Go figure...

Well, the cough that I thought was getting better took a turn for the worst last night as I started coughing to the point of being sick not one, not twice, but thrice! Gah!! I'm so frustrated right now but that's probably because I didn't get a whole lot of sleep. Today however, hasn't been too bad and I'm wondering if the inhaler I was taking for my asthma wasn't part of the problem. I didn't take it this morning like I normally would and I haven't had nearly the amount of trouble with the coughing as I have the past few days. Perhaps I have discovered the root of the problem. We'll see.

I think I'm just going to take it nice and easy this week and until this virus is gone. B wants me to go back to the health centre but I dont' know if it's really worth it. I'd at least like to see if things get better now that I'm not taking the stupid inhaler. I mean, it was loosening up the crap in my chest but I think it was really causing much of the coughing at the same time.

I'm really struggling with the weight loss these past few weeks. I definitely use food as a coping method, so with being sick and all, I've just wanted to pig out on comfort foods. Of course comfort foods are never healthy foods! Thankfully I didn't gain any weight this past week but I also didn't lose any. I know that I'll feel better about myself if I get it under control and yet I keep resisting and eating poorly. I guess old habits die hard. I do feel better when I'm eating properly and yet I still go for those junk foods that are so delicious! It's got to stop. If I managed to stop eating the potato chips, I can stop eating the junk foods too. It will just be a bit harder! LoL Perhaps I should set aside a limit instead of cutting them out completely...ease the transition a bit. I'm not sure but I know that I need to do something because I'm not very happy with the way things are right now. I'll figure it out.
