143.6 I am ill.
For exercise yesterday: I walked my dog two miles round trip to the post office and a mile around the park. I shopped at Costco, and I did a few minutes on the stair step exercise machine.
Here is what I ate and lost .4 pounds, along with all that exercise:
Two small green apples with peanut butter and chocolate chips
Cup of Fage nonfat plain Greek yogurt with strawberries and honey
A third of a Costco combo pizza
Small bowl of strawberries drizzled with Hershey's Special Dark chocolate syrup
Scott took this picture of me and my dog a few weeks ago.
I suppose I will have to rethink the "I don't feel well" thing. The opposite of "I feel well" is "I feel ill." Let's try that will a few different verbs, adjectives and adverbs:
I am ill.
I am well.
I feel ill.
I feel well.
I feel good.
I feel bad.
I am good.
I am bad.
Using the word "well" instead of the word "good" does make clear we are speaking of our health. If I say I feel bad, we don't know if it is sickness or guilt which plagues me. If I say I am bad, it for sure sounds like I am admitting guilt, not complaining of sickness.
