Happy December

Hello everyone and Happy December! I am so happy to share that I am feeling much better, last Tuesday I bought a neti pot to help flush our my sinuses, wow I wish I had bought one when I first felt like crap. I was skeptical and unsure of how it would feel, and it just feels strange. The key is using a saline solution or else it will burn like it did when you were a kid and got water up your nose. I am so grateful that I didn't have to call the Dr. for a course of antibiotics like many of my co-workers, all I could think was I didn't want to destroy my good gut bacteria. I like to think that my sinus cold wasn't as severe and didn't hang on as long because I have been good about low sugar, who knows if I'm right but it's something that makes me feel good. In case you missed it last time this is what I did to help with my cold symptoms: I made a ginger lemon tea by placing peeled and sliced ginger and sliced lemons and water in my crock pot on low all day, I highly recommend that. Advil cold and sinus allowed me to function during the day and get good rest at night. I also made low salt turkey and chicken soup and tried to rest as much as possible.

I have been doing great on the bfc my jeans are fitting much better and I am sooo happy! I have been staying away from work food and also doing great on drinking less. Basically I've been doing the things that I know I need to be doing. I am confident that I can make it though the rest of the holiday season successfully and it feels realistic to be at 135 by the time my birthday rolls around at the end of January.

Have a wonderful week, I will try to post more so I can stay connected and I will work on getting some cute pics of our house posted :)
