Yep, I was on vacation for the past week, which is why I didn’t post. I was actually planning on posting, but after Harper’s Retreat, I got sick. I think it was a combination of stress (running an event, even a successful one, is stressful) and the fact that allergies are killing me, and poor Kate was so sick during the event. I have a very depressed immune system even during the best of times, so it really was the perfect storm. At least I had plenty of time to sleep (mostly).
However, when I get sick, or stressed, the first thing that goes is my eating habits. I haven’t been exercising either. Speaking of a perfect storm. So this week, since I’m going back to work, it’s time to get back on the horse. Tuesday is going to be hard – we’re going to the movies for Brian’s birthday, and I LOVE movie-theatre popcorn. BUT – I’m going to commit to health, and that means no large popcorn. A SMALL popcorn will be fine. And a water – not a soda. I need to do this – for me. I need to reclaim my health. So one thing I will do is tomorrow morning, before work – I’m popping some popcorn at home, and I’ll bring it into work. I’m recommitting to the gluten-free way of life, and I’m going to be eating healthy.
I’m also going to be exercising. I’m committing to exercising 3 times a week, every week. I will be reclaiming my fencing lunge. I’ll be getting healthy, and lifting weights. I’m done being unhealthy.
