I found it really challenging to eat "clean" with a cold/sinus infection/drippy throat. The thought of protein and veggies was sickening. The thought of fruit and white bread was nice. I definitely did not overeat calories, or eat junk. I had no cookies, cake , candy, ice cream, chips. But I did not balance my carbs and protein.
Today I am back on plan, even though I do not feel 100%. After over a week of being sick, you start to believe you will never feel normal again!

- Six years ago I decided (age) 42 would be my magic number. I stepped on the scale for the first time in a LONG time. It was a BIG number, it was a SCARY number, but mostly I knew I had to own that number. I lost 40 pounds, leaving the obese category behind. In 2014 I committed myself to working out HARD and a low sugar diet, losing more weight and gaining nice definition. Then life happened, and I lost momentum, gaining some weight back. My goals now are different, and include completing my first ever marathon at age 48. GULP! You can read about the next part of my journey here.
