I think I have the flu But I had a flu shot, darnit!! It’s rampant around Winthrop these days, and I’m all achy and chilly. I took Advil as soon as I got up this morning so I think that helped keep my symptoms down, but as soon as I got to class – bam! It didn’t help that our Medical Terminology quiz sucked She tested us on things that we thought we weren’t responsible for. I hate it when that happens! I just hope that because I had a flu shot this goes away quickly.
I had a hard time eating lunch – I have no appetite today, which is no fun because it was a good lunch. I couldn’t even eat my carrots - the thought of them made me gag. But my sandwich was good thanks to the delicious bread (The photos are dark because my lounge had a power outage right when I arrived!)
Turkey, avocado, chipotle cheese, jalapeño on oat/flax/walnut bread -
Grapefruit - this is exactly what I was craving. It was the best grapefruit I’ve had all winter!
And Fage with sliced almonds. I can never remember to have this combo, but I finally did yesterday and boy was it good!
I also found 2 dates in my backpack that I had for dessert. They remind me of roaches = ewww! But they sure taste great!
All together (minus dates plus uneaten carrots)
And my new Sigg water bottle. Before I went back to school I drank out of a cup at my desk all day (washable one) but these past few weeks I was just refilling a Dasani bottle, which was just gross and I still had to purchase/drink the bottle to begin with. I hate Nalgene bottles (they smell) but I’ve heard that these aluminum bottles are great, so I’m giving it a try. I find the lip to be kind of thick, but I like it overall. I opted for the smaller one to fill up more frequently so I don’t have too much more weight on my shoulders.
Still no appetite by 4:00 but I could tell I was low on fuel so I thought:
“If I could have anything in the world right now what would it be?”
Thought # 1: Coldstone’s cake batter ice cream with crushed Oreo. But who wants to go driving right now and plus, I’d be cold!
Thought # 2: Kashi crackers. I always have an appetite for these! But what to have with them?
Thought # 3: Oatmeal!!!!!!!!!!!! I knew exactly that’s what I wanted most so I made a half portion on the stove top with skim milk and flax and had a spoonful of almond butter to go along. Perfect!
Along with a cup of peppermint tea -
Hopefully my Advil will kick in soon. I have Chemistry to do but we might go for a walk because it’s so nice outside. Tonight we’re making chili, but I might just use my sickness as an excuse to have dinner made for me while I lounge on the couch
