Bad, bad kitteh....
Today I'm finally at a point where the cough is [mostly] gone, and simple tasks like loading the groceries in the car don't leave me gasping for air. It has been a surprisingly long road to get this far.
Starting Monday morning I'm going to dip my toe back in the pool of exercise. I've been researching illness recovery, and apparently it is best to start increasing the frequency of my work outs, and then, once I'm back up to a good frequency, I can increase the duration. Finally, after I'm back to a good pattern with frequency and duration, I'll increase the intensity of the work outs.
Sounds easy enough, right? It is probably much easier in theory than in practice, but I've got to start somewhere. Summer is right around the corner, like it or not. Can I just say how much I'd love to be able to wear cute sun dresses and a bathing suit with no shame?? Right now, there would be shame. Lots of it. It's time to get back to the blood, sweat and tears. After this weekend, of course.
Did I mention that tomorrow we are heading to Muffin Top's house for the weekend!?!?! I kinda can't believe it! It's been over 2 months since I've seen that bitch, and I miss her lots! So here's to a weekend of fun and friends! Come Monday though, it's on. Back to working out. Back to eating to fuel my body. I will recover, and I will be stronger when I do!!!
