Yay! I want to be marvelous, count me in!
I'm still :x fighting off the chest cough and congestion from my horrible fluy bug. But this last week my appetite returned with a bit of a vengeance. I had about a day and a half of monstering my way through all things edible. Yesterday I got a handle on it....I hope. Part of the issue was that while I had no appetite I was just eating whatever I wanted. I wanted very little, of course. But still, if I craved cheese, I had cheese; Rice-a-roni, that's what I had. I needed to get nutrition and calories. But when I suddenly got hungry again, I was still in that mode. And a slice of cheese turned into a quarter pound. A couple bites of a fried chicken biscuit was 2 whole sandwiches. Etc..... and GRRRRRRRRR!
I've also all but abandoned exercise. Just walking up stairs sets me into a coughing fit. It's getting better but not quite gone. I did start taking flat earth walks again on Friday. And I've been doing bits of yoga with and without the ball.
My high level goals:
*Get back on a solid exercise schedule; easing in more in terms of what I do so as not to cough my head off but doing something substantial daily
*Eat wholesome foods, whole ones mostly, lots of fruits and veggies, when hungry, not too much, often enough to keep the metabolic fires roaring
*Keep nutritious snacks (fruits, nuts, protein bars) with me at all times so that I do not give into whatever insane craving is triggered by ravenous "starveration"
I'll micro manage them later I'm sure. :lol:
Thanks, SQ, for consistently organizing us and keeping us on the right track.
