I have been really bad this week at tracking my food and fitness I need to get back with the program. Last weekend I came down with a bug the left side of my throat was super swollen bright red and felt like I was swallowing knives. OUCH. I went to the Doctor on Monday and he did a culture to check for strep and it came back negative so no antibiotics for me. He says take motrin and get some rest. I wasn't to happy with that advice because I was in a lot of pain.
Monday night I was laying in bed wide awake in pain and frustrated. So I drag myself out of bed and decide I need to do something. I'm standing in the bathroom looking in the mirror and I start to think about my pain and where it is originating. My left ear and the left side of my throat both hurt like crazy. Hmmm I break out the peroxide and pour a little in my ear and let it bubble away. After about 3 minutes I drain my ear take one motrin instead of two and go back to bed. Tuesday morning I feel a bit better still in pain but not quite as bad. so tuesday night hubby helps me and I do the peroxide thing twice. Wednesday morning I feel a whole lot better the swelling is way down I can eat again. So I think it was a really nasty ear infection and the Dr didn't even look at my ears.
It's Thursday and I feel so much better I went to water aerobics tonight. Yay me!! Now I just gotta get my booty in gear and start tracking again. Someone light a fire under me.
Although I didn't track I was careful about my portions and such so I'm hoping for another drop in the numbers. My pants are a bit looser :)
