Tea Theraflu and cookies Breakfast cookie. Hey, it works.
Sorry I flaked out on ya’ll last night, but I had a supah busy night, and then when I finally got home I started to feel like I was coming down with something. Boooo:( Another flu bug is going around the office, and apparently I was its next victim because I woke up feeling like crapola.
I blame it on the stress I was having last week. This is why we shouldn’t let stress get to us. Good thing that’s one of my New Year’s goals
So even though I woke up in the morning feelin’ like a sicky, I made a yummy breakkie of
tea Theraflu and cookies a breakfast cookie
and made the treck to work, because I don’t have a back up currently.
I ended up leaving around noon, though, and had a craving for an Ezekiel pizza (fourth day in a row, what?!) It was a mad craving and I just had to have one. Being sick always makes me have cravings. Before I left work today I had a snack of cocoa puffs and milk. What the heck?! I digress..
Sadly, I couldn’t fulfill the craving because the ice storm we’re currently having caused the power to go out right as I started to get huuungry! Luckily, we have a gas stove, so I could still make do with a wrap:
Egg white, laughing cow, zucchini, yellow bell pepper, and nutritional yeast deeeliciousness.
With a full belly, I then crashed here until I woke up to Dr. Phil’s voice, got scared, and went back to sleep.
Also did a little reading of this book my mom let me borrow Super Freakonomics:
I finally managed to drag my booty out from the bed to do a little laundry and bathroom cleaning. I think I have a complex – I feel SO lazy when I’m sick that I have to do some kind of productive work even though my body hates it. Hopefully you don’t do the same.
Worn out from the chores, I collapsed again – but this time with a change of scenery from the bedroom to the living room – with the hubski. I didn’t want to cook, and he doesn’t cook anymore, so we decided to order Chinese.
This presented the dilemma that we haven’t ordered Chinese since I’ve become a vegetarian! Now what?!
Enter: Sesame Tofu!
First thought: ew, that looks like chicken.
Second thought: That’s one big honkin’ piece of tufu!
I was leery, and made a small plate:
Then got upset because I wasted $7 on a very sucky meal. Blech! Blech! Blech!
For some reason, though I finished my plate, but didn’t go back for seconds, but instead (again went with what I was craving…)
Brown Rice flour bread and Earth Balance!!! I’ve been craving me some toast a lot lately…
OK, well this post is just turning out to be a post about me and my cravings while ill, so I’ll put you out of your misery and just end it now I don’t write well when I’m sick!
What do you crave when sick? Clearly, I’m a carb-craving maniac!
