Under the Weather

I've been fighting a cold for the last 3 days and it's really effecting my ability to workout. Nutrition has still been really good but I don't want to do much more than lie on the couch or soak in a hot bath. I did have a pretty good workout the one day and I actually felt better but I crashed into sickness again pretty hard a couple of hours post workout. I'll take that as a sign that I need to just rest and let this crap run it's course.

The weird thing is I haven't been sick in years. Now that I'm trying to get "healthier" I get sick? I wonder if their is a connection. Body is too stressed maybe and my immune system couldn't deal with this bug? I don't know. Right now it's just a runny nose, a cough and an achy tired feeling.

I'm hoping to feel a lot better by the weekend so that I can get back into my routine. Right now I'm bracing for a possible gain in weight this week. Yikes, thats kind of scary.


  1. Hang in there, dude. Drink lots of fluids and don't push yourself too hard until you feel better. You'll be a calorie burning machine again soon!

  2. it out, force the liquids and eat decently. But you might have a gain. No worries...this is a marathon, not a sprint.

  3. Home you feel better soon. Get your rest in.
