I have been there before joining SP and I had to stop everything as I thought I would die when I tried to exercised just couldn't do it. I felt guilty also. But when you start feeling better just start slow again. Good luck & God bless Will be praying for you.

when you are sick you need to let your body heal. sometimes i do some yoga- it seems to be doable and it also helps me to channel some of my own positive and healing energies! hope you feel better very soon!

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
It's great you posted! I'm sure you'll find many suggestions here!
1) Pay attention to your body and give yourself a break till you feel better.
2) I'm a big believer in flushing out bugs with EXTRA water, more than ever!
3) As you feel able, try some of the SparkPeople exercises, just a bit...see how your body reacts...does it drag you down further? Back off...! Do you feel better? Terrific! Enjoy! But in moderation with only a gradual picking up of the pace as tolerated.
Can't wait for you to lick this bug and put it behind you!

I have been fighting this flu thing for several days now, following a very busy week with my child's birthday parties and having company from out of town. I tried going to the gym with my sister tonight, but the heavier I was breathing, the more my throat felt like it was going to start bleeding. My body aches have decreased today, and I am feeling better in some ways, but worse in others. I know that I shouldn't be worried about not exercising enough right now, and that I should focus on getting better before heading to the gym, but I feel guilty not exercising. Any ideas of some exercises that would help ease my guilt without making me over do it?
