The flu got me :( For now...

Friday, February 08, 2013

UGH - 4 days out of the gym.

The 2013 Flu Season is proving to get even those that got the flu shot like me!

I've learned:

1 - no matter how much you try, if you are going to get sick - just let it happen. No sense in fighting what needs to take it's course.

2 - Make a mental note of how it will "take you back" on your plan - if you are on one. It's put be back at least 4 days thus far - watch out - next week this girl will be on a roll!

3 - If you are determined - falling back doesn't mean falling off - it just means a re-shifting of plans and maybe, if possible, making up for lost time in small increments.

I need to go after this intelligently - not just throwing out the doors through the windows!

    I have a cold that is finally ending, hopefully. I wound up with a sinus and ear infection. It took me out of the gym and off the dance floor for 4 days. Made me gain some weight back, too. But I have been back at it since Monday, I hope you get better soon!

    There is a second strain of flu hitting now and it does not care if you got a flu shot or already had the flu this season

    A friends daughter has it now and she is more miserable now than with her first round in Jan. This time she also ended up in the ER with it
