I had the sniffles and a sore throat for a few days this week so didn’t over-do in the exercise area. I didn’t want to get too run down and be miserable at work on Thursday and Saturday so I kept the runs short and didn’t play tennis at all. But I am feeling very much better today so hopefully the worst is behind me now. I gargled with warm salt water a few times and it seemed to really soothe my throat. Do you do that, too?
A few things from the week…
For years now I have started my day with either lime juice and water, or lemon juice and water, and lately I started putting mixing my Fermented L-Glutamine into it. That way I know I get it every day and there is no taste at all, only a bit of cloudiness.
I had my haircut last Wednesday in a more ‘me’ short style. I had been wearing my hair short in a variety of cuts and colors all the time were living and cruising on our sailboat, and only decided to grow it long again after we moved ashore 2 years ago… but it got a little overwhelming and time-consuming to take care of it. It had to go… and I am pleased with the results. So quick and easy.
It is strawberry season here and I cannot get enough of them! Appie skewers with fresh pineapple, mixed with yogurt, and on my pancakes, too. Are you a fan?
On Tuesday I picked up some Healthy Choice frozen bars at Costco. I know, I know… I should be making my own, and I will… but these called my name from the freezer aisle so I didn’t resist. They are darned good, too. Have you tried them?
I have one little rant today…. why oh why do some people think it is a good idea to tie their dog’s full ‘poop bag’ to their dog’s leash or collar? I think it is just a horrible thing to do to the dog. Great that they pick up… but really, can’t they just carry it a ways till they find a garbage can? Does this irritate you as well?
