Well, good news--I wasn't feeling sick from that walk! I don't have to be scared now about long hikes!
NOTE TO ANY MEN SPARKMEMBERS READING THIS: Here be monsters, you may want to turn around. XD I know a lot of you guys feel uncomfortable hearing about this stuff, so I'm giving you fair warning.
Anywho, yeah....so I was feeling sick, but that had more to do with internal plumbing than walking. My cycle's been screwed up for a long time and I think the sudden change in diet and increase in exercise finally triggered my period to start up again. This also makes me feel a bit better about not losing any weight yet. I was 244 pounds days before starting SparkPeople officially. Last Sunday (without any real increase in exercise, mind you), I was suddenly about 247 pounds....hence the unhappiness from me about weigh-in. But now I'm thinking (hoping?) it may just be water weight to some extent.
Not sure how much walking I'll be able to get done today feeling like I do. I get a crazy array of symptoms that can be pretty debilitating when they're bad enough. My stomach and knees hurt like mad (to the point where sometimes it's really hard for me to walk even just across the room), I sometimes get nauseous to the point where I have trouble handling even water, I get incredibly tired, and my mind kind of gets "fuzzy" where it's hard for me to focus on a lot of things. When I get a decent combination of all that I'm not even safe to drive. ....best part? It's gotten BETTER over the years! O_O Seriously, evolution, you screwed up on this one.
Took 3 advil yesterday for my body to have any desirable reaction to the medication. I think I'm going to try and take a second one now in hopes that I can make it to class on time. Luckily we're just doing paper editing (I'm weird, I have fun editing papers) and then I can come right back home.
