The Fritos Made Me Do It
Wednesday, October 14, 2015
What goes up must come down right? I had a pretty great week last week and now I'm sliding downward. That's life, ride the waves, blog about the good, bad and the ugly.
This has been the worst allergy season for me yet. I've been through a few OTC meds and have been eating everything in sight the past two days. Whenever I have any kind of upper respiratory or sinus thing, I become RAVENOUS and nothing fills me up. DH has been buying treats lately which has not helped. UGH!
I finally went to the doctor today and he confirmed a sinus infection. After I finish these meds, I'm going to schedule a blood test to find out my allergies. I need to put a stop to this.
I missed lunch by going to the doctor so I came home sneezing and ravenous. I ate leftover tortellini followed by two cheese sticks, followed by a large piece of Portillo's chocolate cake DH bought yesterday, followed by half a large bag of Fritos while watching NCIS reruns.
STOP THE INSANITY!!!
A little while ago, I got a big glass of ice water, did a few jumping jacks in between sets of upper body strength moves for ten minutes.
Back when there used to be Spark radio, I heard Chris Downey talk about getting out of a slump by committing a small act of power like going for a short walk, getting a piece of fruit etc to get yourself back in a healthy frame of mind. That has stayed with me and served me well on many occasion.
I'm closing in on three years of maintenance so I am determined not to get sidelined!
