I am stubborn sometimes, or, maybe it's lazy. Either way, when my body tells me things I sometimes don't listen...and man am I paying for it.
I'm not paying for it in extra pounds (although there are a few) or injuries (knock on wood), instead, I'm sick.
Let me say, I hate being sick! Other women complain about how their husbands are big babies when they are sick, well, mine is not, but I am! I whine and I whimper and I feel like I've been hit by a bus when I probably could be a lot worse! This time is different because, not only am I a big baby, but I brought it on myself!
I know, I know, a cold (or whatever I have) comes from a virus so I am not 100% to blame...but let me explain.
I haven't had a cold in about a year. 12 months!! 3 kids in public schools, a husband that works with the public and I work in a building with about 4000 other people...and I avoided a cold for about a year. Colds have come and gone in my house, other illnesses have come and gone, but I avoided them. No, I wasn't running around like a germ-a-phobe, quite the opposite, I was just taking care of myself. I was fueling my body with what it needed to stay healthy and I was working it out to keep it's immunity up...and then...
I decided to slack off, quite a bit. I can't tell you how many stomach aches and bathroom issues I had over the last few weeks, simply from over eating and eating horrible things at that. I think what really did me in is that I decided that soda was way more important than water and there were days where I decided not to drink water at all (days and days in a row)...HUGE mistake.
So, now I sit here...sick but getting better...but reminded even more so than the tummy aches did that I need to take care of myself. So, it's a deal. Back to normal and healthy and, well, happy not being sick!
Take care all!
