Today is Emily's birthday.

So, I stayed home from work yesterday because I was sick.  Maybe I'm getting pneumonia or something.  I also have been trying to lose weight for the whole month of January by being on a diet.  I lost about 7 lbs., but it seems like it's not coming off as fast as it used to.  I think I'm going through "the change."  So I mentioned to my wife that I should maybe use some fat burners.  She got me a bottle of Hydroxycut.  The bad thing is, it says that one pill has the same amount of caffeine as two cups of coffee.  You're looking at a guy who maybe drinks a Barq's Root Beer once every two years.  But I took the recommended dosage yesterday; one pill at 6:15am, one pill at 11:30 am, and one pill at 5:30pm.  I was up until 4am this morning!  I think it was a combination of the caffeine and being sick.  Anybody have any thoughts on this?

FAIL.  So Tuesday I went to the doctor to find out why I've been sick for a month now.  I was diagnosed with allergies.  Allergies?  Hmm, I guess that means I can run.  Nope.  I got a mile and a quarter in and had to stop.  I couldn't catch my breath.  So I walk/jogged the rest of the way home.  I now know that I have bronchitis.  So I'm on a low grade steroid, antibiotics, and cough syrup.  I think I'm feeling better.  At least sleeping's not such a chore.  (Writing this of Feb. 18th)
