Went to bed early last night coz of a headache. Woke up in the morning, still with headache but also with achey bod, feeling alternately hot and cold, and nauseous. Didn't feel like doing anything so I stayed in bed until time to milk the goat. Didn't even eat my pre-milking snack!
Breakfast: 2 cups watermelon (half a very small), 1/2 cup blueberries, 1 egg with a little Mrs. Dash (tomato, basil, garlic), 1 cup oats cooked in whey
Snack: 1 wedge of laughing cow lite swiss cheese
Lunch: 1 6-oz can tuna, mayo, pickle relish, pickles, 8 rice crackers
Dinner: 3 cups garden salad from a bag (lettuce, carrots, cabbage), lite raspberry dressing, 1/2 cucumber, 1/2 long carrot
Beverages: weak tea with lemon juice

I had too much to do, so I pushed through the horrible feeling, for a while, at least. Milked, strained, refrigerated. Gave salted whole peanuts to the goats, and sesame seeds to the chickens.

Collected eggs (4 out of 6), watered critters, lunch, pain meds, nap.

Exercycle. Hubby home (he felt sick today too). Dinner. Milked the goat, strained, refrigerated. Took leftovers and a handful of corn tortillas to the chickens where there was a feeding frenzy. Eaten up by mosquitos so we came in.
Time for a shower and head off to bed with a little TV and reading. I think I did better with the calories today, don't you? Not so much for the exercising, but the little bit I did made my head hurt worse.
I'll weigh tomorrow morning before we head off. Sure hope it's gone down.
