Energy

I'm on my 5th (and a 1/2!) day clean and I'm still a little achy but mostly tired. When does the energy start to return? I would like to do some cardio but I have bronchitis. Would weights work?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks

In the first 5 days with bronchitis a person should give yourself a break. We should drink water, take vitimans, antibiotics, eat right and exercise when you can. But I would say to take it easy you don't want to stress your body when you're recovering from bronchitis.  Walk for 30 min once or twice a day. Stretch .  Get a massage. Be good to youself. You are doing great .  CONGRATS ON The 51/2 days

Congrats on 5+ days,just wondering if you are taking vitimans(a good multible,B complex) I feel they make a difference.I am on day 9 with no meds and the energy is here,I have not felt this good in years,the last few years the vics just helped to keep me moving because I was so sick from this addiction.Today is better than anyday with mamas little helpers.Take care of your bronchitas it could turn serios.About the exercise I have no idea that is the next on my list to be the person I want to be.So the short of it is energy is right around the corner doll !Hope you feel better

Thanks, I really needed to hear that.

I am taking vitamins, a multi and B6.

That's great on day 9! I hope I feel as good as you do when I get there. Hopefully once the bronchitis clears up, the energy will return. I'm out of bed and at work so thats a plus.
Did you taper or go ct?

Thanks for your help. I'm trying to take it day by day. At least that's better than hour by hour. I'm ok for the first part of the day then I get home from work and ready for bed by 10. I guess it may just take a little longer for me. Thanks again!

Congrats on day 5!!! The low energy ,I believe, is part of the package. GROAN!!!
It comes and goes for me...some days i work out and feel great,,,a nd today i worked out and i am still dragging a**. So..i will do what i have to do today and the rest will be waiting for me tomorrow!

The bronchitis probably isn't helping the matter...so take care of yourself....and you will be feeling better soon!

Thanks. Its nice to have someone that has been clean for about the same amount of time. I don't know how you do this and have kids. That's pretty amazing.
