I am not feeling well. Body aching, sneezing, ears are aching, eyes running, congestion, scratchy throat.
I refuse to use not feeling well as an excuse to eat badly. I will admit that it is so much easier to not think about what I put in my mouth as I struggle to breathe and my body aches.
However, if I succumb to not being conscious about my food choices then every bad day, my monthly aunt that comes to visit, a special occasion and all of the rest of life's activities can be utilized as an excuse not to take care of myself.
I have not made it to the gym one day this week but I have been conscious about what I have been putting in my mouth. I even looked for sugar free over the counter medication so that I wouldn't take in extra useless calories. I have also noticed that I have more of an appetite than normal. So I have been eating more. More fruits, more lean protein. I have had a couple of cookies but not to the point of excess. I do believe that your body needs more rest and more food when it is fighting germs.
This journey is all about choices. There is always a choice.
Stay healthy all. Being sick blows!
