Not A Good Day Today

Monday, January 07, 2013

Today's not been a good day for me. I've had the flu since Friday & am getting over it, but now I've gotten sinus drainage at night. When I get that, I get a sore throat because of the nasal drainage that goes down my throat at night. So, today, I woke up with that. I went to Wal-Mart to get some tea & coffee, & I went without eating breakfast. Needless to say, I stopped at McDonald's & got a McRib sandwich with a large fry & drink along with an extra McRib sandwich. I ate one sandwich on the way home & at home, then the other one for a late lunch. With the spaghetti & meatballs I'll be eating tonight, I've gone over my calorie limit. But that's today. Tomorrow will be better.

    So with you on the flu thing. I just blogged about it too. I just wanted warm Sprite and crackers. Luckily I had some soup made up already in the fridge. We will be back to normal in no time!!!!

    I'm glad you're not being hard on yourself. Beating yourself up makes things worse. Please feel better soon. Drink plenty of fluids and rest as much as you can. The next time you're out (and after you've eaten a good breakfast emoticon ), pick up saline nose mist. It's great for cleansing your mucus membranes and keeps them moist, which protects you from germs and thins out mucus drainage. And at night, elevate your head by stacking a pillow or two under your mattress. This will keep mucus from going down your throat at night. Ok, I'm done. But my inner-nurse popped out and I couldn't keep her quiet. LOL. Best wishes for better days :)

    I got the cold flu just after I got my flu shot. I should of gotten the shot sooner oh well I got the cold flu first and the sinus as you have. The good thing was I got over it before Christmas and now with everyone around me getting it I know that I probably won't get it. I know those comfort foods are calling you, they did me I ate a box of chocolates. It didn't make me feel any better. Now I have decided that instead of chocolates when I get sick I will have a ginger lemon tea with a healthy home made snack that I know what is in it. I found out that most of food we eat is tricking are stomachs into starvation mode so we eat more. I know you will be better tomorrow and that you will get back on track just as I am doing now. So get well. Lots of cheer. emoticon

    You can always alter your dinner a bit to take a little less than you would've taken normally. Any damage control is better than none, right? You'll get 'em tomorrow...make that promise to yourself! :)
