . . . water with lemon & more ice water . . . is the only thing besides those horrible throat lozenges that are full of chemicals . . .that quiet the discomfort.
I haven't gained any weight . . . and I make myself eat my food plan . . . and I want to sleep. I also have a habit of having these type of upper chest colds turning into pneumonia. I'd rather use an ounce of prevention . . . than to have to go on heavy antibiotics. Antibiotics are poison . . . they are to kill the bad stuff . . . and hopefully not kill the good stuff. I'll stop & purchase some probiotics on my way home from doc tomorrow.
I'm a very lucky woman. I want to ride my bike & lift weights but . . . I'm also smart . . . and will wait until my body can function & breathe without coughing up a lung. I'm walking backwards within my home. Laugh if you will . . . but walking backwards balances the hip area, increases balance, as well as uses the cervical vertebrae rotation to keep from bumping into stuff.
YIPPEE! Life is a roller coaster! I LOVE roller coasters! Connie
