Happy Friday everyone,
The recovery fighter support group is officially started and active online with discussion forums already flowing, and I just want to say thank you to the strong souls who are putting their heart, time and support out there to help one another.
If anyone else wants to be a part of it, please let me know. It’s a private group so you can only join via email invite through me. I set it up this way so it remains a safe and private place for all of us.
So onto today, who knew that my sweet tooth is still alive even when I am sick?
Being sick has really taught me a different level of self care.
It’s taught me that my body truly has a mind of its own.
Now that I am sick, I am not really in control of what my body needs right now. If it doesn’t need exercise, it doesn’t, and that is something I have to honor.
If it wants food and sweets even if it’s not working out, it needs that, and I need to honor that too.
This is the kind of self care where I really need to take my own self out of the picture and just listen to my body.
My body has a mind of its own, and it really doesn’t care what Ed thinks.
Even on the days where we try to tell our bodies not to crave certain things, it doesn’t care. It will crave it even more, right?
Our bodies don’t care that it didn’t exercise today, it still wants and needs food. My body is probably enjoying its staycation from the gym in bed most likely-even if Ed is not.
My body doesn’t care that Ed is telling it to not want certain foods.
Praise and long live to my strong fighting body that doesn’t care what Ed says.
