This is my little Siamese named Connor - giving me the evil eye!
Well I'd been patting myself on the back lately that I'd only missed one workout during this entire programme - and look what happens... I go and get sick! I now think that my steady decrease in energy this week has had something to do with a bit of a stomach bug I picked up.
Wednesday night I had an upset tummy. Thursday morning I got up and went to the gym as normal, but halfway through my back/bi's exercises I started to physically get the shakes and felt nauseous. So I stopped and went home. Felt ok through the day at work, just tired. Then after meal 4 I developed the worst stomach pains, so I went home, and spent all night doubled over with stomach cramps and acid reflux. My partner went and got me some Mylanta from the chemist, which seemed to help. So unfortunately I had to skip a workout today - BUMMER! I feel better today, but just completely without energy.
The good thing is that I only missed one meal - last nights dinner. I just couldn't eat. I'm going to try to get up early tomorrow (Saturday) and take the dogs for a big walk before breakfast, but I'll have to see how the energy levels hold out. It might end up being a walk around the block!
We've got a busy day ahead tomorrow! I've got to get up and do the dog walk, then the dog-wash man arrives at 8am, then we're going down to the Gold Coast to test drive some cars that my partner is interested in, then home, housework, groceries etc. Then back down the coast - I'm catching up with a girlfriend I havent seen in a while, while the boys are going to watch some kickboxing!
