Rough Day Yesterday

Saturday, July 06, 2013

As the header says, it was a pretty rough day yesterday. I ended up with another stomach blockage and was unable to keep down anything for about 22 hours. Of course, that means anything I tried to put in came back with a vengeance.

That, however, did not keep me from going through my exercise and trainer appointments for the day. I figured out (after the fact) that proceeding without being able to hydrate was not the wisest thing I have ever done. While I made it through my training appointment, it was not without cost. It was with a severe blood sugar drop, dehydration, me going as pale as a ghost and shaking like a leaf, and scaring the heck out of both my trainer and the friend who was observing my session.

I have deduced from this that I must be kinder to myself when I am not feeling my best. I must also muzzle the "negative Nellie" that lives in my head that badgers me with "old tapes" that I am weak and useless when I am unable to complete my normal routine. I think it is time to look into counseling to keep that voice at bay and for me to heed my own words to others about how precious they are and to be gentle with themselves.

    Take care of yourself and don't be so hard on yourself too.

    You do need to take better care of yourself. You DO deserve it and you also NEED it. Perfection is NOT either desirable NOR achievable - so you are wasting time trying to be perfect.

(Hugs) Hope you feel better today.

    You need to take care of yourself. If you do not feel good, its best to refrain from exercising, especially if it involves your stomach. Hope you are feeling better.
