Lungs are overrated, anyway.

Last week I got sick. Really, really, horribly stupidly stubbornly sick. Sick enough I went to the doctor, and I don't do that unless it's REALLY REALLY bad.
So last week was kind of a joke as far as exercise goes. And when I'm sick, I give myself license to eat what sounds good.
Stupid, I know, but I do.
Example: One night's dinner was a bowl of cereal followed by an Oreo Blizzard.
Yeah, brilliant choices, eh?
Anyway, to get to the rest of my story, first a backgrounder.
I got a Roku XR (GREATEST INVENTION EVER!) (http://www.roku.com/) and so have become obsessed with Netflix again. And while poking around, I realized there are some streaming fitness DVDs, so I added them to my Instant Queue to watch via Roku. And then I got sick and forgot about them.
So Sunday I decided I was feeling better and I should get some exercise, but it was raining and cold so I didn't want to walk around the neighborhood and I was still coughing so I didn't want to go to the gym and have people stare at me like I have the Plague, so I decided to do this kickboxing DVD via Netflix via Roku.
Yeah, 25 minutes into it I nearly passed out. Know how instructors are always on you to breathe right?
Turns out it's really important.
So I quit. Baby steps. It's still raining but the coughing is getting better day by day and maybe tomorrow I will go to the gym and walk ... carefully ... on the treadmill.
