Yesterday my eating was off a bit. I finished off a bag of soy crisps without counting (about 2 servings), had a couple of low carb yogurts, just extra stuff in addition to the usual fare. Then on my way home from errands at dinnertime, suddenly I just knew I was coming down with something. My head started to pound and feel heavy, I started sneezing and felt achy. By the time I got home I was so sick I just stumbled into the bedroom and laid down, telling my teens to serve themselves dinner (mac and cheese in the crock pot and pulled pork to warm in the microwave) and help their sister dish up her plate. I laid in bed while they ate and cleared the table. I managed to get up and get my daughter ready for bed, sip some tea and eat about 2 bites of the pork. The rest of the evening I had awful chills (even though I was in a sweater and the house was 74 degrees). I went to bed early with the electric blanket.
This morning has been a bit rough as well... really tired and a slight cough. I've had about 3 spoonfuls of plain ricotta cheese and some black coffee. I cannot get warm. I think I will go take a nap.
