Well friends, let me first start off with a happy Monday (!!) & a huge “my B” for completely going MIA yesterday
You know that I hate to leave ya’ll hanging but I had some things to tend to around here, and by ‘things’ I mean me having throat issues yet again.
Yep, that would make it 3 times in the past 3-4 months that I have had a case of tonsilitis. Now growing up I was plagued with strep throat all-the-time, but for whatever reason my doctors wouldn’t take my tonsils out. Guess I didn’t have it quite “enough” (wtf).
And it’s been quite some time since I’ve had this many cases in such a short time, so now it’s time to go to the ENT (Ear Nose Throat Doc) and talk about getting these suckers out. You see too, 1 side of my tonsil is quite larger than the others (sorry, tmi) so it tends to “trap” germs, making me much more susceptible to getting this type of sickness.
Valentine’s Day gift? No?
So needless to say when I woke up yesterday morning I headed straight to the doctor – I hate all these antibiotics I have been on and really am ready for this to be all over.
And believe me when I say that I know things could be much worse, so if this is all I’ve been dealt to handle then I am a-okay with that and still feel blessed that I have my health in all other respects!
Which leads me into an interesting thought from The Man today, about how I write a “healthy eating/living blog” but have really been pretty under-the-weather the past few months which is kinda interesting. Valid point boyfriend, valid point
However I definitely do not attribute this to my diet, but instead to my predisposition to this type of illness and the fact that I am going through some sort of phase like when I was younger. Before December, the last time I could remember being sick was back in February of 2009?
And in every other respect – cholesterol, blood pressure, weight, blood sugar, etc - my stats stack up pretty darn perfectly (that’s what the doc says!) which I know is a result of the way I choose to live
So needless to say, my eats yesterday were a bit ummm shall we say, random?
On yesterday’s mixed up menu we have:
- bagel w/ cream cheese
- chocolate ice cream
- Three Sisters cinnamon sweets
- my new fave salad: spring mix, avocado, hard boiled egg white, boiled potatoes (!!)
- ricotta w/ syrup
- oats w/ bananas & the such
Yes friends, I told you that it was a lil’ uhhhh like a preggers lady? “different” I tend to have an aversion to salty foods when I’m sick, I really like cold and sweet stuff for some reason?
Does anyone else experience “taste bud confusion” when feeling under the weather?
So that’s that you fabulous friends, off to make my appointment with the ENT and get some more rest since I am still feeling far from well today. Makes a “normal Monday” feel like a blessing
Have a wonderful day and I’ll see you tonight
