I’m sitting here in debate with myself, to decide on whether or not to go to the gym this morning. I feel sick, but not in the I-have-a-cold kind of way. I was up most of the night tossing and turning feeling nauseated, and I have no idea why (and I’m not pregnant). I ate really good yesterday, I checked my blood sugar levels before I went to bed because I thought it may be out of whack, but it was 96 which is basically perfect. I did have broccoli and apples, which could be doing a number on my GI.
I’ve eaten a banana and a pineapple Cobani yogurt to see if this will help me feel better and then maybe I will try to go after Hanna’s morning nap. I sure hope I feel better, I get paranoid about missing a gym session 2 days before a weigh in.
This morning (feeling sick), I got Hanna up and went to turn on the tv so I could just lay down and not throw up everywhere, and was happy to see that all of the cable channels were at a stand still (sarcasm at its finest). The only channels that worked are the channels with the news on them. Normally, I would have gotten up started some laundry, or just go to the gym earlier than expected, but again I don’t feel well so I watched the news for about 45 minutes and tried not to get too depressed.
That made me really want to go to the gym, so that I could get out of the house. I started feeling a little better, but then after walking around a bit I felt the waves of nausea and decided that I should probably sit down for a bit. Argh! I hate this feeling!
I don’t like surprises. I mentioned this in the past, but I am a COMPLETE creature of habit. If my day does not follow my routine, I feel weird and like something is wrong. I know this relates to my weight loss and I can’t let days like this get to me. So why not make some sick day goals? First off, I really will go to the gym if I start feeling better, I’m hoping that this is just a bathroom issue and will be taken care of before the morning is over.
Continue to drink copious amounts of water. I’m sure this can only help the situation. And of course, continue to track. This could also be because I just started taking my thyroid medication after not having it for a week and a half. I really need to get better at that.
So send some positive vibes to my stomach, in hopes that I will be able to make it to the gym, and hopefully I will be back later with a more motivational post!
Do you have days like this? How Often?
I NEVER get sick so it makes it that much more frustrating when it happens!
