So I missed my #DailyDiaries post for the past two weeks because I’ve been MAD sick. My ulcerative colitis was complicated when I got the stomach flu. I bled a few days and I was in bed for almost 2 weeks throwing up most days. I went on a raw foods diet for a week and a half and am still trying to fill my lunches and breakfasts with at least one fruit smoothie, usually mango, banana, & strawberry, or mango, banana, and orange. It sucks when you don’t like to cook. 😦 But my sister’s NutriBullet has been a life-saver. I make all my fruit smoothies with it.
I’ve made 2-3 new recipes the past few weeks including raw date-mulberry-raspberry energy bars (recipe by FullyRawKristina), and a blueberry-banana smoothie. I also made fully raw ranch dressing which I ate with a cucumber, romaine lettuce, and grape salad and added it to my daily raw food journal on Tumblr.
This week I’ve been getting back to work slowly, for 4 hours a day. It hasn’t been as productive as October, but I’m giving my body time to heal as I get back to work — which is what I really want to do. This week I re-launched my Avon business, joined Sci-Fi Month, and today I started #SesameBlogging here: http://wishcraftsuccess.wordpress.com/ So A LOT of new things in November and, by George am I ready to not be sick and ready for all the crazy cool fun!!
