I second Meghan's suggestion of a Registered Dietitian. It might be that at the moment your needs are different to what it was before.

It's only 3 weeks - your body needs time to heal. I guess you would likely have been put on antibiotics. If so, that would possibly knock the stuffing out of you for a while, (even if you have already stopped taking them) which can make it very hard to get back to where you were before.

I guess my take-away is to keep in contact with your Dr and ensure that he/she is aware of how you are feeling, including lethargy/lack of motivation etc., and be guided by his/her advice.

Lyme's Disease...not fun! I am glad you were able to get it diagnosed. It can be tricky to get a correct one with Lyme's.

Have you considered working with a Registered Dietitian to help your body heal? Your doctor should be able to refer you to one who can work with your health history and current diagnosis.

Have a set of fallback on track options for when you get sick. Drinking x amount of water, mediating for 10 minutes a day, doing a certain set of stretches, whatever is most appropriate for you when you are off. As you start to feel better, perhaps add on two days of fifteen minutes of exercise.

Alternately, make sure you set your goals with different markers based on how you feel. So you might set a 30 minute exercise goal three days a week, but option one would be gentle stretching to light yoga, option two might be an exercise bike or pedals, option three might be walking and option four might be jogging. Any level would count toward meeting your goal, but you choose which level is working for you on a daily basis.

-google first. ask questions later.

I'm on my third week of struggling with Lyme disease and I'm having a tough time staying motivated with healthy living. I had great momentum going before I got sick, but obviously couldn't workout or cook the first week I got really sick. I've been on antibiotics for a week now and I'm feeling much better but I'm having a hard time getting back on the wagon. Any tips for getting back on track after a setback?
