Default This cold is killing me!

I've had a really bad sinus infection and cold for over a week now and I feel really guilty about not being able to exercise during this time. I'm losing weight only because I'm losing muscle and am dehydrated, despite drinking gallons of water. I feel too crappy. I just *know* doing a heavy-duty workout will knock me on my butt. Ugh! I understand that this is just a temporary setback but I am really unhappy that my momentum has been interrupted by the really nasty cold that has been going around.
Binge free since October 18, 2014.

Oy, I know the feeling! Hate that...

The only choice you have is to take care of yourself as well as you can for the moment, and not think too much about the next day. One day at a time, as they say. And not use your illness as an excuse to binge eat or whatever, although comforting one's self when sick is necessary in some form.

I know for me, if I push myself when I'm sick, it totally sets me back and just prolongs things. So, I don't know what to say about that since everyone's tolerance is different. In my case, I'm better off stopping completely until the storm has passed, but then it's hard to remotivate. Never an easy thing to decide.
