Day 4-7: NYE Challenge

Thursday, October 11, 2012

So...I have been really sick! I have taken 3 days off, and am sort of off today too, working from home. I have only been sick once in the last 5 years, where I really needed time off. I had salmonella poisoning.

Anyhow, I have still been tracking and trying to get as much water, veggies, apples, and salt in my diet as I can. I know the salt seems weird, but my body was draining the fluids so for one day, I had popcorn (salt) and that helped tremendously! I had made my own chicken soup in the crock pot. Thank goodness I had two frozen chicken breasts, some potatoes, carrots, bell peppers and a bay leaf. I also added salt and pepper and a little chili powder. So below is what I have pretty much been eating the last few days.


Drinking this throughout the day:

Chicken Soup made in the crock pot...usually eating this for lunch and/or dinner:

I had the lo-carb cuc sandwich when I was sick of soup...

My throat was sore and cured it with hot tea, but sometimes that hurt. So I had these mini Frozen Greek Yogurts, 100 calories each and had protein too!

When the sick breath was much too much, I had a couple of these left over mints from the bachlorette party. They looked better than they taste!

I am realizing how much work it is to do a photo blog, no wonder the challenges are only ONE week at a time! Duh! So...I think after this week...I am going to write a daily blog of how things went for the day, how I feel with my weight loss progress, mindset and attitude, and anything else I feel like writing. I am just going to make sure I post my calories in my status updates or my blog and that I have a new entry once each day until NYE. If I am so inclined, I will take a photo of my food! LOL!

Hope you all don't get the flu, it's horrible. Stay healthy and eat your apples!
