Still Sick

I'm not stepping on the scale today, because I think it would do me more harm than good (i.e. put me in a bad frame of mind). I am still sick, recovering from some kind of flu/sinus infection combination and feeling rather rough. I'll do the weigh in next Sunday instead.

I am super tired and headachey. I've been eating more comforting Medifast meals: hot cocoa, chicken & wild rice soup (made with homemade chicken stock instead of water), cranberry mango drink (kind of tastes like juice to me). I also am allowing myself some fresh fruit, which is *not* on plan, but I feel like my body needs some extra nutrients right now. A few strawberries and a Clementine have improved my disposition. I'm also drinking tea and some coffee with sugar free creamer.

If I didn't have a Kindergartner and a puppy, I think I would sleep all day. That's how I feel right now. But instead, I spent the morning sitting in a chair in the (sunny but cold) yard watching them play together. That was nice. Keeping them entertained NOW is more difficult as I am soooo tired. I will do a bit of pup training and give my daughter some new glitter glue and stickers so she can do art. A movie is probably in her future as well, and the pup will be getting some kibble in a Treat Ball to keep her busy.

No school tomorrow, either, so no real rest in sight for me. Although a nice, long, hot bath this evening would be nice, after the little one is in bed and pup is napping in her crate. Hoping I get over this sickness soon!
