Week 6 gain

Thursday, February 09, 2012

This week sucked. It started out with the arrival of my monthly cycle. Then ended with a big family party to celebrate my brother's new son.

I showed a 3.8 pound gain on the scales. Putting me at 177.2.

I'm working to get that off, but starting out this week with a virus. I have a headache, swollen sinuses and red eyes. My throat is a little scratchy and my hubby says I have bad breath like I have strep.

He gave me the bug and had bad breath while sick and no strep, so I'm going to ride this out unless I feel like I need an antibiotic.

Another stressor this week has been keeping my school age kids home. They have varying degrees of this bug, and so they aren't well enough for school. It's hard to take care of them and myself when I have zero energy.

Here's hoping next week weigh in is much better. I'm shooting for 4 or more pounds to get rid of this weeks gain and put me in the green. :D

Hopefully the reduced appetite, from being ill, works in my favor.
