>When growing up, I NEVER got sick. If I did, it was usually a massive undertaking (chicken pox, flu, etc). For some reason, since moving to Houston, I get sick every two months now. I’ve been to the ER once in my life (stitches) and yet I got a kidney stone–in Houston. Sinus infections would hit me once a year in Abilene, and yet I think I’m on number three this year–in Houston. I feel like I have an air pump filling my head up like a balloon…this place might kill me, but its definitely killing my ability to eat healthy.
Breakfast–This would be the last time I felt good today, and I use the word “good” loosely. I had Cherry vanilla granola and cherry pomegranate yogurt. It seemed easier than messing with oatmeal or anything else in my weakened state.
Snack–Fiber One bar. Something with a little taste was important…my taste buds are slowly dying.
Lunch–I had planned on Red Bean Soup, except it wasn’t what it usually is (again, NO CONSISTENCY) so I had tuna on salad again. Chef Tony, to his credit, made the teachers cupcakes for Valentines’ Day, and since I felt like death, I indulged. I ended up satisfying my chocolate craving, just not in the way I expected.
Dinner–After a much needed nap to try to recover a bit, my beautiful wife went to get me Pei Wei. I needed something with flavor to fight through the fog, so I went for the Mandarin Kung Pao vegetables again. I could taste them (bonus) and it was filling enough that hopefully I won’t need any sugar before bed.
We head to Plano tomorrow for Jenna’s wedding shower, so updates might be a little bit scattered. For my loyal reader(s), I promise I’ll make it up if there are lapses!
