i had dinner with my parents last night. i finally tried the veggie smoked sausage from whole foods. i didn’t love it, but it was a nice swap for the grilled bbq sausage i used to eat with my papa.
i watched some jeopardy + big bang theory, ate some mint choc. chip ice cream, and came back to the apartment before the sun went down. i sat down at my computer and started playing with photos to blog… and i started feeling pretty crummy. i won’t get into it. but i think i was coming down with an infection. i started guzzling some water, and i laid down. i played on my phone, i thought about reading, i texted EP and a friend about how awful i felt and how worried that it was getting worse.
so, no blogging last night. but i think i actually may be feeling better. i fell asleep while waiting for my “on-call” doctor to call me back. [she still hasn’t.] but as i woke up off and on, i realized i was sleeping a little, and it never got really bad. all day i’ve been ok. so i’m skeptical, and not great, but i’m still hopeful. and still guzzling my water. i must have gotten in a gallon and a half by now. if i need the antibiotics, i will go to the doctor in a heartbeat to get them. but if i can avoid all the side effects, i’ll do whatever i can!
foods today were basically just whatever i wanted. i photographed *almost* everything i ate, so i’m jumping in for another round of what i ate wednesday [hosted by jenn at peas and crayons].
i tried a new-to-me luna bar – s’mores flavor. i’m not sure if i was just very hungry, or this actually tasted a lot like s’mores. it was delicious.
i felt a little washed out and semi-full because of all the water. i was worried, and i wanted some comfort. i chose cucumber + avocado sushi rolls for lunch. EP and i snuggled up in his car for our lunch, in the parking lot while the rain came down. he also treated me to a frosty from wendy’s. :-)
tonight, i couldn’t think of anything i wanted, and i wasn’t very full. but i figured a little protein couldn’t hurt, so i made the ugliest, creamiest, cheesiest eggs ever.
- 1 egg + 2 whites
- big tbsp light cream cheese
- sprinkle of parmesan cheese
- small handful of 2% cheddar cheese
they were tasty [and i guess not as ugly in retrospect]. i didn’t feel awesome after eating them, but i think it was in my head.
i followed the eggs up with a banana dipped straight into PB2 powder.
i realized i hadn’t really had fruits or vegetables other than what fit inside my sushi rolls. not really worried about it today, though.
i need to sleep LONG tonight. i’m about to curl up as soon as i hit publish. “sweet home alabama” is on in the background; it usually cheers me up. :p all in all, it was a pretty positive day. i thought it was going to be much worse. fingers crossed i still feel ok throughout the night.
