Sniffle, sniffle, snort, hackhackhack

Well, got sick on the way home on Friday, despite having the flu shot. I spent yesterday just stuffing my face, don't ask why. I was just starving all day. Between blowing my nose, nursing the sore throat and the coughing all I could think of was food. So, I ate.

I've been taking up to I guess 20 grams of Vitamin C. Today I've added some EmergenC Immune Defense with Zinc to my tea. I'm just miffed that I've lost the weekend to being sick and snotty. Nothing has gotten done. Well, I was up till midnight on Friday doing laundry anticipating a good weekend free to do what I want.

Another thing I'm experimenting with is fiddling with my calorie levels. Bringing them up to about 20% under my maintenance level for my weight. Of course, eating the way I did yesterday wasn't in the plan. It was the fallout from a week away from the office at a class where I ate at Sonic every lunch. Really crappy. Felt crappy.

The mental part of this is a huge thing to overcome. I hate feeling pressured to lose for the surgery. I want to do it for me and I waffle back and forth between gunning it (and not getting far with eating way too low and exercising way too much) or eating to my heart's content. Truthfully, I've put back on about 5 pounds as of today. I'm chalking a lot of it up to sodium/being sick/etc.. But, no real losses since like Oct.

Not much else happening. Going to give my body a rest so I can get over this cold thing (second one in a month) and get back to life. Gotta get to the store today and stock up for the week. Healthy food, back to normal eating. Being sick sucks. emoticon

    Sometimes getting those flue shots can make you sick for the first few times out. Whatever hit you was probably cause you didn't rest. Take care of yourself & remember we can feed a cold/fever but you will get well soon.

    God bless,

    Glad to see you're using Vitamin C. Now, how about more sleep so your body has a chance of fighting off attack?? You don't want to be sick when it's a go for the surgery. Doesn't that sound funny? someone looking forward to surgery?

    If I've already mentioned it, please just ignore this post!! Check out my new team for eating for health:
