So sorry for the hang up…

I have spent the last few days in a near-death state.  A little bit of an exaggeration, maybe; however, it really did feel like I was waiting for the reaper.  The night of the ‘day after’ my first full Insanity workout I started getting dizzy, got the chills and had a fever of 104 degrees!  I went to work on Monday, left early, and slept from 4pm – 5am the next morning.  Then went to work on Tuesday and my co-workers made me go home after they saw me sitting in the 90 degree sun, with a sweatshirt on, freezing and shivering, looking as pale as a ghost.  So, I was asleep by 2pm – up at 7pm to say hi and goodnight to my son and down by 8:15pm until 5am this morning.  I think, sometime between 3-5 am this morning my fever must have broken because I’ve actually made it through a full day of work today.  Yay!  I still feel a little out of it, but no fevers, no chills, and no more dizziness.  I finally ate something today too, which probably is helping me get back to normal.  So again, my apologies for the delay in the Insanity updates, but my body really took a hard hit for a few days.  I do wonder if part of it was the intensity of the workout or if it was just a coincidence.  I guess we will have to see.  I’m going to gauge how I feel in the morning and if everything is good – I’m planning on getting back on the wagon tomorrow after work for my next workout.  Keep your fingers crossed and wish me luck!

    Yikes, that sounds awful (he said, typing through mask, gown and gloves). Glad you’re on the mend. Eat wisely now and build up your strength again.
