I have a cold. It isn't too bad, but I feel so exhausted and I am freezing all day. I haven't been exercising either. I do feel about it, but I did so good with my workouts. I am just glad that I have a dog that needs to be walked twice a day.
I guess I am not really the happiest person when not feeling good-I'm kinda grumpy. So please excuse me from bitching around LOL. I got tired of drinking plain water. I don't really mind the water, but once in a while I just need another taste. So I had some green tea, but it also got boring fast. Then I remembered an article I once read and I looked for it online. The article was about fastening. I am definitely not a fastening person, but the author wrote about making your own lemonade you will have to drink for like ten days. It didn't sound bad at all, so I thought why not making this lemonade.
You need to mixabout 10 oz of water (the first time I took normal water, but the seconding time I chose carbonated water), 2 tbs lemon juice, 2tsp marple syrup and a dash of cayenne pepper. As just mentioned I use carbonated water now because it tastes more like real lemonade that way. I still eat 'normal' and try to reach my calorie range each day, but I also read in this article that the lemon juice and the cayenne pepper helps to boosts the metabolism. Not sure if its true or not, but we will see if it helps. I definitely get some extra vitamine c which can't be that bad with my cold.
