It’s amazing what a few days of rest can do! I’m feeling so much better. I started to really feel like crap when I went to bed last Sunday night and was running a fever. By the time I woke up Thursday morning, I was almost back to normal. I stayed in bed all day Monday. Tuesday I was feeling better but still had a low grade fever. I was miserable tired at work on Wednesday. Then like a switch was flipped I felt a million times better on Thursday.
So, Mission accomplished in 4 days. Oh yeah, I like that. I’m still trying to clean out some phlegm (mmm, yum.) but other than that I’m good to go. Friday, I went back into the gym to do some easy cardio and felt pretty good. My lungs were burning a bit but hey, I just had a cold. I went in late Saturday morning and did my lifting routine. I dropped my weight on all my lifts by about 10% from where I left off before I got sick. So glad I did because it was tough. I’m back in the gym today to lift so I’m hoping I’ll feel 100%. Those squats are getting tough. Think I need to do a blog post on the program I’m doing. (note to self.)
Having the ability to get over a cold so quickly makes all of my hard work worth it. If I was still over 200lbs, unhealthy, sitting on the couch instead of working out, I would still be sick, feeling like crap for 2 weeks. I realize there are so many benefits to taking care of my body. It feels great to recognize that. *smiles*
