I spent the majority of yesterday afternoon like this.
Well, this plus sweats and socks and lots of rain outside.
I left work early because that cold I caught this weekend was really catching up to me and my brain just wasn't able to focus on projects w/ a sore throat and stuffy nose. I came home and parked it on the couch and FINISHED A BOOK while downing lots of tea. And then I took a glorious 45 minute nap.
I don't know about you, but when I'm sick, I hit that sickness with everything I can think of: extra vitamin C, Throat Coat tea w/ honey, hot steam, green smoothies, soup, lots of H2O and some rest. The last few years it feels like I've been getting more sick than I used to, which I attribute to never taking a break, getting overly stressed and working out constantly.
Each time my body gets sick, I get nearly knocked out so that I'm forced to do nothing. Over time, I'm finally realizing that this is my body's way of saying "Fine, if you won't sit down and relax every once in a while, I'm going to make you park it for 48 hrs straight."
Today, I'm not feeling much better and the highlight of my day will probably be walking the dog. I might also go through my stack of magazines and work a bit more on my vision board. Here's a few of the things I've ripped out so far.
Okay, well back to the sickie routine...grab kleenex, blow nose, wash hands, drink water, lay on couch and repeat.
And on aProject Food Buzz note: Have you seen these awesome Round #6 entries? I'm loving Angela's hiking bounty and Jenna's retro picnic. I've been so impressed with how much time and energy all of the entries have clearly taken. This challenge is no joke!
