This Week-Sickness was NOT in my Plan!

Friday, April 19, 2013

I was really looking forward to getting back to normal this week after my difficult week last week but my body had other ideas. Sunday evening my stomach started feeling a little off. Monday all day I had diarrhea and stomach cramping, took 2 naps and had a major headache in the evening. Ugh! Good thing it was my day off this week!

I was hoping for it to be a 24 hour thing and I did feel a bit better on Tuesday with no diarrhea but since I missed all last week due to work along with the Friday and most of Thursday the week before that I couldn't really call in to work so I sucked it up, washed my hands a lot and went to work. I felt okay after work so I went to Tae Kwon Do class. Did okay but felt a little shaky and had to stop when they had us doing a lot of spinning kicks. But I weathered through it and went to bed.

Wednesday morning I woke up with diarrhea again but took something for it and it went away but still felt a little off with stomach upset. I had a sandwich for lunch on gluten free bread, a banana and greek yogurt for the probiotic effects and things calmed down a bit. So I was not on my regular diet since the veggies and salad I normally eat didn't sit well. I was about 80% better but still not great. Went to my mom's to start cleaning out some of her stuff and got a little bit done.

Thursday I had just gas all day. It was NOT fun but still better than the previous days. FINALLY last night I started to feel normal after my workout but during my workout I still felt a little shaky.

Today I finally felt 100% back to normal but when I wanted to work out I ended up falling asleep on the couch so I guess I still needed the rest. Tomorrow I plan to sleep in and then go to the gym and do run/walk intervals on the treadmill.

So this week was not back to normal but next week FOR SURE I will work out for SIX DAYS! I'm looking forward to it! Here's to better health!

    Don't forget that rest and restoration especially while grieving is even MORE important than exercise. Take care of yourself. emoticon

    So sorry to hear you weren't feeling well. I think your body is overtired and worn out. You need rest. Take care of yourself and take it slow. You will be back soon. I know it! Hang in there my new Spark friend! I'm thinking of you. emoticon
