Making up for Down Time

I am finally starting to get over my cold. I didn't end up going to the gym as originally scheduled last night because the cold really knocked me down. I didn't leave the couch all night and it actually seemed to help. I woke up feeling half normal so I decided that I would go to the gym tonight. I only walked on the treadmill for 15 minutes but it is 15 more minutes than I walked last night.

I haven't been doing a good job at sticking to my meal plan this week, either. After the gym, I got a salad from McDonalds because I was too tired to make dinner. I am forgiving myself because I am still sick and I know that I am doing my best with the time and energy that I have. Another thing that I have realized is that this week isn't quite over yet! I still have time to re-evaluate my workout and dinner plan for the rest of the week.

Workout Plan

Thursday: Gym
Friday: Gym
Saturday: Rest
Sunday: Rest

Dinner Plan

Thursday: Pasta and Salad
Friday: Date Night
Saturday: Baked Potato Soup
Sunday: Calzones and Salad

If I stick to my workout plan, this will be my third week of going to the gym three times a week. I am not going to let this cold stand in my way to achieving that! Even if it means going to the gym on a Friday night before a date with my husband. I am feeling better and it's time to make up for my down time while being sick.
