The cough that doesn't sleep...

*Hack, hack... hack, hack*

I'm quickly approaching the two week mark...of this most offending foe: the cough.

Doc thinks it's adult-onset allergies. I've started a regimen of Claritin, steroid nasal spray, cough suppressant, cough drops, and yet the cough remains. It could take up to a week to really feel improvement, if it is in fact an allergy related cough. So, I bide my time *hack, hack* and pray that the doctor is right *hack, hack* so I can exercise the way I want to again *hack, hack, hack, hack*

Until then, I'm counting on my diligence in meal planning to keep my momentum going. I've only taken one cheat meal (didn't even go 200 calories over...not bad), and I am finding that I am feeling fuller faster during meals. Didn't expect that - I'm really pleased.

    When we have a cough that is dry and not productive (no phlem) we use the old grandma cure... douse a washcloth/rag in rubbing alcohol and tie/pin it around the neck. Usually works in a matter of minutes. be careful on sensitive skin. might need to use vasoline to protect skin
