not time to give up glutathione yet!

Today i'm drained.

During the last day of our cruise, and during the long one of travel (rising at 6 and not getting home till 11), i failed to take my glutathione, though i managed to get the first-thing-in-the-morning and the last-thing-at-night supplements.  MISTAKE.

Yesterday i didn't do much but cook lunch and dinner (easy things), but today i finished the unpacking and putting-away, then visited the grocery.  It doesn't help that i woke at 5:30 with a plugged head, draining sinuses and a raw throat!  Serious allergy-season is upon us.

Grass pollen and atmospheric mold are high.  Pine and walnut pollens are moderate.  My upper-respiratory tract is screaming.  No way in the world am i going down to the basement and start the laundry!

Bless J for doing dinner tonight -- it's steaks and stuffed mushrooms (Fat Fast recipe, shockingly easy considering how fantastic they taste).

There IS good news, though:  when i weighed in this morning, i was almost back to my pre-vacation weight.  Most of the retained water has been flushed away.  Spenser let me brush him this morning.  Tomorrow we resume our weekly trips to the Missouri Botanical Garden, then we'll go to Michael's for liver'n'onions, then to Costco for more lamb and a beef tenderloin ... fish too, maybe.

Life is good, despite the weariness.


  1. Feel better soon! I know how miserable sinus problems are. I don't get allergies often anymore, but still keep the Mucinex around.

  2. The allergies sound like a nightmare. Hope you feel better soon!

  3. thank you both! i'm sure things will get better soon.

  4. From my asthma I know - the undersleeping could be as bad as a gluten, and allergies worsen sleep... Good luck, Tess to brake that circle sooner.

  5. I took a long-acting antihistamine yesterday afternoon and things are better. :-) thanks, everyone, for your kind regards!
