It has been almost two weeks since I have written an update on my health journey. I caught the flu/cold the past week and it has been hard to do anything other than my regular routine – go to work, cook, clean, sleep and repeat. Isn’t it ironic that I got sick one week into my resolution?
Honestly, I haven’t worked out in the past weeks. The energy and motivation was not there at all. I was just too sick to to get up earlier than I normally do just to work out. I wanted to sleep more and relax so that I could get better and get back on to my regular programming. Although I didn’t do any workouts, I did manage to eat well during the past few weeks. It wasn’t my regular salads and chicken breast because I wasn’t feeling up for that. When I am sick, I want something warm and soothing so I opted out for a more easier to swallow food such as congee and soup. I jam packed the soup and congee with vegetables such as spinach and ginger to help with my sore throat.
I am almost at 100% and cannot wait to go back on track with the workouts. I got the eating part down but working out, not so much. My main goal this week is to get back on track with my daily workouts. I know it will be challenging but I will try my best to do so.
I hope all of you have a wonderful Monday!
