Day 1 (Friday) / Flu City

Friday suuuucked. I woke up feeling like I had been hit by a truck. I had the flu. Body aches, fatigue, congestion, headache, chills, blah blah blah. So thankful for my roommates Julie and Cooper for many reasons, but really only because they made me food this entire day. (It's hard to convey joking without you hearing enunciation in my voice, but whatevs, I'm pretty sure only Cristin reads this. Hey Cristin!). Julie and Cooper are a married couple and have thee CUTEST baby girl named Joanie (a.k.a. Joanster), the chillest/sweetest dog named George, and several lady/diva chickens. I love it.

So I didn't crawl out of bed until about 12:15, and my roommate Cooper was making breakfast/lunch and offered to make me some. We ate:

  • Red potatoes sliced & sauteed in olive oil, salt and pepper 
    • Potatoes and salt were added to the Whole 30 "okay" list this year. Or some time recently. Don't quote me on that. 
  • Fried eggs over arugula
    • He taught me this delicious and easy recipe: heat some olive oil in a skillet, place some arugula in the skillet (you can use a number of greens), crack an egg over the greens, cover it with a lid and cook until the egg is cooked the way you like it. 
I also had some green tea. I crawled back into bed and started watching Making a Murderer.
I figured this time was as good as any to binge watch this ultra-depressing Netflix documentary series about a man who was in jail for 18 years for a crime he didn't commit. I both highly recommend it AND warn you not to watch it. It is heart wrenching. 

At some point around 3pm I made some coffee and saw that my other roommate Julie had gone to the store (I pathetically texted her earlier to see if she could grab me a couple things). I had a snack: 
  • Unsweetened apple sauce (always need to look at the ingredients label! Eeeeverything has sugar)
  • Banana and unsalted almond butter 
Then I fell asleep for a while, or at least tried to. It was rough. Around 7:45 or so I ate dinner with Julie and Cooper. Again, so thankful for them. They made: 
  • Flank steak
  • Red potatoes 
  • Roasted brussel sprouts 
Crawled back into bed again. Fell asleep about 10:45pm. Day 1=overrrrr.
