Off the Rails…

So, I didn’t write yesterday. I was planning to do so after work, but I had a headache. So, I napped and watched Cadfael on Amazon Prime. I also completely went off the rails yesterday. I had to get a COVID-19 test. I was informed that I was possibly exposed.

I am terrified of this disease. I have several physical issues that put me in the high-risk-for-dying group. Being intubated was the worst experience in my life, and I won’t go through that again. It was the worst experience of my life. And this sent me off the rails.
On my way home from the test, I stopped at Taco Bell and got three soft tacos. Not 1 not 2 but 3. And I ate them.

Then after work, I honestly did not have the umph to cook. So, I ordered a pizza. And I ate it. Now, I did make good choices when ordering. It was a 10-inch cauliflower crust with spinach, mushrooms, onions, and cheese. It was delicious. And I ate it. I didn’t gain today when I weighed in. It doesn’t help to reinforce my bad behavior.

But, yesterday did help to reestablish my resolve to care for myself. I walked. It has been about two weeks since the series of injuries started. I walked this morning. It was twice around the complex, which is one mile. There was some discomfort but nothing intolerable. I always feel that I can stay on track when I walk.

So, this morning, I made an eye appointment. I know this will help my headaches…and funk up my look a bit.
I ate my breakfast. And I plan to cook tonight–Tumeric chicken and curried couscous. And if it is good, I will post it tonight.

And in this time of unrest, may we find justice and peace in our communities. And be kind–especially to yourself.

PS…the food wasn’t that good. I am going to try it again next Saturday night.
