So even though I have not been feeling good, I have still gotten my workouts in. I wish I could say that it was because I am that dedicated to my workouts that I have to get them in or I feel bad. To a point that is true, but when I don’t feel good that is usually the last thing I want to do. But for some reason when I am getting a cold and feel like crap, if I go and do something to start sweating it makes me feel better and I feel like my cold clears up faster. I am not sure why this is or if it’s just in my head but I swear I can sweat it out. Of course I feel like crap and don’t want to workout but I know I will feel better faster in the long run.
Today I was feeling a bit better than yesterday. I didn’t have the sore throat like I did yesterday but today my nose is running more. So I decided to get my run in. I had no motivation to do this and I did not get my happy ass on the treadmill until 2 this afternoon but I had a good run. I felt good and I ran for 3 miles. I also decided to start to add in some strength training to my workouts. So today after my run I hopped on my total gym.
I did arms and abs today. This is always fun to lift weight when you have an added 25 pounds sitting on your back or stomach. Baby J thought this was a fun ride. So I had a great workout today. Tonight I am feeling much better. I really believe you can sweat out a cold. My appetite is still not the greatest but I am sure that is not going to hurt my extra pounds I am trying to lose again.
