I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything…
…and I have to apologize.
I haven’t been feelin’ so well the past few days.
Whatever is going around finally got to me and I’ve been feelin’ under the weather since Sunday night.
So under the weather that I’ve only been to the gym once this week.
And it’s also affected my appetite, too.
My taste buds were shot and couldn’t taste anything (still can’t) and even started craving nothing but junk food.
I was miserable with a sore throat, a yucky cough, and a runny nose from hell.
So I turned to comfort food.
On Tuesday, my co-worker brought these to work…
Now, I don’t know if you’ve ever had these…
but they are SOOOO friggin’ GOOD.
It was full when she brought it in the morning…
by the end of my shift, I think I may have devoured HALF the box by myself.
And no I’m not exaggerating.
I probably would have had more, but one of my other co-workers hid the box from me.
That’s how bad it was.
But I thought to myself… it can’t be that bad. I’m gonna be going to the gym tonight anyway.
And really, I had planned on going to the gym.
Except, that as the day wore on…my body just got weaker and weaker.
I was miserable. My entire body just ached. And I had the chills. Pretty bad. And a fever.
So I stayed home to rest.
Yesterday, I went to work. Brought a yucky can of chicken noodle soup for my lunch.
(Yeah, it’s not the healthiest, but I haven’t been feeling up to par to make me anything healthy…)
And all I craved was a Frosty from Wendy’s.
Yes… totally gave in. Went and had a large fries plus a small chocolate Frosty.
It felt soooo good on my throat.
Oh hey! On the plus side! Being sick has made me REALLY thirsty the past couple of days and I probably drank over 120 oz of water per day.
So that’s good, right?
(That’s what I keep telling myself)
Was looking forward to having some coconut water when I got home… totally needed the electrolytes.
But hubby decided to buy me this instead.
Yeah…not the greatest tasting drink. Not that it was bad, either…
But I was sooo looking forward to coming home and downing some C2O to quench my uncontrollable thirst.
I did drink it, though… because it was loaded with lots of good stuff – lots of antioxidents.
And then for dinner, I had….
DRUM ROLL PLEASE…..
A bunch of it. Because that’s all my body wanted to eat.
Being sick really makes me do some weird things.
That brings us to today.
Thank goodness I had the day off.
I was able to get some good rest in and I’m feeling a whole lot better.
I still have a terrible cough, but I think I’m over the feverish stage. So that’s good.
And although I may not be 100% yet, my healthy appetite is finally comin’ back.
This is what I had for lunch.
salmon w/celery, carrots, cucumbers, and some crab all mixed together with mustard and plain greek yogurt (instead of mayo)on a layer of baby spinach ALL on top of whole wheat sandwich thins.
I even tried to get a workout in.
When I heard my hubs and his bro were going off to do some field workouts… I felt the urge to go with so I could run on the track.
But he shot me down…told me I needed to stay home and rest some more.
He’s going back tomorrow…
And I’m hoping I’m well enough to go, too.
