Stupid allergies!

Monday, February 27, 2012

I have been off track for the last week.

Follow-up: I went to the doctor and was indeed diagnosed with exercise induced asthma thanks to my newly found allergies. I have no insurance, so my doctor had me fill out papers for a program from Merck that will provide my medications (An inhaler, singualair, Nasonex) for free. I still haven't heard back from them or received any medication. Last week I got really sick. My head hurt, had a horrible runny nose and head congestion. At first I thought I was getting the flu, but it turns out it's my horrid allergies! I found some really, old, nasonex of mine in the medicine cabinet and I have taken a few of my son's singulair to feel better. (I have to get my singulair soon so I can replace my son's meds.) I am doing better though I still have the runny nose and occasional headache. Having no insurance and being "poor" sucks!

So for most of last week I did nothing. I didn't track my food most days and because I felt bad I ate comfort foods. I haven't weighed because I am sure I gained. I am getting back on track today and making sure I run and do 30 Day shred, and stick to my diet so that I can get below 220 before Friday.

Hoping that I can get my motivation back. I have been sooooo unmotivated. I have noticed my lack of motivation has been in line with my lax in reading weight loss themed books, stories, and magazines. Need to find some on my Kindle today!

I am also starting my new job hunt. Year #3 trying to get a teaching job. WIsh me luck!

Have a great day Sparkers!

    Acupuncture cleared my sinuses in 4 visits, from having been completely stuffed (unmoving kind of stuffed!) for 2 months. That was after 2 rounds of antibiotics failed to help. I don't know if you're the type to go for that but I absolutely loved it and felt fantastic all around. It was the nicest half hour of my week!

    I am praying that you get your meds approved soon!
