Days Ninety Four To Ninety Six – Bedridden

I feel exceptionally guilty about abandoning my blog this week but I have a good excuse. I have been bedridden with either a sickness bug or food poisoning – I’m not sure which. It’s been total hell for me the last two days. I got home from my class and I was absolutely fine, had my dinner, watched some TV and went to bed. Then I woke up at ridiculous o’clock on Wednesday morning and that was me up the entire night being sick. Up and down, up and down. I got no sleep that night and I ended up having to take Wednesday off work. I spent the day in bed with no energy and no appetite. I could barely keep down water. In 2 days all I managed to eat was some toast and an ice lolly.

I also missed out on Brandon’s sister’s birthday lunch on Thursday, at a restaurant I’ve been desperate to go to so I was pretty gutted. I still couldn’t face any food and only began to feel hungry later on on Thursday evening. I ended up having an awful meal – a packet of Pasta N Sauce as it was all I fancied eating at the time. It was stodgy and sat in my stomach making me feel even worse! Bad idea.

Needless to say I haven’t been in the gym and it’s been driving me mad. I woke up this morning and I knew that evening going to work would be a struggle given how little energy I have had, so I didn’t even attempt to go work out. I’ll get back in the gym next week once I’m eating properly again, get my strength back and I’m feeling 100%.

My intake for this not-so-fabulous Friday was:

  • Nutrigrain Granola Bar
  • Graze BBQ Pistachios
  • Salad w/ Chicken
  • Salmon w/ Couscous and Asparagus

I’m glad to be feeling semi-normal and can’t wait to get back to my training. I’ll be taking it easy this weekend as I’m working tomorrow and have some plans with family on Sunday. It’s a great chance to give my body the opportunity to recover fully and I’ll bounce back pretty quickly from this I hope!
