I haven't been feeling great this week (PMS or PCOS, not sure which) and so that has meant a full week of no workouts plus bad food. I have this thing when I don't feel good, I don't want to cook, clean or do much of anything but grump around and lay on the couch watching sappy movies. Anyone else have this urge or am I just odd?
I think a cat hair tumbleweed just floated by. I really need to clean. I started on it yesterday, I put my sweats on after a very long
Once inside I moved some stuff around, wiped down some counters. Started feeling cruddy again so I layed down on the couch after turning on Eat Pray Love and fell asleep. Now if you know me, you know this is odd for me, I move constantly, I am always cleaning or running some errand or working or keeping myself very busy. I don't nap, I don't lay down for long periods of time and I rarely go back to bed once I am out of it. But this morning I realized it was probably a combination of PMS and my diet. I always get really Eeyore around that time of the month (well ever since Metformin regulated my periods) and when I eat poorly it makes it so much worse. Especially since I am crazy bloated right now.
It might be quitting smoking (day 16) or a cold (my coworker has been sick) or just a combination of everything for all I know. Either way time to clean up my diet again, so I can at least eliminate that.
So I started stalking the Internet (hence why I am back in bed with the laptop) for recipes. Banana bread, Thai tacos, yellow curry and turkey enchiladas are on this weeks prep in advance menu. The yellow curry I can freeze and reheat. The Thai tacos lasted us a few days last time, including lunches. The turkey enchilada can be reheated and the banana bread is just a treat. While for lunches I will be making a recipe I found from Peas and Crayons for savory sweet potato casserole. I have my shopping list ready to go.
In the mean time, I did make one healthy recipe last week and it tasted AMAZING.
