Is it ok for (MS-y) me to have a week off being as healthy as possible?
Every Christmas, Easter, birthday or occasion-of-any-sort equals more sugar, wine (I can feel hungover after a small glass, so I’m not talking a lot of booze here), less helpful food choices and uncomfortably NOT doing yoga (I start to feel uneasy by day 2 of not yoga-ing).
During these times, I end up gradually ignoring everything I know about how to take care of myself and eating myself into a state of headachey-fatigue.
So here I am. All slumped and exhausted. My rubbish bin full of Easter egg foil.
Apparently some mice with autoimmune disease have been seen to increase levels of myelin through fasting, and in some cases have completely reversed the disease process. I am currently way too foggy and auto-immuney to work out how the hell they know this about these tiny little creatures with their tiny little myelin sheaths.
I wish they would put me on a fasting experiment. It might sort out my unstoppable sweet tooth.
So here we go again. Back to the beginning. Back to cutting down on all those delicious energy -sapping culprits.
See you on the other side.
