So how are you doing with your exercise routine? I haven't been doing well since I have been sick. I am really exhausted and the weather has been so crummy. I would much rather walk outside than to a dvd. So I haven't been doing much of anything the past week. I have been getting lots of sleep, especially napping every day on top of 8 hours of nightly sleep. That tells me right there that I am not feeling my best. I have insomnia, so falling asleep is hard and staying asleep even harder. No problem with that lately!

I am hoping that by Tuesday we have better weather and I feel well enough to walk outside or do a dvd. I also need to do my resistance band workout with Coach Nicole tomorrow.

So I can truly say I am not over exercising!! I am resting my body, so when I do get back to regular exercise I can maintain a regular schedule of walking and strength training.

What about you? Do you exercise when you are sick? Do you over exercise and then over eat? Or are you one that can maintain good exercise habits routinely?

Just something to think about today!!

    I tend not to exercise when I'm feeling ill, especially when the asthma acts up. I to find I need more sleep when ill, and it is a good indicator of what you can do. Then when I start back with exercising I take it easy the first few times. The weather has been really something here to, we got snow again last Thursday and more coming Monday late afternoon through the night.

    I've struggled with guilt for not working out when I've been sick. Several people in SP (maybe even you, Angie) helped to rebalance my perspective. Now if I have a cold and don't feel too bad, I work out at 30% my normal level. If I have a fever, no workout. I can count on feeling better again soon and the regular energy will return.

    If I am laid out bed not moving kind of sick, there is no exercise. If I feel blah, some easy movement can make me feel better.

    I am so seldom sick that I can't say for sure whether I would exercise or not when I was -- although I did only miss one workout before I ended up in the Emergency Room with Pancreatitis, and I did walk -- VERY Slowly, and only for 10 minutes!! -- on the Day of My Surgery.
