#121 - A Letter to Myself.
Wednesday, January 23, 2013
I know that the last two weeks have been rough. First, you had a stomach virus, and now, its sinuses/cold. I know you aren't feeling well, and the lack of energy is frustrating. However, turning to crappy food won't help your body; in fact, it only leaves you feeling worse. For example, Monday night's Mexican dinner didn't help you at ALL! You felt sick (both sinuses and stomach) and bloated. Heck, the Taco Bell you ate yesterday just made you feel guilty. You KNEW your body needed nutrients, not crap. Your body can't heal properly with high-sodium, high-calorie, yucky food. (Sure, it may taste good at the time, but is it worth it?)
It's time to turn things around TODAY. RIGHT NOW. You made a great choice this morning for breakfast, and I'm proud of you for drinking two cups of water, but you have to continue it throughout the day. Fruits, vegetables, water, green tea, and healthy proteins will help you recover faster. Those foods are jammed pack with wonderful vitamins that will make you feel better. It will keep you on track even though you aren't 100%. It will get you back down to the 146 pounds you saw last week which is in the right direction. Don't allow the 150 pounds or this illness control what you eat, how you sleep, or what you drink. Got it? Good. Now, let's do this!
