So Damn Close....

I jinxed myself last week I was thinking hmmm well winter is almost over and I've done pretty good this year I usually end up with a few cases of Strep or Bronchitis but nope I have been good well screw me for thinking that I woke up yesterday morning with a stuff nose and a headache from hell..I have that one nostril stuffy thing going on I don't know if its a cold or a sinus infection but whatever it is I want it gone just as fast as it reared its ugly lil head..As hard as I have tried I can't breathe through my mouth when I sleep if I have to I end up not sleeping its irritating to say the least so not much has changed in the sleep department lately...I haven't been really hungry lately how can I be when I can't taste what I am eating or smell it(odd habit I always smell my food before I eat it I don't stick the plate up under my nose or anything like that )..I have been doing good about eating breakfast in the morning its usually shredded wheat, some yogurt or a muffin with some water or tea.

I am doing good on the no sweets thing so far and still no soda...I have been reading weight-loss magazines left and right just seeing what is out there and what people are doing and saying I have a slew of questions I will post in my next post tomorrow maybe all you lovely women who have had luck can answer some of these questions...I still haven't finished You On A Diet yet I need to strap myself down and finish this book everytime I get into it something seems to come along and take my attention away from itI am about half way though it now and so far I am really enjoying it...Man my nose is running like a leaky faucet with no off knob..my leg is healing nicely the hole is now just about closed up and back to being flush with the rest of my leg now all I have to do is wait for the skin to start healing and we are on our way..Well I hope everyone is doing good and had a good weekend....

Awwww, sorry to hear you are getting sick, I had that sinus cold crap a month ago. I feel your pain.

Hopefully you won't mind a guy perspective on dieting. I am on a weight loss program myself. Best I can tell you about dieting is to not think of it as a “diet”. It is all about eating properly: what you eat, amount, and time. Better to have 6 small meals a day, drink 64 oz of water and the killer for me ... exercise! That’s it. And yes an whole hell of a lot easier said than done.

I have a contest with a few people to help motivate one another. Perhaps you would like to contest too. Let me know. Hang tough dear!

Glad to hear that your leg is doing better. You had me worried.

I hope your illness is quick to pass. Get some rest!

Hi Rae, I see you have the dastardly sinus cold going on as well. I have it too. I was doing so good with not getting it, sort of patting myself on the back, but then some things went awry in my life and I think when we are more stressed our immune system shuts down and with most people at my work place sick, well, Ellie got it too. I may have anyway, I will never know, but I was doing really good for at least 3 weeks. I am almost done with it, I think, another couple days of this and I should be on the mend. I am taking the Sinus Tylenol and it helps tremendously, especially the nighttime, so I can sleep! Sleep is the best thing for me when I get it. Wishing you well with your cold and your new way of eating. Much success on it! :)
