Last week was a mess. We had a three day blizzard and the kids were both sick. Being stuck at home all week, topping it off with fevers and gnarly coughs makes for a rough week. I felt like we couldn't even do anything fun together during the week because the kids were so grumpy and had such short attention spans. By Wednesday I had given up (this starting the previous Saturday) and we pretty much chilled for the next three days. Lots of movies, which of course means lots of popcorn. The worst thing for me is to be stuck at home all day long with nothing much to do. I couldn't go out because of the storm. Even after it stopped snowing I wanted to wait as long as possible for the roads to dry. Besides that, the kids were still sick. It's like they were holding a coughing competition to see who could cough the most. Of course that meant coughing all night long which translated into bad sleep all week and also me being tired, and achy. I was fortunate to not actually come down with what they had, but I think my body was definitely fighting it because I didn't feel my greatest last week.
I sure am tired though, and it's only 8:30. When I am coming off of a food fog, I am always tired. That is why it is so hard to get momentum going, you have to claw your way through the uncomfortable stages before you can reap the benefits of eating healthy. You have to deal with cravings, fatigue, mood swings, irritability, and your body not being happy before you can start feeling good. It's your body's way of cleaning itself out and that isn't a pleasant process which is why it is so hard to start. I just have to get past that phase.
Well, on to day 3.
