Take it easy at the gym 😉
July 6, 2010 at 7:07 am
Now I have yet another reason for not going to the gym – it causes illness! Thank you for adding to my list of excuses!

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! 🙂
July 6, 2010 at 7:10 am
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!
July 6, 2010 at 7:16 am
You had me laughing out loud with this post!!! Good luck at the gym today!!
July 6, 2010 at 7:21 am
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!
July 6, 2010 at 7:30 am
haha good for you going to the gym! i always seem to have the best of intentions!no fun with a fever though!!
July 6, 2010 at 7:31 am
Good luck girl…..burn some calories for me while your there :O)
July 6, 2010 at 7:33 am
Hehehe. I start Zumba next week. Oh girl, I feel ya.
July 6, 2010 at 7:38 am
Ok that last post it should not be read with coffee in thy mouth.

Glad it wasn't the gym but sorry you got ill. Hope your feeling better now 🙂 Have a great week.
July 6, 2010 at 7:57 am
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!
July 6, 2010 at 8:00 am
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!!
July 6, 2010 at 8:07 am
Hope you are feeling better!!!
July 6, 2010 at 8:17 am
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.

We will be on the watch for you today. Don't hurt yourself at the gym.
July 6, 2010 at 8:20 am
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!
July 6, 2010 at 8:50 am
Not that I would EVER laugh at you for being sick, but LOLOLOLOL!!!
July 6, 2010 at 9:18 am
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 One Mom says
July 6, 2010 at 9:19 am
I'll BBM you in an hour or two and see if you're still kicking…
July 6, 2010 at 9:27 am
Ugh not a good weekend to get sick on hun. Glad you are feeling better though and I will watch for your tweets lol
July 6, 2010 at 9:49 am
omg hope you are feeling better now!!
July 6, 2010 at 9:58 am
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….
July 6, 2010 at 10:00 am
Probably one of the only times you've been releived to be sick, huh? Get well soon and kick some bootay at your gym!!! 🙂
July 6, 2010 at 10:17 am
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!!!

Be safe! The gym can be detrimental to your health! 😉
Cheryl D. says
Start slow and don't overdo it! Take care and have fun!
July 6, 2010 at 10:25 am
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.

OH MY GOODNESS!!! Hope it all goes well today=0)

July 6, 2010 at 10:33 am
Does it sound bad if I say, "I'm glad it was a fever"?
July 6, 2010 at 10:38 am
Too funny! Not the getting sick part though 🙁
July 6, 2010 at 10:48 am
Be careful!!! 🙂I'm sorry about your fever and I hope you feel better and that your workout today is awesome.
July 6, 2010 at 11:05 am
Sorry you were sick, though I can see why you were happy that was the reason. Hope today went better for you!
July 6, 2010 at 11:10 am
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 11:18 am
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."
The Random Blogette says
July 6, 2010 at 11:43 am
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 11:50 am
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! 😉
July 6, 2010 at 12:14 pm
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 12:21 pm
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 12:24 pm
Oh you poor thing! I am glad you are feeling well enough to go to the gym.
July 6, 2010 at 12:31 pm
LOL well good thing you weren't as out of shape as you thought, glad you're feelin better!
Nancy C says
July 6, 2010 at 12:45 pm
Ick! What a relief, though. Go get, 'em.
July 6, 2010 at 12:53 pm
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!
July 6, 2010 at 1:53 pm
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!
Aging Mommy says
July 6, 2010 at 2:00 pm
Oh my! Well I guess it was good news it was a fever and not just being out of shape 🙂 I hope things go better today!
July 6, 2010 at 2:06 pm
you may still be out of shape, but at least, your fever broke…
July 6, 2010 at 2:08 pm
Is it safe to say, glad you were just sick and not out of shape? Glad to hear that you're trying again today. Keep up the good work!!

This time we will be sure to send help! lol
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.

July 6, 2010 at 3:14 pm
Good luck!! Working out sucks a whole lot, but it is so worth it when you start seeing and feeling the positive changes =)
July 6, 2010 at 3:26 pm
Yeah – I don't think the working out would ever cause that kind of fever!
July 6, 2010 at 3:43 pm
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…
July 6, 2010 at 4:14 pm
Oh man! So sorry you were sick. Since you are going back, I hope that means you are well!
Mommy Lisa says
July 6, 2010 at 4:18 pm
Oh my sweet baby Jesus that was funny that post it series right there.
P.S. I was sure you were going to say you were knocked up too!
July 6, 2010 at 4:21 pm
Holy cow chica! That's one heck of a fever.
Hope you're feeling better–and go you for going back to the gym!
Kristin @ Ellie-Town says
July 6, 2010 at 5:02 pm
Thank God for being sick!
I would have thought the exact same thing.
Hope you are feeling better!
July 6, 2010 at 5:23 pm
Haha! I love how you ended with that same post it. Too funny! I remember the first time I got on the elyptical last year. It could have won a funniest home video prize! I was peddling backwards, and lasted for all of two minutes. So sad! Keep it up! 🙂
The Blue Zoo says
July 6, 2010 at 5:47 pm
Hope it goes better this time! LOL
July 6, 2010 at 5:49 pm
Ugh, I hope you feel better and that your next workout is a success!

July 6, 2010 at 6:34 pm
Just showing up at the gym is half the battle. Stay motivated chickie!
July 6, 2010 at 7:46 pm
Hopefully you suffered through it better today!
July 6, 2010 at 8:16 pm
Just remember…what doesn't kill us makes us stronger.
I'll keep trying to remember that too!
Yellow House Knits says
July 6, 2010 at 8:38 pm
Ugh! So sorry you're sick! Rest up and when you hit the gym again, you'll be so impressed with how much you've improved!
July 6, 2010 at 9:22 pm
WOW hope you feel better! Really enjoyed your Post Its! It sure is a fun and different way to post! 🙂
July 6, 2010 at 9:35 pm
Hope you're feeling better!
That's some funny stuff, reposting the same note! LOL!!
July 6, 2010 at 9:44 pm
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.

Thanks for stopping by… I'm visiting from PINT (a little late). :p Sorry to hear you were sick, love the SEND HELP!!!!!!! post-it at the end. 😀
July 7, 2010 at 9:38 am
ok, how did it go? and please tell me i didn't give you strep. Just a cold – hoping!!!

July 7, 2010 at 2:27 pm
I am just waiting for Big Brother to start. I figure all that panting over hot boys counts as exercise.
July 8, 2010 at 1:32 am
Oh no!! Isn't it sad that as women, you'd be happier that you were sick instead of just out of shape? (because, I would've felt the SAME WAY! : ) GOOD LUCK heading back to the gym!
Michelle @ Flying Giggles says
July 8, 2010 at 9:09 am
At least you can blame it on the fever. Something is going around here. My sister in law came down with a fever the other night…hope you are feeling better.
