I don’t really have much to say this morning. When I awoke yesterday, I didn’t feel puny exactly, but I didn’t feel quite The Thing, either. Seasons are changing. The temperature fluctuations mean allergies, colds and all kinds of cooties for many of us.
I’m feeling the tiniest bit cootified.
I have not been diligent in taking my multi-vitamins for awhile now; so, I started that again before I went to sleep. (I know you’re supposed to take them when you wake; but, they make me feel nauseated. So, rather than absorbing no nutrients from them when I take them upon waking and I cough them right back up, I get less than optimal – but still more than no – value from them by taking them when I go to sleep.)
I didn’t really feel like making anything for lunch and, in fact, I wasn’t really hungry at all. Regardless, I stopped at the grocery before work and got some bottled juices (I know they’re not “all that” but they have more nutrients than water), and a salad that the store had labeled “super foods.” It had a kale base and was topped with edamame, sliced almonds, blueberries, and dried cranberries. I know that those are touted as being oh-so-much-better than other foods and, while I don’t know if that’s true, I like the idea of eating a salad that could make the cut as a superhero if only it fit into a leotard and cape.
This morning, I’m still not feeling quite The Thing. However, I’m making sure that I eat especially conscientiously right now, drink plenty of fluids and get plenty of rest. That’s really all I can do until the weather settles down and I can get used to the cooler temperatures once and for all.
