Down but not out
I feel really bad I haven't blogged. I've been off the grid with this stupid stomach virus. The grossest of them all.
I'm on day 8 now and have seen a doc and will be doing tests as well as booked into a naturopath for Wednesday.
My spiritual friends reckon that my body is in a state of cleansing/detoxing. Supposedly when you want to reach new levels of spirituality your body can shed parts of its self, just like a snake does.
I like the sound of that way better than "Food poisoning"
What I did realise in this down time was how much I missed my health, maybe even took it for granted.
I haven't eaten this many white carbs since I was 5. I'm literally eating tiny teddy's and honey toast.
I miss moving and working out, I miss healthy foods, I miss vegetables! It has given me a whole new appreciation for my health and for food.
I also had to change the way I viewed being sick, I was letting it really take hold of my mood and I was getting really frustrated. I decided that for whatever reason I was going through this, it was meant to happen and being in a shit mood wasn't going to help that.
I also learned that American Horror Story is one of the best series ever made and that vegemite toast never goes out of style.
I've missed out on girls lunches, and even a catch up with (my hopefully new mentor in food critiquing) Matt Preston. But we all know that health is more important than everything and I will be up and at 'em in no time.
I also learnt not to complain about "feeling fat". One day you might just not be able to eat all those things that made you feel fat in the first place and thats the saddest thing of all.
