I too, have been pondering about what to post as my first blog - and then it hit me, like lightening.... *POOWWW* sorry, no sound effects or big show :) I am going to talk a minute about exercising and doing what you need to do to get "it" done while you are sick and tired. I have had bronchitis and some type head cold for a little over a week now, but this isn't any excuse for me to not exercise or eat right. Let's talk about exercising: While with bronchitis, it's not entirely logical to drag yourself through the frigid weather to the gym and exert yourself on the treadmill for an hour infecting everyone within a 5 foot radius; you can stay home and still get in a decent workout that is not too exhausting. The work out that I have been doing? Yoga. Light and modified until my lung capacity is back in full working order, but nonetheless, yoga. It is not just used for meditation - as people may believe :) It is a full body workout and very effective when it comes to weight loss.
