Now I have yet another reason for not going to the gym - it causes illness! Thank you for adding to my list of excuses!

Blogger Sorta Southern Single Mom said...

Glad you are feeling better! I've been going faithfully 2-3 times a week all school-year and running a 5K. That's come to a screeching halt now that the kids are home for the summer...I intend to 30-day shred at home, but that hasn't happened yet... and my mom called me fat last week! Oh the joy! :)

Blogger Rebecca said...

That is hysterical...you probably thought they gym was actually trying to kill you! Either way, I hope you're feeling better now.

I got off the treadmill the other day (I typically stick with the elliptical) and I was totally dizzy...almost fell over...like when you get off a boat after a while. It was embarrassing! I almost ran into someone walking in the opposite direction...damn treadmill!

Feeling that out of shape does suck so I'm glad you had a fever too! I need someone to kick my ass into gear to workout.... SO unmotivated!

You had me reconsidering a gym membership when my kids are both in school because I am no where near in shape!

It's good to know you're not that out of shape. Not that being sick is any better. Good luck at the gym!

girrrl I feel ya! I teach Zumba and with camp and the Holiday, I took 2 weeks off and ate like a P-I-G Hog! When I went back to the gym yesterday, I could barely move! Keep at it!!

Working out when you're sick is the worst! At least you can blame your poor performance on the fever :) Hope today goes better for you.

Sorry you were sick, but like you, I thought it was better to be sick than that out of shape! LOL

For me though, it would be that I'm that out of shape!

Not that I would EVER laugh at you for being sick, but LOLOLOLOL!!!

Oh, glad you're feeling well enough to work out again! Good luck! I just started working out last week for the first time in, like... EVER, and I swear to god, I really, truly thought I might die afterward!

That's crazy.... I bet you were relieved. Now I would have just faked sickness to be able to never return to the gym again. That is why Hans hates me....

Probably one of the only times you've been releived to be sick, huh? Get well soon and kick some bootay at your gym!!! :)

Well crap...sucks about the fever! Though when I first started working out I felt super dizzy and realized it was Vertigo...getting old sucks!

Good luck at the Gym!!!

GOOD LUCK!! I've been off the gym for the past 2 weeks due to a stupid cold that has killed any chance of a good night's sleep. I need to get back.

As I was reading your post its, I was thinking, I wonder if she was just sick. So while I'm not happy you were, I'm also relieved for you that you were.
I need to go work out too. Ugh!

July 6, 2010 at 12:10 PM  
Blogger Kristy said...

Yes, I was so sore from doing seriously wimpy Wii stuff the other day. I thought, "I either need to never do that again or do it a lot more. A lot."

July 6, 2010 at 12:18 PM  
Blogger The Random Blogette said...

Oh no! So glad that you are feeling better though! I need to hop back on the workout train myself. My last 15 lbs aren't going to just come off by themselves!

July 6, 2010 at 12:43 PM  
Blogger Mellodee said...

You probably picked up some flu-thing at the gym....all those different germs lurking on the equipment!! Yep, that'd be enough for me to swear off gyms forever. I'd rather be fat than sick! ;)

Blogger Jennifer said...

I put my kids to bed at 8:00 last night and David made out like I was cruel for putting them to bed before dark. You get to put yours to bed at 7:30????

And I wrote about exercise today too. And how I almost got attacked by wolves. In my sleep.

July 6, 2010 at 1:14 PM  
Blogger Andrea said...

Ah the gym.... I have a love-hate relationship with exercise, but I think the hate part stems from the fact that I dont know how to exercise half way. I have to run 3 miles or I feel like a failure. So I just don't exercise ;)

July 6, 2010 at 1:21 PM

Oh you poor thing! I am glad you are feeling well enough to go to the gym.

Blogger JoJo said...

so impressed with your motivation to work out! I'm lucky if I manage to walk up the stairs without having to catch my breath. If you have fever though that's probably your bodies way of telling you that you need to rest. Don't overwork yourself girl!

Blogger Sonora said...

Oh geez, isn't that just like a mom to not realize WE are sick. I think we get used to a certain level of feeling run down. I'm glad you aren't that out of shape (go you, I haven't been to the gym in closer to 10 years) but I'm sorry you were sick. I hope this time goes better than last!

It is pretty bad when you re happy to fins out you are sick. I may or may not have experienced a similar thing after I tried to return to pilates.

Yeah - I don't think the working out would ever cause that kind of fever!

For a second there I thought you were going to say that you were pregnant! That's kind of how I found out I was pg with my third: I could barely run three miles, when I'd just finished a marathon a month before. It was so weird! But then I found out why I was soooo tired...

Love your blog! Love the idea of "things I can't say."

My husband and I just started a blog because our marriage has been going through some rough spots and it just feels so good to get our thoughts out there.

Thanks for having blogs like this so that in entices others to not keep everything inside.
