Jan. 27th =( ughhhhhh this cold isn't going away!!

Well last night I thought when I woke up I was going to be fully restored to my health.  Well I was very very wrong.  Last night I got no sleep at all hardly.  I had to keep tossing and turning because I can't breath one bit.  This cold is no fun at all and its starting to ware on me and my dieting.  I am trying so hard to follow during this cold and I have been fairly well.  But you know sometimes there are certain things you just don't wanna eat when your sick.  Plus half the stuff I am trying to eat, doesn't even have a taste right now.  I was going to drink some orange juice because they always say that is good to get vitamin C when you are sick, or so I heard.  But I took one sip and I felt so guilty for having it, I poured it out.  I will admit I had like 1/2 a tsp. of honey today that I mixed with some mustard to make a sauce.  I feel bad enough about that, but it was the only thing that tasted good to me at the moment.

Here is what I ate so far today:

Breakfast- two scrambled eggs, grilled cheese, and water (3/2)

Lunch - 1/2 package of chicken ramen noodles (1/2) I wanted the chicken broth to help with my cold.

Snack - chicken nuggets with some homemade honey mustard (8/2)  This is where I know I went over on the sugar, but nothing tasted good to me and I was starving.

I don't know why, but since I have stayed home from work today since I was feeling more awful then the last couple of days on this cold, I have been more hungry then usual.  Its weird, I thought you wouldn't be hungry when your sick, but me...I am starving.  But maybe its because im bored and I can't sleep.  Well hopefully things will get better tomorrow.

Goodnight !! =)


  1. Hey Girl, I really hope you feel better. Don't worry about going over on the s/c. you just need to get well. Sending you lots of love. :-)

  2. Thank you sooo sooo much Rosalie!! I am trying to get better =) Hopefully soon

  3. Practically all of us have had that awful cold this year, and it seems to linger for at least 3 weeks. I gained three pounds back when I had it, but try to stay as close to the BFC guidelines, so you won't have to spend a month getting rid of unwanted weight gain like I did. My friend says, Oregano oil, internally 1 tsp. and rub on the bottoms of your feet take away a cold. However, I did not try this. When I had my cold I finally went to the health food store and bought a bottle called Bronchial Soothe, an Ivy Leaf Supplement. Helped clear my bronchial passages and it wasn't expensive. Hope you feel better tomorrow. Drink fluids!

  4. Hey Lindsey! I hate getting a cold too, but unfortunately, a cold has to ride its way out and its usually a week. You can take cold medicines to help with symptoms but most health experts will tell you (and i am NO health expert by any means, just a plain old nurse)that it has to take its course. Hang in there girl and do your best but dont beat yourself up, ok? Get better soon! We all love you and want you better again. ((hugs)) Sherri

  5. Thank you Kasey :) I am trying to drink lots of fluids. Today I am just achy like the flu makes you, but at least I can breathe again. My problem is finding something I wanna eat. Its hard, but I am trying to stick with the guidelines, the best I can.
