I needed something quick and easy, too, because I've been feeling like crap all day. The flu has been going around at work with several people off with it this week, and I just started feeling a bit of a cough and sore throat coming on as I left Wednesday. By that evening I knew I had it too. So I stayed home today - I hate when sick people come to work anyway and infect others - I mean, that's how I got it, so I wasn't going to do that to anyone else. But what awful timing! I'm in the middle of the 30 Day Shred! I definitely do not want to miss any workouts at this stage, when I'm seeing and feeling results, and I have just 13 days left. Whenever I get a cold or flu, due to my allergies it almost always turns into a full-blown sinus infection. I can see signs of it, but will know by tomorrow, and if that's the case I'll have to go in for antibiotics. So what to do about working out?
Well, I slept much of the day, but I just can't stay in bed all day, sick or not. So at 4:00 pm I made a decision. Hubby was a bit worried, but I decided to go for it. Maybe it would actually help to work up a sweat! LOL So how'd I go? Honestly, it's only 20 minutes and went by pretty quickly as usual. There were only a couple of ab exercises during which the chest congestion was bothering me. I just took it easy on those exercises. By and large I didn't feel any worse for having done the workout, so I'm glad I did it. We'll see how I feel tomorrow. Ordinarily I would have no problem skipping workouts on days I don't feel well, but now? Right in the middle of the 30 Day Shred? It's not that one day would make that much difference, it's more about having committed to the 30 days and wanting to follow through. Some of the tougher moves have really gotten easier in the last couple of days, so I know it's making a difference. I used to get frequent sinus infections but I haven't had one in a very long time now. So I'm off to bed, it's early but I'm fighting to keep my eyes open right now. I really hope I'm feeling better tomorrow. Wish me luck!
