I feel like my SP journey has been paused for the past couple of weeks. I haven't been feeling very well so I haven't been keeping up with my plan. I went to the doctor on Tuesday and had a whole bunch of lab work done so hopefully she will call today with some answers.
I know people will say that not feeling well isn't an excuse to stop eating right and exercising, but when eating is causing physical pain maybe it is time to pause the program. I don't know what it is, but as of yesterday the only thing that I've found so far that I can eat without too much pain is plain white bread and chicken broth. I've tried applesauce, bananas, avocado, even smoothies. Whole vegetables are out. I tried eating some steamed broccoli that I made for my family's dinner the other night, and I felt like a had an alien trying to escape from my stomach.
On top of that I've been so dizzy and lightheaded that I don't feel like I can exercise safely. Every time I exert myself it gets so much worse. I figured it was time to stop when I almost fell off of my elliptical.
I am thinking of this as a pause. I am still logging on everyday so I can keep my motivation up. Hopefully my doctor and I can figure this out soon and I can hit play again. Right now she is running tests to see if it is a bleeding ulcer, which would explain so much! Is it bad that at this point I am hoping I have an ulcer? Oh well. What ever is going on I will make the best of it. I just want to get whatever it is fixed so I can drink coffee again. I feel like a zombie without my coffee. I'll keep you posted.
