Yep. That's right. I had a very successful weigh in on Monday! 7 pounds gone. Bam. emoticon If you read my last blog, you know that Monday was my weigh in, in which I needed to demonstrate the ability to loose to get a discount on my insurance. So Monday was great. The rest of the week, not so good.

Luke and I both have sinus infections.... When I get a sinus infection it triggers a flair up of my Trigeminal Neuralgia which means pain in the left side of my face. Who knows what happens when I hurt. That's right. I eat. Not veggies either. I am on steroids and antibiotics so hopefully will be back on the mend soon.

Unfortunately We lost our little ferret Thursday morning.... I was so glad I was home when my daughter found him. Luckily he died peacefully in his sleep. We had him for 7 1/2 years. He was a good little thing. So needless to say we are grieving. emoticon

I did manage a small bike ride emoticon at a nearby state park today. I went with my DH and it was the first time I took my mountain bike on mountain trails. Must say I prefer the rail trails. I like long distance flat. About 3/4 of the way through I was sitting back too far on my comfy seat..... so the seat tilted back and DH tried to readjust it. Back on the bike, only to have it tilt up again. I'm sure I don't have to tell you all how terribly uncomfortable that seat was pointed up.... Why do they put a pointed seat on a bike anyway???? We did have a nice enjoyable picnic lunch. Best emoticon PBJ I have ever had. emoticon
So now, I'm sparking and watching undercover boss. I have a little bit of a fever tonight and probably overdid it today. Time for some rest. emoticon

    I am happy to see another successful biker! Be careful out there! I fell off my bike last week (blog posted with details) and do not want you to suffer the same thing. Forget those rough trails! After falling on the rail trail, there would be now way I would do a rough trail...just my opinion! emoticon on the 7 pounds! emoticon emoticon
    Hope you feel better soon on the sinus infection! Have you ever tried Neilmed Sinus Rinse? I use it all year long and it keeps my sinuses from getting the infections. I used to get them 2x a year until I used it! emoticon
