Back To Work

I have been sick this week and only just went back to work today. It was an exhausting day just doing routine stuff.

I ate more than I normally do (mainly protein with fruit and vegetables) because I hadn't eaten for a day and a half. I actually managed to eat all of the Weight Watchers points I am supposed to eat - 32 (I usually stick to the 20-22 points range).

Needless to say I did not exercise - at least at my normal level - but I did walk over a mile:

1. 0.7 miles to the bus stop this morning
2. 0.2 miles in to work this morning
3. 0.2 miles to the bus stop from work this evening
4. 0.2 miles home from a different bus stop this evening

At least that is something considering how I am feeling such a loss of stamina.

My plan is to finish out the work week while sticking to my diet plan. I won't exercise Thursday or Friday, but I will be getting back out there on Saturday to resume my normal schedule. I just don't want to set myself back because I couldn't take the time to rest to get my normal strength level back.

I'm glad you are starting to feel better. At least you got some walking in. I hope that you are back to normal by the weekend!

You def need to let your body recoup its strength before you hit the gym/trail hard. Mild walking is a great alternative. you're doing great!

Sorry to hear you were so under the weather. It's definitely a good idea to take things slower than you normally would, but I like that you're still walking a mile even at low point.

Sometimes it's wonderful to think of just how far we've come. Feel better!
