flu bug

Sunday, February 23, 2014

Well, it happened. I woke up in the middle of the night on Thursday and just knew something was not right with my stomach :( :( My husband had the flu two days before and I tried so hard to be extra careful. Clean, clean, clean. Sanitize, sanitize, sanitize. Wash hands, wash sheets. Wore myself out I guess!
Anyway, I did get some kind of bug. My stomach was not happy. So Friday I spent much of the day on the couch doing much of nothing. Fortunately, my stomach did no more revolting, but still was not happy.
So my diet for the day was some saltines, a graham cracker, and a little tiny bit of 7 up. My stomach is still not settled down yet today, so I am just going to let it simmer down. I have not felt hungry yet today. I have been drinking plenty of water. I am going to try to refrain from eating until I feel hunger. I could just nibble on stuff, but this seemed like a good time for me to remember to feed by body when it needs to be fed. Maybe it doesn't need to be fed just yet.
I am feeling better today and have more energy than yesterday. Maybe I will have enough energy to walk on the treadmill for a bit; just a slow walk.

    Hope you take things slowly till you're eating properly again and fully recovered from your stomach bug. Strange, but I had much the same problem yesterday morning, so all the exercise I"d scheduled the evening before, I had to delete this morning. I was feeling ok again by mid-afternoon, but wasn't willing to risk another episode while dog walking, so it was a lazy day on the recliner for me with lots of water too, plus some Sparking.

    I agree with Raesun - be careful about returning to exercise too early. Hope tomorrow is a better day.

    emoticon And only eat light food. Lots of fluids. 7 up is good for upset stomach. Careful exercising cause your body needs rest to heal and recuperate. Sounds like you are doing everything right.

    Take care and rest rest rest.
