I’m back at it after my festival of sleep

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.
