I got sick last week, then got my tattoo finished on Friday, so my workouts just… weren’t. But sometimes we have to listen to our bodies – it appears I had a (relatively) mild version of the flu – tired, achy, chills, then hot flashes, but no coughing, sneezing, stomach bug, etc. Just really, really tired. Here’s my new ink:
I tried to get extra rest and eat well, and just accept that sometimes, stuff happens. Hopefully, that’s enough.

No hot yoga this week.
No weight training.
So, like I said, not the best of weeks, but I was sick, so I’m OK with it as it is. Again, other than a couple of scrambled eggs for lunch one day, and an egg to make gluten free pancakes, I ate vegan again all week. I’m really proud of myself for sticking it out for as long as I have, without feeling cranky, deprived, or even that it’s hard. The hardest part has been cooking two full separate meals each night – the men in my life will not eat most of the vegetables I’m cooking to replace my meat, and they won’t give up their meat, either! We’ll figure it out…
