WIAW: Trying to cure my cold


HAPPY Hump day. In 2 days I will be vacationing in sunny Florida! I don’t mean to rub it in, but its been a while since we went away and I couldn’t be more excited, It couldn’t have come at a better time!


I am linking up with Jenn for another WIAW post to share my food journal with you from yesterday!

As always I strived to eat clean & healthy but yesterday I was home sick, so I made a conscious effort to load up on nutritious foods.

I went to the doctor on Monday evening because I had been coughing up a storm and I lost most of my voice. At first the Doctor told me there wasn’t much I could do and it could be the flu but he said if  I do start producing colored mucus (gross) then its an infection and to start taking the amoxicillin. Sure enough I woke up yesterday with colored phlegm and I could barely talk. I had no choice but to start my morning off with antibiotics and some tea with lemon! 

I went back and forth about taking the ammoxicilin. If it’s an infection I need it but for some reason I was hesitant. Lets just say I’m glad I took it.

Marc was so kind and made me breakfast, 2 eggs, spinach & toast. It was delicious. I also had some cantaloupe with Ava.


About 930/10am I was really craving a cold smoothie for my second breakfast! So I whipped up a Chocolate Shakeology with 1 tbsp pb2, 1/2 banana & spinach. I was in heaven and it made my throat feel so good.


As fatigued and tired as I was, I managed to throw together a big salad. I had Grilled Herbed Chicken over rommaine with tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, celery, avocado, plus olive oil & balsamic dressing. We have so much food in our fridge that needs to get eaten before our trip and I wasn’t about to waste any of it.


Clearly I only wanted cold food yesterday! My afternoon snack was greek yogurt with 1/2 cup berries & some granola. I needed probiotics to take with my amoxicillin.


Before Boot Camp I took the easy road once again, I opened the fridge and Marc had grilled BBQ Chicken the other night so I steamed up some broccoli and baked some sweet potatoes and bam, that’s our dinner!


I was so thankful I had Marc to help me out yesterday. He taught my boot camp class for me since my voice was non-exisitant. Even though I didn’t workout in class I still wanted some fuel. I had a Chocolate Quest bar and some strawberries/grapes. I haven’t had a Quest bar in a while and I thoroughly enjoyed every bite!


What’s something yummy you ate yesterday? 

Do you ever have days where you just want cold foods?
