Saturday morning I moved the lawn and shortly after that my sinuses began draining, so I figured it for a touch of hay fever. By noon I was coughing and sneezing and felt very low energy. I slept 18 hours both Saturday and Sunday. Monday I woke up feeling fine, a little sniffly, but much rested. My head was so stuffed yesterday that I sounded like a monster on the phone By 3:00pm, the coughing came back with a vengence so I bit the bullet and took some Nyquil and ate some chicken soup. By 5pm I was sound asleep and woke up 12 hours later. For the most part it’s gone and I feel really good after all that sleep. An added bonus is that when I have the sniffles, it’s a hassle to eat and breathe at the same time, so I basically skip eating except for fluids. Today I’m 5 pounds lighter than I was Friday, which is 5 pounds lighter than I was last month. Yay! When I no longer care about losing weight, it starts slipping off by itself. I can live with that.
