I broke my blogging streak.
All with good reason.

We returned from the Bahamas on Sunday. Monday morning I woke up feeling achy. I was sure I needed to get the gym asap to work out. I had lacked any and all things exercise while on vacation. That's what it's for anyways, right? Well, come lunch time I had full fever, chills and other things you don't want to read about. I'll give you a hint, it wasn't throwing up. After two days and stomach cramps increasing and getting worse, I finally went to the ER. I bypassed by Doctor's office because I hate going there. Come to find out, I had contracted some bacteria infection that had spread in my colon. Which explained the terrible stomach cramps.  They admitted me and luckily I came home Thursday night.
It's Wednesday. I still have a very weak stomach and don't understand why it doesn't feel normal yet. I have about 4 days left of antibiotics and hopefully will be back to normal soon. I still managed Body Pump at the Y today and am eating a very bland diet. That  explains why I felt like crap at the Y and have no energy. But then again, I'm scared of eating anything else! It's a lose lose for me!

But, I'm alive and healthy, and everyday I need to remember it could always be worse! I am grateful for my health…that's for sure.

  1. Oh no! I'm so sorry you've been sick. Take it easy and skip the workouts until you're recovered.
