So I was thinking

I was reading someones blog and she said her co-workers were getting sick but she thinks she's fending it off. She said that one thing she hates is when something thinks they're getting sick/are sick and they use that as an excuse to not workout/eat right.

You know, I do agree with her. There are people out there that will sneeze and will use that as an excuse to eat poorly, to not workout, to lounge around. I don't like petty excuses.


I've been there. I am here. This is not petty.

When your head hurts so badly that a narcotic won't take it away, you really don't care about working out. You really don't care if you eat broccoli or ice cream because all you want to do is die. When you can feel the blood pumping through the veins in your head and you think about working out and how the blood will be flowing that much faster, it makes you want to vomit so I am pretty sure you don't need to be working out. When you have to spend hours laying down with the lights turned out, your last thought is eating right or getting up to workout. When you are dealing with this for a week, you don't want to do anything except make this damn thing go away. When you have to make 2 trips to the doctor and 2 more trips to the chiropractor, you couldn't care less about doing what you're supposed to do. Call it a prime opportunity to cheat. Maybe I am not as hard core as others. But when I am sick, when I am truly sick, I don't want to workout. I did do my best to eat clean. But I wasn't perfect.

Oh wait, you want more. It gets better. When you're in a Jetta, about 2 hours from home, and you're in a rush to get to the daycare before it closes to get your daughter, and you suddenly vomit into a grocery bad because there is no time to pull over, I don't think you want to workout...or eat anything. When you spend the night on the couch curled up and you take one last visit to the porcelain throne before you hit the sack, I don't think there IS time to workout. Oh, and I am using today as an excuse too. I am dehydrated. I feel weak and my head hurts. At this point in my life, I would rather be fat then workout.

So yeah, I am and have been THAT sick that I don't want to workout. The powerade I am drinking and the soup I am eating doesn't fall into the meal plan. The laying on the couch doesn't count as working out. But when you feel this bad, you just don't care...

Ohhhh girl. I feel you. My exhaustion as of late was not exactly conducive to clean eating. I couldn't even muster the thought of opening a package of anything, much less preparing or eating it. Crackers were good. Open box. Insert hand.
And workouts? I was taking 4 hour naps a day just so that I could manage to get thru the 40 minute drive to & from my son's school. Like I had energy to work out.

Hope you feel better soon. :(

Oh honey, I'm SOOO very sorry you are feeling so awful. Wish there was something I could do to take the pain away. Just me having a headache makes me not want to do anything, I can't imagine having a migraine and going through what you are going through. Yeah, I think you should do ALOT more relaxing and trying to rest than workout or even worry about eating clean right now. There has to be something to relieve your pain. Have you tried any herbal remedies? My Mom suffers from Migraines too and is an herbal queen. I'll ask her what she uses. Her migraines come on when she eats certain foods or smells certain vapors or stays on the computer too long. I'll be hoping and praying that you get some relief soon.
