Can You Be Un-Consciously Healthy?

Imani Sankofa

The last 2 weeks have been quite busy for me. Busier than usual...My stress level has been higher than normal.

I told myself I could have 1 chocolate bar. After all, I've been eating really good. One chocolate bar turned to many chocolate bars. "Ding dongs", I thought. Hubby said, "NO!" Well I'll just have some chicken salad from Chic-fila and some sunflower seeds instead. Before I knew it, I was eating chicken salad almost everyday sometimes for breakfast. And don't even ask about the sunflower seeds. I think I might qualify for the world record of most eaten.

My water intake has not been consistent like before. Kidney-liver flushes and exercising only every other day...maybe? Did I mention the popcorn I had at the movies last week? "You can't watch Wolverine without popcorn", I told myself.

It was no surprise that I gained 4lbs over the last 2 weeks. I think my feet are swollen. Yeah, its my "special" week, but they didn't swell last month. WTH?

So I paused today between the loads of laundry, running errands and wondering why the IRS wants more money from me. How did I get here? I think I know. I was so confident in the health information I already knew and the routine I had in place. However, when my routine was interrupted I became unconscious of what I was doing/not doing and eating/not eating. In my mind, I thought I was still ok. But the scale says that I'm not.

SOLUTION: Back to my old routine for "normal" days AND create a new health plan for my more "adventurous" days.

Today, I'm grateful for good health, a strong body and sound mind. I'm thankful to my Bowflex scale for alarming me that I had been unconscious for the last 2 weeks. I'm thankful for the opportunity and mind to get back on track.

It's a beautiful day, and all is well in my world!
