Sick day

Ugh i woke up just before 3am and was running to the bathroom. I’ll spare you the gruesome details but safe to say i stayed home sick today.

I made one trip out of the house to a safeway down the street to get some chow mein and replace my roommates ice cream that i finished off. The entire 20 min trip left me with a blinding headache and the desire to vomit regardless of the anti-nausea pills and ibuprofen i took.

I am lucky enough to have some anti-nausea pills left from being sick over winter.

Ok 5 second rant. Do you feel guilty when you take a sick day? Heaven forbid you take more than one?

I hate that i live in a society that makes me feel guilty for taking a day or two off to take care of myself. Or maybe its not society, maybe its just me who feels guilty, in which case i need to work on that. Its hard to take the time to rest and recuperate when you are worried about your job and feel bad.

Do you feel the same or am i crazy?

Weekend Wrap up

The first weekend of April 2016 has come to an end.
I worked both days at the tulip farm

So beautiful but soooo exhausting! It was so crazy this weekend. And i am definitely fighting something off. I feel on the verge of puking almost all the time and have headaches. I am upping all my vitamins and have some anti-nausea stuff left from winter so i am going to take that before bed.

I had my stuff with me so i managed to get in a little swim workout after my shift at the festival

And now i will be passing out.
Goodnight.

Blue Apron

Well this was supposed to post on Thursday but i guess it didnt lol.

Hiii!! I hope you are all well this Thursday.

I overslept for the 2nd time this week. I missed spin class so the goal is to wake up early tomorrow amd spin and swim. No spin class so ill bring headphones and rockout to Pandora lol
I don’t know if i just need more sleep (which would be difficult to accomplish with my schedule) or if I’m fighting something off.

I am really proud, 3 out of the 4 weekdays so far i have taken Artemis out for a walk that is a record high for us and i plan to continue it.

Now for my Blue Apron meal

Boiling my beet. Then I read the directions and realized i was supposed to slice it so i sliced it then continued cooking it hahahahah.

I deviated from thd recipe and added some honey. I have a million, almost literally, from my trail prep.

Technically the fish was supposed to be on top when plating but this is in tupperware for lunch tomorrow so it ended up on the bottom lol.

Have you tried Blue Apron yet?

Random Saturday stuff

It is 7:45pm and i am exhausted. I am sitting in my room tearing up while watching the wedding in Breaking Dawn part 1. Don’t judge lol. Exhaustion makes people more emotional. I’ve always loved the wedding in this movie and ibwas watching Charlie walk Bella down the isle him totally tearing up and i just got that sad I’ll never have that moment. For those that don’t know my dad died almost 8 years ago some days it still hurts like it was yesterday.

Ok enough with the depressing.

Another 7+ hour day working at the tulip farm. It was a beautiful day so the festival was PACKED. Today was the busiest day they have had in the 32ish years they have been doing this.

image

My trying to take the  picture and smile while squinting in the sun and not run into anyone.
As soon as i got home i changed into workout clothes because if i sit down i am not getting back up.

image

Artemis and i got out and ran 2.5 miles in the beautiful day.

image

My right foot really hates it when i stand on it for 7+ hours then run over 1.5 miles on it.

image

Yay!!!!! My peas and corn are starting to sprout!! Not much action from the onions and potatos yet though. Fingers crossed.

image

Easiest healthy dinner. You saute whatever veggies you have in the fridge then pour some bottled pasta sauce over it.

image

Add a little basil and cheese and shovel in mouth because you are starving and starting to crash.

image

Then pass out from exhaustion.

How was your Saturday?
Good night.

TGIF and blue apron

Happy Friday!!!!

It was a long crazy day at work.

image

image

Yep chips and soda, thats the kind of day it was at work. I definitely think i am fighting something off. I woke up in the middle of the night last nighy very nauseas and feeling like crap and i had a headache all day that ibuprofen is barely denting. I have also had that slight pink to my cheeks that accompanies a fever. Uh oh.

In a happier note i made my 2nd blue apron dish of this week and it is SUPER delicious!

Then i added a little extra cheese and a smidge of red sauce

This dish is awesome and is most definitely a recipe i will be holding on to.  And now I am going to pass out because i work tomorrow and i am already exhausted.
