I'm not sure what day I'm on but it's getting close to being over!
Still sticking with the Whole30 Challenge. I cheated on Tuesday with some white potatoes. I wasn't feeling well and that was what I wanted (homemade hash browns), and I figured that out of everything I could cheat with, white potatoes were probably the least detrimental. I may have some tonight too.
Despite feeling fairly fantastic, I'd been headachey, sniffling, sneezing, and coughing yet again. Not a cold, but my sinuses. Yet again. My regular doc was booked so I saw a guy I hadn't been to before. Who turned out to be paleo and knew all about Whole30. He recommended that I not do antibiotics during a Whole30 and instead that we treat this more like a cold. So I got real sudafed, cough syrup with codeine, and another cough med called Tessalon which would be the coolest sci-fi name. The idea was to knock back the annoying symptoms so that my body could focus on healing. And it seems to be working. This was Tuesday; I took a mental health day on Wednesday, got some extra sleep, and in general just took it easy with both mind and body. By yesterday I was feeling tremendously better. The annoying little wheeze in my lungs is gone, my sniffles are nearly gone, and I'm not sneezing.
I did find out that they weren't kidding about not taking the cough meds and driving. I only took Tessalon because when I was home doing nothing it didn't seem to affect me that much. Halfway to work yesterday I realized I was seriously loopy. Oopsie!
I'm really looking forward to a weekend where there's nothing I need to do. Sounds like a good time to curl up on the couch with a blankie, some kittehs, and the remote.
