Last 2 weeks..

For the past 2 weeks, I got sick, got better, then got worse and then got better. It’s been a roller coaster of sickness in our house. During this time, I didn’t want to sit and write the blog. I just wasn’t in the mood. During days like this, all I want to do is sit and marinate in the couch 🙂 .

It’s been nearly 4 months since my asthma was worse and I forgot how it felt and when I started coughing at night and couldn’t sleep for 3 nights, I got emotional and angry. During these time, I get obsessed about watching a TV show and this time that show was “How I met your Mother”. It’s been 6 days and I am on the Season 8 and I can’t seem to stop it.

I don’t want to go out of the house and I just hate feeling like this. I sometimes force myself to go out until I had to go out. I had so many plans for the blog but for some reason, I have lost that drive to write the articles.

I tried my hands on many things, Zentangles, coloring, drawing, etc. but I lose interest very quickly. I did start changing my diet and I was really good till I got sick. I seriously wanted to eat only unhealthy foods. I tried to control it but with the sickness, I get emotional. So there went my plan to lose weight. I still do some exercise at least 2 times a week but that’s just a blip in calories I eat 😦 .

I still drink the green smoothies and the almond milk smoothies which I love and I had put on the weight I lost during those 3 weeks of good diet. Sometimes I just crave Grilled Cheese Sandwich. I have always known that it will be really difficult for me to control my eating habits because ultimately I cave. I have known for a long time that I am an emotional eater and that is the worst for people who want to lose weight.

So there readers, something about me you now know. If you haven’t see all those food pictures in my Instagram, then you won’t understand 🙂 . I am still not yet over my sickness because it usually get bad the day after my volunteer work in the pet shelter. Hopefully once I am over the sickness, I should hopefully stick to my healthy eating.


Yay, It’s the Month of Sickness

What is it about December that everyone keeps falling sick? I was thinking in the beginning of November that we were lucky not to get sick and lo behold, Anya got sick by 29th of November 🙄 . This was not the 48 hour sickness, this was a full-blown flu with 5 day fever, nose block and chesty cough. We barely slept 4 hours every day and with a cranky preschooler, it was a tough week. And by 3rd of December, hubby and me were getting sick as well. I had a head cold which is basically nose block with dry cough and headache for about 4 days.

It was tough with all of us being sick. I thought I was getting better but by 11th night, I was worse. I had wheezing and dry cough. It had gotten so bad on 12th night that I couldn’t even talk because I was basically wheezing and coughing. I had lost my voice. By this time, I was basically living on hot herbal teas. I have lost my taste buds so I was just eating for the sake of eating. I had to call the doctor but could get appointment only on 15th. So I just barely made it through that day.

On examination, the doctor told me that I have a mild asthma 😦 and she prescribed an inhaler and antibiotics. After just 2 doses of inhaler, I felt much better. Finally after 5 days of antibiotics and inhaler, I slept the night 🙂 . I have to say that it was a tough 3 weeks for me. I didn’t feel like doing anything. I was tired and hungry and definitely wasn’t in a mood to write an article. Finally I am feeling better this week since I am sleeping though the night. I feel as if December just flew by very quickly. It’s almost end of 2014. Does anybody else feel that 2014 went very quickly?

On the other note, I haven’t done any fitness for almost 5 weeks 😦 and I feel really guilty about it. I do force myself to do some fitness at least 2 times a week. And now I have to start again 😥 . Have I told you all that I have started volunteering in a pet shelter 😀 . I will dedicate a whole article for it in the near future. I really love doing it.

Merry Christmas my lovely Readers. Hope you all enjoy your holidays with your family and friends.
