Biggest Loser: Week 5

I have been sick with a cold for about a week now.  It was a light cold last week so I kept working out and going about my business.  I even came in early on Monday to work out.  After last week's little set back I was ready to bring it on!

Except the cold really hit me on Monday!  I couldn't breathe, my nose was too stuffy, I was sneezing, coughing and basically dieying!

I took a half day on Tuesday and a full day off on Wednesday.  I finally felt better on Thursday and came in.  It was time for the weigh in (since I missed Wednesday).  I was scared.  I didn't work out hard, I ate too much and I was ready for the consequences... Well, guess what?!  I lost ONE pound!  How does this happen?  I don't know.  I even had pizza yesterday (because I thought all effort had been lost). 

I thought, maybe it's the pound of muscle that I gained last week, but who cares?!  I am taking my pound and running with it!

Lesson Learned:  Sometimes, when your body is sick, it needs a break!  I should have taken a break when my body had the light cold... but I didn't.  I kept working out and going on with business as usual until I couldn't anymore.  Sometimes you just need a break.  I can't wait until I am back 100% to really bring it on!
