Day 52 - Sick but Recovering

  • Feb 27th, 2019 at 10:06AM

Hi Team,

Thanks for all the positive comments, and you're right Valerie -- it is better to accept my "grazing" and plan for it be eating a small bit of something healthy rather than obsessing, denying, and eating junk food or candy.

Well, it turns out I was much sicker than I realized yesterday when posting. I was essentially in bed all day, stomach completely cramping up. I struggled, but managed to get down my food, so my diet was actually pretty good, but I was weak and dizzy, and kept getting hit with a headache, so I had to skip my exercise. I think I had food poisoning from my indulgence day....

Way to keep me motivated, body.

Update 2: I was able to get all the exercise done today, albeit at a lower intensity. Back to the program! There's nothing like an enforced rest to make you stop want to choosing to rest.

Your focus right now is on rest and recovery. Don't push yourself too hard or rush back to the exercises. And when you do return, keep things slow. The exercises have really ramped up, so you don't have to do all reps and sets when you come back. You will be at full strength soon enough.

          Yep, being ill has a way of making you appreciate good health even more! I hope you are fully recovered by now, take it slow on the exercises until you get back to 100%.

              It's not like you to go a full week without blogging. Is everything ok?
