Goodbye April, Hello May

424 comments

Despite lingering throat soreness and a tickly cough that keeps me up in the night, I am feeling a bit better each day. I’d say I am about 80% healed. The flu just seems to be leaving my body very. very. slowly.

My flu fighting plan includes:

  • Juicing first thing every morning (ginger, lemon, grapefruit, carrots, cucumbers, beets- are my go to’s)
  • Gargling with warm salt water 3 times a day (now I’m down to 1-2)
  • Neti Pot (1-2 times a day, as needed)
  • Oil of Oregano drops (few drops, 1x a day) + Echinacea drops (1ml, 2-3 times a day)
  • Continue with usual Vitamins (what I normally take: Probiotic, vegan vitamin, B12, Calcium/magnesium, Vit D)
  • Fresh lemon and ginger tea (Grate 1” piece ginger and steep with a tea steeper + juice half a lemon + hot water + maple syrup to taste)
  • Japanese Sencha tea
  • REST (This is the hardest part for me…I am not a ‘rester’)

 

Whether actual physical healers, or mental placebo healers, it’s probably a bit of both. I’m just happy to be feeling better.

I’m really ready to bid farewell to April though. It was not a stellar month for me. An injured sciatic nerve, a bad flu, and a record amount of rainfall all knocked me off my course.

I’ve been feeling pretty down lately because my exercise has been totally side-lined and I’m feeling really out of shape. I keep telling myself that this is just another pothole or obstacle along my journey and it will pass. I miss running. I miss Body Pump. I miss endorphins. I miss the Hot Yoga class that Ange and I planned to try out. But it will come…in time.

I think I’m going to call the month of May ‘getting my groove back’ month. :)

Despite a crummy April, this breakfast was a good way to end the gloom and doom! And we woke up to sunshine for the first time in 2 weeks.

IMG_5135

My breakfast inspiration came from Tina’s hot off the press Carrots ‘N’ Cake book. I was sent this book as a review copy from the publisher last week.

IMG_5110

Tina Haupert, who has been blogging at Carrots ‘N’ Cake for a few years, wrote this book to share her healthy living journey. The book contains over 50 of her go-to recipes (many of which are vegetarian and a few of them are vegan), as well as her workout and healthy eating tips.

I took it as a sign that the very first recipe in the book happened to be vegan. :)

And cookies.

And quite healthy cookies at that!

So I whipped them up this morning and made it into breakfast.

IMG_5123

I adapted this recipe lightly based on what I had lurking in my pantry…

  • I added a tbsp of chia seeds
  • I used spelt instead of whole wheat
  • I used maple syrup instead of agave or honey
  • I used coconut oil instead of canola
  • I used 1/2 a banana instead of 1
  • I reduced the chocolate chips down to 1/4 cup

 

They turned out delicious- big, pillowy soft, fluffy, and lightly sweet. Like a bowl of oatmeal in cookie form. Thanks Tina!

For breakfast, I had a bowl of Nature’s Path Spelt Cereal, with almond milk, buckwheat groats, and a cookie crumbled over top. And some Japanese Sencha on the side.

Shortly after breakfast, the deck guys arrived to install the deck beams around 8am. Not having the experience or equipment to do it himself, Eric hired the pros to install the 22-24 deck beams.

The rest of the deck, Eric plans to do on his own, with the help of myself & friends here and there.

We were really worried when they dug by the well, but thankfully no pipes were broken!! Here’s hoping that everything goes smoothly today!

I hope the sun is shining where you are!

Angela,
Those cookies look wonderful and I can not wait to eat them! Maybe I will make them for the relief efforts we have going on here in the southern US. The death toll looks small compared to recent disasters but the devastation is still great.
Thanks for being a positive point in the day :)

Hope you feel better soon! I am actually suffering with you, because yesterday I got flu myself:) Today I tried gargling the salted water, but it was too “gross” for me to make it:/ I know they say you should rest when feeling ill, but I am absolutely unable to take a rest even when feeling bad..Hopefully someone will come over at my place and persuade me to lie down and watch a movie or something:)

I used to have a similar recipe (although not vegan) years ago but lost it and hadn’t made it enough to know it by heart. I’ve since started following a vegan diet so this recipe was a great find for me! Heading out to buy the missing ingredients now.

