So this month has not gone according to plan AT ALL.
I got in one fitness challenge class on Feb. 2 before being smacked with what has probably been the worst bout of illness since….I can’t remember when. I had the flu, a strep infection, and a minor ear infection. After experiencing complications with the antibiotics and being in and out of the doctors, numerous tests, two weeks later I was finally starting to feel human again, only to come down with a horrible 24 hour tummy bug. One day of reprieve and I now am starting to get a cold! I get it, my immune system is shot! Oi!
This was not how I envisioned this month going. I find it entertaining how when you finally go to take a step forward in life, the universe finds a way to test your commitment. Well test away universe, I will not waiver! On the bright side, this illness has brought on a serious (but unintentional) refined sugar detox, an increase in fluid intake, which I am having to maintain illness to illness. You know what they say “21 repetitions makes a new habit“, well I am on day 21! With being so ill, not having the appetite or desire to eat has made it easy to choose healthier alternatives to my normal comfort “sick” foods. So…game on Universe, bring it!
I look forward to the day very soon when I can return to not relying on cold/flu medication to get me through the day and all these horrible antibiotics and drugs have left my system. If anyone has any ideas on how to rebuild your immune system I am open to hearing them!
I know there is a nasty flu flying around right now. I can seem everyone posting about it in my Facebook newsfeed. So get plenty of rest, eat healthy and take lots of Vitamin C and Echinacea! Be Well!
