Ups and Downs

Well my week started off great. I did a PB on leg press on Tuesday - 120kgs woohoo! Managed to push out 3 sets of 10, so could definetely have gone heavier too, although I'm still cautious of my knees. Wednesday morning I did a kick arse shoulder/bi/tri session too.

On Thursday I went for a day trip to our Maryborough office... thats a looooong way for a day trip! 4 hours there, 4 hours in the Maryborough branch, and 4 hours back - I was shattered by the time I got home - thats a lot of time in the car! On Thursday night I started cooking dinner and started to feel a bit ordinary. After dinner I started to feel indigestion coming on, and by the time I went to bed I was doubled over with stomach pains, cramps, nausea... those same symptoms that I was getting last year when I went and had all those tests.

My whole lower abdominal area was puffed up and tender to touch yesterday, and it hurt a bit to walk so I obviously didn't do any exercise. I also was hesitant to eat anything in case it set my stomach off again, so I didn't eat anything until about 11am. Today I'm much better, but still feeling a little unsettled in the stomach.

Not sure what set it off this time, everyone keeps telling me its just nervousness for the operation on Monday. I did not eat or drink anything out of the ordinary. I am so annoyed that its screwed up my whole exercise schedule, and particularly so because there wont be any exercise next week until the surgeon says its ok.

Anyway, enough whinging. There is positives in everything, and in this instance I lost 1.5kgs in a day and a half!

Hi Hilary, sounds as though you've been a busy chicken of late! I hope your abdominal pain clears up soon, it doesn't sound nice! I hope you're not catching the gastro bug that's going around. Good luck with your eye surgery. You won't know youreslf :)

Hi Hils,
Every thing will go great on Monday I just know it will!
Have you ever had allergy testing done at all? It could be that you are allergic to the strangest little thing and that sets you off. combined with subconscious nerves as well.
I am toying with the idea of going to the INBA comp the weekend after next. it would be good to catch up with everyone. Plus Mark is away in moranbah so it will give me something to do. Let me know if you are going too.
have a great weekend,
andrea

Hope you feel better soon Hils! You must be fairly anxious about this surgery, I certainly know that I would be!

Good luck with everything. Don't worry about the missed exercise there will be plenty of time to throw yourself into that all of this stress is over.

Thinking of you :)

Hi Hilary sounds like you are pretty busy at the moment and also have a lot on your mind. Just keep doing the best you can but make sure you listen to your body and rest when needed. I'm not very good at resting either but am learning very quickly that your health is number one. I also have surgery coming up in a week and have been told no exercise for a week. Its going to kill me not to train for a week but I know I will recover so much quicker with a bit of rest. Take Care and good luck with the operation. Luv Hilds
