In Sickness and in Health....
It's definitely a lot easier to focus on fitness, weight control and that food diary when I'm well. Alas, a minor cold from early in the week morphed into a bad illness yesterday. It might even be a touch of the flu, although I did get a flu shot in October.
But these symptoms are not the usual head-cold ones. No appetite, for one thing, which is a very rare occurence (for better or for worse) in my experience. Also I have a headache and other achy body parts.
Point being, I'm going to have to take a break from blogging until things improve.
Of course, no appetite means not many calories being consumed, which is an upside, I guess.
All I want is chicken soup, and even that is just hypothetical. I managed to throw together dinner for my husband last night (pasta with red sauce and turkey meatballs) but could only force down a few bites.
What can I say? Being sick is a drag, to say the least.
Bistro Grace has opened on Hamilton Avenue in the spot where Honey used to be. Here is the five-spice duck breast, quite tasty. Click on photo to visit the website. More to come on this welcome restaurant.
It's not ALL bad to have passed 60, but for the most part, it sucks. I hope not to rant and complain the entire time, but instead will make this a blog about the ups and (mostly) downs of encroaching old age. I'm still working, by the way, as a college prof at the University of Cincinnati. My other blog, www.healthyfoodies.blogspot.com, is about healthy eating.
