Last Week was a TOTAL Write Off (and The Sox Box Giveaway Winners)!
Posted Feb 11 2013 9:13pm
Sorry I haven't posted in a week, the last 7 days have pretty much been a total write off as far as my diet and workouts have been concerned. Monday at work is when it all started, I had about an hour to go before the end of my work day.... I stood up to talk to my class and thats when a sudden wave of nausea hit me and I had to run out of class to the washroom... I'll spare you the details. I barely made it through the rest of the day.
I went home, curled up on the couch took some vitamin C, drank tons of liquids and pretty much spent the rest of the week on the couch. I attempted to go to work Tuesday however, I thought I may have just eaten something that upset my stomach (this happens frequently), I ended up feeling equally sick on Tuesday, my stomach was a mess and for some reason I was dead tired, I mean absolutely exhausted even though I was getting enough sleep.....so I decided to take the next two days off work, rest and recover. The one thing that really brightened my day was that I received a little treat in the mail from Vitamin Water, it was six samples of Vitamin Water Zero's new flavours! Along with the samples was a really cute reusable tote/grocery bag. It definitely made my day, so big thanks to Vitamin Water Zero!
My diet was not very good since I wasn't eating as much as usual because I didn't want to eat anything that would upset my tummy or that would go right through me (sorry if that was TMI lol), so I stayed away from my usual veggies and fruits or anything will fiber. On Saturday I had more energy, my stomach was feeling better (not 100% but pretty close) so I decided to hit the gym. I made it through a 2 mile treadmill run before I started feeling rough again, so I listen to my body.... I stopped running and then went on the bike for another 20 minutes. Better than nothing!
I was happy to be feeling better by Saturday because Dan and I and some friends had tickets to the Tragically Hip Concert (a classic Canadian band for those of you who don't know them, check them out), I had seen them before but it was Dan's first time seeing them live so he was pretty excited. Before the concert we went for dinner at a local Italian restuarant called Avanti Trattoria, I ordered the gnocchi... yes its true I ate gluten.... honestly after being sick all week and not being able to eat I HAD to put some serious carbs in my body, and it was delicious and I don't feel guilty at all! Well maybe a little since I barely workout this past week!
some post concert Guinness and wine!
Now that I am feeling better I will back to my regular gym routine, I started today off with a nice 4 mile run and I should have one or two new healthy recipes for you all so stay tuned!
