These past few days have been crazy. I helped out with a mass teambuilding training on wednesday and then yesterday and today I've been in class. Feeling a little jittery now. I think its all of the coffee I've been consuming lately. I need to give it up...

Still not feeling well . May call in sick tomorrow. Will check in throughout the day from home if I do.

I started a bootcamp challenge my friend talked me into on Saturday. All we did for the 1st day is do measurements and some walking. Not bad but I thing their calculations of my body fat were wrong They claim I am 42% body fat but my online assessment said it's more like 36%. Neither one is good but I like my numbers better. They say next week we start the hard stuff. I am a little scared but will complete the challenge since my friend shelled out 30 bucks for me to go. Oh well...will keep you all updated on my progress.

I haven't forgot about the pic. I will get around to it soon

Stayed out of work yesterday but here today trying to make it. I have class tomorrow so I came in to prepare for that. I just looked on my schedule and i also have 2 classes next week that I haven't prepared for either so I guess I will work on that today as well. Tummy and head still not feeling well at all. I have narrowed it down to 3 things but I am not too happy with any of them...
  1. Blood Sugar out of wack
  2. Reaction to too much Splenda
  3. Sinus issues
Of course I have not been eating or taking my meds like I am supposed to so I have no excuse to complain. I have been taking my metformin correctly for the past couple of days so I am not sure what is going on. I ran out of my sinus meds so I am going to get my prescriptions refilled today.

I don't have any real plans for Valentines day but I am sure Mr. C will want to do something. We are planning to go to a concern in Charlotte this weekend so as far as I am concerned that is my valentines. We will see what he comes up with...

Hey There Miss Nkechi,

I'm sorry to see you aren't feeling well. Sending prayers you will find the problem(s) and be able to address them/it quickly.

I hated doing the measurements when I first started working out but it was interesting to see.

Thanks for dropping by my journal and encouraging me, I appreciate it.
Get well

Hello Tamika! Thanks for stopping by. I actually feel a little better today. I think my sister brought her germs from her students home with her and keeps coming around to infect everybody . She reported that my niece threw up twice last night and although I haven't I felt like it several times these past few days. The headache is almost gone but still there.

Eating is not good . Ate pizza and breadsticks last night with Mr. C. I really need to get it together. I am debating on whether or not I am going to bootcamp this weekend because of the concert this weekend but we will see. I will decide about going at the last minute of course. I really don't want to be tired at the concert. I already know I am going to miss a day next month because I have a class at the community college (that I really don't want to do). I will work it out as always though.

It's raining today and I had to run from the building to my office. I am counting that as my exercise for today . I haven't eaten anything (just coffee with splenda and creamer) so I haven't messed up yet. I have some wings in the fridge that I am going to eat for lunch but I may need to add something to it. May get a salad. Will start reporting my full menu this evening. The good and the bad. That way I may actually be able to stay on track.

Hey Nkechi! I'm really sorry to hear you've been feeling lousy! You know that Splenda is really nasty stuff for some people, have you tried the stevia.?

I have some stevia but it tends to have a bitter aftertaste to me. I don't mind aftertaste anymore but I don't like bitter.

Before dinner I ate a few german chocolate cupcakes that my mom baked and dinner ended up being a steak and salad after all along with some french fries that Mr. C insisted that he needed. We cooked at his place and had a quiet evening of watching TV. He gave me 2 ballons and claims to have a suprise for me this weekend. I gave him a box of chocolates. We both are looking forward to the Kem concert this weekend. The original plan was to leave this evening but because I have not even packed yet we probably won't leave until the morning. Charlotte is only about a hour away so there is really no hurry.

Today's breakfast is coffee with caramel and creamer, a few leftover chocolates and a slice of pound cake

Back at work after a bout with bronchitis

Feeling better but still not 100% yet but getting there. On the bright side I got on the scale this morning and I'm at 230

I haven't been eating right but I haven't been eating much anyway. I guess I will get on the ball after once I eliminate cough drops out of my diet .

Cough drops are still a part of my diet but I am cutting back. I know I am addicted. I can feel it but I will survive. I am sucking on one as I type .

Breakfast: Coffee w/caramel sf syrup and creamer and a packet of almonds
Snacks: at least 3 cough drops so far but I haven't been counting
Lunch: Some leftovers that I have taking up space in the fridge (will try to keep it LC)
Dinner: No idea (I really need to start planning these things don't I?)

Mr. C and my friend the skinnyprincess2b have decided that they are going to plan a wedding without me . Now he says that he wants to just go ahead and do it this summer and had obviously forgotten our agreement . I will let them have their fun for now but I still don't have any plans to make any decisions until the fall.

Wow, bronchitis has a grip on everybody. My father and mother are now sick and I had it for 2-3 weeks straight. Hope you're feeling better. BTW, I love KEM.

Congragulations on reaching 230. Aren't there sugarfree cough medications available?

Yeah they have SF cough drops but I've neglected to pick some up . I will have to remember when this pack runs out. Probably will by the end of the day...

Hey Nkechi, Sorry to hear you were so sick

It looks like you are doing a great job at staying accountable. Good for you and CONGRATULATIONS on 230

Hope you are feeling better.

Hi Mika! I just left your journal. I am feeling much better but still coughing a little more than I would like. this congestion is something else.

Last night eating was not too good. Ended up going to Pizza Hut with Mr. C and had the buffet. I was so stuffed and I didn't even eat that much. I guess it was the combination of pasta, pizza dough and sweet iced tea

Today is not off to a good start because the pound cake lady hit again and this one she must have put her foot in. Had that with my coffee and still doing the cough drop thing. I will get it together though. Last night before going to dinner C and I went to Goodwill and bought some business books and I ran across both Atkins books. Since I don't know what happened to my other ones I was excited. Will be reading up on the Atkins way this weekend and trying to start the new month off on a good note. My b-day is on the 22nd and my plan was to be much closer to underland but I still have faith that I can drop a few lbs by then.

Hello all! I act still procrastinating on my planning. I had lunch today at Zax and ended up eating toast and had the nerve to order their new onion rings. They were good too but I know I need to do better. I have my 2 Atkins books here with me at work so I am going to do some planning this afternoon and take a trip to wallyworld after work. Wish me luck and say a prayer that I can stay on plan this week. Even though I haven't started the week/month on the right foot
