I woke up sick in the middle of the night and was miserable for a few hours, coughing and sneezing and having a bit of digestive upset (not vomiting, thank goodness!). I spent today feeling pretty lousy (sore throat, headache, muscle aches) which was depressing because I had plans to get outside and work in the yard and then take a nice long walk. Instead I laid on the couch watching Animal Planet just waiting for it to be time to pick up my daughter from school. What a yucky day! I did manage to throw some chicken thighs in the oven to roast and then make some nourishing homemade chicken soup for our dinner tonight. I scooped mine out before adding the noodles for the rest of the family. It was really good, and with some Tylenol I feel slightly better.
Today I had:
plain tea, a soft boiled egg, avocado, a Clementine
half a banana
lots of water with lemon slices in it
key lime yogurt
2 roasted chicken thighs (with the skin)
sugar free pudding cup
a grande iced green tea lemonade, no syrup, from Starbucks while I waited for my daughter at dance school
large bowl of chicken soup with onion, celery, carrots, and garlic in the broth. Extra chicken!
I am super tired and will probably go to bed early tonight. I didn't get in much movement, but I can tell I need rest more than anything right now. Hopefully this sickness won't last long.
I am 38 years old, female, a degree-holding stay-at-home-mom, and I weigh 278 pounds. I have been obese for ten years now. Time to get out of this fat prison I have made for myself.
--This is the original introduction I wrote when I first started this blog in 2007. I leave it as a reminder to myself of where I came from. Currently, I am 46 years old and weigh significantly less...see the blog for details. I lost 103 pounds, then had a partial regain, and am once again working at weight loss and better health.
