Was feeling better today. Had planned to go for an evening walk, but as the evening wore on, I keep getting more and more congested. It seemed to be really breaking up this morning.
Well anyway, the coughing fits have all but ended. I have had the humidifier on in the living room and the vaporizer on in the bedroom.
Just trying to get some air, steam, something to help me breathe a little easier.
And yes I do plan to walk and walk soon!
It seems as if I have just put everything on hold, when in fact I really havent.
In fact as of right now today, i am on point with my calories and all other nutrients fell into line pretty well also.
Except the iron and fiber.
Keep on tweaking this til I figure it out.
And still taking supplements.
Other than that, I have very little to report. Havent "worked" all week, this is ridiculous,
One day I need you, the next day I dont and then not for a week....its crazy.
Very soon I am going to begin looking for something much more stable and steady.
But for now, I am drinking my oj and taking my mucinex and hoping the scale doesnt climb since I havent walked this week.
Just holding on by my fingernails, but still holding on and hanging in there.
For this moment in time, I am home alone and loving it.
I should have this peaceful solitude until around 10pm.
Nothing to do,

This whatever it is I have had, pneumoniabronchitisstrepthroatfluheadcoldi
I havent slept alot.
Last night was the worst, I went to bed, however, forgetting to take my Nyquil. And too tired to get up and take it.
So, I coughed most of the night thru.
But at least its beginning to break up and come up.
My head is still congested, this has been my biggest issue, since my throat stopped hurting beyond bearability.
I am just hoping tonight with a good nights sleep, fingers crossed, I will finally get it out and over it.
I have not walked since last week and I am so hoping this cold is soon behind me, so that I can walk, and breathe.
I sit and wonder about some people sometimes.
Me, hacking up a lung every twenty seconds, was asked today by a friend if I went walking.
And when I replied no, I got the sideways look.
Maybe I should have hacked in her face, no no, I take that back.
I wouldnt even wish this on my worst enemy.
Soon, it will be behind me and my feet will be back on the track.

I am so sick!!
It is amazing how quickly some illnesses can come upon a person.
Woke up yesterday morning, feeling good, had some errands to run.
Around 1pm I started to notice my throat was a little scratchy and by about 5pm, i was full on sick as a dog!!
My throat is so raw, I feel like someone is holding a torch to it.
I cant stand to swallow and I feel so run down and tired and achy.
I went immediately to the drug store and got some vitamin c throat drops and have been taking prescription mucinex and drinking hot tea with honey and ginger.
But this morning I had to go to cold water with crushed ice chips.
I feel awful.
And I really really need to go grocery shopping. But I just dont know how I will be able to.
It feels like its getting worse instead of better.
If its still this bad come Monday, doctors office bound.

Just about too tired to blog tonight. Dont have any idea why I am so tired, maybe because I got very little sleep last night and got up early this mornng and have drove all day and then walked an hour?
But anyway, planning to get into bed soon as I have another early one tomorrow.
Hoping I sleep well.

the invention of social media has made it almost impossible for those of us who choose to use it, to keep quiet many details of our lives.
about a year ago a friend said something to me that really angered me, he said, you shouldnt live your life on facebook.
so i challenged him to go to my facebook page and find one thing on there that was about my private life.
there are very few details.
no relationship status, very few pics of me with the man i am in a relationship with.
no job status or former jobs.
i post mostly joke memes or some silly comment, such as my current status concerns americas got talent.
today however, i did post that my personal life is none of YOUR business, meaning a certain person who insists on coming up to me every time i go into the store where she works and asks me questions about MY life and my personal business.
so today i told her finally once and for all that if i want her to know i will be sure to run in and tell her.
its childish but its so angering, you cannot go buy a newspaper and a cup of coffee without her running up asking questions that really dont concern her.
but seriously, i share more here on sp than i do on facebook.
mostly because none of my everyday friends or family are on here with me and most of you, sp friends, are also going thru challenges of one kind or another, weight, substance, financial, relationship issues, whatever it is, you can relate and offer words of advice and encouragement and very very little judgement.
its refreshing to have this outlet to vent and to track my food and exercise and to talk about things that are making me happy, sad, angry, whatever.
sometimes i will post something on facebook and before the day is out i delete it.
but i do not live my life on facebook.
i do not post when i am moving, when i am fighting with my family or my man or my son.
i do not post about family issues at all.
and i have pretty much stopped posting about my weight or my walking.
i keep that for here.
and for my closest friend and my doctor.
this was just a little rant about how i got so angry in my own life that i took it to the social media to allow others to take it to others to take it to others, so that eventually all the tounges would be a waggin and fingers pointing.
just take this advice, if you ask someone something once and they give you a vague answer, maybe dont ask them again.
unless your intention was to anger them to begin with.
and the advice for myself, tell them plainly the first time so that they have no reason to ask again and therefore save myself the anger.
other than all that it was a good day, i visited with my good friend and had lunch with some others and came home to a very very clean house, courtesy of my sons g/f and im getting to work a little this week and going tomorrow to get my hair colored and thinking about getting a dog.
