I’m not going to beat around the bush- I’ve been feeling pretty bad the past few weeks. My POTS symptoms- dizziness, fatigue, lightheadedness, stomach problems, have been really bad. Thankfully, now I know why! Apparently there’s still traces of Vicodin in my system from when I got my wisdom teeth out, and it decreases blood pressure. My BP is really low normally, so the Vicodin makes it even lower, causing my symptoms. (I’m working on a page about POTS so it will make more sense to y’all!)
Regardless, I felt like going for a run today. At 2:00 pm. In 90 degree weather. Probably not the best decision I’ve ever made. I started fast, then slowed down once the heat and humidity got to me. I even walked a few times- it was like a sauna outside! I think I went about 3 miles, but I didn’t run an actual route so I’m not sure. I just tried to stay in the shade as much as possible! When I got back, I practically ran upstairs to take a shower. There’s nothing better than a cold shower after a run. 😀
Then I headed to the new grocery store in my town- Fresh Market! I’ve heard good things about it and it definitely did not disappoint. They even had Barney Butter! I would have bought some, but it was $9.99 per jar. Heh, not happening. I did pick up some Justin’s Maple Almond Butter squeeze packs and Oikos caramel yogurt. It was delicious- I think it would make a great dip for apples. Thankfully, when I opened the carton, it didn’t look like this poor yogurt.
When I came home I made a recipe that I will be sharing on Monday (it’s really good!), worked on OpenSky stuff, and cooked myself dinner. I had Annie’s Shells with Aged Cheddar. It was pretty good, but I must admit- I’m a Kraft Mac n’ Cheese girl at heart. 🙂
What is your favorite kind of mac n’ cheese?
