Good morning and happy Friday! I can’t believe it’s already the weekend before Christmas. Where does the time go? Unfortunately, I’m a bit under the weather today. (I have some strange aversion to saying that I’m actually sick- so I’m just not feeling great today.) I’ve got a sore throat and I feel pretty tired. This started yesterday afternoon and so I decided to skip my workout last night in order to rest my body. I’m really glad I did because I wasn’t feeling too hot this morning- I think I would feel a lot worse today had I not listened to my body and taken it easy. I drank hot hot tea and loving my body.
Notice my red nails? I intentionally wanted to show them off in the picture to add some pizzazz to my sore throat remedy!
I went straight to bed to relax yesterday evening and my stomach was a little nausea so I skipped dinner. You know I’m not feeling well when I’m not hungry! This morning, I decided to make myself a comfort food for lunch. Mac and Cheese!!
To make macaroni and cheese, I heat up elbow noodles. (Ideally, I’d like to use whole grain but I was given the basic enriched white pasta for free from the fam so that’s what went into the mix.) I then added some almond milk and lots of cheese. No powdered cheese for me!
I’m definitely feeling better as the day goes on. I’m going home to my lovely family for the holidays and that just makes everything better.
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and a happy holiday, whether you’re opening presents under the tree or going to the movies! If anyone else is feeling a little icky, I hope you feel better and stay healthy.
