Wednesday- 3 miles, Jillian Michael Video
We’ve caught the bad cough/cold bug. Unfortunately, J has it the worst=( I did a short workout this morning because the Dr. wanted to see J because he’s having a hard time breathing. I hate seeing my little guy sick. I was up with him every 2 hours last night to make sure he was breathing, comfortable, and drinking water. I felt like I had a newborn all over again.
Although he’s been sick, he still has a little smile in him=) And selfishly I really like all the extra cuddles I’ve gotten throughout the night and this morning.
I hope everyone is staying healthy, Runner’s World has an article telling you what you can eat for common symptoms, I liked the ‘Winter Power Foods’ so I shared some with you. Click here is the full article.
Winter Power Foods
Boost your chances of staying healthy with these nutrient-packed picks
Dairy Most milk, yogurt, and cheese contains vitamin D and calcium. These nutrients work together to prevent bone loss.
Slow-cooked stews Made with lean beef, postrun stews provide iron needed for red blood cell production.
Canned tuna It’s a good source of vitamin D, important in the winter when less sun exposure decreases our body’s ability to produce it.
Barley This chewy grain (perfect for soups and stews) is high in cholesterol-lowering fiber and selenium, which reduces free-radical damage.
Winter squash Sharpen your eyesight for dark months with vitamin A superstars, such as pumpkin and butternut squash.
Onions and garlic These bulbs provide a boost of flavor along with antimicrobial properties, which may help protect you from winter bugs.
Kale In season in early winter, this leafy green delivers a megadose of vitamin K, which helps maintain strong bones and form blood clots.
Baked potatoes White spuds are high in vitamin C, while sweet potatoes are rich in vitamin A—two antioxidants that help protect your immune system.
Citrus Oranges, grapefruits, and other types of citrus fruits (at their peak in the winter months) are high in fiber and immune-boosting vitamin C.
