I’m going to be frank with you all. It’s an odd feeling going back to your everyday reality after almost three weeks. Not that I’m complaining — I’m HAPPY to be feeling better and able to tackle the real world again. Just odd. 2 day work week anyone?
For example: I haven’t driven in 3 weeks. Should be a run drive to work with the little bit of snow we have on the ground :).
I want to thank you all for your sweet words on yesterday’s post. I feel like I have been sick WAY more than average this year — which is kind of a bummer. This last one has definitely caused me to reevaluate a few things and really sparked a desire to start being a little more intuitive with my body.
Last night was my first real meal in about 56 hours.
Chicken noodle soup and a piece of garlic toast. I had been living off tortillas and peanut butter with crackers (although I did branch out to egg whites yesterday as well), so this food tasted DELICIOUS. I may have tackled a little more than my body was ready for, because I think our neighbors could hear my stomach rumbling after. Woof! Oh well, at least it all stayed down and didn’t have me in pain :). Win win!
I also enjoyed some mint chocolate chip ice cream with chocolate sauce as dessert last night. Zach said that’s how he knew I was really feeling better. (AKA, I’ve been in tough shape because I haven’t even thought about sweets here lately…) LORD was that ice cream amazing. I may have gone back for a second small cup. Yum.
Workout of the Morning
Yes — in my current state I am considering a hilly walk with my dog a work out. Gus and I were able to get out this morning and enjoy the (very cold) sunshine for a little over 40 minutes. It was good for me to get some fresh air and walk around, while still taking it slow and easy.
I am planning on squeezing in another walk at lunch today at work if possible — but we’ll just have to see how the day goes.
At this point — I am honestly just so thankful for my health and to be feeling somewhat normal — words can’t even express. I am SO thankful to have been able to walk this morning, and to have kept down food yesterday. I will work to never take that for granted again!
I’ll be back later today with a planned review of the first book I finished over our honeymoon: Omnivore’s Delimma.
Questions of the Morning:
- Anyone else feel that they gotten sick more than normal this year?
- Anyone else been taking advantage of good walks lately?
