So it seems I’ve caught a cold on the weekend. Last night I felt so poorly that I decided to call in sick at work today.
The problem is, whenever I’m sick, my cravings are out of control and my willpower is at zero. So I totally busted my No Sweets Challenge. After only three days! We had some guests over, so we made some apple pie and stocked up on chocolate. I ate a lot of both.
Oh well. Despite this major slip-up, I will continue with my challenge. Today I did much better! No pie, no chocolate, just lots of fruit and smoothies. Yeah!
Due to my current condition, I haven’t worked out in the past few days. I guess I’ll take a few more rest days, just to be sure. But I can’t wait to be fit and sweating again.
What are your favorite natural remedies for the common cold?
I try to sleep a lot, drink lots of hot lemon water and tea, and do some camomile inhalations.
