I'm baaa-aaack!

Yes, it is true. I have left the sick-couch behind and last night I actually slept in a BED for the first time since Monday night. And I actually got more than 2 hours of sleep. And I actually feel like a normal, breathing, human being today. So those of you who extolled the virtues of the Z-Pack were right on the money. It is heaven in the form of 6 pills. Amen.

And now I have a confession to make.

Since mid February, I have been on kind of a healthy food kick. Monitering calories (casually), trying not to eat sweets, eating a lot more veggies and fruit. But I must say that this week, I fell off the proverbial diet wagon.

And onto a Ben & Jerry's factory.

I am sorry but salads and popcorn and rice cakes and carrots and baked skinless chicken breast are all well and good but they are NOT comfort foods (to me, at least). When my throat iskilling me and my entire body hurts, only Cherry Garcia can make me feel better. Well, Cherry Garcia and Karamel Sutra. And codiene.

But, when you think about it. An entire carton of B&J is only what, 1100 calories? And if that is all you eat all day, it's not THAT bad calorically speaking. Not especially healthy, but you know, dairy is good, right? Calcium and whatnot?

Glad you're back on your well heeled feet. Take it easy so you don't have a relapse.

I've found that things don't count when your sick or on the rag. They just don't. Especially ice cream and sweets :)

Oh my... the same thing happened to me except it was a bag of no bake cookies from one of the nurses.... and I don't think they were intended for me. Lets just say that I totally screwed up my giving up sweets for Lent.
