Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US!! Is everyone planning on eating lots of yummy food?
I’m happy to report I’m feeling much, much better this morning. Still not 100%, but I think all that rest I got yesterday helped immensely. In fact, I even have enough energy to meet my girl, Heidi, at the gym this morning I will definitely be taking it easy, but it’s been three days since I’ve last worked out and I’m about to go insane! We’ll probably do our usual hour, hour and a half at the gym, then hit up Starbuckies. I think I’ve mentioned a couple times that Heidi is almost 9 months pregnant – and today I’m going to surprise her with a couple gifts I’ve gotten her lately – I hope she likes them!!
Anyway, yesterday was pretty damn uneventful. I was basically horizontal about 90% of the day, only getting up to stretch my back, make a meal or two, and hit up the potty room.
Around 3:00, I got an intense craving for pancakes. My mama always said, when you’re sick, you should eat whatever you’re craving. I was also craving chicken, but I didn’t take her advice with that craving
Pancakes of choice: Angela’s peanut butter coconut swirl pancakes:
I made a double batch and the husband had some, too. They were delicious!
More resting ensued, and I drifted in and out of sleep to Top Chef reruns, Oprah, and Let’s Make a Deal (that’s still on? what?) and then Shane suggested I remove myself from the bed to go to the basement to watch a movie. That sounded like a lot of energy. To fuel this huge movement of shifting floors, I popped in a frozen Kashi pizza:
I love Kashi pizza’s, but they are notorious for skimping on the toppings. As always, I added my own – red, yellow, orange bell pepper, tomatoes, and goat cheese.
I also sprinkled on some crushed red pepper to really get the sinuses going. Deeelicious.
Movie watching ensued and began to feel better!
The rest of my Thanksgiving agenda includes:
- Gym, coffee with Heidi
- Back home to bake my contributions to Thanksgiving dinner, which include Autumn Puree, Vegan Pumpkin Pie, and Kale Chips
- Do some studying for the ACE test
- Thanksgiving dinner time!
Should round out to by a nice little day:)
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! What are you thankful for today?
