I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.
Okay, I’m being dramatic.
Yesterday was a great day. I managed to make healthy decisions all day (despite the bagels in the break room) and didn’t have a snack attack. I also went an entire day without chocolate or cookies, a feat in and of itself. And I woke up with a headache. A killer headache! It was a sharp, throbbing pain over my left eye kind of headache. I ate a good breakfast and the headache persisted. I took a pain reliever and the headache persisted. I slept and the headache persisted. I was miserable. So I ate Oreos and the headache went away almost instantly. With the headache gone, I was able to get up and take care of things, including laundry and sermon prep for Sunday.
The lesson for day two is to ease into healthy habits. I tend to be a go hard or go home kind of girl. But, I went hard, cold turkey, and my body wasn’t happy. At all. Clearly a daily chocolate and or/cookie habit hasn’t served me well. So my short term goal is to slowly wean myself off sugar/chocolate/cookie by Monday. That way I create the habit I hope for without the needless pain.
Dear Readers, how’s it going for you? How do you regroup/rebound after a slip?
