Slept: 7 hours
Yesterday my throat started hurting. It got worse and worse until by around 8:00 I didn’t want to speak more loudly than I whisper. I can’t afford to fully get sick and miss out on work, so I decided to sleep more and not out additional strain on my body from working out.
In addition to not working out, I took some supplements to hopefully boost my immunity and prevent the hammer form coming down on me.
- I took oregano oil
- Elderberry syrup
- Boiron Oscillococcinum
- I gargled with hydrogen peroxide both last night and today.
- I forgot about gargling with salt. Darn.
I don’t think I will be as hungry today, but I also want to make sure I have enough energy to fight this off. I will definitely be napping today during my breaks, but I am not sure what to do about food. I should probably just be safe and eat when I am hungry, eat a small portion and space out my eating. I don’t know if it is true that it takes 20 minutes after you are full for your brain to get the signal, but I know I eat too much at one sitting and that is something I would like to change.
The oregano oil wrecked my mouth! I can barely taste anything. ¡Qué triste!
Red Cabbage Salad with Kielbasa.
Had coffee in the morning to soothe my throat and because I was so tired.
A spoonful of almond butter
I forgot to snap a picture of dinner.
I had 2 drumsticks, a bowl of cauliflower “rice” and some yellow squash. The faux rice is a pass for me personally, I’d rather just have cauliflower. I actually love most if not all of the brassicas I’ve had.
I also had an apple with peanut butter and two little squares of chocolate. I know, not paleo; I am a flawed man.
