I'm slowly getting out of my reading slump. I'm reading a dozen books at the same time, just so I always find something I want to read. My very chaotic way to combat slumps.I'm glad I'm slowly managing to pull myself away from Netflix and back to the books.
My blood results came back, and my GP almost had a heart attack at my cholesterol levels and immediately put me on Statins. I'm not too happy about that, but I'm also getting referred to a lipid clinic, so I can see a specialist. My diet is fairly healthy, but I'm going to try and approach this in a low saturated fat, low sugar way and will attempt to move more until I can see the specialist. My throat is feeling better, hopefully the ENT will give me a clean bill of health soon, and I can stop taking the anti-acid tablets.
Enough about health. I've booked cinema tickets for next week. Hopefully I get to go. I haven't been able to in a while and I miss it.
My kitchen will look sort of sad from now on, because I will mostly eat the healthy stuff...or whatever is considered healthy at the moment.
These are a low calorie, high protein snack. Wilted spinach and red pepper cubes mixed with egg whites. Added some spices: black pepper, cayenne pepper and turmeric. Pour mix into muffin pan and bake at 350F/180C for 20-25 minutes or until the egg white is set. See, how sad my life is? Last week it was a mushroom cream sauce, this week we are looking at egg whites and spinach.
My current read has magic, pirate ships, a prince and betrayal.
I hope everyone else is doing well? Let me know about your week. Happy reading.
I’m always envious of those who can juggle so many books at once. The most I can manage is one book to read (physical or Kindle) and one of audio. Beyond that I start to feel scattered. Good luck with the statins. I’ve tried 4 or 5 over the years and just cannot tolerate the side effects. Blah.ReplyDelete
They started me on 20mg and so far no side effects but I'm really not liking all the stories I hear. And, I'm juggling badly if that makes it sound at all better!Delete
I read several at once normally as well, but in slumps I seem to want to start everything i see just hoping something sticks.ReplyDelete
I hope you get every figured out health wise. I understand the healthy food sadness. I've been having some severe acid reflux and my dr gave me meds and the task of switching up how I eat. I don't mind healthy food, but sometimes I am a sucker for salty foods
I hope you have a good week Olivia!
Yeah, acid reflux is my other problem... I feel like my body just decided to stop working properly.Delete
I read multiple books at once as well. It depends on my mood and what I'm editing at the time. Netflix and Hulu are nice breaks.ReplyDelete
I all goes well with the new healthy eating! Have a great week!
Thank you :)Delete
So great that you got out from the reading slump. It's always worst.ReplyDelete
So sorry you have been dealing with health issues. But hey, those snacks look quite tasty :D I guess we can always come up with some tasty foods even if you are on low diet :P
And your current read looks interesting :) I hope you end up loving it :)
Every now and then I'll read two books at the same time haha I can't imagine reading more than that!ReplyDelete
That's great that you're figuring out how to bust that reading slump. Those are the worst.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear that you're having to be on such a strict diet. Those spinach and pepper snacks actually look and sound pretty good though and thankfully with so much online, tons of tasty but healthy recipes are right at your fingertips :)
My diet is fairly healthy too but my cholesterol levels are a little high too. Good luck lipid clinic and happy reading! Welcome back to the bookiverse!ReplyDelete
Thank you! And well, a little high would be fine, mine are through the roof :( Send help!Delete
Good luck with the diet alterations and more low fat, low sugar foods. I hope things turn around SOON :)ReplyDelete
Yay for getting out of the reading slump! And that book you're currently reading sounds awesome, too.
Hope you get to the cinema! What're you hoping to watch?
I hope to review the films this week. The Post, The Greatest Show on Earth, Darkest Hour, The Shape of Water and 3 Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Whoops I went a lot in the last 7 days and I'm glad I'm getting back into it :)Delete
