Colds and Carbs and Cortisone and Accordions!

Wednesday, December 12, 2012


Please enjoy the above link. It has nothing to do with this blog. Expect this is my chance to share my fantasy of learning how to play the accordion.

Now to the real business:

I have a cold. A knock you off your feet cold with fever, body aches, cough.. you know the drill. I have been home most of the week and my eating has been off. WAY OFF.

I've had almost no appetite, but when I have eaten, its been carbs. Soups and crackers... then more crackers.. then cheese toast, more crackers, more bread. The craving for carbs has been CRAZY.. almost scary. I can't really figure out where that came from... or if it has anything to do with being sick!

I haven't been to the gym either.

I am dreading weighing in and may do it tomorrow, instead of Friday, just to get it over with. Ugh.

I finally went to the doctor today and asked for a cortisone shot. Cortisone shots are like my miracle cure for colds and respiratory infections. I'm already feeling better, but still rough around the edges.

I haven't felt like sparkin either... and that's not a good thing at all! I need you people!

I'm ready to get back to my routine. I need to get well and get back at it. But first I know I need to get well and understand that doesn't mean I have an excuse to eat crappy!

Ok.. tomorrow, I am tracking my food. May not exercise, but will be tracking my food and staying on point with that!

I have NO musical talent whatsoever. But a girl can dream right?

PS: This blog was not written under the influence... ok.. maybe I just had a dose of cough syrup.

    I've been sick all week too...no exercise at all. (Eating has been okay, though. Glad you're starting to feel better. No matter what the scale says, just keep going. Don't let one bad week lead to two bad weeks!

    At least take a jaunty walk around the inside of your house a few times per day... GOYAAM, Mupp. I'm glad you're feeling better, and hope it's 100% soon.

    I feel pretty crappy today, and don't even have a cold excuse. That is how it is.
