Sicky No More

September 14, 2010

I think I have gone through about four boxes of tissues but I am finally starting to feel better.  Thank goodness!  I still have a lingering cough but other than that I feel much better!  Thanks for all your well wishes, kids!

I had planned on getting up early and doing an easy yoga workout to get back into the swing of things but, unfortunately, I didn’t sleep well last night.  I think it was because I didn’t follow my usual bedtime routine.  Usually before I go to sleep, I lie in bed and read for a little while.  I did not read before bed last night and laid there awake for what felt like the longest time.  Once I gave up on trying to force sleep and (despite the time) turned on the light and read some, I had a much easier time falling asleep.  Routine definitely works for me when it comes to going to sleep! I guess reading just quiets my mind.

So instead of getting up early, I decided to catch up on some of that sleep I missed since I am recovering from being sick.  I definitely don’t want to set myself back and draw this cold out!  No yoga this morning.  😦  That kind of makes me a little sad… But I am going to try and fit in a strength workout this evening and I will definitely spend some time doing some good stretching, so I can throw some yoga poses in there!

You know what’s funny?  I haven’t done any kind of a workout in 9 days, yet my left knee is bothering me more today than it ever did when I was running or doing joint stressing cardio/strength training. How silly is that?  I think it misses all the stretching I do when I am more active!

And tomorrow?  Running group!  I am so glad I am feeling well enough to go this week!

I had a yummy breakfast this morning of vanilla yogurt and oats with an apple.  It was a grab and go kind of morning because I was running late!  Why was I running late?  Because I was busy throwing dinner into the crockpot!  A roast with potatoes and carrots!

Yum!  That is one of my favorite meals!  Nothing better than a roast with carrots and potatoes slow cooked in all the juices.  Delicious!  It’s a good food day!


Do you have a bedtime routine?

What is your favorite meal?

    My bedtime routine consists of turning off the tv and computer, getting up to bed and reading for 30 minutes. It helps to quiet my mind and “prepare” for sleeping. Then I brush my teeth, wash my face, etc. The blinds have to be closed because I prefer total darkness!

    I’m glad you are feeling better, and yes, when I don’t workout for a few days I feel more sore also — my body needs the movement!

      We have a very similar routine except that I brush my teeth and wash my face before reading. I want to be able to put down the book, turn off the light and roll over. I don’t want to have to get up again. Haha.

      Oh and I prefer total darkness too!

    glad to hear you’re feeling better!!!!

    the only bedtime routine I have is brush my teeth, wash my face, pee and hit the pillow! 😉 I’m usually exhausted by bed-time (10pm) and tend to fall asleep pretty instantly. I would like to read in bed, but when I try, I only ever get about 1 paragraph read before my eyes close on me.
