Booooo. I’m a sickypants now. All stuffed up and everything….this better not become a sinus infection like every cold I’ve had in the last three years!

Yesterday went fairly well, but not as planned…of course! I didn’t eat the planned fruit throughout the day, and ended up with a tiny dish of leftover rice and chop suey as my tide-over meal. I forgot to put the Emergen-C in my water too. Not that it would have made me feel better but I’ve had this sample for ages and keep meaning to try it.

Dinner was soooo yummy! FH couldn’t decide between the scallops n bacon and the crab bisque for his appy, so we ordered both and shared…not the salad I had planned but it’s just not salad weather!! I opted for the surf and turf for dinner because the restaurant was offering a freaking awesome deal on the lobster…almost half price at $17.95 for a 1.25 pound lobster. How can we pass that up?! I ordered mine with the 6oz filet and it comes with a scoop of mashed potatoes and some green beans. Topped this all off with some Shiraz and it was a decadent meal. 🙂 After dinner we went for a few cocktails at our favorite bar…I stuck with two vodka sodas as I didn’t feel the need for anything heavier than that after our lovely meal.

Today I was supposed to try hot yoga with the girls, but this cold has taken a serious hold on my head so I opted to go with the other invitation I had to enjoy brunch with some other girlfriends. I figured sniffling my way through a yoga class with other people trying to be healthy would be poor form. Instead I loaded up on Tylenol Cold Daytime and enjoyed a warm bistro where I had a yummy latte and the brioche french toast with lots of fresh fruit. and water…lots of water.

Now it’s snowing….boooo 10 more cm on it’s way so I’m huddled into the house for the rest of the afternoon. I’m thinking about what to make for dinner and if I had the ingredients on hand I’d be throwing together a pot of chili because it’s that kind of day. I don’t feel like going out to the store in this weather though so I’m going to dig through the fridge and cupboards and figure something out. It’s going to be warm and tasty though!! FH leaves for sea tomorrow so I go back to worrying about fruit and healthy eats after I drop him off…
