Remember when I got sick back in March? In that post, I claimed that I almost never get sick, but, not even a year later, I’m sick again. Wahhh. I hate being sick. 🙁
On Saturday morning’s 14-miler, my nose started to run, but I figured it was just the cold weather that was causing it. By Saturday night, I felt really rundown, but I figured I was just exhausted from a super busy day. Yesterday, I didn’t feel much better, but I tried to act like I was fine. I figured a low-key day would help me fight whatever sickness I had contracted. Unfortunately, I was wrong.
By the time I got home from Dave and Marie’s house last night, I felt terrible. I took a dose of cold medicine and went right to bed. I slept through the night, but I didn’t wake up feeling any different. My nose is still stuffed-up and now my throat hurts. 😕
I’m sick as a dog! 🙁
Needless to say, I’m taking it easy today.
Since I’m not feeling well, I was all about comfort food for breakfast this morning. I made my favorite bowl of oatmeal: banana with walnuts, chia seeds, and a huge scoop of Teddie peanut butter. I also drank 1.5 glasses of iced coffee with soy milk. The cool, creamy iced coffee felt so good on my sore throat.
Feeling generous this morning? For just $13 you can donate a Thanksgiving turkey to a family in need. I just donated one! 😀
The Greater Boston Food Bank’s “Turkey Ticker” is online donation tracker that records each $13 donation as one more turkey on the table to feed a family in need. You can also create “Turkey Teams” and challenge coworkers, family and friends to raise the most money. This year, the Greater Boston Food Bank will distribute 40,000 Thanksgiving turkeys to families in need.
Question of the Day
Do you eat differently when you are sick? What foods make you feel better?
