UGH I’ve been sick for two days now. BOO!
This cold just came out of no where. On Sunday I was suddenly really thirsty. Couldn’t make it go away no matter how much water I drank. I think when that happens you know you’re done for.
D. has been super awesome. He brought me vegetarian pho from Saigon Cafe last night and some chips today to snack on. He’s been checking in on me but not too much cuz he knows I like to be alone when I sick!
So this is what I’ve been doing to take care of myself:
- Stay in bed – do NOT do anything. This includes no working out, no teaching yoga, no housework (schucks), no cooking, no walking the dogs, nothing, nada. I started this the moment I realized I was getting a cold.
- Drink lots of liquids - water, peach iced tea, Gypsy Cold Care tea, and Ginger Honey Crystals. I really love the Ginger Honey Crystals but at 70 calories per cup I limit it to one or two cups a day.
- Sleep as much as possible. My sleep patterns are a little off so I’m just taking sleep when I can get it.
- Eat lots of fruits and veggies. I made a huge fruit salad (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, mango, kiwi, almonds, coconut) and I’ve been eating the Bean and Veggie salad I made on Sunday. I’ve also been munching on grapes – little compact thirst quenchers!
Do you have any super cold remedies that I should try?
