Neo-paleo cleanse: Day 12
Thursday, September 19, 2013
Today was not a very good day. After dinner last night (McDonalds salad at 7:30) my stomach started hurting. I went to bed, didn't sleep well, and when I woke up this morning I was super dizzy, my stomach still hurt, and I had a headache. I went to school anyway. I ate 2 hard boiled eggs when I got there to see if eating something would help my stomach. It didn't.
Everyone who saw me could tell I didn't feel well. By 9am I was so done, I ended up calling in for the rest of the day and let Sarah take over. We did have a sub, but she did all of the teaching. By 9:45 I was back home, in bed, asleep.
My stomach kept getting worse and worse, I didn't have anything in it to throw up, so I figured I should eat something. But what do you eat on paleo when you have an upset stomach? nothing. So I had crackers. 100% not paleo and not on plan, but they helped a little bit. Husband got me some ginger ale, also not paleo but it also helped a bit. I took some ibuprofen and went back to bed.
I woke up at about 4:30 and I felt so much better. I was still dizzy but my head and my stomach didn't hurt anymore. I weighed at that point of the day and I was 209.4, the lightest I've been since giving birth. I'm usually lighter in the afternoon than in the morning, so it will be different to see how it changes by tomorrow morning.
I got to spend some time with my boys, which was what I needed. I didn't get to see my friend for dinner, but hopefully we can meet up next week. Dinner was meatloaf and asparagus, and I added mushrooms to the meatloaf. As of now I'm still a bit dizzy, but way better than i was off last nigh at this time or even this morning. Tomorrow we have a work day, meetings all day, so I can kind of take it easy.
