Everyone at work got a cold in the last few weeks, and I was happily avoiding everyone and trying my best to stay healthy. Unfortunately on Day 20, I finally got the cold. I was down for a couple of days and felt miserable.
I didn’t get to work out much and generally couldn’t do much. In that time, my garbage disposal and washing machine broke and I really hit rock bottom. I needed to take a break from everything to reassess my life. I didn’t blog and really took a break from work turning my work phone on silent.
I want to take control of my life and that was the catalyst for this transformation. I was out of control with food, work, friends and I just had no balance. I also have no idea what I want in life so food became my comfort. I just thought it would be easier to find a purpose. I have so much reflection and assessment to do of my life.
On a lighter note, on Day 22, I was finally able to go outside again and had lunch with a friend at Honor Society in downtown Denver. This was the best cobb salad I have ever had. It was so yummy! They also had carrot and ginger lemonade and I need to find a recipe.
I am planning to get back on my workout routine and cooking more food at home after Christmas is over.
I am grateful I recovered quickly from my cold and my energy level coming back.
