Been Sick...

This week I caught a virus from a person I sat next to at church last week. She was blowing her nose a lot, and when she started coughing during the service I knew I was in trouble. I could hear the congestion as I was thinking, "ugh, you should have stayed home!" I tried not to breathe but alas, the germs got to me anyway. So I've spent the week going from what felt like a mild tickle in my throat and sneezing, to full blown miserable cold symptoms. Today I think I am past the worst of it but am still blowing my nose and coughing a bit. Should feel better soon, I think!

Now that the weather is getting a little better, I'm going to start walking every day outside. Lately I've only walked once in awhile when it's not cold and yucky out. I've had my son and daughter walking the dogs more than I have walked them myself, but I am ready to get back out there and move. My diet continues to be the same: lower carb, not counting, smaller portions. Nothing new and exciting here, not even a weigh in. Just wanted to give a short update and say hello. Sorry so boring!

How often will you weigh in now?

oh probably next week. I just figure my weight wouldn't tell me much right now since I've been sick, so I am either artificially up or down a few. Will wait til I am all better!

what's a typical menu look like when you're sick?

Ugh! I wish sick people would stay home. Glad you are starting to feel better! Walking in spring is simply the best, isn't it?

I still try to stay lower carb. I keep soups in the freezer in single portion size baggies so I thaw those. I also eat lower carb canned soups and sometimes scrambled eggs. I have a protein fruit drink I have when I feel like I just can't eat something solid. Lots of tea with lemon, a few oranges, and a few carbier things that seem to settle my stomach like a small baked potato or a piece of toast. Those are pretty much my go-to foods when I am not feeling well.

Right? I didn't go to church sick. I keep my germs at home and wish others would too!

Lynn, I got very sick a few weeks ago... It started with a scratchy throat, and then turned in to a flu. I was down on my back in bed freezing with a fever for three days... I was dizzy and could not eat... I got up on the forth day and went to work.

It's going around....

Anyway, I see you are going low carbohydrate... Check out Stephanie the keto person. Check out the video, "Butter makes your pants fall off." Yep, eating lots of fat is good for you....

It has been a life saver for me I am back down to 194 pounds. I have lost over five inches with No extreme hunger to deal with ...

Fat speeds up the metabolism of fat...

Also, check out making Milk Kefir. I can tell you talk about something that squashes hunger, Kefir does just that.

It's easy to make at home. Just use whole milk, and kefir grains. Ferment in a glass jar, and drink...
