Adios orzo

I woke up this morning feeling the worst yet!  I had a sore throat, runny nose and water eyes, yuck.  I'm feeling a little better now but I'm really trying to shake this thing before heading to MI this weekend.  I decided I needed a big nutritious breakfast to get me going today so I chose tea instead of coffee.  I also had two eggs over easy with two pieces of whole wheat toast and three, yes three, kiwis.  They were going to go bad soon and they were too delicious so I thought a couple extra servings of fruit wouldn't hurt.  I also had a big glass of OJ.

After my food settled I decided I needed to make a trip to the gym despite being a little sick.  I didn't make it there all weekend and sometimes the gym makes me feel better...which it did!  I did my "Monday Workout" from my workout plan.  It was tough but I think it's going to be great.  My arms were sore ALL weekend from my workout on Thursday.  
I was ready for some lunch when I got home so I cut up a grapefruit and finished off the rest of my orzo dish.  I didn't think it should sit in the fridge any longer.  I'm kind of glad it's gone though because I made such a big batch and was getting a little tired of it.  I have a ton of leftovers in the fridge so I think that's what I'll be eating this week.  I hate letting any food go bad.  I also cut up a melon for my lunches for interning this week but only snagged a couple pieces because I was pretty full.

I don't think I'll be hungry for dinner before class but I may have to stop at Starbucks and get some vanilla tea to keep me going.

  1. Your breakfast looked so good. Your orzo looks delish!

  2. Kiwis have TONS of vitamin C! It's really SMART to eat three kiwis for breakfast when you're sick!
