If it’s just in my head, I will exercise through a cold – not insanity level, of course, but I’ll do some light cardio indoors. If it’s below my head, I generally ride it out with cold meds, tons of water/tea and soup ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m starting Insanity tonight! I’d try the cranberry juice method. I usually work out through a cold depending on how bad it is.

@squeak:  Not a bad idea! I hadn’t really thought of doing taking pics. This is a first for me to say but I’m not really too heavy. 5’2″ and 125. Lost a lot of weight through proper diet- used to be in the 145-150 range. I just need a workout that doesn’t have the same cost as a gym or require weights to help me tone up before a wedding in May.

I agree, if illness in only in your head you can exercise, but if it’s in your chest then you shouldn’t!

When SO says ‘Your boobs are getting bigger,” its a good time to start working out again! My pants are a bit snug and I reallllly don’t want to be the bridesmaid who’s dress is just a bit too small!

Is anyone else doing Insanity on here? We should create a tracking thread of some sort for motivation

As long as I don’t have body aches usually working up a good sweat makes me feel better and opens my sinuses.

Nothing gets rid of weight faster than long distance running (which I find slightly boring after about 5 miles) or boxing. I’ve been boxing competitively for 4 years. Not that you have to compete, plenty of people come to class who have no intention of ever doing it. So it’s a great cardio workout that burns fat, and tones your core and arms at the same time. And there’s no harm in learning to throw a good cross should you ever need it.
