Well, I still have no voice at all today. Last night it was a faint roar and this morning its just a raspy whisper. And now Ryan doesn’t feel well. But….I think that might be blamed on other things…such as taking shots at the wedding to celebrate the gators and then staying up til 2 am to re-watch the entire game that we taped at home. Hmmmmm…….. 😉

I’m going to stay really low today and rest as much as possible. I can’t afford to miss another day of work on Tuesday because I have to have a certain number of hours by next Friday in order to graduate!!! I’m sure I have enough, but missing another 8 hours isn’t really going to help me at all.

This morning I made a bowl of oats using a little less than 1/2 cup oats (it was all that was left in the Quaker cannister!), 1/2 cup silk, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 banana, half a scoop of chocolate protein, 1 tbsp chocolate peanut butter and stirred in about 2 tsp ground flax because the oatmeal was pretty runny as I used less oats and the same amount of liquid that I usually do. Flax helped to pull everything together and gave my oats a new nutty taste!


Gahhh I hate feeling sick and not even being able to exercise! I just want to shake this thing asap! Thank you guys so much for all your sweet comments last night though—I really hope I looked better than I felt!

See you in a bit!

    So sorry you’re sick, hope you feel better soon! I’m also missing my voice, but solely on account of the Alabama/Florida game…amazing! My bf went to FL, so I’ve become a big honorary fan 🙂 Yay, go Gators!

    Hope you feel better soon Jenna. I know it is hard missing workouts though…the body really does become addicted to the endorphins! You’ll be up and running (spinning? :)) in no time.

    Oh I am sorry its not going away!! I know I live in a different country but one of the drug producers here sells this pill: I looked up their site and this is their English page with the product’s details
    If I take it about three times a day when sick I feel a lot better. Maybe try to see the composition if its different from whatever you are using now. Perhaps they have a similar drug in the US?

    sorry you’re feeling so gross, Jenna! I hope you feel better soon:) I’m not much of a reader, but I know you are, so I wanted your advice on choosing a book. I want to read a book over winter break, but have no idea what to read if I can only pick 1. If you had to suggest 1 book to someone, which would you pick?

    Mmm so I finally bought some of the hot’n healthy squares that you eat sometimes. I haven’t had chocolate chip, but I love the cinnamon roll one. Today I just tried Banana Nut and well… I was expecting amazingness but it really didn’t taste too different than the Cinnamon kind. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t great. Just throwing that out there!
    Feeeeel betterrrr~!

    I got sick right before the weekend too! Everyone’s right, you can’t even tell that you were sick. Hopefully your voice comes back!

    You’ve probably posted this at some point, but I don’t remember. I’ve been having some trouble finding protein powder that doesn’t taste totally awful. What kind do you use?
