Weight and Measurements update

This week started out with a fear of weight gain as last week was full of eating on the mini break and no exercise. A great aunt made some brioche and I’m sure I ate over 5 of them on Tuesday.

Jumped onto the scale to find that my weight had remained stagnant. A lovely outline of 95Kg was shown on the screen. Yay no additional weight gain. Measurements are telling a different story though. I have gained 5mm to 1cm on my arms, thighs, chest and hips.

This week looks like yet another week of taking it easy as Monday night while having dinner with friends I started to feel slightly dizzy and had a funny tickle in the back of my throat. Woke up Tuesday morning with a sore throat feeling like hell. As the day progressed my nose started to run and I now officially have a cold. I tried to workout yesterday, I put on my slacks and my workout shirt and as soon as I moved I felt dizzy. I sat yesterday out and today I slept for most of the day. Doubt there will be much working out this week.

Do you still manage to exercise while you’re sick?


  1. I know people insist you should workout no matter what, but I think when you are under the weather, you should let your body rest and use all available energy to heal.

  2. I'm glad that you agreed that one should rest when sick. I felt like death warmed up and there was no way that I would have lasted on the treadmill or through any other workout for that matter.
