Beating Lady Days

Evening everyone. ^_^ This morning started off rough. I awoke from a horrible dream where I’d been abducted by Russians! It was pretty horrifying and I almost started crying when my sister (or lack thereof) came into the dream but luckily I woke up. Yikes! I felt drained the whole day, maybe due to this dream!

Breakfast started off with some good ol’ PB and various jams on toast with a glass of milk. Homemade huckleberry and pumpkin butter! Nom nom. I really wanted a green smoothie but sadly I let myself run out of greens!! Don’t worry I remedied that at the store today.

Pacific Soup Giveaway!!

Well my appetite is coming back. I’m taking that as a good sign that I am seriously getting better. I had a lot less of a cough today and blew my nose less. BUT I now have a lot of head pain and pressure. Whatever I can’t win.

My green smoothie this morning was exceptionally good though. I replaced the cup of milk with a cup of Evolution Apple Carrot juice and boy did it make this smoothie pop! Blended with nonfat vanilla yogurt, spinach, frozen banana, and fish oil. Yum-o.

No Power!

Man I’m waiting for the day my post starts with: I am no longer sick!! I can’t believe how long this cold is hanging on. I’ve gone through way too much cold medicine, with no solid results.

This morning my body didn’t feel like a green smoothie but some hearty Weetabix mixed with an orange slice, apples, and raisins, plus a drizzle of sunflower seed butter. Mm I’ve missed this.

New Quarter

Since I had my giant breakfast of French toast the night before, I was not ready for breakfast come Monday morning. That’s okay. Eating intuitively is about listening to when your body is hungry, and boy mine was not!

It did get a little growly during my first class of this quarter though, about 11am. To appease it I slipped into my lunch for a baggie of trail mix.

Bleh. I’m feeling really sick tonight so I’m gonna make this a quick one.

My breakfast at work was the last of my sweet potato frittata, fresh fruit, and a tall iced orange refresher with black tea instead of water. Before this I’d drank an unpictured double short ristretto Americano with one pump Flan (**new Starbucks drink coming soon!) and a splash of breve. I actually really like the Flan syrup because it is very subtle.

Mug of Medicine

So my first day back in school went okay.

Woke up still pretty darn sick though so I kept breakfast simple and just had a bowl of Stonyfield’s Low Fat French Vanilla yogurt. Slid right down my aching throat with ease.

On my way to school I stopped at the open pharmacy and looked for the medicine that works for me, Theraflu. Sadly I found out there is a shortage of the stuff since they had to shut down some of their factories, but I found the last box of off-brand! Even though it was for “nighttime” I sipped it down during my first class, Medical Nutrition Therapy.

The teacher in this class seems awesome and I’m actually pretty interested in the subject.
