    Bad day for me. I am still on antibiotics for pneumonia, and I've been fighting a killer headache all day. Grumpy and not very happy.

    Didn't do any exercising today. Just slept most of the day, as even just turning my head hurt.

    Snacked all day on about 2 cups of popcorn left over from last night. Had 2 cups of coffee this morning, juice from two blood oranges, too many Excedrin to count, and enough water/soymilk to wash it down.

    I am still thinking ...

    I went to the doctor today, after WEEKS of feeling like crap, and it turns out that I have walking pneumonia!! Not only that, but the doctor, who deemed me "unlucky," says I also have a virus that is causing an inner ear imbalance (explaining the vertigo issues I've been having). So I am on antibiotics for the pneumonia, cough syrup to help me sleep, and meclizine for the vertigo. Lucky me.

    Prior to finding out that I have pneumonia, I got my hour in on the treadmill. ...

    Wow, work really plays havoc with my weight loss attempts! I do much worse on work days than on non-work days or on days when I can stay at home!

    The good news is that I got my hour on the treadmill this morning. That is about the only positive part of the day!

    I totally forgot about my water intake until I got home, and then I didn't have enough bottled water for both me and the birds, so the birds won the coin toss, and I didn't want to drink tap/well water. I ...

    Hoo Yah!! Another hour on the treadmill this morning! I am going to kick my fat butt in the fat butt this week!

    Breakfast was oatmeal with rice milk and Splenda (and just a dash of pumpkin pie spice). One cup of coffee.

    Lunch was a dish of risotto gnocchi and spinach in tomato sauce. I did also have a cup of coffee after lunch, but since I usually have two at breakfast, I think I broke even there. And I walked about four blocks to the restaurant (and four back). ...
