It was fun to hear y’all talk about your Zumba thoughts/experiences in response to yesterday’s post! In all honesty, I have to say that I am 100% certain I look completely ridiculous in the class, but it’s fun to get out there and shake my booty! I always try to stand behind someone who at least looks like they know what they’re doing (and it’s generally fairly evident who those people are, at least in my class). I’ve found it’s easier for me to watch them rather than my instructor since she faces us, so it often confuses me, directionally. Even though I look pretty silly doing the class, it’s a great workout and I’m really hoping to get back in the habit of going!
Last night, my plan was to get up and go to yoga before work. Then, the sore throat started. By the time I went to bed (at a whopping 9:30) I could barely talk, so I chugged some Emergen-C and decided to get as much sleep as I could, going to bed early and sleeping a bit extra.
Since I had planned on going right to work from yoga, I threw together some overnight oats with almond milk, rolled oats, chia seeds, a bit of canned pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice (yes, I finally remembered after forgetting not once, but twice last week!).
Washed down with another dose of Emergen-C! I will not get sick, I will not get sick, I will not get sick.
I plan on drinking it religiously for the next couple of days.
My planned pad thai really didn’t sound all that appetizing with not feeling well (spicy food + sore throat = bad idea), so I opted for the next best thing: soup!
Not quite mom’s chicken noodle, but then again, my mom never made chicken noodle soup (that I remember), nor could I actually eat it anymore, because, let’s be real, without the chicken, it’s just noodle soup and that doesn’t seem so special.
And, for a bit of Christmas cheer, flash-mob style:
What are your go to methods for fighting off colds/illness?
