I Surrender,take 2
Still sick. I feel like my body is very angry with me. Problem is I dont know what would make my body happy right now. Rest? I feel stiff and sore from inactivity. Exercise? I feel like, as my momma says, I have been run over by a mac truck. Hummm, how do you take care of yourself when you don’t know what you need?
Alrighty, I will start with the basics. I need loads of water. Glug, glug. I need nutritious food (at least my appetite is healthy). Breakfast was awesome. Half of a small mystery melon with a yogurt cup and oats sprinkled on top. Very satisfying and delicious. The yogurt has some sugar added but I decided that the protein, calcium, and “friendly bacteria” made up for it in nutritional value. And I was so thrilled to finally find REAL OATS at the supermarket yesterday! We actually bought some instant oats a few days ago out of desperation but they just reconfirmed my dislike of them. Instant oats are over-processed and as a result have less nutrients and cause your blood sugar to spike out of control. Instant oats often result in increased hunger while regular oats are very satiating. And this is plain instant oats, don’t even get me started if you add sugar and artificial flavor.
I think some light exercise is in order today. Gentle and with awareness to when enough is enough. On that note, out the door I go!
