….that about describes my weekend. Friday afternoon I started feeling low on energy, struggled through my workout and felt dismayed as my sore throat from the morning got worse. Sick?
Subsequently, the rest of my weekend was involved a lot of laying low and resting. I felt pretty bad on Saturday but Sunday was a bit better. It’s been a while since I’ve shared some of my foods (they aren’t too exciting and don’t change too often!), but I thought since my weekend was a bit low key it’d be a good time for me to share some eats!
Morning light and black coffee…perfect (and so is the new robe from my mom! #polkadots).
Breakfast – still my favorite and most important meal of the day!
Lunch was a classic green smoothie topped with a bit of granola – my throat couldn’t handle too much and in lieu of just eating ice cream, I thought some veggies would be a better decision. 😉
Dinner for my hard working hubby and I (he’s been busy with school ALL weekend long for his Masters in Public Health Research!) was Tina‘s curried tuna cakes. SO simple and so delicious! We served them up with some sweet potato fries and sliced avocado too.
Un-pictured? A few bites of ice cream (I did give in!), lots of water, some almond butter on graham crackers (I know, I know) and multiple mugs of tea.
My only activity over the weekend was getting a few pull ups in per my pull up program and going for a beautiful, crisp walk on Sunday evening while listening to some great sermons.
Door frames work! Love our old, huge door frames – so much character and great for pull ups too. 😉
I sure underestimate the power of walks. I think I’ve talked myself into thinking it’s really only worth it if I’m running…which I know in my head isn’t true, but experiencing that walk and it’s restorative powers and the fresh air was perfect; there’s no way I could have run with my throat and how sick I was feeling! Ahh…maybe I’ll start walking more!
A weekend or a few days of not being 100% sure makes me grateful for health, movement and life! I’m also thankful I have a home to be sick in to rest in – that, too, is a blessing.
How was your weekend? Fill me in if you left the house, unlike me, to do something fun. 😉 Are you a walker? I know many people are! I love the idea of a post-dinner walk but we never seem to get ourselves out there.
Live well & be well, friends!
