I'm definitely on the road to recovery.
Last night and this morning was the worst of it. I had so much sinus pressure that I had nightmares of my back teeth being pushed out of my head because of the pressure.
I still can't smell or taste. And I'm okay with it. Sort of, I've got some chicken soup simmering (not from a can) and I'll bet it smells lovely.
I'm too zapped to work out, but our elliptical is going to get a beating when I'm better.
Speaking of exercise. As I mentioned before I like the Pandora station "Hungry Like The Wolf". There are 2 things that I have added just for kicks.
1. If a commercial comes, I call it a bonus round. I go as fast as I possibly can without passing out for the duration of the commercial.
2. If Billy Idol's Rebel Yell comes on, that is the Super Deluxe Bonus Round and I have to push it as hard as I can for the duration of the whole song.
After it's over, I usually want to french kiss Billy Idol and then poke him as hard as I can in his side ribs until he cries. Then I make fun of his crooked lip.
Yeah, so Day 20 and what am I learning.
I'm not nearly as impulsive as I was 21 days ago.
I can live without prepackaged food.
I don't have to go to Starbucks all the time.
While I'm a really awesome baker, I'm a shitty juice maker.
I don't miss sugar.
I know this is going to take a long time. But here's the deal:
God willing, 2 years is going to come and go. In 2 years from now, I can still be hooked on sugar and chocolate milk and being sedentary; or I can get off my ass now so that in 2 years I can look at myself and say, "I'm so glad I got control of my life 2 years ago."
If you think you need to get healthy and you are disgusted that it's going to take a long time to do it, just consider that. The time will pass.
What are you going to do with it?
