Still Getting Down w/the Sickness

I had decided to take a break from posting until I got better...which I had hoped would be sooner than today. Not so. I went to doc yesterday and have a full blown sinus infection. Double worse for someone with asthma. Yuck. I HATE BEING SICK!! Did I mention that?

I went into work today and hacked up a lung so decided to come home at 3:30pm which was a good move. I don't think my office mates wanted to hear me coughing up lung biscuits all day (I know, gross - imagine being me! :)).

I lifted shoulders on Sunday and although I got a great workout (thank you Amber for your moral support!) and was even sore the next day but I got winded after a set of shoulder presses. I wanted to workout last night but felt terrible and I am still debating whether or not I can get a pump in tonight. I just don't know if it is a good idea. This is how I look at it: when I am lifting I am tearing my muscle fibers apart and my calorie and food intake is going toward repairing those muscles. BUT my body wants to use that energy to get me to feel better - and I know that the long term benefit of feeling better is that I can get better workouts. I was hoping to say adios to the muffin top before the end of the year but I just don't think it is possible.

What can I do with my time while I am "off"? MAKE MY WORKOUT PLAN FOR THE NEXT 43 WEEKS!! My energy and efforts will go toward making a clear plan for my workouts and nutrition for the next 43 weeks. Watch out! And yes, I will post my plan - I PROMISE!

Take your Vitamin C, get enough rest and take care of you! I wasn't doing any of those things and BAM! sickness.

Have a great week everyone!

Awwww...I figured you would have kicked the crud by now. Get better!

Good, I was hoping you would post your plan.

I want to get rid of a few pounds contributing to my muffin top as well, before Christmas. I cannot stand it any longer. I want MUSCLE, but this chub is getting me down.

I saw you mentioned PN to Cynthia on her site. Are you going to do it? I have been wanting to buy it but wasnt for sure. What do you think?

Just popped some Vit c!!!

Hang in there, sista. See yourself as sick and you will stay sick. See yourself as healthy, and you will change instantly!

Love you!
