FINALLY I am feeling some improvement! I have been off the radar for a whole week now and I am starting to feel the meds kicking in… and I’m coming back to life! haha
I went out dancing last night because after the week I had, I knew I needed it. And while I was expecting to feel sicker today, I actually feel better 🙂
I had an AMAZING brunch to start off my Saturday:
Today I relaxed and worked on some homework and assignments…I’m FINALLY at the home stretch of school and I’m also going home next weekend to see my family 🙂
I was planning on going to the gym today but I realize I shouldn’t jump the gun here and I decided to give myself one more “day off”…I’ll probably do abs and arm exercises in my dorm later tonight.
What I realized about working out from being sick:
- Working out should be a want to ….not a HAVE TO
- My body hasn’t changed a bit from skipping the gym because I eat moderately and intuitively
- I work out for health. I do miss the gym because it just makes me feel good
- I will no longer kick myself for not going 5 or 6 days a week ….if i FEEL like it I will…..but doing 4-5 times or even (dare I say) 3 times a week….will benifit me mentally and physically all the same!
SO THERE YOU HAVE IT..being sick actually taught me a valuable lesson about myself 🙂
Here’s my advice to you ( and honestly, to myself) about working out: It’s not a necessity. It makes you feel good, fresh, and alive. Don’t push yourself. Feel good , be happy… and THAT makes you healthy.
