Now this is annoying, but might be a good thing.

So the tummy bug went away, but now I have flu. Yeah. Just can't seem to win. Still, this is an actual winters flu and not a summer one, so I feel like I at least took the step in the right direction.

But you know what? These setbacks actually motivate me more.

Yeah I know I know. I probably won't be able to move tomorrow. But I really want to get back to healthy living.

Not because I'm gaining weight (don't think I am yet) but because I could feel within days when I started feeling less than good. And it happened because of a diet change for the worse. During our move to the new house, we basically lived on fast food and that still hasn't changed.

Boy am I feeling it now.

So. I am definitely getting back to drinking copious amounts of water and rooibos tea (very good for when I have flu) and then I'm definitely eating better. And once I'm better, I'm definitely exercising again.

Because this feeling crap thing really isn't working for me.

Especially since it was partly to blame for me missing fencing tonight. I don't like when things set me back. And my health going back to what it was is definitely standing in my way. So changes will be made.

What about you? Want to join me and work on living more healthily?

I've been exercising, biking mainly, and I drink a smoothie that I make with vegetables and fruits - mainly for breakfast.

I already live healthy. In my opinion, getting all freaky and gung ho generally leads in failure. As is said, all things in moderation. I eat what I want, when I want and don't gain squat. A little exercise, some walking and staying active is key for me.

Yep, as I age, I realize how much my diet affects how I feel. I've gained weight this past year, so am trying to get back on track. it's a relentless effort!
