not the flu

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Went to the clinic today and I have bad sinus infection. They gave me steroid shot and prescription for antibiotics. I'm hoping to feel better by tomorrow.

Flu

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Well I spoke too soon. I have the flu!!! So why I had been feeling so yucky lately. Think I may have caught it when I went with hubby to the VA clinic...and strangely I had the flu shot back in October so hopefully this won't be too bad. Back to bed now.

    So sorry VON! I got the shot and the flu this year too. Rest up, catch up on tv and reading, and drink lots of fluids.

    There are a couple of different strains of the flu floating about this year in CA. Our youngest granddaughter came down with the norovirus, I think is what the doctor called it. Of course, the flu shot this year doesn't address that virus. She was well in two days, I hope you have a quick recovery too.

Better Day

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Well have had a better day today. I think the front that was causing me so much pain has pushed in and it has been pouring all day but I don't ache near as bad. We drove over to Hot Springs today to Sam's Club as we had to get prescription for hubby and it is cheaper there..It takes a chunk of time out of our day but at least I got some good walking in there and here at home inside today..Also have eaten better today. I got really sick last night and had to spend time in the bathroom so could of been I had a little bug yesterday..we had eaten out at my sister's on Sunday and everytime I eat out somewhere I get sick so probably part of the cause of feeling so yucky yesterday.
I just have to remember I have my good and bad days and to take them in hand and do what I can each day.

    Oh, it really does sound like you might have had a bug. And certainly that front coming through probably didn't help. But even though yesterday was rough you got some walking in today, I think that is really good, you are making the best of the situation!

Rolling stone gather's no moss

Monday, February 11, 2013



I've felt like a lump log today and have gathered moss..I just wish that moss was in my joints today to cushion them. This has been one of the worst days I've had in some time. Weather change has brought it on and having the back problems I've had this past week hasn't helped. My think every joint in my body has ached today. One thing is we pulled off the heavy comforter and put on a lighter quilt and think I just got too cold last night. I woke up freezing and haven't warmed up any today..just one of those crabby days for me...Didn't get much of a walk in so gathered more moss today.

Assignment 7

Sunday, February 10, 2013

Assignment 7 for the 5% challenge is to do my body measurements.

From the last time I had done this at the end of the fall challenge I have:
Weight: gained 5lbs now 195
Measurements of body parts: I have gained almost an inch in most body parts but my thighs and upper arms and they have remained the same.

So this tells me that I need to crack down and really work at this and to quit procrastinating.

I have been eating less meat wheich is good because i was going over my serving size add a little walking only 15 mins is needed and make sure to get your sleep or you won't lose. emoticon emoticon

    I know I have gained weight and inches as well. The next challenge should be starting soon, and there is no reason we can't lose the excess again. I know I am not waiting for the challenge to start either, to get back on track.
