I went to the orthodontist today and got my consultation and impressions taken. Hopefully they can see me Friday afternoon to put the brackets on, if not it will be a couple weeks since he is out of town next week. Maybe if I have brace face I'll eat fewer cookies and lose some more weight! :) I didn't run Friday or yesterday(usually running M-W-F) because I still feel crummy and I don't want to kick in a bad sickness. I'll probably take this whole week off. Speaking of sickness, instead of getting a Neti pot I just brought home a 60cc syringe and used that to irrigate my sinuses. It felt kind of wrong at first but afterwards it felt pretty good. I think I might have used too much salt though, because it was pretty salty.

Huh, the neti pot thing sounds interesting. I always feel like there's a bunch of crap up in there.

Yeah I've had some small amount of post nasal drip for years and years. I hope this might help with that. I've heard a lot of good things about doing it.

I've been told by a few friends that when they are sick and work out, it makes them feel better and get past the cold/flu faster. Not sure this is true, as I've never tried it myself.

In this case, I think I actually made myself sick(by weakening my immune system) from overexerting myself. So I'm just going to chill out for a few days.

I didn't say I believe them... seems illogical to me when they told me. I had to share tho ;) Also why the user pic I choose.. that great "huh?" look ;)
