Let’s catch up, shall we?
I haven’t done a post in a few days, but my fingers have been itching to let you all know what’s been going on these past few days! First off, I got violently ill with Sour Stomach. Have any of you ever had this? It is ridiculous!!!
I had mentioned Wednesday that I wasn’t feeling so hot, and I forewent the gym in order to not throw up all over the place. Let me just get to the nasty details I am sure you want to hear nothing of (too bad for you). Sour Stomach brings on sour burps. I have never burped so much in all. my. life. And they smelled REALLY bad. I have experienced this before once when I had the flu, but it was after I had been throwing up non-stop for 2 days. Then I had the runs (yep, I went there), for 2 days straight.
After doing a little research online I found out that Sour stomach can be brought on by stress (none of that in my life, right?). This happens after we are in the thick of renting out our current home, Dustin’s job title change, and looking at homes to buy in a new part of the state (more on that in a little bit). I can’t imagine why I would be stressed out right now (insert sarcasm font)?!
Anyway, when you have Sour Stomach the acid in your stomach creates air (putrid air I might add), and you get extremely bloated (and burpy, and gassy). On Thursday night I thought I was starting to feel better and after eating nothing but toast I decided to get some greens and have a salad. With Beans. Bad idea. My stomach bloated so big that I couldn’t get comfortable. I felt like I was pregnant all over again (with gas kicking like a baby). I didn’t sleep almost at all that night and had to get up to go to the bathroom every 15 minutes. Just when I thought I had gotten rid of everything in my intestines, the acid in my stomach started to make me feel painfully bloated again.
Finally on Friday night (after eating nothing, but plain toast and noodles) I started to feel a little better. I had 1/2 of a sleepless night and then took some baking soda in water, and the pains in my stomach started to finally disappear.
Just in time to go look at possible homes to buy.
Fueled on Gatorade and water, we headed up to our soon-to-be home, to look at some homes. Let me tell you. It was bleak. Everything that we had seen online that we liked was already under contract. We drove around the area and got a feel for our options. In the end, we found a home that will be great, and an even greater price (and by greater I mean cheap). It has a lot of potential and is basically a blank canvas for me to get creative with.
When we moved into out current home 4 years ago, it was completely painted and decorated so if I wanted to change one thing, I had to change everything. I’m pretty excited about the opportunity to make this new home my own! Now I just pray that it all works out, and goes smoothly!
One last thing:
No weigh in today. I missed almost the entire week at the gym and ate nothing but what my stomach was asking for. I did get on the scale and the number was lower than last week, but I don’t think it is a realistic number, and I don’t want to set myself up for failure next week.
Ok, are we friends again? Good. Back to regular posting this week! Happy Monday!
