Sick with flu :(

I haven't written for a while because I was sick with a horrible flu. I did get a flu shot, but I don't think that stopped this horrible thing from migrating inside my body. Anyway, I am better now...and feel like a whole new person. Isn't that weird how when you get over an illness you feel incredible? I don't know if everyone feels like that, but I do.

I stopped exercising (of course) last week. I did do some weights last night. I decided I am going to ease back into exercising. I plan to do yoga tonight with my new mat I got for Christmas. I haven't done yoga for a while, but I think it is a good "ease back" into exercises thing to do. I don't want to go full force back into it and get burned out. Plus I want to make sure I really am better.

I wasn't really eating much when I was sick. Chicken soup and saltines with jello was a good meal for me. On Saturday, I was feeling better and the appetite returned. I pretty much ate anything I had at the house. I did not go out for food though, even thought I really wanted to. I wanted an entire pizza or steak n' shake. I did treat myself with a chocolate eclair donut at the grocery store with a latte though. It was yummy.

Last night I made lean cheeseburgers and potato fries to help with my food cravings. It really did help. I also had lf chocolate milk. That was so satisfying to have something like that after my sicky time. I knew when my appetite returned it would be crazy, but it wasn't as crazy as I thought. Apart from wanting pizza or burgers I did crave some sweets, but the donut helped with that.

I just read an interesting article on WebMd about "diet shockers" or foods that help you stick with eating well. You should all read it.
