I’m sitting here coughing and sneezing and feeling like I just want to sleep the next week away… What’s worse is I can only blame myself 🙁
After a great comp season, I survived every cold and sickness that came my way. I was surprised considering I was eating quite a limited variety diet and literally working my butt off. Through all that fatigue and depletion, I didn’t get sick once.
So why am I sick now? Because I dropped the ball. I’m fairly certain I can blame it on not eating enough veggies, sleep and from drinking alcohol again. My skin is also the worse it’s been since before my last prep. Now I, and my poor household, have to suffer the consequences. It’s not pretty.
Enough feeling sorry for myself now! Time to get my s*$! in a pile and back in track so I can get better!
Here are a few things I’ll be using to boost my immune system and get back to feeling myself again 🙂
Cleaning up my diet
It’s all about the greens baby! Luckily, somehow my love of broccoli has survived 2 comp seasons in a row so I’ll be eating at least 1 whole head with each of my main meals.
Stop drinking alcohol
At least until I’m completely better. Even after that I’ll limit the crazy nights to just one per week.
Vitamins & Supplements
- Vitamin C
- Olive leaf extract
- Garlic, echinacea & zinc
As much sleep as physically possible. It’s been over two weeks since I’ve been able to train and my body is starting to seize up from inactivity. But still, best not infected my gym and take the time for a full recovery.
Speaking of which, I’m off to bed right now….1
