I have the worst cold I have had in years. In 1 1/2 days I've used 2 boxes of kleenex ( good thing we buy big packages of them ) I can't taste anything yet I am hungry. Running a low grade fever. I can't lay down because then I can't breath at all. Spent last night sitting up in my chair in the living room, napping for 30 minutes, smoking and coughing and sneezing for the next 1/2 hour. Today is no better so I guess it's another night in the chair. It isn't even a recliner!!! I just know I picked this up last Thursday when I went to the hospital for an appointment.

On the plus side, until today I managed to walk 5 days in a row. Today I just decided to take an off day. Hopefully I can get back to it tomorrow. I am using my WATP DVD and can get about 1/2 mile into it, 10 - 15 minutes. It's not much but a big step up for me.

I gained 2 lbs this past week. COOKIES> They are EVIL. Especially the chocolate ones. WHile sick, so far, I am not interested in them.

Good luck to everyone this week and have a good time doing it.

    You need a rest day once in a while, especially when you are ill.

    ah Gini,
I hope you feel better very soon, sounds like you need a great big bowl of home made chicken soup and a big chug of nyquil and a decongesant and a great nights sleep..... then a nice warm cozy hug and a little hand holding and good old movie watching break.
I am so proud of you for walking, your doing great! Don't let your mind tell you otherwise... emoticon Hang in there and life will definitely improve. Hugs Ginilee!!!

    Sorry to hear that you are sick :( Never any fun. Cookies are addictive, and like cigarettes, quitting is easiest if it starts at the store. Once they are in the house you have that many more choices to make. I shouldn't talk, I got my chocolate fix in yesterday by a teaspoon full of mini-chocolate chips. It's so hard to give up sweets! emoticon
