Still running on very little sleep.

Days like this make me wonder how many carbs I was consuming before I was trying to low carb. (notice I said trying) Even though those numbers don't look too good. I was still trying. I could have eaten the WHOLE pizza, for sure. The OJ there at the end. I woke this morning with a sore throat. My son went out to the store, bought some OJ for me, fixed me a glass and said 'Here Mom, I think you need this". Sweet, I know!!!! He is a good kid. Once I looked at the carb count I about fell over, and NO fiber. It had pulp, what is that all about. I usually drink SF Tang. Actually had some in the cabinet. Anyway the day is over and it is what it is. I will still get up tomorrow and try to do better. That REALLY is what its all about.

I hope you're feeling better today, NewVision.

Yes, to keep trying in good and bad times is a big part of success. At least, I think so (too).

For what it's worth, I think sugar is one of the worst things to consume when battling a cold or the flu. It's just not good for our immune system - as far as I understand it.

Certain teas may be better options. There's a really good one called "Throat Coat". Ginger tea and/or chamomile are also excellent for combating inflammation, in supporting immune function and it may even possess anti-viral properties. Even green or white tea would work well.

Take good care!
