Oh hey friends…excuse the fact that I haven’t gotten dressed yet today.
I’ve been in bed sick all day today. I got up for work but realized that I’m going to be completely useless there AND I would just be making myself even more sick/exhausted/unable to heal if I’m running around all day. It’s always tough for me to decide to try and do the right thing for my health and take a day off…I always feel like I’m letting someone down.
I thought I felt fine yesterday and was surprised when I woke up with a sore throat, headache, and the works…but in retrospect there have been warning signs. I have been suuuuuuuuper low energy and sleepy at work the past two days; I’ve had more achy muscles than usual; due to those two things I scrapped two runs this week; last night I couldn’t keep my eyes open past 5:15pm; and I’m sure the stress in my life is affecting my immune system as well.
Today is supposed to be a “vegan eating” day for me and I’m not sure what else I’m gonna nourish myself with today. I have had a ton of green tea and lemon and I made some soup using a vegetable-based broth (it actually tasted really good). But now I want some honey in my tea and some jell-o…hmmm.
On the plus side….apparently Ritz crackers are “accidentally” vegan! I’d totally been avoiding the box in the back of my pantry because I assumed they were full of butter. Now I know what I’m snacking on while wishing that my eyes would just pop out to make room for all the crap clogging up my sinuses!
