So it is official I have bronchitis again. Went to the Dr. Lady today and got an inhaler (breathing is important) and some special cough medicine. Tonight I will be able to sleep. Good news!

Bad news I am out from work for the rest of the week. I tried going back to work today, but after two hours my boss told me to go home and suggested I get a Dr apt. As my cough sounded horrible. She is always right!
I hate going to the doctors...but they always give me meds that do help make me feel better. So I called and the apt that was available was not til the eve at 6:45pm. I am glad I went. She took a listen to my lungs agreed with me that I could not really breathe, and gave me a breathing treatment. My first! Anyhow she did not want to put me on antibiotics as I have been on them recently (bout of bronchitis one) and she felt that would destroy my already fragile immune system. I listen to her cause she is smart and went to school way to long for me not to listen.

As far as low carb. Fiance is cooking and he actually buys out.......then heats so a non low carb day. Hoping I have strength enough tomorrow to get back into cooking and low carb. I hate taking a day off....but today was one of those days.

Change of plans.....

So I am still sick, and I am home, bored and feeling like carp. I have been surfing the blogging world and doing something I have not had much of a chance to do....catch up and reading new blogs that are low carb related. There is so much awesome low carbing people out there! Makes me smile! Wish they were all my neighbors! lol

So while reading about fellow low carbers strengths and ideas, I to had an idea. Since I have PCOS and at the moment kinda still in denial that I have PCOS and will not follow up with my doc about it. I know I need to......she offered medicine to me.....but I declined and decided to self treat through my diet and exercise. She was ok with this. I think I need to make a follow up apt. She will be proud with my weight loss. But I hate going to the Dr's! I am from a large family and the only reason you went to the Dr's is if you were broken or bleeding. My mom is a Nurse so she nursed us all back into health for all the minor things.

Oh yeah....went off on a tangine......My new idea is (it is so simple) is to keep low carbing simple. No more frankinfood for a few weeks, though I love my thinkthin bars, Atkins chocolate bars and my low carb dream fields pasta, and low carb tortillas, and sugar free candy...I having a feeling my favorite friends are keeping me back.

I am going to go back to 20 net carbs on "real" foods. This will be a challenge for me, because my days I look back are made up of frankin foods. Low carb shakes, and bars and always have low carb tortillas.......those make eating low carb bearable in the beginning for me. But I am tired of the slow weight loss. Though I am fighting against my body (anyone with PCOS can tell ya!) I know eventually my body and I will see eye to eye. WHooosh.......then all my extra weight will be gone. That is the plan anyways :)

Sick again!

So I caught the bug AGAIN!!!!

Ahhhhh I sorry to vent but I am sick of being sick. I have a cold again and I am praying it does not turn into bronchitis like the time before. I am making my vitamin smoothies and just taking enough medicine to breathe.

Oh yeah I been sick since wed and I was guzzling cough syrup….just to find out it has sugar in it. The oddest things you would never think about that you may take everyday may have sugar in it!!!! So I am sure my weight loss will be nil, and I hope I did not gain. Just a quick update, I am burying myself in tissue again.
