The sinus infection went to my chest. Even though I was taking an antibiotic and had an injection of another antibiotic, I became worse by the day. Earlier last week, I was faced with a breakout that rivaled any teen problem. It was worse on my chest and upper arms. Plus, I had a swollen place on my cheek that turned worse before it subsided, leaving me with a huge problem. HA! All this was a reaction to the injection. I showed the doctor and he said he and a nurse had the same problem, that it took six weeks to go away. Yeah, and there are other places on my face.
All this is not to air my bumps. It is to say what I was puzzled about was a drug reaction. Now, for six weeks to pass. I do keep upper arms and chest covered just as the way I dress. But, my face at Christmas time and holidays just won't do!
A few weeks ago, I had gained some of my weight-loss back. Well, I am losing down to my original 25-pound weight loss. Losing weight over Thanksgiving is great. I even had a whole pumpkin pie the day before Thanksgiving. I did not back off from sugar or carbs. But, my indulgences were short-lived. That is the key for me.
The grocery ads have had nothing I wanted, nothing I buy, and nothing I needed. Consequentially, I have spent less than $5 on food in about ten days. It appears there is nothing in this week's ad either. I will buy ground pork from Publix today or tomorrow. Hopefully, Kroger has milk 2/$4 this week. I have one banana left. My Diet Coke is gone, so there is that to buy. Spending $10 for one week is great! Of course, I will have milk for two weeks and ground pork.
I saved back one of the 10 celery heads I bought for $0.48 for making chicken salad, tuna salad, just stuff that sort of calls for crunchy celery. There are chicken breasts here, ready for those meals, breasts from the hens I cooked before Thanksgiving.
If I appear MIA, I cannot afford $69/month for wifi from Charter. I refuse to go back to ATT. Exbf is all about me getting the best deal, but he sort of became alarmed I would consider ATT again. I do have choices--buy a phone with hotspot capability or buy a hotspot and pay by the month. Either is cheaper than Charter I have. Both take money.
How did you do on weight gain or loss over Thanksgiving and Halloween? Have you found any good sales?
