I can’t believe I’m sick | Day 2 of 20

Guys. I never get sick and I am currently so sick I’m bed-ridden. I had signed up for a hot yoga class yesterday, so I still went this morning so I wouldn’t be charged a penalty fee, but that was a terrible idea. In the hour that we were in that heated room, I didn’t even sweat. I felt so weak that even a down dog was hard for me. I had the chills, goosebumps, and barely any energy to move. Currently, my temp is over 102 degrees F, and I’m freezing.

Anyway, I am blogging from bed. I will make this quick because I am dying. I don’t know how I got this sickness but it’s the most sick I’ve been since childhood.

Day 2 Food Log:

I made myself scrambled eggs with mushrooms and onions, guac, and pico de gallo. As I side, I had butter lettuce with Tessamae’s Jalapeno Ranch dressing and a few sunflower seed and cauliflower bites.

I made Sam 2 tacos! These were tortillas were filled with the same sunflower seed and cauliflower bites, butter lettuce, guac, and pico de gallo. He loved it!

It was after this snack of banana slices and peanut butter that I started to feel my throat hurting. I mean, I’m def not allergic to bananas or peanut butter so not sure what happened here. It was also around this time that I was complaining to Sam that I was really cold, while having a thick sweater and blanket wrapped around me.

For dinner, I made us both Beyond Meat burgers with egg, sauteed mushrooms, butter lettuce, guac, and tomatoes. I ended up throwing a ton of pickles on there as well as some Lemon Oil  dressing from Tessamaes!

After dinner, I went to my heels class (feeling so fatigued, again bad idea but I had already signed up and my friend was meeting me there so I couldn’t bail) and felt like I was gonna die. Sam got a massage while I was in dance, and then he picked me up to go for some boba. He got a matcha green tea smoothie with boba and I got plain black tea.

Ok that is all for now. I need to go rest. I don’t think I will be working out for a while. Ugh. Being sick is the worst!!! But at least Sam is taking care of me, making sure I take my medication and my fluids. He even made me a fresh smoothie! That is a huge deal because he doesn’t ever really cook 😉

Tomorrow’s food log is probably gonna be weird because my appetite is off. I hope you have a much healthier day than I am having and a lovely start to your weekend!

    wow.. that almost sounds like the flu… sorry to hear though.. hope you will feel better soon…

  2. Yaa says:

    I hope you will feel better soon.

  3. That’s actually really odd, Cassey. I think yesterday or the day before, I got sick too, and with the exact same symptoms. Fatigue in the morning, followed by eventual coldness even though I was previously warm with the space heater on, and still more fatigue. Weird huh. It’s good to know you’re still able to enjoy yourself with meals and your hubby. I’m glad you mentioned not working out whilst sick, since beforehand, I honestly didn’t know whether to keep going. Hope you feel better soon. Thanks for sharing <3

    Get well soon Cassey! I got sick during the holidays as well and it really sucked… I also had a fever and sore throat, so I know what it feels like. But now I am healthy again, and happy for working out again! Rest as much as possible and get well soon!
    Sending some hugs from Hungary! 🙂

    If you have a sore throat hot milk with honey is the perfect combo!! And drink lots of tea with lemon. Feel better soon

  7. Get better soon Cassie! Do you find that you’re more or less hungry when you’re sick?

    That dinner looks seriously delicious. I hope you’re feeling better and remembering to eat and drink enough (so you don’t lose your strength).

    Hope you get well soon. What you are having right now sounds to me that your body is too ‘heaty’. It’s a very Chinese thing where we believe that our body is made out of a combi of ying and yang and heatiness or cold could imbalance the ying and yang.

    Yes, wrapping yourself up and allowing the cold sweat to pour out will definitely help a lot. And Lots and Lots and Lots of rest and water. Sleep, especially helps.

    Don’t be too harsh on yourself, girl. Your body needs the rest and you deserve the rest.

