No time to proofread. If I typed something poorly, please read what I MEANT to say. LOL
UGH! Well, these meds my doctor recommended (Clariton or a generic equivalent) are helping my runny/stuffy nose, but not the sinus pressure or headache at all. Doc doesn't want me taking the other multi-symptom stuff I had that DID work, but that she agreed may have messed up my last blood test for cholesterol and triglycerides. But there are people a lot sicker than I am, so I'm also counting my blessings that I don't have something worse than seasonal allergies.
Mai, I agree with you that the muffin omelets are good, but that omelets made in a skillet are better. Sometimes I don't have time to cook omelets from scratch in the morning, so muffin omelets are a good alternative for me. Congrats on doing well on your food yesterday, but I'm very sorry to hear you are stressed and depressed due to sleep deprivation. I was lucky to not have that problem with my kids, so have no advice, but I'm sure some other memebers here will have some ideas.
Tunnrida, welcome! So glad to read that you got a new rush of positive energy after your plateau. Best wishes on your goals.
Quinn, great job back on the wagon!! My live-in GD and her Mom did the FAFSA application online but hit a snafu with that random proof of financial status for which they were selected. So she has to gather some stuff to mail in. I'm glad I'm just on the sidelines and not having to deal with it myself. I hope you got rid of your horrible headache and enjoyed your walk!
mhibdon, welcome back!!! You are one busy lady! Glad you're doing better after all those ailments! Big hug to ya!
Ama, OMG, choking is soooo scary! Glad DS is OK! I hope you had a satisfying workday getting caught up. Wow, glowing Tuesday report! Major kudos on only a cookie and half a root beer with those strict forbidden foods!
Ruby, anyone who says they never have cooking mistakes is lying. LOL
Luv, you're right. Mikes computer problems are all payback for cyberpushing you and Quinn around. LOL Congrats on your great food achievements so far this week! Not sure about why tea in the evening is a caution for you. Are you talking about the English MEAL tea as in "high tea" or tea that you drink? I find many of the teas I drink also come in decaf and are just as delicious. I just have to not drink so much that I have to keep getting up for extra potty trips during the night. Congrats on your walk. I haven't worked up to that yet today--hoping to get in in later.
Oh, tips on water that I saw on that talk show "The Doctors" on TV Monday and Tuesday:
1. Dr. Travis Stork said drinking ice water can burn up to 500 more calories more per week than room temperature or hot water. I count my decaf iced tea as water and even my Crystal Light beverage.
2. A lady on yesterday's episode(don't know whether she was a health or fitness professional) was talking about how drinking 64 oz. per day helps speed up our metabolism. She said that being only two percent dehydrated can slow down our metabolism and signal the body to start storing fat.
Deborah, best wishes on the PMS issues. I went through menopause without hormone replacement or any meds and DH was ready to send me to the asylum. LOL
Nobe, so sorry you're still sick. Don't be concerned about catching up with the posts. Aw, I hope you find a more satisfactory place of employment. Nice job on your goals.
Jho, twice as much sky blue as red in your Tusday report. Congrats on that.
Congrats on your controlled cheat. I'm so bad: I don't go to movies often, but when I do I smuggle in an unsweetened iced tea, unsalted almonds, and sugar free dark chocolate. But I LOVE those things so it's no sacrifice. I rationalize that I'm not cheating the movie theater because I wouldn't pay the ridiculously high prices our theaters here charge for snacks. It's true that I won't. I also smuggle in pretzels, sweet treats, and drinks for my grandkids. Aw, sorry DD is still miserable even with the Orajel. I'm a whimp. I do not like the burn from exercise.
Crazigerl and Nobe: you are NOT bad Internet friends! Some of us just have more computer time than others; and some have other things they need to or would rather do and that's OK, too. Everyone is quite welcome here regardless of his/her level of yackiness.
Crazigerl, big gentle hugs to your dog. Wishing her comfort. I had my dog for 14 1/2 years and he, too, was my children's protector. Congrats on your good calorie and water day.
Boo, great job Monday and Tuesday. Thanks for your well wishes to get over this stupid seasonal allergy attack.
Hope, you're on your way to an all green food and fitness week! Congratulation on a job well done! OMG, thanks for your kind words, the prayer, and well wishes.
It's not nearly as bad as the others who have a stomach virus and fibromyalgia, knee ailments and other PITAs.
Mike, you, too, had more green than red in your Tuesday report. Congrats on that.
Terri, I did that mile of exercise when my head and sinus pressure was relieved somewhat, but quit when I wussed out. But I'll take all the praise I can get. LOL Not exaggerating, I've used the Dreamfields pasta several times to serve to guests and not even one person could tell it was low effective carb because it tastes exactly like regular pasta. Only the manufacturing process, not the ingredients, is different. Don't tell BF until AFTER he compliments you on your fantastic mac & cheese, or lasagna, macaroni salad, spaghetti, linguine, etc. My Walmart doesn't carry it, but our Kroger and Meijer's does. OMG, your 58.3 net weight loss is such a wonderful, admirable achievment. I wanna be like YOU when I "grow up!" Oh, berries are #3 in Dr. Travis Stork's list of the top five foods for weight loss, specifically belly fat if you have any of that. Pass me some of your dark chocolate--that's great food and so yumy!
April, HONESTLY, I've served Dreamfields to a BUNCH of people without them knowing it. Only the manufacturing process, not the ingredients, is different. It tastes EXACTLY like regular pasta. Like I told Terri, make it and then wait until AFTER DH compliments you on your pasta dish to confess it's low effective carb. Be like my late mother-in-law who at almost 80 told me, "SURE, he tells me what to do....and then I turn around and do whatever I damned well please." LOL I have got to go pick up my high school grandkids. They get out at 2:15 but I have to be there 1/2 hour early to get a decent parking spot. With no school busses, one of the less desirable parking spaces can cause it to take up to FORTY MINUTES to get out of the parking lot.
