That Feeling of Getting Healthy
Sunday, April 23, 2017
Today I am beginning to feel that awesome feeling when you know you have gotten over the worst part of a sickness, and I am turning the corner to healthy again. For me there seems to be just a few hours between feeling really sick and then knowing the worst has passed.
During this past week I have spent 6 days going from chills to fever, congestion, body aches and pain. The only positive thing was that I had no interest in food whatsoever. So happily the scale did move down a pound. While I was in this state of feeling sick I really tried to think about what my body wanted for nourishment. Surprisingly it very clearly told me, fruits, soup, veggies, and water.
Now that my appetite is returning I am beginning to crave those not healthy foods. I am just listening - not acting on these cravings. It feels good to not act on the impulses. I am exercising my resistance muscle and it feels really healthy.
