^^100% me today. That goodness for Grim who is my "keeper"!^^

Happy Hump Day, Gang!

Uh-oh...I went to bed feeling under the weather and hoped I would sleep it off but I am not much better this morning. I have a headache centered squarely in my left eye, and a slight fever. Not the end of the world but I just feel yucky. I think I might take a few hours off this morning to sit in the dark and listen to an audio book before I have to dive in for some can't-miss meetings in the afternoon.

QOTD: Are you a hypochondriac? I used to be as a kid, but too be fair I was sick a lot as a kid! I had measles, mumps, chicken pox, mono, yearly bronchitis, etc. Thank god there was not google back then, haha! But now I don't stress about my own illnesses... but I do worry about other people!

Yesterday, since I started to fade early, and combined with the oppressive heat, I didn't eat much. Ended the day just over 500 calories and 20 carbs.

I haven't even bothered with MFP today. I think I will just try to concentrate on liquids and see where we go from there!

Good Morning!

Half way through the week - weekend can't come soon enough!

QOTD: no. And if you ever see me at a hospital not in my scrubs.. be worried. I avoided that place outside working hours like the plague.

Good mornin JB and menu friends.

I was able to get my second dose early yesterday. My arm is now sore and feels like it weighs a ton. Hopefully that's all the side effects I'll have. Not feeling 100%(what ever that is LOL) though.

I woke up a few times having to jump out of bed to release the horrid cramps in my legs. Oh so fun!

We have the kids until 3 today. So not much is planned.

QOTD: I guess I am sort of. BUT I think as someone who is overweight or has been we are not listened to by most in the medical field. It's all blamed on the weight. Just lose some weight and you'll be fine is so commonly heard and things are so often overlooked. So some of us are conditioned to feel like we are hypochondriacs.

B: l&f yogurt, chicken sausage and coffee before

L: tostada with taco meat, 1 tbs cheese and 1 tbs sour cream

D: new thing I found at the grocery store, a cup of soup shromy beef with brown rice(not much of the rice)

S: popcorn, freeze dried apple and ???

a quick pic of my Opal this morning taken with my iPad. She's so pretty and she knows it!

Yay for your 2nd dose! My symptoms were pretty tough on round 2 but I just keep thinking, if this is how my body reacted with a fake 'rona, I am sure glad I didn't get the real one!

My sons found that the day after the second vaccination was the worst, but two days after were better.

in there!