I had the same dreaded flu about a month back. It was a doozy and it took me quite awhile to get back to normal. Best advice I can give you is to pace yourself. Don’t try to do too much too soon like I did and then suffered a setback. Hang in there, it will be over soon :)

It’s too late for me to make those amazing looking cookies for breakfast, so I’m thinking maybe lunch? Yum.

May is a great month, hope you get your groove back! ;)

Happy to hear you are doing better. I am happy to say goOdbye to April as well! Sounds like a great cookie I will have to bake some of those up soon. I made the cherry coconut butter loaf again yesterday but added chocolate chips instead of cherries ;). It was Soooo good! Love your recipes and thanks you for perfecting them and sharing them. Can’t wait to see how the deck turns out. Good luck and rest up! :)

This is my first comment even though I’m a long time reader. I’m a law student who currently has a cold so my April was pretty bad as well. I agree…let’s get our groove back in May! Your recipes really inspire me…thanks for that. I am always excited to read your blog everyday. I read it even if there isn’t a new post! My boyfriend and I are vegetarians. I am aspiring to be vegan as I have lactose issues, so thanks for all the great recipe ideas!

I’ve also got the flu though. Not sure I can stand long enough to actually bake yet. Its only day 2. I’m hoping its one of those rare 48 hour bugs. They exist, right?

Uff Isn’t it crappy when the world seems to conspire against your health and fitness routines! I can fully empathise as I have been stuck with a nasty chest infection for about 2 weeks now and I feel so out of shape!! Even though this probably (hopefully!) isn’t the case. Even worse my motivation to cook has dropped off to nothing! :/ Anyway, glad your nearly recovered, hope you kick that last 20% flu very soon! and thanks for cheering me up by pointing out that were at the beginning of a new month! Fresh starts always make things seem better and easier to tackle! Heres to May!! :)

Hey Ange! It’s great to hear that you’re finally getting better – April has never been a favourite month of mine due to exams >_< But now that May is here, it means more sunshine + relaxation, which is always a plus in my books ;)

I'm glad that Eric is trying to build the deck on his own as much as he can. When my dad moved into his townhouse, he took it as a way to experiment with renovations and so far he's turned the house into something completely different! He put in new wallpaper, painted every room, put up a cobblestone pathway and just took those typical, hideous carpet stairs (you know which ones I'm talking about!) and replaced them with wooden ones on his own. He's been pretty lazy about painting them though (sooo surprising for a middle-aged dad haha :P). But of course, a little help for the harder stuff is always good, especially with something as big as a deck!

I really hope May will turn out to be completely opposite for you compared to April, and good luck on the completing the deck! :D

“I’ve been feeling pretty down lately because my exercise has been totally side-lined and I’m feeling really out of shape.” – I can totally relate ! :l I tore my muscle on March 8 and am still trying to heal. Seems like the process is sooooo slooooow and it def has got me down. I miss spin, riding my bike outside, being able to grocery shop alone, making dinner myself, blogging, not hurting every. single. day. *sigh* … but we both need to hang in there bc there is light at the end of the tunnel! :) I am def spending a lot of time appriciating all the things I am normally able to do…

I’ve had three months of either illness or injury (or illness that turned into injury — my cough from a sinus infection resulted in a pulled muscle over my ribs! I could hardly move for three weeks!), then 2 months of almost non-stop travel. I’m just now getting back into the swing of exercise, and it does feel great. I hope that you’re able to get back into the swing of things quickly!

You’ll be back in shape just in time for the nicest time to run in Canada : summer! I live in Montreal and we are experiencing the most crapy spring you can imagine. We’re seing the sun for the first time in weeks today!

I totally empathize with your feeling down from lack of exercise/activity. Last year after I tore my hamstring, I was told I couldn’t workout until it healed….But that takes *forever*! I gave myself about a week off, and felt *so* terrible and depressed that I just had to run….And I did, and it hurt, but it also felt great! A few days later I got sick and was out of commission once again. It was the most difficult month!

Some anecdote take-aways: 1) My hamstring has yet to fully recover, but I’ve been happily running and/or doing some sort of workout every day since, and it’s been worth it! 2) The lack-of-exercise-blues and yucky-out-of-shape-body-feelings DO pass!

And May sounds like a great month to get your groove back!

