Got the Flu

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Usually when I get sick that is when I start to get lazy about exercising. I came down with the flu Tues and have not felt like doing anything. I am worried it will be too easy to quit so I am posting this to hold me accountable to exercise as soon as I am feeling better. I am curious do others exercise when they are sick? if anyone has any good strategies to get back on the exercise wagon or just in general how to get back on track after being sick let me know would love to hear some ideas

    Listen to your body. If you are too sick to get out of bed, exercising is clearly out of the question. If you can go for a walk, even a short one, then that may be an option. The bottom line is to get better...take good care of yourself, eat nourishing, healthy foods, follow doctor instructions (he or she can tell you if it's ok to exercise) and get the rest that your body needs.

    I hope you feel better soon!

    I just got over a sinus infection. I'm on BLC 14 (week 4 of the challenge). I knew I couldn't do big long fitness sessions so I just tried to move - 5 minutes here 5 minutes there. Even when laying in the bed I would do some mid-range leg lifts and hip circles. Don't completely stop - do SOMETHING - this way you won't be starting from scratch :)

    Feel Better!
