I had it when I was about your age, and I know how hard it is.  There really isn't a way to get better quicker, you need to sleep and take it easy or you'll end up making it worse for yourself.  If the doctor told you not to run, don't run.  Up your fluid intake, that should help with flushing your system (herbal teas and coffee might help?).  Things like Gatorade and Powerade are great to keep you hydrated and even make you feel a little better because of the electrolytes they have, if you're worried about calories they do have low cal versions.  Also, don't go too far down on calories if you do decide to decrease what you're eating.  You're body is going to need them to help it recover - and it will tell you what it needs.

How do you "out" a fictional character?  Seriously?  The series is over - does it really matter that much?

That used to happen to my sister when she had problems with her blood pressure and would work out.  Since her blood pressure has gone down it doesn't seem to happen as much when she exercises now.

Have you had yours checked?

People that use one of more of the following:

liberry - instead of library

irregardless - not even a word!

supposably - I'm assuming they mean supposedly?

the word nomenclature - especially when used incorrectly

And no, I can not BORROW you anything, I will consider lending you something though.

A red v-neck cashmere sweater that is so low cut it serves no real purpose since I spend most of my time at wok and it would be totally unprofessional.  I've lost a few sizes and needed to go buy a new shirt and jeans to wear out so I didn't look ridiculous on Saturday night.  And I needed a few new bras since the ones I have are too big.  I couldn't resist the feeling of the sweater.  Oh well, maybe I'll wear it around the guys next time I see them and see if they like it =P

Saturday night while on the dance floor of the new night club a guy actually walked up to me and asked what kind-of mirror I had in my home that led me to believe that I looked good and not just fat?  I told him it was the fun mirror from the circus and threw my friend'd drink in his face - it was worth getting kicked out of the place to see him freak out and everyone else start laughing.

I've dropped 2 sizes recently and if I can get hit on by the door guy (according to my friends, I think he was just being nice) then I'm not worried about what a small minded idiot has to say =)  None of us should be.

I was told by someone that I know fairly well, that yes, it does work.  She lost weight and but suffered from every side-effect listed on the web-site and a few others that should never be discussed in public. 
Fitness Pilates? Sep 19 2007
23:22 (UTC)
I do a Pilates tape a few times a week instead when I can't swim laps or run.  I don't love it, but it is a pretty good workout.  It's just like anything else, you get out what you put in.  And I agree it has helped with flexibility and toning.  Since I tend to be someone that doesn't always stretch when I run, it has helped a lot.

I believe that you burn carbs for the first 20 minutes, after that you begin to burn fat.  I could be wrong, but I'm fairly certain that's how it works.

I tried this a few years ago to drop quick pounds before a wedding I had to go to.  I was extremely ill and tired by day 4.  When the wedding came around a few days later, I still looked off color.

prepackaged soups can be high in salt - it's probably just water =)
