Not Sick!

Monday, December 24, 2012

Thursday, my fiance (official as of last Sunday!) picked up the stomach flu at work, but didn't realize it until after he kissed me hello and drank out of my water bottle. Luckily, my symptoms were pretty mild, no throwing up or diarrhea at all. I thought the stomach ache was from eating junk Thursday at first, but then I felt crummy for 3 days. Did not eat much at all, but still managed at least 1000 calories every day and even got into my calorie range 2 of those days. No exercise at all, no fruits, vegetables, or fiber between my stomach and being at my fiance's Swedish family Christmas. Today I'm finally feeling better, but still can't eat large amounts. Ate an apple and a large carrot, though, so that's good. Going to relax today, tomorrow's Christmas, and then hopefully Wednesday I can pick my routine back up.

    And Boo for the germs!
    But I'm glad you are feeling better!
    Don't push yourself too soon and risk a relapse, just do what you can!

    Germs are hard to stop. I hope you have a lovely Christmas with your soon to be in-laws. My sister loves the Swedish traditions for Christmas and uses them each year since she came home from a year in Sweden.
