Feeding a Cold

I know this really doesn't work, but somewhere it is hidden in my fight a cold, eat! So today has not been very good food wise. I'm stuffed up, didn't sleep well last night and just felt that eating would help make it better. It's hard to explain that my emotions weren't completely tied up in was more of a mechanical response that I realized was happening but really didn't think I should try to stop it. Of course I didn't feel any better after those cookies.... I need to reprogram this part of my brain. I don't get sick very often, so I'm not surprised that I haven't thought about my response when this happens.

On top of the cold, I woke up with a very sore knee. It was kneecap pain which takes me by surprise because I didn't hit the knee at all yesterday. It could be the cold and change from moist air to super dry air. It could be the squats or jumping jacks from the 30 day shred. I don't know. I just don't like it! I know some of my readers are dealing with a lot more severe pain then what I've got, and I don't want to be a cry baby. Just really don't want a determent.

Hopefully tomorrow I feel better.


  1. welllll,
    I might buy the whole eating to beat the head cold thing if it had been chicken noodle soup...but cookies ?
    Well, I hope you feel better tomorrow Jodie...
    I had pizza last night and it sat likke a lump in my stomach all day.
    won't be doing that again any time soon.

  2. I get the cookie thing. I think I could eat a cookie to fix just about any ailment. Normally doesn't work though :)

    Hope you feel better...

  3. Awww... Hope you feel better soon. I've got a nasty cold (caught if from Tabitha!) and I've got an ear infection, which is making me feel a bit 'weird' and drunk, but without the alcohol!

    I'm craving oatmeal at the moment, so not too bad!

  4. Feel better fast, Jodie. I get the mechanical eating...just you being aware of it will probably help you have more of a handle on it next time you're sick. I hope your knee feels better fast.
