I've been sick all week...

I got laryngitis last Thursday which has been accompanied by a super stuffy nose and chest congestion.   

I haven't been to the gym all week (I usually try to be there 4-5 times a week) and have only been craving comfort food (this is code for anything fattening, sugary, salty or all around bad for you) in copious amounts.  With the way I feel I don't think I will be back up for any type of actual exercise until at least early next week.  

*hanging onto the wagon*   I feel like this is going to completely derail all that I have been working so hard to maintain over the last few months.  Any wise words to (1) stop me from being so down on myself that I can't keep up this week and (2) stop me from continuing this unhealthy pattern and understanding that all my hard work isn't going down the drain.  

Blah!

Yuck, I hate when I am sick and don't feel like eating good foods. I do find though that when I eat better when sick, I feel better faster. It's ok to give in to the comfort foods some but try to stick to healthy as much as you can.

Thanks ladies....apparently any control over my cravings goes out the window when I take cold medicine.

Tomorrow will be better  (fingers crossed)

I've been sick too, so i feel  your pain.  Your body NEEDS the rest so that's a good thing to give it the rest that it needs.  You're not going to derail.  Let you mind go, rest and get well, then start fresh when you're feeling better.

Thank you!

It's so hard to not get discouraged, but I've sure tried this week.  

I am giving myself through the weekend and will start fresh on Monday :-)

Hope you feel better soon as well!
