Not quite out of the woods yet. This cold continues to sap my energy and enthusiasm. It’s been seven days and it’s not finished yet.
Which means the diet is still on hold.
Ginger green tea and honey. I’m clinging to that like a lifeboat. It’s healthy and tasty! Sure it doesn’t have that zing that a nice coffee does and it doesn’t have the same “ahhhh” factor as a refreshing cup of black tea.
But as far as the diet goes, it’s all I’m doing at the moment.
My appetite is 99% back to normal, it’s just that I’m needing those little treats of biscuits and the odd mouthful of chocolate to see this cold off.
Well, it’s nearly all unhealthy stuff. My appetite is back, so it’s lots of little goodies to tempt my taste buds. Not all of it is unhealthy, but I’d be lying if I said it was all whole grain, fat free food.
As I start to come out of the worst cold I’ve had in years, I feel the need for chocolate and white bread! Funnily enough I’m not craving crisps, my biggest weakness, as much as I thought I would.
Green tea and honey have been a new discovery for me in the past few days. I just can’t stomach normal tea or coffee.
But I am looking forward to that first coffee!!!!!
Having spoken to a few people it seems there is a virus-type-thing which has swept across this part of the world. It affects everyone a bit differently.
Insanely evil headache, general non-specific aches and pains, loss of appetite, fever, cough, headache (oh, I already said that), stomach ache, tiredness…
You get the picture.
I’ve suffered from a bad back for years and just for the hell of it, the sciatica has flared up big time. Excruciating pain all across and through my right thigh, down to my knee. If I lay still or sit down for any length of time it feels like my leg is on fire.
So that’ll be me not sleeping then.
Sorry this blog is coming across as very self-pitying. But that’s how I’m feeling, and it’s all about those happy fats… I just need to find them again.
