Did I Really Sleep That Long

I think I may have had my longest sleep in several years last night. 11 hours. WHOA!!! Sadly, I feel like I could still crawl back in bed for a little snooze.

You probably know the culprit……these darn allergies!!! I think at this point, they may be working their way into a sinus infection because I have a slight fever this morning. Bleh! Good thing it’s a rest day because I don’t think my body is up for a workout today!!


  • sleep-11 HOURS
  • water-8 cups

It is funny how easy it has been to reach my goals once I just focused on them. Hopefully by the end of the month, these will be habit and I won’t have to track and make an effort to reach them. It will be awesome once they just come naturally!!


Yesterday’s Workout


  • bicep curls
  • overhead tricep extensions

20 minutes of cardio alternating between incline walking and running at 5.5 mph on treadmill

After my workout yesterday, I had a lunch date with my friend, Brandi.

We kept it simple and met at Chili’s. My lunch was nothing fancy, just a soup and salad combo but it hit the spot. Soup is always a good remedy when you aren’t feeling 100%.

Not the healthiest of soup choices but if I am being honest, I wasn’t too worried about that :-). I sure wish I had another bowl of this right now.

The salad was really good, too! I had the lunch portion so it was just the right size. It came with grilled chicken, black beans, roasted corn, tomatoes and a sprinkle of cheese.


Today’s Breakfast

I have a feeling all of my meals will be pretty simple today because being creative in the kitchen doesn’t sound real appealing right now.

After a super duper DELICIOUS cup of pumpkin coffee, I made Liam and I a bowl of cereal.

Mine consisted of Honey Nut Cheerios and Frosted Shredded Mini Wheat.

Mr. Liam decided on Honey Nut Cheerios only. Though he did request his with a side of M&M’s. Yeah……nice try buddy but that isn’t happening!!!

What is your go to comfort food when you are not feeling your best?

What is your favorite breakfast cereal?

    Sorry you’re still feeling bad friend. 😦 Thanks for the soft glow in the pic. If only we could always walk around with the soft glow effect. Anyways, I stopped by target yesterday and picked up the pumpkin spice coffee…yummy! Love my Suzy- Q and all of the fun facts and recommendations I learn from your blog! 😉

  2. I crave sweet potatoes when I’m under the weather. That, or kabocha squash . . . whichever is more convenient at the time. 🙂

    And about breakfast cereal . . . I don’t like any cereals!!! Never have. I live for oatmeal or oatbran.

  3. that bowl of soup looks stupid good!!!!! oh and no picof Bran’s food – come on you know she loves that 🙂

  4. I’m like you and love hot soup on days when I’m sick. And I think my favorite cereal would Raisin Bran! It’s been my favorite since I was in middle school!
    A side of M&Ms would be nice too. Especially the candy corn kind! I definitely went and bought a bag after I saw your post about them! lol

  5. Yum! I love Chili’s soup! Hope your allergies get better!
    I love all kinds of cereal – yesterday I ate two bowls of Alphabits!

  6. I would KILL for 11 hours of sleep tonight. Not happening 😦
