At the start of the year I considered a detox. For like a hot minute, then I realized I would just continue to eat well, get more rest and take time to care for my health. You know continue with the master plan of reclaiming my health! A plan for life. So I can grow old, gray and active. Continuing with making small but longterm lifestyle changes like I have been.
Then I woke up this weekend feeling worn out, run down and not myself. By Saturday afternoon I was experiencing the full blown flu. Turns out the flu provided me a detox by default. It was unpleasant to put it mildly. It felt like a truck ran me down, and backed over me. Again and again. So yah, fun times.
I am just now feeling myself today, somewhat. I still feel tired and have been resting. A lot. The kids have also been down for the count, as all but one child has been sick. And Mike, good old husband of mine, well he was the start of the whole experience last week. As a result we have all been resting, drinking plenty of fluids and nursing back to health.
It has been an odd time of family bonding. Complete with the chills and soup. Personally, I would have preferred a beach vacation. Because while I love soup, everything else has been less than ideal. Plus with a beach vacation there is sun and fun drinks they serve in coconuts! Oh well, next time. Until then more rest.
