Ok. So usually when you hear of people getting sick you think, “oh they will be just WASTING AWAY!”. Unless “waisting away” means the number on your waistline running away to college and gaining the Freshmen 15, I’m not part of that.
I ducked around the stomach flu at Christmas, I’ve weaved in and out of the Upper Respiratory Flu like a prize boxer. Then I got cocky and went down like Joe Glass against Piston Honda in Mike Tyson’s Punch Out. Ding Ding Ding. Aaand she’s out.
Yup. Out for almost 4 days last week. Now, if you’ve ever met me, you already know that we were all expecting a fat lady to sing and pigs to fly at even the thought of this. I am a workaholic. There, are you happy? I said it. So, for me to take that much time, just because I’m sick, is redunkulous.
So I spent most of last week with my son at daycare, my husband at work and the dog curled up with me on the couch or in bed watching netflix, pinning on Pinterest or both simultaneously. This, mind you, all while suped up on good ol’ Nyquil, mentholatum greased all over my face and tissues all around me.
In the end, I’m still dealing with that lingering stuffy nose, but I’m on the mend. Today was my first workout since my “epidemic”…and…wait for it. It was LEG DAY.
Ah yes Leg Day. The only time it’s perfectly normal to walk like the chicks on trashy reality TV Shoes like Campus PD after a bust. I swear after the first set of Kettlebell Squats, Deadlifts and Sled Pushes, I thought it was all over. But oh no, Benjamin had 3 of these glorious sets in mind for me. The good news? I made it through and sweat my nards off. The Bad news? there is no bad news. I made it through and didn’t barf.
So I enjoyed a sweaty post workout selfie, a Quinoa bar for complex carbs and some Amazing Rosemary Mint water.
One of the things I’ve been doing lately is jazzing up my water. My newest obsession is kinda different, but i really like it. It’s Rosemary Mint Water. It’s really refreshing and some of the benefits of Rosemary are pretty awesome!
- Rich source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds
- Improving digestion
- Enhancing memory and concentration
- Neurological protection
- Prevent brain aging
- Protection against macular degeneration
Come to find out that Rosemary is actual a member of the MINT Family..no wonder they rock together…I mean people have been putting MINT Jelly on their Rosemary Lamb for years…why not just drink it…minus the lamb…and the jelly. Ps..when they say aids digestion. That’s not a suggestion. just sayin.
