Today was supposed to be my weekly weigh-in. I did jump on Wii-Fit and take my measurement, gasp that I went up .8kgs since my last measurement 3 days ago, and promptly climb back into bed. I know up up since last Saturday, but I don't think I'm up the full .8kgs because I had dropped weight throughout the week. I plan to re-weigh and post tomorrow.
For now, I want to discuss being sick and the need to go to the gym. I have not been to the gym in almost 2 weeks now. I am very sad about this, but obviously not sad enough to get my butt there. I had planned to go tomorrow and start up my routine again (I really want to do my new 3 day gym program), but I am officially sick with a sinus cold of some sort and a splitting headache. I've dragged myself into work for a 12 hour shift as I will do again tomorrow because it really isn't an option, but the gym just doesn't seem like an option.
I was reading an old post by Carrie at http://shrinkingcarrie.com/about/ about this very same thing. What do you do when you're sick and the gym is on your schedule. Chris would just suck it up and go, tell me he felt better after having gone, and then possibly taken a day off work to recover (or at least had the weekend to do so). I, on the other hand, work 6 out of 7 days a week and use my 7th day to do all the running around that needs to be done. I slept 12 hours last night in hopes of recovery and yet I still feel like crap.
What to do? I want to go to the gym, but the thought of all that hard work turns my stomach (although it may be the diet of tea and toast I've been living off of from not feeling well). I also don't want to overwork myself and then have to book a supply teacher to fill in for me the week before I write report cards. Any suggestions?
