Trying to be healthy while you have the flu

Saturday, December 28, 2013


Yeah, my knees just started feeling better and now I have the flu. This is the way it always is with me, I can never catch a break.

I'm still sorta hungry is the fun thing. Luckily I made some split pea soup in the pressure cooker a day ago so I have those leftovers. I might make myself cook up some chicken soup in the pc today if I have the energy.

Ginger ale has calories. I don't like to drink calories.

Very frustrated because I really wanted to get back into the swing of things!

    Ginger tea is a stock item in my pantry. No cal, and it really does settle tummy upsets. emoticon

    I understand your frustration .... you know what the good news is? You're here talking about the struggles you're having & so receiving support. I'm sure in a couple of days you'll be fine & then pick up where you left off.

    It's not a race to the finish; it's a journey!

    That's a great idea! I had just minced some fresh ginger and swallowed... I like your idea better! LOL

    emoticon I so feel for you . Since you don't want the ginger ale, make some ginger tea. even better for you since it is fresh and the ginger acts as a detox for the body. get hubby to get you a piece chopped it up and add water and boil it to the strength you like. you can add a bit of honey if t needs a bit of sweetenin

    Ah when I asked DH to get ginger ale, I forgot to mention diet. I will definitely remind him next time! I hope you feel better soon too!

    Oh, that just sucks. I feel you, I, too, have been under the weather for more than two weeks, for one reason or another. No flu, at least -- mine is just a nasty head cold. Tough to breathe, but I don't feel like death.

    I hope you feel much better, very soon.

    Do you do diet soda? I think the ginger ale is pretty good if you get the Schwepps brand.
