My diet? Oh, that thing? Well....
2 weeks ago I got a sore throat. By that night, I knew I was in trouble. By 4am the next morning I was texting people at church saying they'd need to find a replacement for my volunteer position that day... no way was I going to make it.
For the next 2 days I laid in bed. After that I thought, "Hey, I'm feeling better!" and posted that I was feeling 90% better on my facebook page.
Whew was I wrong! Sure, I was able to walk around, but it was another week and a half before I was truly better. My best guess is that it was a crazy mix of thyroid issues & allergies.
But y'all, when I'm sick, I eat comfort foods. Psychologically, it makes me feel better, and I'm a big believer in the power of the mind.
No really... frown and look grumpy and have bad posture for a few seconds. ......... Now straighten your posture, smile, and pretend you're gorgeous.
The latter always makes me feel better-- it's just a mental thing.
So while I was sick, I sent Josh out for some cookies and ice cream. Ice cream is a staple when I'm truly sick. I swear that McDonald's kids ice cream has saved me from getting full blown sick before!
But back to what I'm avoiding... I did gain a little weight back. 2 lbs. Honestly, I'm sad about it but I don't regret it. Sure, I should have given my body better nutrients while I was sick, but I also think it's better than not eating and not getting food in my body at all. And I also drank a LOT of water (sore throat... hello!).
Oh, and did I mention on top of all of that we opened a new campus at church, I logged a lot of volunteer hours during that time, and helped put on 2 major events at work.
Now it's back to the grind-- our normal schedule (praise the Lord!), and workouts!
And this week? I promise to do at least one extra workout.
How about you?
