begin again day 1.

I am starting off the new year trying to decide if I am getting better, or worse.
Have had an awful sore throat since Tuesday, went to the doc on Wed. she didnt think it was anything to worry about.
Prescribed mucinex, which made no sense to me, as I wasnt coughing or congested.
No swab or culture or blood test.
Came home that evening feeling even worse. Yesterday felt even worse.
and as the evening wore on I began to feel some better, so I cleaned my bedroom and kitchen and took a long hot epsom salt bath.
Spend New Years eve alone, just me and my dog, watching the walking dead marathon.
Honey had to spend the night with his dad, again.
Now, onto today. Woke up coughing, but unable to tell if I am getting sicker.
I dont really feel bad, just sore throat and now a little cough mostly only when I am laying down.
It is kinda like I am choking on dust or smoke.
Oh well, whatever it is, I am sure it will pass in time, I am drinking tons of water, chewing ice chips and lozenges and using the humidifier.
I wish each of you a happy new year and for me, I plan to get back to walking and track my walks more this year.
And to be more honest about my failures.
I wont even lie, this year I really slacked on everything.
Tracking, sparking and actually following any real plan.
The results, I am currently 11 pounds heavier than I was this time last year.
I suppose I should be thankful it wasnt worse.
But I should be losing weight. and it is time to figure out how to do that and why I am not!!
I really need to stay accountable and plan ahead.
I often wonder why people say happy new year, and why Jan 1st is automatically considered the beginning of a new year. I usually see Sept as the beginning and the end of things for me.
My birth month.
But I am going to try to really see this as a chance to start anew and get back on the right track. I guess its like wiping the slate clean and starting over.
