Over the weekend I started getting a cold. Luckily my sore throat felt better on Monday but I still had an annoying runny nose at work all day and a clogged head. I came home from work and I was soooo hungry suddenly. All I really wanted was some honey bunny grahams and dark chocolate. I didn’t have either of those though and didn’t feel like driving to the store, so then I thought of pancakes and chocolate chips. That sounded delicious and that was what I ended up having Monday night for dinner along with an apple and peanut butter. I have been on a peanut butter kick lately too.
Tuesday, I went out at lunch to buy a sinus rinse from Walgreens since I used to have one at home but I don’t think I packed it and needed something to clear my head a bit. I came home from work and used it right away and I could breathe through both nostrils again and was so happy. My head still felt a bit clogged, but I know in time it will get better. Then it was time to think about dinner. I still wanted honey bunny grahams and dark chocolate. I decided to head to Whole Foods, as I also wanted a grapefruit and since I eat grapefruit for breakfast, my supply was getting low. Sadly they were out of bunny grahams, but I did pick up some dark chocolate and grapefruit (which happened to be on sale and I didn’t notice till checking out!!) to satisfy that craving. I had the most random plate of food for dinner.
So basically I haven’t been wanting to eat meat for dinner (I do eat sausage with my breakfast and honey ham with my salad for lunch), but maybe today I will dig into the chicken I made over the weekend as I don’t want it all to go to waste. I also made veggies over the weekend and so that why I have some random broccoli on my plate. One thing I have noticed since getting this cold is I want ALL the carbs!! I bought some oyster crackers at Whole Foods to have with my dinner and some dark chocolate. I told you it was completely random, but I like to honor my cravings. I eat everything separately and it works for me.
I ended my Tuesday evening with some yoga poses for a cold. I searched online and found a few poses recommended to relieve sinus congestion and I have to say even just holding each of these for 30 seconds (except the headstand that was probably like 2 seconds) it did help relieve congestion for a bit. Even though I don’t have the energy for a full hour long yoga class right now it was nice to do a mini sequence from online.
Thank you Jenn for hosting!!
