I should have seen it coming…if a picture is worth a thousand words, then here is a thousand words to describe my day:
Me? Under the weather? Nevah happens! Or at least that’s what I said on Monday!
Note to self: NEVER feel silly for “knocking on wood” after saying something that is crazy albeit plausible! Call me superstitious if you must…but my congestion/runny nose/watery eyes/scratchy throat is all the proof I need!
Pretty much every hour of the day has been spent downing one of the above items!
There were signs, but I was in denial.
1. Tuesday: Feeling really tired and worn out. Remember how I said I could barely hold my head up while typing my post? Yeah, it was 8:30pm! I chocked it up to staying out too late at the Preds game the night before and not getting enough sleep.
2. Wednesday morning: Sore and scratchy throat. “Hmm, must’ve cheered too much at the hockey game! It’ll go away!”
3. Wednesday evening: Although I felt uber tired and lacked motivation to workout, I pushed myself to do it since I had already laid off for two days. The workout kicked my tush and I just attributed it to being a lazy bum on Monday & Tuesday.
Hello!?! Anybody in there? You’re body is TRYING to tell you that you are getting sick!!
Today started out with some nutrient rich foods! Helllllllllo vitamins!
Blood oranges were on sale at Kroger yesterday so I decided to pick one up to try. The taste is difficult to describe (especially since my sense of taste is a little off right now), but it was definitely tangier than a regular orange, but not sour or bitter. I really liked it…plus, while I ate, I dreamt of Michael C. Hall! Ahhh, Dexter, my handsome little sociopath!
Although it was a great breakfast, I didn’t intend on it being my only substantial meal of the day, but after
surviving working 4.5 hours at the hospital, all I wanted to do was crash. The only good thing about all this snow is the fact that it lightened our out-patient schedule today and allowed me to leave early. I got home around 12:45pm and was in my pj’s and snuggled under a massive amount of blankets by 1:00pm!
After a few hours of napping, I decided to get up and
force myself to eat something.
Then I decided it couldn’t hurt to pound some more vitamins, so I made Angela’s Flu-Buster Clementine Creamsicle Smoothie with what little bit of energy I could scrounge up! Luckily this recipe couldn’t get any easier! The only ingredients I left out were the date and the lemon juice (no haves!)
The perfect sore throat soother! I just wish I could enjoyed the taste more! I sipped on half right after making it and the other half was finished off just a moment ago. Hopefully all that vitamin C is working its magic in my body now!
Well, looks like it’s gonna be an early-to-bed night for me! Eyes are getting heavy and it’s only 7:30! Hope you are all doing great and please forgive me for falling behind on commenting on your blogs lately…hopefully I can catch up over the weekend
if when I’m feeling better!
What is your go-to cold-busting food combo?
