Default Starting off with an unintentional fast

I went to a family gathering on Monday and was so darn proud of myself for eating well and not letting anyone get to me. One of my cousin's is a nurse and kept talking about how many people with the flu she's been treating lately and that her kids all came down with it.

When I heard that I should have taken a bath in bleach and gargled my lungs out... because I came down with the flu yesterday. Nothing will stay down, except a sip of water every few hours. I have setup camp in my bathroom, with a bucket, iPad and a small water bottle.

So I guess I am starting out the New Year with a "cleansing" fast!

I can finally keep water down and am feeling less awful already. Hopefully this is the 2 day flu.

I lost 6 lbs yesterday, but I have no illusions that it won't all come back as soon as I'm better!

Get better quickly!

On a side note, I lost 5 pounds with my flu battle, and it's still off! Even after the holiday season. So here's to you being as fortunate
