Working out while sick and Catching Fire

on March 28, 2012

Hello hello!   The last few weeks have really just been a blur to me.  I don’t know if I am coming or going.  🙂  This could be a good thing right?  I love feeling busy and it sure does make the day go by fast.  I barely have enough time to blog, much less check some of my favorites.  How do you handle a busy life??

 

Yesterday’s Breakfast:

 

Rudi’s Gluten-free toast, chocolate nut butter, 1/2 banana, and some chia seeds.

 

 

Today’s Breakfast:

 

Food for life Brown Rice Gluten-free toast, chocolate nut butter, 1/2 banana, and some chia seeds.  I am a creature of habit.  🙂

 

 

I had an appointment yesterday afternoon and didn’t really get a good lunch in, so I grabbed a snack before I headed in.

 

Today’s lunch:

It’s weird, since I have been sick, my appetite has been all over the place.  There are days I think that I can eat a cow, and then there are days that I just don’t want anything.  Today was that kind of day……for lunch I had a cup of granola.

 

 

Working out and being sick:

I have managed to get my workouts in this week, but haven’t felt up to parr doing them.  So it got me thinking, which is hard when you have so much snot in your head……When is it ok to do a workout while your sick…………..and when is it not?

  • First I think it’s important to assess how ill you are.  Check your temperature and make sure that whatever you have is not in your chest.  For example, the flu, bronchitis, etc.
  • If you simply have a sinus infection, check how you feel and then try for a light to medium intensity workout.  Always check yourself during the workout to make sure you are feeling ok.
  • Stomach, body aches, fever.  If you have any of these issues, bed rest is what you need the most.
  • When you are sick, your immune system is compromised, rest is the best thing for this.  Taking a break from exercising is ok.

 

 

Workout:

Jillian Michael’s: Shed and Shred 40 minutes

 

 

Sleep:

Last night I went to bed right at 8 and didn’t get up this morning until 7!!  I was so tired last night that I couldn’t keep my eyes open.  I don’t know about you, but I love getting that kind of sleep.  🙂

 

 

Reading:

I am just about done with the second book, Catching Fire,  in the Hunger Games series!!  I love this series!!  I can’t wait to start the last book.
