Back to normal... but what's normal?

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

Ok. Yesterday around suppertime my hubby was released to come home. Meanwhile I feel like I am fighting something, with a sore throat. Oh bother. I barely remember yesterday. I made my 5000 plus steps, no idea on much else, but I sat too long at the hospital, I know that. I fell asleep on the couch briefly after supper. Got to bed at midnight, and actually slept 8 and a half hours. Wow. That never happens. Sore throat back today. Even after sinus medicine. Yep. I think I am fighting something. achy. chills. Just what I need.
Hubby is home, feeling ok, head still hurts from shingles. Eating. Taking his meds. resting. I made him a meat loaf with gf eggless ingredients, and it is ground turkey (low fat). I used vegg as the egg substitute, some catsup, some herbs and spices, and gf bread crumbs. Also we split a huge baked potato in two, so it amounted to about two small potatoes.
I am tired. just finished my deskwork for the day, but am so far behind, I have a huge project due Friday. Good thing it is fiction, and an Amish romance, so it will be a fun enjoyable read. Just have to get it done on time, and not get sick.
I did at least 33 minutes of yoga/stretches (pt) this morning, and a quick 10 minutes or so on the wii balance board, and ate a healthy snack this afternoon.
Now, time to go sit on the couch, and aim to go to bed early again tonight.
Normal? Hopefully.

On a super duper positive note - My husband looked at me thoughtfully today and said, I can tell the difference. definitely. Looking at my waist, hips, trimming up below my bustline. That made my day. If only I could find my favorite tape measure.

Have a good night, friends.
I need "normal." No more emergencies. At least for a while. Please.

I need quiet. a quiet night. a snuggly night with a cat on my lap and hubby at my side.
I am blessed.

One step at a time, One day at a time.
Getting healthy is my job. Need to go get some me time, and rest.

    Maybe try gargling with warm salt water for the sore throat. I'm glad DH is home and doing well. Feel better soon!

    When I feel something coming on I make a tea using fresh lemon juice, cinnamon and honey, bring water and cannon to boil add honey and lemon juice. Sip on it slowly. It has worked for me.
