Sleep, riches, and health to be truly enjoyed
must be interrupted.
~Johann Paul Friedrich Richter
I'll do my official weekly weigh-in tonight at my support group meeting. Last week, I was down half a pound. Yahoo! But who knows what tonight will bring.
I have been sick as a dog for the past twenty-four hours.
It may be the flu, although I had my flu shot last fall. I'm no longer throwing up, but I'm awfully achy this morning. But I've wondered if it's something more...
I haven't journaled since Friday morning, and because I stopped being accountable to myself, I allowed lots of extra food to sneak in: a larger portion of this, a bowl-full of that. I'm very well aware that I'm way over my calories for the week.
Although I may have the flu, it also feels like my body is saying, "Enough is enough!"
I think sometimes we have to be really sick before we can appreciate how great being healthy feels. So I'm going to take this 24-hour bug and use it as a springboard to get back on track. Even if the scale doesn't budge for weeks and weeks, I KNOW I feel so much better when I treat my body with the respect it deserves.
Until next time...
