sick day

thanks for all of your comments about yesterday’s goat cheese spread & wishes for me to get better.

sadly, i woke up today feeling about a million times worse than i felt yesterday. i slept like crap because i couldn’t breathe and then my throat would hurt because i had to breathe through my mouth and it wasn’t fun.

i ended up moving to the couch with one of those seated pillows to try to sleep sitting up and it kind of helped but it was still really uncomfortable.

anyway, that just means that i’m still in my pajamas and am drinking as many fluids as i can get. i’m trying these emergen-c packets that liz sent me.

i also juiced up a couple apples, orange, lemon, and carrots for some extra nutrition this morning.

i made the juice into a smoothie by adding frozen banana, chia seeds, and this packet of amazing grass.

hopefully that helps!

brad is also bringing me some medicine on his lunch break so i don’t have to venture out into the fresh snow.

so i’m catching up on my dvr’ed shows and snoozing today with my liquids and lots of kleenex within arm’s reach!

even though i feel like crap today, i hope you’re feeling great & have fun weekend plans!

You’re on the right track with all those liquids! If you like masala chai, you should try this recipe from my blog. It’s my mom’s recipe for masala chai and I swear, it cures the common cold. Or at least makes you sleepy so you rest and get better quicker ;)

I know exactly what you’re going through! I’ve been fighting a throat infection and even though I’m on antibiotics I don’t seem to be getting better…more than lame. Emergen-C is awesome though, I’ve been taking it every day.
