Happy Tuesday!  Here’s to another check-in for me that isn’t really much of a check-in, as I’m still weightless.  🙂  (That sounds much less revolting than “scale-free”.)  But as far as my behaviors go…

Yesterday was a wash.  It started out great but went downhill rapidly at the hands of another massive allergy attack.  This one was not prompted by Aleve, but the symptoms and progression were exactly the same.  I can only conclude that it was the ibuprofen, which is very disturbing.  I am, however, thinking it might not be an allergic reaction so much as that the only think keeping my sinuses from draining is massive swelling, and when I take the NSAID it reduces that swelling, so…I don’t know though.  It is something I am going to have to talk to my doctor about.

Meanwhile, between the attack and the medication for the attack, which knocks me out, I got no exercise yesterday.  My eating was good though.  Not perfect, but very very good.  All in all, it was a good first day; the areas in which I slipped were areas I couldn’t really control. But I do feel that the rug has been yanked out from under me…so I’m trying again today to get off on the right foot.  🙂

Today is going to be difficult; I’m starving, which is something that always seems to happen when that medication wears off.  So I’m trying to exercise willpower; wish me luck.  🙂

My big focus for today is to drink plenty of water; I’ve been slipping in that area and that’s an important one, particularly in this heat.  If I can get all my water in and not eat a ton of junk, I will count it as a good day.  The rest will follow at its own pace.  I did start the day with yoga, so I feel good about that.  (Though I was awake from 4:30 on, so I may crash later.)

And that’s about it for me.  Tonight I have to deal with more of the paint selection process, try to get my walk in and hopefully do some cleaning and decluttering – this has to be done before the weekend so DH can paint without huge piles of stuff in his way.

I hope everyone has a great day and a great week.  And I’m still plugging away at work…but feel free to distract me if it seems warranted.  🙂  (That one’s for you, MizFit!)