    Love from Malaysia =)

    Sorry to hear that! I was all pumped to start 2020 off to a good start but now me and my kiddos all have the flu 🙁 So much for that!

  12. Emily says:

    Feel better soon Cassey!! I hope Sam and Sir George are taking care of you!! 😉
    I’m really enjoying the January calendar, those shoulder isolation moves really killed me today!! Xx

  13. Cindy Eckles says:

    Feel better really soon. The food looks really amazing though

  14. georgette says:

    Very sorry to hear that you’re ill. I pray you feel better soon and thank you for all that you share.

  15. Anna says:

    So… does this mean that we get to see Sam’s cooking instead? That would be kind of fun too lol. Take care of yourself and hope you’ll feel better soon!!! Being sick is the worst 🙁

  16. Diana says:

    I can definitely relate to being sick. I have gotten sick so many times over the last year, I have lost count. It almost seems like I was sick more often than I was well, and that’s not normal for me. Something about this past year that had a lot of people getting sick repeatedly. And I got the flu shot! But nothing seemed to work. Anyways, I have been free of any kind of sickness for about a week now, which is good. I hope you get better soon and rest up because it will be a lot harder to get well if you push yourself too much.

    i have heard like if u want to change ur diet then first take 75% of ur diet and 25% of new diet then make it 50-50 percentage and then old diet will be 25% and new 75% and at last make it 100% of new diet .. it worked for me when i changed from nonveg to vegan.. i think she should try this

  19. Shekinah H says:

    Feel better praying for you!

  20. Julia says:

    Hi Cassey, are you still tracking macros during the meatless challenge ?

    1. Julia says:

      Good luck with the flu, not fun ! Cayenne pepper and lemon could help 🙂

  21. Sarah says:

    Sorry you don’t feel well – for the sake Of others I urge you to please please please not go work out in a class when you are feverish and could get others sick!

    1. A says:

      Yes! Excellent point!! It’s not just about herself.

  22. Lulu says:

    Oh nooooo!! Poor thing! Please keep resting your body!!! We totally understand if you can’t keep the blog rhythm on, I mean you’re only human! We want you to take care of YOU and feel better soon!! XOXOXO

    I hope you feel better soon! Remember to stay strong 🙂

  24. Stephanie says:

    I’m just getting over the flu. Thought I only had a cold but it’s just a different strain. Go get tested. Get lots of rest and fluids. Feel better.

    1. Amanda says:

      This might go without saying but a sore throat and fever could be a throat infection. Check your throat and tonsils (if you still have them) for white spots and if you have any, go to a doctor. Also if you have swollen glands in your neck, go to a doctor. Rest and stay away from people until you know you’re not contagious x

  25. B_F says:

    Ugh that’s the worst. I hope you feel better soon. I remember getting the stomach flu a few years ago from a new year’s eve party I had been to, and it was draining. Keep drinking your fluids!

  26. s_mucker says:

    I got sick like this TWICE in 2019! 😱 Both times were within the first 3 months at my current baking job. My sleep schedule and eating patterns had changed drastically and I think my immune system just gave out from severe fatigue. I remember the 2nd time I got sick like that, I decided to stop eating until I finally truly felt hungry (drank water and a little bit of coffee), and I literally slept from the time I got off work (12pm) until an hour before my next shift (3am the next day), and then boom, I felt good as new. So hopefully hydration and good, quality sleep do you wonders, Cassey! Get well soon! ❤

  27. Christina says:

    Sounds like you may have the flu. If your fever continues and you have respiratory symptoms, consider going to a clinic. They may do a quick flu test and if positive, give you a Tamiflu shot (anti-viral flu shot). Would be more important if, like me, you were in a vulnerable group (I’m 71). Hope you feel better.

  28. Rebecca says:

    Feel better! I’m trying to eat less meat, so it’s so cool to look at your meals!

  29. Bianca says:

    Feel better soon! And let your body heal before you take off again.

  30. Lauren E says:

    Oh no! I hope you feel better soon Cassey! Sounds like the flu 🙁
