So I'm sick. I can't breathe through my nose and my face hurts and I'm getting dizzy standing up because my ears are clogged , but I feel super guilty that I haven't worked out in a couple days due to this. Any body else feel guilty when they can't work out due to illness?

You shouldn't feel guilty, exercising during illness can be very bad for your body

If you are sick it can cause more damage prelonging your illness & you could cause further injuries to yourself.i try and work out every second day but if im sick i dont worry.

Last time I was sick it was a migraine, I get them often enough that it's a pain but not life stopping anymore. 
Try Steph's body Stretch off my liked list. It's short and not a lot of quick movements. Nice and easy ;) then you have something slow, not super strenuous and no more guilty feeling!

I just got over being sick (a lung and sinus thing) and when I did cardio tonight I noticed I was getting much less air than usual so I had to slow down. Just rest up so you can get better as soon as possible and then take it easy. Also I agree with the stretching thing, and maybe do some walking when you're starting to feel better.

Everybody lapses sometime. Don't be so hard on yourself. Start easy is my mantra for breaking the inertia. Like really easy. Something like: Good Morning Sunshine
Office Neck Stretches
That's what I do. Once you have started its hard to stop . And once you stop its hard to start again.  So I would say just do something even very easy everyday just to keep the momentum and build a habit firstly.
