Mono a Mono

So, I'm pretty sure I should win the "Blogging Slacker of the Year" award. No updates in two weeks is so unlike me...but wait, I have an excuse! Of course I have an excuse you say, people always do. But wait, mine might actually be considered valid. I've got mono. Yep, mono or what some people refer to as the "kissing disease." Unfortunately, I got mine by sharing food with my high school best friend who unknowingly was carrying the virus.

All in all, it hasn't been nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Sure, I'm tired all the time but I love to sleep so that's not so bad. My fever's pretty much gone and I'm living on yummy comfort foods. I'll give you a breakdown of what I ate yesterday:

-Breakfast: low-calorie English muffin: one side topped with margarine and the other side topped with peanut butter (margarine and peanut butter = the best of both worlds!)

Lunch: macaroni and cheese made with skim milk and margarine to cut the calories in half; a salad with low-cal. Ranch dressing and a piece of whole toast topped with margarine

Dinner: chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes (topped with ow fat sour cream and margarine), a dinner roll and side salad.

Did you happen to notice a them in my meals? Perhaps a margarine theme? I'm eating very healthy and incorporating lots of fruits and veggies to help my immune system while still enjoying my favorites. And naturally margarine's going to be a part of this healthy diet too!

Cheers to all and I'm off to take nap.
