Ok, last night I started feeling a little queasy. Uh oh, not good. A really bad stomach bug has been making the circuit recently. I not only hate to throw up, I REFUSE to throw up. I will do everything in my power to not get sick. So I was in bed and asleep by 8:15. I woke up in the wee hours with that "uh oh" feeling. So I just held still, very still. Anytime I moved I thought I was going to have to hit the bathroom running. Let's just say that I stayed in bed (with the exception of texting my boss that I wouldn't be making it to work) until 10:20 this morning. I absolutely did not want to eat or drink anything. I know that's bad and really needed something on my stomach, and tons of water. I forced down a peanut butter and banana sandwich. Note to self: Bad idea.
So, needless to say, today was a mandatory rest day. Totally throws off my workout schedule of course. But I'm trying to be realistic about it. Workout would equal throw up. Throw up is bad, so workout is bad (today anyway). There, done, rationalized (sort of).
I only managed to be awake for about 3 hours before falling back asleep. Dinner may not be happening at all. If it does, it'll be something like a protein shake just to get in some nutrients. So, with that said, I'm off to go back to bed.
I hope everyone else is starting their week off on a better note!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes. Just something about a stomach bug that seems so much worse than other illnesses I think. I've done nothing but sleep, sleep, and sleep some more.ReplyDelete
