I have had a cold since the weekend, and for the past 2 days it has really drained me. I swear I keep hearing my mother's voice in my ear,"Starve a fever, feed a cold..." It's weird how your mind will play tricks like that trying to get you to take off the brakes and go eat a lot.
I haven't done great on my food plan but I haven't done terrible. We had a med supply rep at our office today doing a demo, and he had brought Panera bagels and several kinds of cream cheese. (Evidently he know how nurses eat) He offered it to me several times but I didn't eat any and I'm going to go ahead and be proud of myself for that. I knew that as crappy as I was feeling, once I started eating to feel better I would keep on eating, and eating, and eating...
He put the leftover bag of bagels in the break room where we eat lunch, and I stil avoided it, plus the OPENED box of Girl Scout cookies someone left on the table. So that was good.
But at the end of the day when I went home I made spaghetti for dinner with turkey Italian sausage, and if I had measured my portion, that would have been good, and if I had made a salad to go with it, that would have been better, but I just ate a good sized plate of spaghetti and then some seconds.
The stupid cold has me feeling too tired and depressed to exercise much. I did some yoga yesterday, trying to unstuff my head and clear my breathing.
I'm not going to beat myself up for yesterday. Just going to keep going today.
