Day 2 of Being Sick McSickerson

I feel so pathetic. I snored myself awake this morning and contemplated what happened to the breathe right strip I was wearing a couple of hours before - I never found it. I vacillated for 20 minutes whether I'd go to work or not. In two years at my job, this marks my first sick day and Catholic guilt still makes me feel bad about it.

Oh well. I endeavored to take a bath and put on fresh pajamas today, so at least I accomplished that. I took an epic nap in which I dreamed of checking out Barbies from the library (?).

Since I haven't worked out today, yesterday or
the day before, I'm trying to be diligent about what I'm eating so that I have enough fuel to heal, but not enough to make my butt expand. It's a delicate balance, especially since all I want to do is eat leftover lactation cookies and stuff from the chocolate party.

I had oatmeal today, a protein muffin, two cookies and a green smoothie. In the blender was 1 cup of baby spinach, four strawberries, 1/2 banana and a splash of orange juice. Maybe I was really craving veggies, but it tasted awesome. For dinner, I'm making it my goal to not eat 10 pounds of chocolate and instead dive into the tomato soup that Tim went and got me last night. What a guy!

Don't feel bad about taking a sick day! You deserve them. I hope you feel better soon.
