Valentines and Antibiotics

Had a great Valentines Day with my man. Lots of good conversation and laughs. Chose to have some gluten-free pizza and a little chocolate. No alcohol. Just didn't feel like it. Oddly, over time, my alcohol tolerance and cravings have gone down over time. Wish I could say the same about chips!

So the bad news is I'm currently on antibiotics right now. Kidney infection. Had a few symptoms on Friday night and woke up on Saturday morning with that pain in my side and I knew right away I had to get to the clinic. In addition to drinking tons of water, I'm taking some probiotics. Since I'm lactose intolerant, yoghurt is out, so I'm taking a fermented rice organic probiotic instead. Yoghurt is much cheaper! Once I'm done with the drugs, I'll be more vigilant about my water intake and getting in my cranberry capsules.

We got another dump of snow here so I've been shoveling and shoveling. Very glad it was fluffy snow and that it was windy so I had an extra push to help me fling it over my huge snow bank. I'm working my arms and shoulders like crazy this winter. My man spent the time indoors watching the Olympic hockey matches... Ain't love grand! LOL

  1. Oh Nikki! Take care of yourself! You might want to buy some dried cherries to munch on as snacks; they are great for the kidneys, too. Push the water!

  3. UGH SNOW! Glad you got the fluffy stuff! I had to flag someone down and beg someone to plow out the end of my driveway! It was 5 feet of pure hell gross snow.

    Hope you feel better soon!!!

    1. You all down east have it so much worse this winter than here. It totally sucks when the city plow dumps a wall of crap on the end of the drive. Most of my friends hire a company for $200 the season who'll come and plow the driveway out. I choose to use my biceps :)

  4. Hi Nikki, I hope you feel better soon. Good for you to watch your weight even when you don't feel good. That's often a hard time for me to keep focused. :D
