Please forgive me if this post sucks… A surprise cold popped up yesterday evening (boo) and it’s giving me a bit of mushy brain. I’ve also been working non-stop since 7am (from
bed home) trying to get a bunch of stuff done for work, so that may be contributing also.
Winnie loves it when I work from home.
I usually get a cold twice a year, around the time of change in seasons. I actually missed my spring cold this year (no complaints here!), but my fall cold seems to have set in a bit early.
Thankfully, that is really the only time ever get sick. I rarely get headaches, and I haven’t had the flu since Grade 7, so…I can deal with a little cold a couple times a year. No biggie. I’ve been drinking lots of OJ and water, and taking my vitamins, so hopefully I am back in tip-top shape tomorrow! I even plan on making it to Body Pump tonight. Maybe I can pump this silly cold right out of me…
You know how some people lose their appetite when they’re sick?
Well, not me. I have never been one of those people.
Andy-pop came home for lunch today, and he brought me this monstrosity from a deli near his work:
Holy ham! I don’t think I have ever seen so much ham on a sandwich! This thing was HUGE.
I had some troubs getting the entire thing in my mouth, but in the end I ate it all up. It was pretty darn tasty.
I didn’t skimp on breakfast either, but I didn’t want anything too heavy since I wasn’t feeling the greatest. I also wanted a nutrient-packed breakfast to hopefully speed up the healing process. A green monster sounded perfect.
My smoothie included:
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 large handfuls spinach
- 1.25 cups almond milk
- 1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)
- pinch xanthan gum (optional, to thicken)
Yummers in my tummers.
A couple of weeks ago I discovered Pinterest, which is a virtual pinboard that lets you share photos of interesting/funny/beautiful things you find around the internet. Then you can browse around other peoples’ pinboards and get inspiration, or repin them onto your own boards.
It would be perfect if you are planning a wedding, or decorating a new house.
At first I thought it was just another social networking site to keep up with…but I spent a couple hours on it yesterday, and it’s kind of awesome. I am always seeing things I like around the web and sometimes I bookmark them, but mostly I forget about them.
I think Pinterest is going to be especially helpful for me for work, because I do a lot of posters and graphic design and I am constantly looking for inspiration. I regularly troll the internet and bookmark posters that I like, but with Pinterest it’s pretty awesome that I can just pin them all into one spot and they’ll always be there.
Same with recipes. Sometimes I will find a really good one that I want to try, and then totally forget where I saw it. No more!
If you guys have Pinterest, feel free to follow me!
I leave you with a quote that I found and repinned from someone else:
“I’ve got two daughters who will have to make their way in this skinny-obsessed world, and it worries me, because I don’t want them to be empty-headed, self-obsessed, emaciated clones; I’d rather they were independent, interesting, idealistic, kind, opinionated, original, funny – a thousand things, before ‘thin’. And frankly, I’d rather they didn’t give a gust of stinking chihuahua flatulence whether the woman standing next to them has fleshier knees than they do. Let my girls be Hermiones, rather than Pansy Parkinsons. Let them never be Stupid Girls.” – J.K. Rowling
I love it.
Have a great evening!
