Default The Flu! :(

Why does it always happen like this?? I get in the groove of working out daily, I'm seeing major scale results and even more major measurement results - and BAM! - I'm hit with the worst flu I've had in YEARS. I can't climb the stairs without feeling shakey, let alone go work out.

I'm so worried I will have trouble getting back on plan and I'm so worried that I will lose the good results I worked so hard for!

Just had to vent...

If you're feeling that out of the loop, might I suggest looking into "Sit and be fit"? It's a program designed for the elderly/unable to move very well, and it sounds pretty easy, but it's actually a pretty slow paced workout and gets your heart rate up without tons of moving. Just for those days where you feel guilty for not doing anything, you know? Heck, I did it- I'm doing more of her work outs, too, along with my harder Tubro Jam and Ab Bootcamp ones.

So sorry to hear that you have the flu! Don't worry... when you get to feeling better in a few days, you will be looking forward to getting back to your program. You're just feeling ill and having self doubt. You will get through this! Take care.

This always happens to me too! I get sick, or something stops me from working out; I feel so miserable and like I've not done enough.

Just make sure you commit to staying on track as soon as you feel well enough! You've made a promise to yourself to be healthier so stick with it!

I hope you feel better soon
