getting motivated!

Monday, February 18, 2013

I've had the cold/cough thing going and quite frankly --- I've feeling a bit down in the dumps. But worse than that, my tracking and planning have been in the toilet! not good --- and even though I haven't felt 100% -- doesn't mean I should change my eating habits! Why is it that when I'm sick, I think I can eat whatever I want in order to get well??? That's just not smart of me --- but I think it goes way back to when we were fed certain things to get well --- the chicken soup, the pop sicles, oj, 7-up --- and on and on! But I really think most of those are just comfort foods with lots of mental power attached --- I believed they would help, so therefore they probably did! But now I know that a healthy diet would make more sense to get healthy! I know it --- now I just need to consistently do it!

I'm hopefully on the way back to feeling like my old self again --- here's to a better tomorrow!

    I hope you feel better soon. I've had that cough/cold crap for about a week now and it sure drags a person down. Hugs!

    Try something really healthy like a green smoothy. I think soup is a restorative. Hope you are better soon.

    It sure has been going around. My water aerobics instructor coughed so much that she broke a rib. So now I am the one to demonstrate the moves while she says what we are doing. Hope you feel better soon!

    Hope you feel better soon. I think we all feel alittle of that when we are sick most likely from our mothers and grandmothers feeding a "cold" back in the day, always trying to make us feel better by really good food, lol. emoticon

    I am sorry to hear you are under the weather. Please, get well soon. Love the pic of cute kitten in the potties. (^^) and I like the list of foods. By the way, I have joined "awesome A team " for the 5 % challenge.

    I love your Spelled OUT Plan!!

    I don't know if food can help you feel better once you're sick. But I know that eating good healthy food can keep you from getting sick. I haven't had a headache, a cold, or any ailment common or otherwise since last July.

    What's different?
    Treating B12 and D deficiencies,
    following Dr. Fuhrman's 6 week plan and now Life plan,
    adding more and more anti-angiogenic foods into my diet plan.
    eliminating processed food
    generally eating more vegetables in the last 6 months than I have in the 64 years before that, TOTAL!!

    I've mainly done all of the above to prevent getting a 3rd cancer diagnosis. That hasn't happened either. I know it could, but it won't be because I continue to live on donuts. Really!!

    I wonder if I could turn all that into a snappy little spelling list?
