Animals travel in herds. Gum comes in packs. There is strength in numbers. Illness recovery takes time. Strength is gained over days, Dear Readers. DayS, as in plural. DayS, as in a number of them. Savvy?
Today, after days of fever and not doing much of anything but sleeping and whining and moaning, all of which help greatly, I am beginning to gain my energy back. Tomorrow, I am planning a workout and possibly a proper Sunday breakfast treat for my family but If one of the two get accomplished I will be happy. I will indulge in sleeping in the recliner tomorrow if required and try to ignore the guilt. We have big plans for the coming weekends and I need to be healthy. Two ways to tell I am not my best, I do not exercise and I do not eat greens. I did neither today... Sometimes the hardest part of being ill is the guilt associated with being ill. Give yourself permission to just "be." Indulge in gaining your strength and let your loved ones help. I know it's not easy but stuff will get done, even if not perfectly. Sit and point. Tomorrow is a new day and feeling better will come.
