Feeling better

Friday, June 01, 2007

I'm taking a horse's dose of amoxicillan and I'm beginning to feel better. My doctor thought that strep throat was the likely culprit rather than a sinus infection. My throat *did* hurt, but my whole face hurt clear down to the bones. I spent most of the day sleeping and drooling, sweating and chilling. I'm still feeling far from perky, but I don't feel the need to take a nap every couple of hours, either.

I was down another pound from my last weigh-in. After the weekend of cream cheese mints and only exercising three days out of seven this is something of a minor miracle. Especially considering the ramen noodles I was craving for lunch yesterday--salty? ya think?! Maybe I wasn't eating as badly as i thought last weekend. Or perhaps it will all show up again when I'm feeling better?


Rare sick day

Thursday, May 31, 2007

Since I started exercising daily I have rarely been sick. I must have a great immune system! But today, oy! My sinuses are staging a coup and they want OUT! Bleah--I'd almost forgotten how dreadful those sinus infections are. At least I think that's what I think this is. I called in sick to work, skipped my exercise this a.m. and am off to the doctor shortly for a diagnosis and drugs. Now if I could just sleep the day away--laying down makes my head pound. Never mind that the kids are home from school now, too. Perhaps I can guilt them into being my slaves? Heh, heh, heh ;-)


Post-Memorial Day

Tuesday, May 29, 2007

I went crazy on Sunday eating cookies and those cream cheese "mints" my SIL made for her daughter's graduation. Fortunately, I was able to leave that food behind on Sunday. We were still traveling on Monday, but I think I made better food choices. I should log it and see how well I really did. Not good, but it could have been worse, for sure. Graduation was lovely, the weather was ideal, I kept busy at the reception refilling the food table. It's all pretty good.

Did an easy work-out this morning since I'd been away from it for three days and I made it. Hope to get a walk in this evening to help me get back up to speed.

Good for you. I'm back on the exercise train tonight. Woot!

End of the week

Friday, May 25, 2007

OK, I'll admit that 530 calorie tuna Subway really did keep me full all day yesteray. I was in my range for the day, although at the high end of it. I was up .2 of a pound from Wednesday, but that's not enough to make me change my weight ticker. I'm still down 57 pounds and I had a good, sweaty workout this morning.

I have graduation parties this weekend, so I'm glad I had a good week. The weekend may be less than stellar. I won't have my computer and I don't think I'll be able to do much exercise and food will be everywhere. This will be a test. I hope I can get some walking in to counteract what I'm eating!

Subway tuna

Thursday, May 24, 2007

Why didn't anyone TELL me a Subway tuna sandwich had over 500 calories! Geez. I'm sick of turkey and needed a change. Should have done veggie delite for half the calories. I should stay full all afternoon now, huh?
