Keep getting sick with throat infections???

Monday, March 04, 2013

I have literally had one throat infection after another. First is was pharyngitis, then tonsillitis, then strep, and now I am undiagnosed but it seems to be getting better. I am going to go mad if I get another throat issue! This is in the course of a month and a half and has kept me out of the gym for over a week now! I don't know why I am getting this all of a sudden, and back to back, but it needs to go back where it came from and never come back! I am so mad because I was on a roll and I won't lie, I have been eating kind of crappy while I have been down. I swear if I don't work out, I pig out.....why? I have no idea. It goes hand and hand with me. Think it is more of an emotional thing really. I get depressed because I can't work out, I feel crappy, so I want to eat crappy. I know it doesn't make sense but it is true. I will say this.....all though I have my times of eating badly, it is never actually as bad as it used to be. My badly now is a hand full of nuts with honey drizzled on top and 6 mini marshmellows. My old crappy eating would have been a big bowl of ice cream, probably 3 to 4 servings, with melted peanut butter on top and maybe even some kind of chocolate stuff. That would be after my 2 slices of oversized gooey, greasy,cheese pizza. That just made me

I have been up and down emotionally so I decided to log into spark and get some motivation. Though I am not better yet and still unable to work out, I can still get mentally ready, right? I know I probably gained a little back again, but I am not going to freak out. I have been dealing with a lot and I am proud to just say I am getting through it and still trying to stay positive. As soon as I can, I will be back at it!

    I am the same way....if I don't exercise,I eat crappy.
    And like you, my crappy eating is way better than my regular eating of before. emoticon
    Feeling sick is a bummer but take the time you need for your body to recover and make a point to nourish it with nutritious foods so it can fight the infection.
    Sugar makes it hard for your body to heal itself.

    Hang in there ............. Not long ago I had some set-backs with chronic pain issues (feet-plantar fasciitis) .......... very painful and had to cut many of the forms of exercise out that I really enjoy .......... like Zumba and all weight bearing stuff ............. so I gained a little .............. But til you are better , if you even track your food and really bone up on Vitamin C and really nutritious foods .......... in short ......... take care of you and your health .......... and I hope you see improvement soon! Get lots of rest too ................... emoticon
