guess what? i am feeling more like a human today. i woke up and had a pounding headache and slight body aches, but that’s it.. no other symptoms lingering. well, aside from my lack of appetite. i am sure that will be back before i know it. it’s real weird to not eat food regularly or think about food when i am not eating it. i definitely miss having an appetite. i also haven’t been working out.. my last workout was in palm springs last sunday. monday i was traveling and tuesday at 2:30 AM is when the flu bug of death bit me.
because i haven’t eaten anything OR done a single workout since last sunday, i really have nothing to blog about. i haven’t even been a functioning member of society at all this week, so i can’t really tell you about my days. they have consisted of sleeping a LOT, playing words with friends and posting photos to instagram. speaking of.. if you are an iphone user, get instagram and then let me know your name so i can follow you! my username is janetha. i know, so creative. here are my most recent sick kid instagram shots.
saltines + lemon lime soda. sick food of champions, right? i didn’t even care that the saltines have hydrogenated oil. sometimes only the real-deal saltines will do.
my fever at 102.4 degrees on tuesday. ick.
i tried to eat bread and soup. i managed to eat a little of it. thanks to my husband for making it for me. he’s a pretty good nurse. i switched from lemon lime soda to coconut water—much more beneficial and hydrating.
marshall went and got me a huge thing of frozen yogurt. you know there is always room for ice cream! this was coconut and tart mixed together. penny had a bite. so did randy.
marshall stuck me in quarantine. at least i had the pups to keep me company.
this is, HANDS DOWN, the best breakfast ever. i ate it regularly as a kid.. except with white bread. all it is is toast with lots of butter—real butter, mind you—and warm milk mixed with nestle quik. you fold the toast in half and dunk it into the cocoa. oh man.. talk about a trip down memory lane. cocoa and toast (as my fam calls it) is always the best for a sick stomach.
fever was going down by wednesday.. 100.8!
i had to go into work yesterday, so i grabbed some lunch on my way in. more frozen yogurt. this time it was pineapple, vanilla and coconut. i don’t waste my time with toppings.
after a measly 4 hours at the office, i made it home and back on the couch.
home is where the hound is.
penny always blinks when the camera flashes. i think she’s related to my sister, marisa, who is notorious for blinking. either that or she’s just a dog who doesn’t understand english, so when i say, “pen, don’t blink!” she looks at me like “whatcha talkin about ma? and what’s with this bright light in my eyes?!”
marshall went to the gym last night and penny took a 2 hour nap on me. i couldn’t move, even though i really had to pee. i mean, look at her, could you?
and last but not least, i was messing around with the labelbox app paired with instagram to produce this beauty. i love deb and her grapefruits!
so, as you can see.. i haven’t been up to much. definitely no meals or moves. i am really bummed that i came down with such a horrible case of the flu, because it put my insanity challenge on hold for a bit. i haven’t done insanity since last saturday in palm springs. i was going to do it sunday, but the DVD wouldn’t play for some reason (i bought the discs off craig’s list and they are a tad temperamental), so i did a bodyrock.tv workout instead. anyway.. to make a short story way too long, i haven’t done insanity in almost a solid week, so i am just going to start back up again on sunday so i am not all twacked out on which day i am on (since insanity goes by weeks). i hope i haven’t lost too much of my fitness! i have the fit test coming up, so we will see how bad this little break really is for my progress. i don’t care that i am not working out, but i do care that this is messing with my insanity challenge. it sucks that i had to stop! oh well, life goes on.
oh! i totally forgot that i have a giveaway winner to announce. sorry ‘bout that. these things slip my mind when i have my head in the toilet. TMI? anyway.. the winner of the ascenta health omega 3 giveaway is………
congrats, abby! you win. send me your mailing info and i will get your healthy fats on their way.
well.. sorry to be such a bore. i sure hope i do something blog-worthy soon.. or you all may stop reading all together!
