I just dropped my son off at school and I want to go back to bed. I feel tired and my nose is stuffy. I haven’t been feeling well for the past few days and it’s time to acknowledge it and start taking care of myself. Everyone I’ve come in contact with last week was coughing and sneezing, I was bound to catch it at some point. I’ve been drinking my green juice and it has helped, but I still need some extra rest today. I decided to cancel everything that could wait and just take care of the pressing issues. My dog gave me a dirty look as I went back to bed. Her walk will have to wait.
After my rest, I can’t actually sleep during the day, I headed to Whole Foods for some supplies. I may be feeling bad, but I still need to eat well.
I headed for the organic salad bar and loaded up. I was not in the mood to wash greens, but I was in the mood to eat them. I piled my container high with kale, radicchio, romaine, sprouts and a few squares of tofu and some beans. I also picked up a can of vegetarian no chicken soup, a lara bar and a go raw bar. While I was there I picked up dinner for the family so I would not have to think about preparing meals for the rest of the day.
When it was time to eat my salad I just put it on a large plate. It was more food than I thought it was going to be.
It was so delicious, I’m not big on dressings so I ate it in its natural state. After lunch I took my little angel for a walk, she was happy and we were best friends again.
I plan on taking it easy for the rest of the day and until this cold passes. I find it very hard to admit that I’m sick and even harder to take the time to rest. Since I’ve changed my diet I’ve caught less colds and they don’t usually last too long. I’m sure I’ll be back to normal in no time. Until then I plan on enjoying my down time, the work will still be there tomorrow.
