Default should I ease back in?

I just realized that I have not been to the gym in 3 weeks.
Ok, it's not like I've been inactive, I spent my time in Vancouver walking and doing the hike from ****, which I really enjoyed actually - but that's beside the point.

Being sick for 2 weeks after that and still having a cough, not much of one, I'm not coughing up a lung or anything, just a tickle in the throat. Nose is still a little runny but again, nothing major.

My question, do I need to ease back in to the gym? Im thinking the 30 minute elliptical or stairmaster or high incline treadmill might not be as 'easy' as it was when I stopped going.

No wonder i've put on weight . . . time to get my lazy butt back to my routine.

Thanks for any input
Live real, live hope.

I'd go with a plan and take it from there. Intensify, take it easy...whichever feels right at the time. I think you'll know.

When I've taken time off from exercising I do find that I need to take it a bit slower than I did before the break. The reason is if I go full out (like before) then the next day I'm worthless. It's much easier on your body to start out slower and then move back to your usual intensity.

Beating the weight off, 5 lbs at a time!

I've read that it only takes 2 weeks of inactivity to lose muscle that had recently been gained. So easing in might be good.
