Last week found me suffering with the mother of all colds and feeling really sorry for myself. I don’t tend to handle illness very well, but common sense prevailed and I gave in to my body’s desire to be nursed back to health.
After a week of doing just that, still feeling the after effects of ‘scary heart day‘ and not being allowed to do anything other than the mildest of exercise (doc’s orders) – I have come to the conclusion that I am, indeed, slug woman.
- Over the past few day I have more than overindulged in snuggly evenings on the sofa with Mr Chic.
- I have eaten way too much (I think I’ve been feeding my cold to starve a fever – so I went with it).
- I have sat at my computer for hours without moving around or exercising.
- In fact, exercise last week was journeying from the bed to the fridge and back again 🙁
As a result I have the speed and stamina of your average slug! To top it all off, I’ve had an overwhelming desire to stuff the entire contents of a pack of biscuits down my throat. Seriously guys, my mind is filled with thoughts of chocolate digestives. I even wrote an ode to a biscuit:
An Ode to a Biscuit
I’m sure this is just a blip; I think my body’s going a bit haywire. It’s used to fresh air and lots of exercise. I don’t think it takes too well to being cooped up with a head cold. I cannot wait to get back to myself! How about you, does ill health affect the way you eat or the foods you crave?
And for those of you wondering; I did have a couple of biscuits. I don’t believe in denying myself, I’m just controlling the urge to keep Cadbury in business 🙂
