I did the math. If I work out my normal schedule all week AND do yoga, I'll be able to get my 1000 minutes for February.

Except I feel really crummy today. I was starting to feel under the weather last night, woke up last night sneezing and struggling to breathe, and am coughing and stuffed up today.

Bah humbug. I really want to get back on track--I'm even wearing my work out clothes--but I just don't know if it's a good idea since I'm still stuffed up and coughing and generally feeling lousy.

Discretion may be the better part of valor today.

But I'm sooo tired of getting sick all the time.

    I know how you feel! I had to skip last week's workouts altogether because I just wasn't feeling well enough to exercise. As frustrating as it is, it's best to listen to your body and give it time to get better. You'll be working out again in no time!

    Feel better soon!! :)

    HI, Zanna
    I found myself in a similar predicament yesterday...put my gym clothes on and just sat around for a couple of hours, "planning" to workout...the only difference is that I wasn't sick! :P I think you should just rest until you feel better...sometimes, working out only makes matters worse. Hope you feel better soon though! Take care. -Rainey

    If you want to get in the exercise minutes, just do some lighter intensity exercise. I find that when I'm congested that a light workout can help clear everything out faster. I just walk or Wii Fit. I don't do the Tae Bo or try to jog at all.

    Feel better soon!

    You have just been under a lot of stress, with your computer woes !
    That can really wreak havoc on your immune system !
    I recommend that you take a few days, just to stop and "smell the roses."
    Take some time, just for you !
    After some "time off ", you'll hopefully be refreshed, and able to tackle
    your projects anew !

    Sorry you're under the weather. But sometimes working out makes me feel better. Probably all the endorphins.

    Hope you feel better soon.
