I have another emoticon ear skin emoticon infection. It showed up today after my morning workout on the other ear. I am applying MSM/colloidal silver topically. I am taking garlic capsules. I am hoping that it goes away or at least gets better by tomorrow. If not, I will have to take the dreaded emoticon antibiotics. This sucks. Anyway, I did what my Mom said: I vacummed my room, took apart my bed, and what did I find? Bugs. emoticon They don't match the ones in the pictures for 'bed bugs' but the doctor told me last time, that my infection was caused by a bug bite. Seriously??? emoticon This is what I get for having a cozy bed? Interlopers that don't look like James Bond? I have thrown out my old bed frame skirt. I have vacummed. I have sprinkled baking soda, vacummed again, and sprinkled more baking soda on all my carpet and my bed. I am washing everything in hot water with ammonia and soap. I vacummed every inch of my mattress.

I was so grateful that the health food store was open today. emoticon I thought they might have been closed. But, they were open and had my MSM for sale. I bought the house brand (lets hear it for Elliott's Natural foods in Folsom, CA emoticon )

The only thing about all this that is so frustrating: I was just getting better. I literally just did the first workout for two months. I did not do well on my last round of antibiotics. However, I didn't gain. I have learned a lot about how to deal with it. I take magnesium for stool softener (sorry but its a necessity), I keep calories low, I think that I will do yoga and meditate everyday. I may also go for walks. We haven't seen the mountain lion in a while, I am hoping that he has found a new home, rather than my back yard.

I will still stick with my weight loss plan, its just a different layout (I still hope that I won't need the antibiotics):

1200 calories day
4 meals, 300 calories each.
1 tbsp. coconut oil at each meal.
Probiotic between doses.
Kefir or yogurt everyday.
Walk 1 hour/everyday emoticon
Yoga every other day. emoticon
Healing meditation every day. emoticon
Drink green tea everyday.

    I'm always concerned about bedbugs. They are on the rise and some of the motels here have had them.
