So far this year has not gone according to plan. This week I got over the flu, but I have developed a cold which has kept me from being able to really start exercising much (I did manage to eek out 4 miles though). So it is time to really step back and try to build my immune system (which is weakened by a condition I have). I am:
1) Drinking 10 glasses of water a day
2) Taking powder vitamin C and liquid echinacea (they are supposed to absord easier!)3) Making sure to get at least 8 hours of sleep a night.
4) Drinking 1 oz of Noni Juice a day (it tastes nasty, but it is already helping in some other areas besides immunity, which I won't gross you out with :).
Hopefully, these steps will help me get and stay healthy! If not, I may have to do something drastic, like go on a week long juice fast. Yikes!
Reading the Bible and praying have been going well, which is helping me with my attitude about being sick - God's been giving me the grace to be much more thankful this week. God loves me unconditionally, all of our needs are met, I am married to the man of my dreams - what do I have to complain about!!
Sadly, I did not get my etsy shop up as I planned! Being a procrastinating perfectionist, such a big task seems almost overwhelming! I did manage to get a good profile picture (which I still need to upload) and take photos of new calligraphy pieces I gave as Christmas presents. Next week, I am determined to get it up and running, and to achieve that, I have the mini-goal of working on it at least half an hour a day. I can do anything, no matter how daunting, for half an hour!
What do you do boost your immune system in the cold/flu season? How do break large tasks into smaller, more achievable ones?
