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.
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.
