Sick

My little girl is all better and back to school, but now I am the one who's sick. Achy, tired, sore throat, sniffles, bit of a stomachache. Ugh. I so do not need this right now. I want to go to bed and sleep a few hours but my brain just won't turn off for me to take a nap. The dog is getting into everything too. I need to take her out to play and run.

So far I am staying on plan still. I made myself a low carb biscuit sandwich this morning from a biscuit made of a packet of Medifast chicken soup, some scrambled egg beaters, a Morningstar Farms sausage patty, and a slice of low fat cheese. That, with some sugar free vanilla coffee and some Sunrise Orange Crystal Light, felt like a nice comforting breakfast without the carbs and grease of the usual breakfast biscuit.

Extra fluids, rest, and chicken soup are in my plans for today. I am stressed out due to personal stuff, and I think my stress level contributed to my getting sick.

Still weighing 192 and hoping to see that go down this week.

Hope you'll feel better soon!

(I assembled some information on dieting and the immune system, such as: Omega 3 fatty acids may reduce your immune system (try adding vitamin E to your nutrition plan, the study recommended at least 100mg/day), low-carb may be bad for the immune system unless there is enough protein going around etc. It's an interesting topic to look into.)

Oh, and I hope your stress will fade fast.
