How can today be the last FULL day of my vacation?

It went by WAY TOO FAST.

Today I feel a bit better.  I have resigned to the fact that I will have to let my cold sore heal and try to reduce the stress I am feeling so that I will heal better.  I completely believe that our emotional state is so tied to our physical state.  Anyways, today I upped my lysine intake–4000 mg (whereas I normally take just 500 mg daily for prevention).  I took it spread out through the day…10 am, 2 pm, 6 pm and I’ll take it again at 10 pm.  I read online that taking an increased dose of lysine helps to stop the virus inside the cold sore from replicating (there’s a lot more to it, but that’s the cliff notes version…I love reading about stuff like that…I know I’m a nerd!).  I THINK it may be helping…at least in my eyes, the cold sore is smaller.  We’ll see what it looks like tomorrow morning.

So today was pretty productive…I made these Buttery Apple Streusel Oat Squares from Oh She Glows (with just a few changes…used an egg instead of a flax egg, and used butter instead of Earth Balance, and used coconut milk instead of almond milk).  The kitchen smelled like Thanksgiving 🙂

Then this afternoon we made a trip to Target to look for some stuff for the porch.  And we had awesome luck!  We found a deck bench to hide our recyclable containers, some cushions to go on top, a small table, and an outside rug (wicked steal…7 x 10 on clearance for only $83!–we were looking online and a 5 x 8 was close to $150).  The car was stocked full on the ride home.

For the last night of vacation we got Chinese!  It was AWESOME.  It’s been quite a while since we had it.  Vegetable fried rice, vegetable lo mein, sesame tofu, and spring rolls.  Mmmmmm!!

Tonight has been all about relaxing.

Tomorrow I’m back to the grind 😦

Let me just say, I could SERIOUSLY be on vacation for a lot longer!!

  1. Kaye, what kind of a bench did you get to keep your recycling in. I really need something to hide our recycling bins.

    Love Oh She Glows! I recently made Angela’s Weekend Glow Kale Salad and High Protein Quinoa Almond Berry Salad. Both were delicious!

    • It was from Target and right now stored in the basement and I’m too lazy to look to see what brand! But I’m planning on putting it together this week and I’ll let you know how it works and the brand. Yes, Angela is so inspiring…her food always looks so good but I have to admit I haven’t made too much. Again, laziness! I want to though! That kale salad looked good but I think I’m still scared of kale 🙂

      • No worries. I could just go to Target and look but I always end up spending too much money! Kale took me a little while, but now I am actually a little bid addicted to it.
