Feeling Human Again

on December 5, 2012

So, I think I have finally turned the corner and am feeling like my old self again.

After a very rough night not getting much sleep – I just couldn’t sleep, plus my son was having a bad night too – I stayed home from work, my son stayed home from school, and we both slept for most of the morning.  When I finally woke up, I actually felt better. Thank God…I’m not sure how much more of that I could take.

My lunch was not the healthiest – toasted whole wheat bagel with Nutella – but it sure was good!  And I didn’t feel sick after eating it!  I made up for it at dinner with a Clean Eating Buffalo Chicken Salad – click here for the recipe.  This got me a bit caught up with my Elf For Health challenges, as I ate the rainbow, got in some good fibre with all the veggies, and made the dressing for the salad.  It was delicious and got a thumbs up from my little guy.

I also completed my “share a healthy snack” challenge.  It was supposed to be shared with a co-worker, but since I didn’t go to work today, instead, I convinced hubby to have a healthy snack with me tonight while we watched TV.

Although I’m feeling better, I didn’t push it with a workout tonight.  I think I will jump back on the workout wagon on Friday.  If I can squeeze a workout in tomorrow, I will, but not sure I will have time.  We’ve got a “Holiday Happening” down at my son’s school, so we’ll be out tomorrow night and getting home late.  I’m hoping I’m back in time to go to my hockey game at 9:30, but I’m not holding my breath.

Oh well…I’m not going to stress about that.  I’m just happy I can eat again!

What’s your favourite healthy snack?

    Glad you are feeling better!


  2. Your salad looked delicious. It’s tough when you’re feeling sick to do “everything you’re supposed to”! Hope you’re feeling better and have a great day!

      I absolutely love, and I mean LOVE, Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches, so when I found this recipe (and it was Clean) I knew it was for me.
      We had lots left, which means leftovers for lunch today …YAY!!!

      Have a great day too! Cheers!
