Am I too sick to workout?

So in the past I wouldn’t really entertain the idea of being too sick to workout… Well cause since I started my journey I really haven’t been… Until now 🙁 I’m down with an upper respiratory viral infection. Praise God it’s not the flu! But I am definitely in no place to workout.
So to answer your question. Am I too sick to workout:
If you are having trouble breathing, are coughing up your insides, your head pounds with every movement… Then yes- you ARE too sick to workout. And guess what?! THAT’S OK!! While you’re down for the count allow your body to heal! When you’re a chronic exercise freak or you just started to get your groove I’m sure you experienced that constant soreness. Use this time to completely heal- but there is something you CAN do that will make this time even more beneficial to your come back after the cold- STRETCH!
So my advice to you when your sick- rest & stretch. If you can manage some low impact yoga to keep your sanity-then by all means please do so. But don’t push through to a coughing fit or induce a migraine. It’s always key to listen to your body- not when it’s saying “I want chocolate cake!” But when it’s truly showing you that it needs some good ol’ R&R.

Eat Clean & Get Lean strikes again!

Why do I do this every year on the month of thanksgiving?
Well, I do it for 2 reasons:
2- me
1: you need the accountability, you need to keep at it or get started, you need someone to pull you through when every where you turn there is a pumpkin pie with a dallop of whipped cream screaming “eat me!! I’m low fat!!”
2: ok I need your help for all the above listed reasons.
Really, we need each other so I do this for us!
If you have never experienced an eat clean & get lean challenge please consider, go to and check it out. I don’t want you to miss out on something that could change your life- it changed mine.
