I Can Breathe!!

Monday, January 28, 2013

Finally!! I am feeling better!!

My allergies and sinus infection are clearing. I am getting my energy back too!

Saturday I took my son's girlfriend's five year old daughter for the day. They were both coming down with sinus issues and my hubby was working so...

We started at the pet store. Spent an hour looking at all sorts of pets - so fun! Then off to Walmart for art supplies and groceries. She played with play dough while I cleaned downstairs. We also played "Pop the Pig" - in Spanish and we took Roxy on a nice long walk.

Saturday night my husband and I went out with a group of friends to the Olive Garden. I ordered the new lighter fare lasagna with chicken(420 cals). It was excellent! I also ate the salad with no dressing and 1/4 of a breadstick with no oil or garlic. Yum!

Sunday morning I woke up and felt great. After breakfast, I got a lot of early spring cleaning done! That made me feel even better! My house is looking good! Then, we went out with another couple to a restaurant that recently reopened. It is on a canal and it was a beautiful day. I had a salad with fresh lobster, shrimp and blue crab (no dressing).

Today I felt even better!! I spent most of my time at work cleaning my office!!

On a side note, I did get an X-ray of my knee last week - had to first per my health insurance. Nothing showed up, I have been waiting for approval - since Friday - on the MRI. My knee still hurts if I run (so I am not). It also hurts and no sounds like sand paper or a bean bag rubbing when I walk upstairs.

I am glad it's not spring, summer or fall - I would be bummed! It's pretty yucky outside right now so it's not bugging me to bad. And, I can walk with no problem so that is what I am doing! I am doing great with my calorie count too!

I hope you are having a terrific week -- if you are in an icy area - be careful!!

    Glad the sinus issues are clearing or have cleared by now!! Great dscipline on your eating. Spending time with a 5 year old can remind us how much fun every day life is! At least it should! Does Roxie like children? Jack does, but he gets tired of them quickly these days! He can jump on the bed to get away from annoying small dogs and tried it with my friend's 5 yo girl and she climbed up with him. He actually let out a big ol' sigh like "well, now that didn't work, drats"! Hope approval for a MRI comes soon. Amazing how a MRI over an Xray can find issues in knees and shoulders! Keep taking it easy until you know. You don't want to make it worse.

    I'm glad you are feeling better!

    It is great the x-rays didn't show anything bad, I hope the MRI will be good too and the knee heals soon.

    Glad to hear you're breathing better again.
    Wow, you do exercise great discipline when out to eat. No dressings, 1/4 bread stick takes discipline. Well done.
