This week started off tough! My daughter oh so sweetly shared her cold with me then woke me up twice a night for the next several days. Arg! Finally, tired of being sick I “cheated” on my candida diet and added elderberry syrup, containing honey, to my tea. Then the little one comes home grumpy and things go farther down hill. After she went to bed I told myself, “since I cheated anyway I might as well have cookies and ice cream.” Good grief. Have you even gotten caught with this mental talk? Definitely not my best moment. After all, I am a health coach, I should no better right?

It seems I needed a reminder. It came in the form of a headache and nausea. I hadn’t eaten any sugar in two months. A concentrated dose was more than my system could handle. What is more, it didn’t make me feel any better.

What did make me feel better was a hot bath with Epsom Salts and a good book. I went to bed that night feeling much better and wondering why I had put myself through the pain of a sugar hangover.


Lesson learned AGAIN!

The good news it that I have the opportunity to start over. Life gives us plenty of chances to mess up and to pick ourselves up and try again. So consider me up and trying again.

So next time you are having “one of those days” please remember that you are not alone. I am right there with you. Imperfect progress is still progress!

    Such a good reminder. Thank you! I had more sugar than normal this week and found myself short with the kids and short on energy. Time to improve that, hopefully tonight will be better!
