Day 50
2.46 Miles / 3.96 Kilometers
68 minutes 316 calories burned

It was such a nice Fall day today. I took Bayau on our long walk this evening.

My husband phoned today and thinks he has strep throat. He is talking about going to Urgent Care when he gets to our daughter's house. I sent her a message for her to try to get him to go.

I have been reading many blogs on Spark People and some Spark people have been sick for a week at a time.

I also read on another Sparker's page that those that exercise are less likely to be sick with colds and I believe that to be true.

I still am not sleeping well. I dreamed about Dr. Westman and he was checking out what everyone was eating at a party, lol. He is the doctor that advocates low carb high fat for a number of health problems.

Well, it is almost 6 PM and I ate all the food that I had prepared, so tonight might be a good night to cook some more that can be kept in the refrigerator. If food is not at hand, that is when the temptation to cheat happens. I don't need any excuses.

    I found it helps if I just take ONE (generic) tylenol PM at bedtime so though I do get up to pee a couple of times, it's easier to fall back to sleep and I can still get up at (ugh) 5:30 am!

    Hate to tell ya, but those who exercise still get sick! I've been sick for a month! Funny you dreaming about the doctor! Hope your hubby sees a doctor! Strep is nothing to mess with!

    You are doing great with preplanning! You must really be focused since you are dreaming about Dr Westman! Glad your hubby is talking about going to the care center.

    Hubby went to Urgent Care when he got to our daughter's house this evening. He has a cold and they had to take wax out of his ear to see his eardrum. I am glad that he went, so that others won't get infected and because he will be driving home alone. I think when you are sick, it would be easy to doze off while driving.

    Hope DH will get in because if he has strep he really needs antibiotics and he can give it to everyone else!!!

    Good idea to keep food at the ready for yourself so you aren't tempted to eat what you shouldn't!!
