A Little Update

I am wiped out exhausted and it's only 1pm!

I was up most of the night with my sick daughter. Then in the morning I was on the phone with nurses and the insurance company since the doctor's office is closed on the weekend and I needed the okay to take her to urgent care. Took her in, got the diagnosis (sinus infection again) and then went to the pharmacy for medications. Home now with an irritable, tired, cranky little girl. Poor little thing just needs snuggles!

I had an egg white omelet for breakfast filled with spinach, mushrooms, green onions, tomatoes, and light cheddar and a cup of coffee with Splenda and half & half. I have a headache from lack of sleep and the scale was back up a pound to 181 this morning which is slightly irritating since I have been on plan all week and walking daily, but I figure it's from stress and lack of sleep.

Have a great weekend and if it's sunny, get outside for a bit! It'll do you good.

I hope your daughter feels better. It is so hard to see kids sick. :(

I agree the lack of sleep and likely the lack of proper hydration is telling a different story than the truth. You will see the scale drop soon!

Poor thing- I hope she feels better soon.

I did indeed get outside on this beautiful day. I was wonderful. :-)

As a sinusitis sufferer, I can say it's the worst feeling. I can also suggest looking into the relation between sinus infections and too much yeast/candida in her digestive system (colon). Maybe look into Elaine Gottschall's book/research, the specific carbohydrate diet or SCD. Sinus infections can be cured through nutrition, especially recurring ones. Good luck.

I hate sinus infections it always means i'll get a chest infection too!
Hope she's feeling better soon and i'm sure a few hugs will help as well :)
Stay strong kiddo!!

I just went through that no results for watching food intake and had carbs because of that and other stress. This morning the scale was down 2 pounds and I can't help but wonder how much more it would have been if I had behaved. Can't wait to hear what your new number is!

You will be seeing a GOOD sized drop on the scale in a day or so~ Hope your daughter is better.
