Who says I have to eat like a sicko?

Well, I guess I spoke too soon and I’m still a little ill.  I’m still wondering whether or not it could be because I just got a new, stronger contact prescription… but that’s never happened before.  Hmm…

The English Dept. lunch was the best it’s been (the candidate, however, was not): mozzarella, pesto, tomato and lettuce sandwich on ciabatta bread.  I also had a tiny bit of pasta salad, pickles, and three fruit kebabs.


A few hours later I had a Toasted Nuts ‘n Cranberry Luna bar (I went to WF after I’d just eaten a lot of sugar so I wasn’t in the mood for any of my usual sweet bars).  This issue of Runner’s World is about injury prevention… very convenient!


I went to Step today, but it really wasn’t the best idea.  After about 20 minutes I was so dizzy that I had to leave.  I felt really bad about leaving my step in the middle of the floor, but I would have interrupted the whole class had I moved it. Bah.

I had two slices of cinnamon raisin Swirl toast with B&B.


Dinner was a little late today; I stayed in bed in and out of sleep for awhile (and read a lot of magazines, yes).  I’m sorry, but there’s just no way to make this look appetizing: Annie’s Mac & Cheese made with yogurt, a laughing cow light, peas and a can of tuna.

Dessert was two chocolate- covered strawberries (yum! easy! must make these more!).


I LOVED your responses about home remedies:

A+D Original Ointment for dry skin

Vodka for post-shave

Toothpaste for acne

Monistat anti-chafing powder gel for makeup priming

Vaseline for everything! (My mom sent me this link from todays NYTimes… apparently we aren’t the only ones getting a little creative in desperate winter times!)

Conditioner for backup shave gel (Emily, you’re genius! I usually use shampoo.)

I’m really not hungry but am still a little snacky (hmm, maybe that is why I don’t feel good?) so I might have a little something else before I go to sleep.

Greg lent me The Wire, so I’m going to chillax in bed with that.  Have a lovely night!

  5. Oh, I missed the home remedies post. I can’t tell you how many mornings I shave my legs with conditioner. It ain’t pretty. I had a doctor’s appt. Monday that got cancelled, and I was so pissed that I “conditioner shaved” for nothing!
