Five days of sit-on-assery. Ugh.

Five days. FIVE DAYS people.!! That is how long I have gone without exercising. FIVE. DAYS. It is also the longest I have gone without working out in the past nine months.

STUPID COLLLLLLLLLLLLLDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!

I can feel my muscles atrophying. I can feel my cardio endurance waning. When I think about my first workout with Jillian after this...I let out a little self-pitying bleat. Maybe I should do level 2 to start? Ugh. It's just so frustrating!!

So far, the scale has been kind. I was on this excellent downward trend before the ick took over, but it's stopped. I'm at 165 today. I am really hoping that it will stay there until I can work out without hacking up a lung.

Yup, still coughing. Though it seems the fever and chills are gone as of yesterday. Won't miss THAT misery.

I guess the good news is, although I am frustrated at not being able to work out, I am not really worried. I am in this for the long haul, so this illness is only a teeny blip on the radar. I will be back to exercising regularly- it's my life now. The scale will continue to go down when my body is ready to let go of more poundage. I will meet my goal and I will keep off the weight.

Be well.

That's the spirit Tammy. Working out with a fever and chills wouldn't have been a good idea. Your body needed that rest. Glad to hear you seem to be feeling better.

You gotta get your rest Tammy! That bitch Jillian will be there waiting to torture you as soon as you are well.

You are doing good.

Gosh your post takes me back to Chambawamba's "Tub Thumper" song where they so aptly reinforce the notion that when one get's knocked down they ought to get up again.

Soon as you can, get back up again.

I'd also like to make note that I aprreciate your ability to create terms such as "sit-on-assery." I enjoy that.

Phat Nanny out...dawg...

Hope you shake the cold and the blahs soon!! Maybe you should make a small sacrifice to Jillian before you start back?! Hope all goes well and your back shredding in no time!!
