It depends on what is considered feeling bad...am I sick and feel bad...or do I just feel bad in not wanting to not do anything (depressed)...

Either way, I try to push myself even though I feel bad because exercise can help in either case, but there are times when I may be running a fever or congested to the point where feeling bad = nothing will get done emoticon

I do. I have a "No Excuses" policy with with exception of vomiting. I find when I do have a cold, I feel much better after exercising, like I'm getting rid of the toxins. I do take it a little easier on days I don't feel well - maybe talk a walk instead of something intense.

I still workout but I do low impact workouts. Going for a walk or lifting lighter weights than what I'm used to. But I don't go crazy on the workouts when under the weather, unless I'm in a funk and need to lift my spirits, then I just go for a long hard run!

I know it cheers me up. Yesterday I was feeling under the weather and hopped up and went. Today I woke up really sick(no throwing up, fever, or hacking up a lung though). Still got my butt to the gym. That feel good feeling at the end of the work out made me feel much better that the medicine I took that morning did.

When I feel bad is when I HAVE to exercise...that's what the challenge has done for me...take the "should I or shouldn't I" out of it. Less wiggle room for excuses. I find it energizing...I also make lots of decisions in life that support my goals...there's no late nights or coffee or alcohol.

I do even when I feel bad. I usually find it doesn't make me feel any worse, and sometimes makes me feel better. When I don't feel well I do take it easy though. Just walking or stationary bike usually on days like that - nothing crazy.

Thank you! I didn't do a workout today but I did log over 6200 steps and my goal is 5000 so I feel like this will not break my streak. I took a nap on my lunch break and I feel a little better.

I still do, unless I have body aches, etc.
I once read this rule of thumb-- if your symptoms are above the neck, continue your exercise, if they are below the neck, rest.

I have to train whether I feel good or bad, it is my job but I would never advise someone to exercise if they were feeling bad, they could have underlying health complications. It is the bodies way of trying to get you to rest and take care of yourself.

Take the time off you need to recover and get better. Just watch your caloric intake and always listen to your body. emoticon may you feel better soon.

I usually don't. Instead I try and get extra sleep and nurture myself a lot. When I do exercise when I don't feel good, the little energy I have is taken and then I feel even worse the next day. Self-care is critical when you're sick, so if you feel like you must do something, I would recommend a leisurely walk...and lots of rest. Hope this helps!

With God, ALL things ARE possible!

I have got a pretty good little streak going and don't want to break it but today I can barely hold my head up. Do you still exercise when you feel bad? What light impact exercises do you find helpful on days like this?
