A step backwards
Sunday, September 29, 2013
So it would seem that my working out on Wednesday actually turned out to be a bad thing. I am now fully down with a head cold. I can't breathe hardly at all, I am coughing up phlegm and I feel like I am in a fog. I have been coughing and sneezing so much my ribs are hurting. My throat is killing me and so working out is practically impossible right now. Though I am trying to make sure I am still moving around at least as much as I am sitting. Stuff like doing housework and walking around.
Instead of using the way I feel as an excuse to eat poorly I am actually going to use this time to work on my eating habits. Now that it is cooler I think I am going to start working on soups and stews full of veggies. I will most likely be taking this whole next week off of my work out program so I can heal myself. But once I am better I will be picking it up right where I left off.
I am drinking as much water as I can. I will probably be checking out some tea and seeing if that will help me get better. I also plan on making some bone broth this week and drinking that to help me get better.
I was worried about taking time off to heal so I pushed through it mid last week and now I am down completely. I hope no one thinks I am being a wuss. I really don't want to be taking this time off at all but I can't workout if I can't breathe without coughing. I hope I haven't let anybody down.
