If you’re thinking about getting a kidney infection…don’t.
Because what will happen is this: you’ll make the decision to do some reprioritizing in your life, get all excited to tackle your newfound schedule and them – bam! – you’re laying on a bed in the ER with a bonafide UTI kidney infection on a Monday night. Even better, your mom will ask you if you got said UTI because you forgot to pee after sex. If you find yourself in this embarrassing situation, at least there’s Roasted Vegetable Toasts to comfort you.
Of course, as a result of the UTI, you will be forbidden from consuming caffeine, dairy and your daily multivitamin in addition to being told you cannot do any strenuous exercise. So long Couch to 5K program…and so long marathon training for 10 days!
A bright spot in your recovery could be your first speaking engagement! You’ll get to hang out with a bunch of cool ladies (and one gent!) from the UW-Madison Dietetics & Nutrition Club and talk food, NCAA basketball and blogging. It will help immensely in making you feel better.
Which leads me to today…and the picture above. A typical Saturday morning. More recovery.
Computer open. Your favorite veggie scramble. Coffee waiting to be poured. Your iPhone. The beginnings of a to-do list. And your red reading glasses.
While you may be yearning for the sunny freedom of last weekend, somehow sitting down to catch up on work and emails and make to-do lists and plan for productivity and tackle your weekend is a good feeling.
Let’s get it started.
