Not Feeling So Hot...

I actually had a post in my head that I was going to write this morning, but time got away from me and now I am in a little bit of a brain fog so that post might have to wait. Just a few hours ago, I got hit by the PMS monster with a side of nausea. I went to work in my daughter's classroom for a few hours, and by the time I got home I knew something else was going on. Lots of kids from her class (and their parents) are sick right now... something is going around. I have not been sick since I started Medifast in the spring but today I feel suddenly like my body is fighting something off. I am not sick YET, but I have this sudden wave of exhaustion and fog brain going on. I feel like I could go to sleep for the whole day *right now.* One of my friends has the flu so I hope it's not that.

Anyway, I am sipping Bergamot tea and waiting until it's time to pickup my daughter, and then I'll be simmering some fresh kale on the stove in chicken broth with garlic and onions. I think that will make me feel better. If my brain perks up I'll come back and try to say something intelligent :)

Rest and good soup.

Do hope you are feeling better by morning.

I appreciate you writing. You have touched my heart deeply many times.

Blessings.

Lots of water and rest. Blueberries and raspberries have lots of antioxidants, and are relatively low-carb. Red bell peppers have lots of vitamin C and are pretty low-carb too.

Feel better. Vee at http://veegettinghealthy.blogspot.com

I am also trying to fight something off. I hate being sick! I know that I am a small fish compared to you because you have been on this journey longer and have been super successful, but I just wanted to say thanks for the inspiration.

I also wanted to tell you that I gave you the Versatile blogger award. So check out my blog and check it out and see what you can do to pass on the award if you wish! I am not sure if you like awards or not, but your blog posts mean a lot to me, so I wanted to let you know!

Feel better Lyn. I've been feeling pretty crapy myself and I've learned you just gotta listen to your body. Get some rest.

Listen to your body - and you're allowed to take blog breaks when you need to! You're the most important part of your blog. :) And good for you for recognizing the signs of a coming illness.

I've been sick twice now in the last 4 weeks, thank you back to school germs from my 1st grader!

You are doing wonderful, I'm so proud of you. Keep at it girl.

I've been fighting a bug this week too - just not 100%. Get well soon. The simmered kale sounds yummy! You'll have to let me know what exactly you do to cook it.
