I started yesterday off really well, but by lunch time was incredibly sick and was sent home from work. I had trouble keeping food down, so it kind of derailed my diet and exercise plans!
I loved my smoothie the day before, so just tinkered with it slightly by adding an extra strawberry or two (they’re so cheap at the moment – though very small!) and a tbsp of flaxseeds. It was a fantastic start to the day!
I didn’t buy a coffee and things were going swimmingly until the ‘bug’ hit – possibly my first work acquired sickness, though of course I could have picked it up on the morning train. My work (a hospital) is very pro-active with hand hygiene promotion and I’m constantly using the hand sanitizer they provide, but naturally some things do get passed on… oh well! I was sent home by my lovely boss and spent the rest of the day getting sympathy from my labrador!
I managed to get some lunch down by late afternoon (same salad as the day before, plus some ice cream… my go-to food when I’m feeling sick, unfortunately!) but they didn’t stay ‘down’ for too long… sorry for the over share! By nighttime I was feeling a lot better and chanced some dinner (same dinner as the night before – steamed veg on wholegrain pasta) but that was also a mistake… doh!
I’m happy to report that I woke up feeling nearly 100% better… yay! Am going to leave it a little while before I eat though 😉
I came across this quote on Pinterest and it struck a cord – I’m guilty of having a goal (wish) and just expecting it to happen… I need to put in the hard yards first!
I also liked this one… it’s very true!

Have a lovely weekend everyone – Queensland has just started to properly heat up, so I’ m enjoying the hot, sticky weather (knowing that this is ‘nothing’ and it will get a heck of a lot hotter and stickier once summer hits!).
