Here we are at week 2 of the allergy crud. I am still fighting it. No fever at all, just the crud. No antibiotics and no doctor trips. Why, when there is nothing he can give me for it. I have to rid myself of it. If I can't get rid of the mucus on my own, then I will go and get the prednisone to dry it all up. I am tired of it already.
I had one woman stop me and tell me that I need to quit smoking sooner or later. I laughed and told her I have never smoked a day in my life, this is the pollen crud that I have been dealing with. Everyone around here has it. I go to the store and I hear the tell tale cough.
I am still working on the Raha scarf. I know why I never knit the things anymore, boring! It is driving me crazy. I would rather work on something that keeps my interest not make me want to throw it down and work on something more challenging. I am sticking to it since it will become someone's Christmas present. Yeah, I am knitting those already. Why not?
I have plans to knit another shawl or two in the near future. I have yarn galore in that front, too.
I want to knit some hats and cowls for people. Hats are easy 1 to 2 hour projects. So simple and typically mindless. I have several men in the family to knit hats for. They love them and it doesn't take much to keep them happy.
After perusing my Clean Eating magazine, I am looking at trying several of the recipes. I will have to get rid of a few carb laden items but, I am thinking what I will sub in will work. If it calls for rice, I sub in either quinoa or bulgur. I find that bulgur is my go to grain rather than the quinoa. The quinoa is light and works for soups and other dishes but, I like the texture of the bulgur.
I have the omega-3 pasta that is actually lower carbs than regular pasta and that is a once a month or once every 2 months option, not an every day or every week.
Yes, I am still eating low carb and I can tell the difference. I have lost weight, I am still in the current size that I had lost weight to get into but, I am working on getting into a smaller size for the year. Hopefully, I will lose 2 sizes this year. That would be so nice. I would love to be back into my really cute clothes. I will have to lose more than that should I want to get into my old Levis.
I usually have a yogurt for breakfast. I eat the Greek Chobani and I love it. The dogs love it, too. They like to lick the container. It works out nicely for recycling purposes, the little one licks it clean, I pick it up, I put it in the recycling tub.
After this post, I plan to put on my compression shorts and ride my bike. I won't be outside for this since it is FREAKING cold out there right now. I was hoping to be able to start swimming soon. Uh, no. Mother Nature has put a stop to that right away. So, swimming will have to wait. Darn. Unless I can find my wet suit. I have no idea where it went to.
I need to paint the Spring line up but, I don't want to do it right now.
