Sick

I have spent most of the past three days resting on the couch. I never know what to do when I'm sick--how hard should I push myself? I do have bronchial asthma, so I have to be careful when I get respiratory infections. I made myself do 20 easy going minutes on the elliptical this morning, and I did a lower body strength session this afternoon. I feel a lot of pressure in my chest, so I have to really watch it. So annoying. My main focus right now is keeping my food portions small since I'm not expending much energy--I don't need to add any extra calories to the mix.

Still no word from the doctor. In this case no news is sucky news. No news means that they didn't find anything wrong with my blood work--which means there is no explanation for my weight gain. I have some ideas mulling around in my head that I am excited to share in a few days, though. Maybe when I'm feeling better.

Sorry you are still feeling yucky. Please call me if you need ANYTHING! I was thinking about the whole weight thing and wondering if you weighed less last year because you were so sick for several months. Maybe you lost weight and are now at a 'regular' weight?? I don't know...just trying to think of things to be helpful.

Also, I would continue to poke around at the thyroid thing if you can't find an answer with a basic level check. Oftentimes, thyroid issues require more extensive detective work, especially in women.

Hey Lindsay, I really hope you get feeling better soon. And I want you to know that I've been thinking lots about you too. I'm really sorry about your frustrations you've been having lately. I just wanted to let you know that I think you're amazing, and you have taught me a lot about nutrition. I would be happy to tell your doctor off for you anytime.
