Well, I weighed this morning and scale says I'm up 3 pounds from Sunday. I do not think this is possible based on what I've been eating. But, I know I haven't gotten in all my water and that I am puffy. To top it off I think I'm getting a sinus infection. I've had a headache for several days, congestion and such. I went home at lunch and took a nap. After work I was home by a little after 5 and I went to bed. Was in bed most of the night with chills and maybe fever. I really don't have time to be sick and my BFF will be here this afternoon. I'm going to be pissed if I'm sick and it ruins our visit.
I hate taking antibiotics. I avoid it whenever possible. I have been using saline rinse in my sinuses and it helps a lot. Plus my usual allergy meds. I do feel a little better so far today, so we'll see. In laws leave today as the BFF arrives. The revolving door continues. But, it has been a lot of fun having a house full of people for the holidays. Tomorrow I work and then off the rest of the week to spend some time with the BFF. I'm hoping to take her for a grown up lunch out tomorrow since we'll have childcare with Nanny. Maybe we'll get to squeeze in a movie on Thursday together.
I didn't track calories yesterday because I felt like crap. I entered them this morning and I was in my range. I am tracking this am. Had my breakfast. I doubt they'll be much exercise today as I am planning another nap today for lunch. Hopefully that gain will be washed away as I push the water back to pre-holiday levels. Mind you I've gotten all my fluids in everyday, but water is best.
And now some sports talk
So last night I watched the kind of football game I like to see. A battle. Defensive plays taking the charge. Sheer will of the quarterback forcing their team to pull through. The Saints battled the Falcons. I like both teams, don't hate either and it was just enjoyable to watch, what I saw of it anyway. I remember when the Boys used to play like that, but it's been quite some time. And tonight I get to see my 2nd team, the Vikes, probably get pummeled by the hated Eagles. I'm really just hating on all things Philly right now. But, NFL 4 days in a row is something I could get used to.
I did watch a little of the bowl game yesterday. Air Force did what they do. They are a good team and I was glad they won. Actually after their game in Norman this year we went out to eat at a hibachi grill. At the table with us was one of their players. I happened to glance up and see him on the side line. I was happy for him that they won. Today is the Champs Sports Bowl and the Insight Bowl. Seriously? I'm supposed to rush home to see West Virginia play NC State? And THEN I'm supposed to stay up late to see Mizzou play Iowa with a 9pm kick off? This bowl crap is getting ridiculous.
I am looking forward to the Alamo bowl. OSU will play Arizona. I have connection to both teams, being an Okie and Mike Stoops coaching the Wildcats. I might watch the Sun Bowl. Two teams you love to hate-Notre Dame and Miami. The Chick-Fil-A Bowl (I kid you not, that's the name of the bowl) might be good with the Game Cocks playing Florida State. I just like yelling, "Go Cocks!" But I also like Spurrier who has always been fair to my Sooners. And speaking of my Sooners. We get to play U.Conn. yep. I know. Hard to get too excited by a complete yawn of a bowl match up. If we win, so what. If we don't, there will be hell to pay.
But, even with the lack luster plethora of mediocre teams playing in bowls this year I take comfort in the fact that there are a few more glorious days of college football. And the BEST part?? Texas is watching from home. Hee hee hee hee ha ha ha ha ha. Oh, my side hurts.
Have a great day all. Any of you out there watching any of the bowl games?
