Ugh. I feel like crap.

Yesterday and Today I have felt horrible. Emotionally and Physically. My sinuses are acting up big time. I made my lentil sloppy joes extra spicy to help, but it was only a temporary fix. I took some Sudafed, and still am stopped up. I could deal if it was on both sides, but just one side of my face feels puffy and sore. I've been making my own excuses about not going outside to walk, I just feel horrible though. I need to suck it up and do it anyway though.
Emotionally, I've been doubting myself. Obsessing if you will if I'm on the right diet plan. Too many carbs? not enough protein? Doesn't help that Dylan's 15 year old cat has stopped using the litter box. I can't say too much, because I don't want a cat to be the wedge that is driven between Dylan and me, especially in this very stressful time.
Also, I watched a documentary called Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. It's about this Aussie guy with an disease that gives him hives when he comes into contact with just about anything. He treated himself with juicing for 60 days. Lost a ton of weight, and was able to get off his meds. Very inspiring, and I kinda want to try it out. I found a used juicer for $20. Thinking about buying it and when I find a job or get my job back in November, giving it a try.
Anyone have any experience with juicing? Thoughts, opinions, and experiences? I would never do it as long as he did, but I am interested in at least trying it. Might be a way I could stomach raw vegetables that I can't stomach otherwise.
As far the protein situation goes, thanks for the suggestions. Eggs and ground meat have been the biggest contributors because they are fairly cheap. Eggs especially. We had lentil sloppy joes which has beef and lentils in it. My only gripe is that with beans, you pretty much have a 1:1 carb protein ratio, so if you are trying to bulk protein, you might unintentionally bulk carbs. Minor, but just has always irked me.
