…is how I feel right about now. Which makes me really sad, because I almost never get sick. Second week of classes? My head feels like it is going to explode, stupid sinus pressure.
Back to the point – I had no idea what to blog about yesterday. I really wanted to post, but nothing came to mind! My eats have been rushed because of classes and things, so nothing interesting there. I could have posted about my workouts, but I still didn’t have any interesting photos or tips or routines to share. Although I created this site mainly for myself, it’s not always fun to post something I could have easily written in my little notebook and be perfectly content with.
This brings me to the topic of tonight’s post – how I’m trying to keep myself as healthy as I can, to get through the ‘blah-ness’ of this silly head cold.
1. Tea. Love my steamy tea!
2. Water. I’ve already lost count of how many millions of bottles and glasses I’ve had today. It really is nature’s energy boost!
I have not been hungry today – which is really weird. Actually, let me rephrase that: I have had no cravings today. I’m pretty sure the hunger is still there, but I have had no idea what I wanted to eat all day. In cases like this, I try to force myself away from comfort foods and stick to those high in nutritional value.
Açai is lower in sugar, and high in vitamin C (for immunity), among other things.
In the mix: blueberries – because they taste good and are also lower in sugar and nutrient-rich, maca – hormone regulator (I’m just giving this one a try for a while to see how I feel), lucuma – extra low-sugar sweetness, coconut water – electrolytes! It was quite delicious, not too sweet but just the way I like it.
yup, super-nutritious. I’m trying my best to stay energized with low-sugar plant foods.
4. Hot ‘n Spicy warm meals.
This is what I’m holding in that picture at the beginning of this post. A simple stew make with farmer’s market eggplant, chickpeas, organic canned tomatoes, and some extras (oil, herbs, spices). It somehow ended up being vegan. I’d post a recipe, but I kind of forgot to write anything down.
5. Indulge a little.
Caught up with being physically ill, I almost always lose track of mental health. Positive self-talk, taking an unplanned active rest day away from the gym, and chocolate of course – to soothe the soul 😛
What are some things you do to keep your body in top shape when you’re under-the-weather?
