Got knocked on my ass this week! After a wonderful and fun (and completely non-Paleo) weekend in New Orleans, I came down with a slow moving but evil cold. At first I thought I would go workout on Tuesday, but as the day progressed I started feeling worse and worse. I decided to sleep instead of working out. It was the right move as I got worse the next day and on Wednesday night I was a huge feverish mess on the couch. I was feeling a lot better Friday so I decided to go to the Rockets game with my husband but that turned out to be the wrong move as i woke up yesterday with a sore throat again. So my morning plans to finally get back to working out were dashed.
It’s now been over a week since I have worked out. Coming off a weekend where there very few paleo options for me in Nawlins. If you want someone who has re-designed their life into a healthy one go nutso, give them this scenario. I feel guilty for eating all that food and I worry about what my workouts will look like when returning after an unplanned week off. It’s hard to turn the guilt off. It’s also hard to get back to entirely clean eating when I love sweets and I had a few and now I want more. So with that being said, I am thinking of doing a Whole 30 to get back to my eating roots. I just want to make sure it’s the smart thing to do and I am not doing it just because I feel guilty for last weekend.
So that’s where I am and why I haven’t written! Too busy trying to feel better from being sick. And there might be other distractions that I can’t talk about yet. (No I am NOT pregnant)
