This weekend I had a gastric flu-not nice no! However, the body did what it had to do to get my attention and it worked.

I was eating too much these past few weeks....I knew it but you know when you are aware of something but ignore it even if it bothers you as such?That was me...I'd eat titbits left by Greg, eat something sweet etc and I truly felt like I was eating all day long....finally my body rebelled and with the painful gastric gone, I am being more aware of what my body tells me...whether its hunger, thirst, cold or tired, I am listening.

Alot of times we ignore our body and treat it as a machine, but unless we realise that without it we are nothing and take loving care of it,as we care for our family, we might loose our health, groundedness and life itself. I am listening and its amazing how many things its telling me!

so true... it's especially easy to ignore when you're body is telling you things you don't want to hear!

Guilty! I'm guilty of this too.

yuck! Glad you are feeling better. I know what you mean about pushing our bodies. I am guilty of it too. I need to start sleeping more!

I can relate to treating our body like machines...I can say I am so guilty of doing the same! I have also vowed to take better care of myself...starting tomorrow:)

Smooches,
