Failing Miserably

Ok, I have a cold. A whopping nasty sore throat, coughing, stuffy head, fever, achy muscles cold. And I have done absolutely nothing. I took a 4 hour nap today while the kids were at school. I feel awful. I will probably lose weight from this, albeit not a very fun way.

Being sick stinks. And losing weight because of it is even worse because it never stays lost.

Ok, here is what you do. Get some epson salt (or powdered ginger- make sure it is powdered). Run a bathtub full of hot water, as hot as you can stand to be in it and not get burned. Pour 1/4 cup of either the salt or the ginger into the water and stir it up. Now get in and cover yourself with as much water as you can. Sit in it for 20 minutes.

When you get out, don't dry off just wrap up in a big towel or old sheet and go to bed and sleep as long as your body needs to.

Wake up feeling great.

While you are in the tub you will feel like you are on fire and when you get out your body will be beet red. When you wrap up, you are going to sweat. A lot. but it is pulling all the toxins out of your body. You will see it on the sheet. But you will feel great.

My mom used to do that ginger thing to us when we were kids. You know what, I'm thinking I might do it too.
