I just had the most depressing phone call. My doctor called with the results of my blood work: I am apparently a recovering mono patient. Who knew? The good news is I am in recovery. The bad news is NO WORKING OUT. You heard me: no high impact cardio or ab workouts for FOUR WEEKS. This is torture. I am on Day Seven of Jillian Michaels’ “Making the Cut” and have been doing so well! I haven’t missed a workout and have been diligent with my diet– and now this. Luckily, I am allowed to do the elliptical machine (no danger of falling and rupturing my spleen) so I hope to remain healthy via that little gem. Also, I am allowed to walk….hooray.
And so we dawn Day One of “Making it with Mono”. Step One: mint chocolate chip ice cream. Step Two: go for a walk. Hey people, you gotta start somewhere.
