I am not going to the gym while I am sick but I will eat my meals. It is very difficult with no appetite and I'm having trouble gauging my hunger. Normally I feel hungry all the time, but now I feel yucky. Eating more often while I am sick is very hard. Normally, I watch the clock like a hawk, waiting for the next opportunity to eat. The past few days, I am glad to be on a disciplined eating regimen, otherwise I would barely eat. Eating disciplined is so important for what I am trying to achieve. I can't let a little sickness stand in the way of my goals. I hope to be sick for only a couple days. I am afraid if I work out too soon I will prolong the cold, then I will be out of the gym for an even longer period of time.
Meal 3 is going to be a nice big smoothie made by Sam. She is such a good smoothie maker, that I always say yes when she asks if I want one. I wish we had our old Vitamix blender. That blender is by far one of my favorite kitchen items on the planet. I think if you lost all your appliances but still had access to power this thing could feed you. When you are in a restaurant or a juice place you will see this thing in the background. The downside of it and reason I don't have one yet is the cost. One day my old friend, you will make me smoothies again. For meal 6 we make fish, rice and veggies. Wow, this is so yummy. I could eat fish everyday of my life. It has to be one of the tastiest things you can have for meal 6/dinner.
I am starting to feel like I have lost all of my momentum. I continue to eat and drink very well but it is like my body has gained back all the fat. I feel the lazy thoughts taking advantage of my situation. I have already had the thought a couple of times today, "You missed a couple days, what is a few more?" I usually plan to have 2 days off a week, so I still feel ok about the missed time. I made a commitment, which I plan to see through, as soon as I feel better. I think listening to my body is very important. As bad as I want to get back, I must stay calm and wait until I can give it everything.
This is meal 6. Fish, olive oil, garlic, parsley, pepper. Wrap, bake, eat, bada bing!
This is the what I enjoyed, watching my wife eat. I didn't even get close enough to smell them, because I would of said, "eh" and ate 12 of them.
Thanks for reading
