Last week was difficult. I felt ill a lot and I didn’t handle it very well emotionally. Rationally I knew it was just a set-back, but I was disappointed (and angry) to have to deal with it so soon after starting to tell people that I was feeling better.
It’s tempting to see a cause and effect – that as soon as I said I’m starting to trust my improved health, it failed me again. It’s also tempting to try and analyse why I felt so rough and what I should have done to prevent a) the set-back and b) the emotional meltdown.
But I’m resisting the temptation to brood on what’s done and gone. I’ve noted a few points to bear in mind, but basically I feel OK today so it’s onwards and upwards. Or, in the case of my weight, onwards and downwards before my trousers become unbearably tight!
