Well a whole week went by and I have been grounded from my workouts due to my Oxygen levels or lack of!! I have been a good girl and followed my diet and didn't have any "pity party pig outs". One thing I don't understand though is...why does one crave fattening stuff when your sick? In my mind I could have devoured French fries, Onion rings and 2 pounds of cheese cake BUT I DIDN'T!!! I often wonder if it is the devil that has taken over your body and filled it full of nasty mucus and cravings that come from the bowels of the black bayou?!!?!?!?! Well I say.... #$%&*(&% be gone you dirty demon...I am in control of my eating and you will not have your way with me! LOL! So tomorrow is my weigh in day and I will "gingerly" step aboard and see what a week of no exercise has done or NOT done for my bod this week. Wish me luck!! LOVE YOU GUYS!

    Good for you resisting temptation! I hate it when my brain fantasizes about food.... Even though the scale didn't go down, it didn't go up either. When I'm sick is probably the only time I don't want food. So, reach for a celery stick and close your eyes and pretend it's double Oreo cheesecake! (Like my grandma used to do on an airplane takeoffs and landings, gripping the armrests, squeezing her eyes shut and repeating: I'm on the New Haven Railroad, I'm on the New Haven Railroad....) The power of positive thinking!!!
    Love the cartoon!

    Aahhh, fat and sugar, served up warm. Sounds like Mother's Milk to me--the FIRST comfort food! (Talk about early programming!)

    Good for you sticking with it!

    Hey Ruth (AKA Creeping Crudmeister),
    You always give me a chuckle, even when you have the 'creeping crud'. I sure hope that you feel like your sassy self soon! Love the cartoon, it's so cute. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you tomorrow when you step on that scale. If it's NOT good to you, I may have to jump on a plane, come to your house (just keep Rosa locked away), and the two of us will have to beat the crap out of your scale with a sledgehammer!! But I think that you WILL be doing the 'happy dance'. As for resisting cheesecake and other tempting evils, I say congrats to you!

    Congrats for not giving in to the devil on your shoulder! Food does nothing to make you feel better. Except for loads and loads of vitamin C of course! emoticon HA! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that the scale is kind but if it's not, you just keep on truckin'!

    Good luck, my friend! Being sick is just the pits--hope you are well on the way to recovery!

    How proud you must feel for resisting temptation! Way to go Ruth! In my opinion, when we're sick or stressed/nervous/sad/angry/any bad emotion, those fattening foods make us feel comforted - even if temporarily. Maybe it goes back to being a child when mom gave us goodies while we talked out what was wrong, and it made us feel so much better.

    I hope you're feeling better soon. Has your doctor given you any reason for the low blood-oxygen level? Did he give you any suggestions for ways you can still move to burn calories in the meantime? (Like leg lifts while sitting.)

    I'm praying for you!

    Love and hugs,
