I’ve now been sick for over a month.
First my head and chest flu which I might add was a whopper.
Now, stomach flu. Throwing up, fever, sweats…yep…the works. I don’t do things half way.
I wasn’t even completely over the first one. I was still coughing and could hear it rattling in my chest.
Obviously, my immune system was still weakened and this new flu found me and grabbed on.
(I realize I’m kinda cute…but this is ridiculous)
I’m finally able to sit up for a little while (before the need to hurl takes over and I have to lay back down again).
But I’m at least up for a little bit.
Unfortunately I feel like all my hard work over the past 6 months has been for nothing.
I haven’t hiked in over a month. Haven’t been walking.
Have only been to Pilates a couple of times the whole month.
This completely stinks.
I want to move, get out there and get healthy but I really feel like when (hopefully not if) I get better I’ll be basically starting over again.
I hope I’m wrong and my body will remember all the work I’ve put in and it will respond.
Perhaps what I need to do is focus on what I have accomplished and if I’ve taken a step back, that’s ok, as long as I take the next step forward.