Glad you are feeling a little better. Hope you feel better in May. I haven’t been feeling great either and I think it’s because of the lack of sun we’ve had in the north. It seems the weather you get in Canada is similar to ours in Wisconsin, so wouldn’t you agree that a good dose of sunshine is all we need?!

I’m also happy to see the end of April. I hurt my lower back two weeks before you did, and I have a bulging lumbar disk that affected my sciatic nerve. The intense pain has now passed but I still have nerve symptoms in my leg and foot: numbness, pins and needles and limited control of my foot. So I have not been able to do any exercise all that time, and probably won’t be able to for several more weeks. That has had a significant effect on my moods and sleep, but I know I’ll get better eventually.

I miss the thrill and energy burst of exercise, and I miss sweating!!
I’m glad your flu is coming to an end and thank you so much for your beautiful blog Angela. xx

I must say…there was something about this month! Usually April is my favorite…its my birthday, the weather turns nicer, and no one seems to have a care in the world because the temps are up and the sun is out.

This year, not so much. From an uncelebrated birthday to wrist pain that won’t resolve and the rain (and low temps and grey skies) which just won’t go away…April was pretty darn awful.

So I’m going to join you in making May getting-my-groove back month. Here’s to resumed workouts…lots of sunshine…and seasonably warm weather!

Good luck to you!

I was sent to your blog about two weeks ago and signed up right away for the e-mail format. I’ve really been enjoying your heart and life style.

Two questions:

1) Do you use a juicer or a vitamix for your juice? I just got a vitamix and I love it, but I miss the juice from my omega. May go back to it for “juice” and use vitamix for “smoothies”; but was curious on your input. Thanks!

2) What is Japanese Sencha?

I will definitely be trying those cookies. I hadn’t heard of Carrots “N” Cake, so thanks for sharing because it sounds wonderful. Are all of the recipes vegan or easily adapted to vegan? I hope you share more of your thoughts about the book!

Hey Angela, I am so happy you are finally feeling better!! I have been seening alot aboutTina’s book on a few of the blogs I read! I can’t wait to get a copy! A friend of mine and I are actually starting to make plans to write a recipe/healthy eat tips/healthy life book. Maybe someday we will start a blog too! I love your stuff, I have also been feeling in a bit of a slump, so I am going to make some goals, like you suggest in your later post. I need to get back on track again. I have two children and that is alway my excuse, but I still need to take care of myself. I know you will have no trouble getting back on track!

So glad to hear you’re feeling better. May is my get-back-into-it month too with getting back into raw food and doing the exercise thing, spinning classes with some P90x thrown in. I was glancing at some of your other comments and it’s gotta be something about the change in seasons that makes us want to get back on track. Best of luck :)

I would love Tina’s book. I met her at Foodbuzz Fest in November, and I’ve made cookies like those from her blog.
Also, I know everyone tells you that you’re inspiring, but I love how you really look at yourself from the outside. Setting goals for May and recognizing problems is really great. I need to do more of that and write it down.

Hi Angela!
I’ve appreciated all your e-mail responses so much, and I definitely know how it feels to be in a slump! (Tends to happen on the weekends.. but hey, that’s college). Those cookies look so hearty, I love the addition of banana. Lately I’ve been waking up to Hodgson Mill’s multigrain oatmeal with flaxseed & soy, topped with fresh strawberries, almonds, and a teaspoon of agave. I find that a good breakfast that you can be excited about helps resist pressing snooze. I’d love to see what else Carrots’N’Cakes has in store!

I do like the idea of that book so please consider me a keen participant!
We’re getting there on our re-no’s as well. My parents were putting in an extereme amount of hours last week and now we have a light and happy hallway and stairwell… for some werd reason tho i’d picked a ccolour identical to what was allready in the kitchen… go figure….. i just liked it and wanted it… but never imagined it to be one we allready had…
AND i now have a blender so i’ll be going hard on the old GM’s soon. but my doctor has advised caution during pollen season as we have still not shuffled out all the cross allergens… ARGH! I hate feeling bunged up…

Phews! No broken pipes is a relief. Next time, be sure to call (or click) before you dig. In Ontario it is a free service. They will let you know if any water, gas, electric, phone, or cable wires are in the area you plan to dig:
