Flu season is here. If you haven’t had it yet, I certainly hope that you don’t get it. I’ve been trying to beat this thing for 3 days now and I can tell you that I am SO READY to see it go. As much as I LOVE tea, I’m tired of it! And I’m hoping that all the cough drops haven’t put me “over” my calorie range for the day.
For me, eating healthy and working out each day help keeps my immune system in check. But, I will admit that I’ve been traveling a bit lately and have not done my best at staying on track. I know though that eating clean and staying away from processed foods will make a difference and so I’ve been trying to eat as healthy as I can.
As far as my workouts go this week, I’ve done what I could when I felt up to it. I’m not going to allow my illness to come between me and my routine though. I’ve had to modify my workouts and even missed a day because I felt that it was important to listen to my body. I’ve come to learn that it’s okay to take a day of rest when sick but I won’t use it as an excuse for not working out.
If you’re well enough to exercise, the key is to keep some momentum going without overdoing it. If you do fall off the wagon, don’t give up once you’re feeling better. Just get back up and get back on track.
