Day 263 - Sorry....

My apologies for having missed a few days, thought I was feeling better and then I had a relapse.  Still having lots of problems with breathing and the fluff from the trees is killing me.  Went for a walk today for the first time in 2 weeks and could hardly breath when I got back to the office and we only walked for 5 minutes.  Holy cow!

Last couple of days have been really busy.  We did get to church on Sunday and that was nice.  They were having a picnic afterwards but we passed as I can't be outdoors for too long where there are lots of trees and that site is loaded with poplars.  Yesterday, we had our annual TOPS summer picnic and it was really nice, not too long outside so managed ok.  We also started an accountability contest today in which we are partnered up with another member and have to do the following:

1.  Attend meetings
2.  Fill out a food log
3.  Exercise for 20 minutes 3X week
4.  Call our partner at least 2X a week
5.  Weigh in each week with a loss

So I have to start getting back onto program again whether I feel up to it or not.  When I'm sick I don't eat a lot but I do consume a lot of regular GingerAle (old remedy from when I was growing up), and that packs on the pounds and fluids.

I got all the travel arrangements done for Vegas and everything worked out just great, my niece will be home in time to go and this is the response she posted on Facebook when I told I had Garth Brooks tickets:
