Right now, I don’t feel like I’m winning. In fact, I feel like I’ve lost. I’m on day 10 of the flu, and I’m slowly feeling better, but my body is still screaming at me. And I’m finally listening.
I don’t take breaks easily, and I don’t say ‘no’ very well. If I have a day off, I spend it learning or reading or workshopping or training. I don’t ever take it in bed, or on the couch, and the idea of spending an entire day watching movies or television seems like an incredibly painful way to spend my time.
However, my body has spoken, and I’m finally listening.
Take a break.
This flu has left me sleeping a lot, and dreaming a lot, and doing not much else. I’ve tried to read, but I don’t last long, and as I said before, I just don’t like the speaking/talking/noisy forms of entertainment, so television is out.
I’ve worked when I have had to, and otherwise, I’m resting, and drinking tea, and eating ice cream from So Delicious. Which is so delicious, but it’s also making me want to up my homemade ice cream game. Nothing wrong with banana soft serve, but I want to step it up.
I haven’t made any new foods in at least 2 weeks, and I’m craving a day back in the kitchen. For now, I’m able to stand for about 20 minutes without getting totally dizzy, so this black bean dip has been my go-to. It is perfect for any get-togethers you have planned, and it’s delicious with chips or on tacos. We can’t get enough of it. I hope you enjoy.
To your health,
