Sick and Stir Crazy

I am going stir crazy from being cooped up in the house sick. Like, okay, sometimes when you get a little run down and take a little TLC down time and it feels good and let’s you get back to new in no time.

Well, I’m talking the hacking, coughing, sneezing, headachy, clogged ears, sore throat, oh perfect timing because I have a zillion things to do kind of down. Ick. I got up yesterday and started doing stuff in my kitchen and had to lay back down almost instantly because it just was, as pop culture says, “too soon”. Anyhow, I’m trying not to whine too much and appreciate having something that will pass and focus on resting now to get better ASAP.

I took a small walk outside today and that was hard but good. Hard because I haven’t been keeping up with my usual routine; I typically walk 3 miles at minimum a day and have now missed a chunk of time off between having a little bug right after holidays, Florida having freakishly cold weather making it unbearable to be out in, and then what I’ve got going on currently. I’m also battling sinitis and the beginning of bronchitis so it’s a little trying to power walk when I’m still breathing through my mouth 75% of the time. It was also lovely though. It was a nice and warm and sunny Blue sky kind of day. It felt good to sweat and move. I’m ready to get out to do it again tomorrow too, it’s just what the doctor ordered indeed.

 Reminder when sick and grumpy; ain't this the truth in general!

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T. While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”. Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration: Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better. Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See w

"I strongly believe if you work hard whatever you want, it will come to you. I know that's easier said than done, but keep trying"-Beyonce

I think it's safe to say at this point we all know who Beyonce is and that she does in fact rule the world. Need further prove from anything else you may know as evidence of this? Allow me to share an observation... Whilst walking for some fresh air and cardio Sunday morning, I found myself jamming to the Beyonce station on Pandora, a first in a long time I will add. Now, with other stations powered by a specific artist, one will find other artists taking up residence on that channel as well. Not in this example. While I admit I did skip a few of Bey's songs, sorry girl, only once did an Alicia Keys song play and once it was Destiny's Child (It was Bugaboo for the record and yes, it was as fabulous as I remember. I also need to remember to dig out my pager from storage). Anyhow, all other songs, whether prompted by skipping or what came next, was Beyonce every.single.time. There we have it; further proof Beyonce is queen of all the lands. Let me be clear, I am t
