Excuse: I'm sick
Buster: This doesn't mean I *have* to "feed a cold" and become a couch potato and what that implies as far as food choices.
To me, being sick or injured is about the only legitimate excuse as to why your progress has slowed, mainly because you are/feel incapable to exercise like you were doing and need to take it slow.
BUT that doesn't mean going off the rails with food choices or not drinking enough water! (with obvious exception to a stomach bug)
Right now I have a cold that is kicking my butt and I have to say that it's been really hard not to "feed" my cold... I do feel those tendencies, but I'm making a positive choice to still eat right (maybe even better) and drink enough water even though (and because) I'm not getting as much physical activity as usual.
Sure, the scale may still not be as happy with me if I were healthy and more active, but at least I'll know I didn't purposely make matters worse with bad food choices.
