Here's the deal.
After feeling like I was coming down with the flu on Thursday (and not working out) I took my 'cold and flu' medicine and went to bed at 8:00. Seriously, not long after my preschooler goes to bed. I was out like a light and slept for TEN HOURS! I honestly can't remember the last time I've been able to do that.
I woke up Friday morning feeling much better, and with my period, a week early. *sigh*.
So, I'm pretty sure T.O.M. was to blame for the whole ordeal. What the heck was that?! I've experienced headaches or a back ache, and some band tightness just before T.O.M. arrives, but never like this. This was full-on chills, nausea, inability to eat anything (even pudding), and all around feeling like crap.
I took Friday off from the gym as well since I was not feeling back to 100% yet. I also stuck to full liquids all day, venturing out a bit and having oatmeal for dinner. It went down fine. Phew!
I went back to the gym for a great spin class this morning. I'm still tired, and the band is still too tight to attempt solid food, but I'm pretty sure it was all T.O.M,'s fault, so I haven't called the doc yet.
I'll give it the weekend and if I'm not able to eat solids by Monday, I'm going in for yet another un-fill. Isn't this backwards? I'm supposed to be wanting fills at this point, right? Ah, fickle Phil.
Now on to the weigh in.
I managed to drop a little weight this week which is pretty typical for me during the dreaded T.O.M. which brings me to 158.5 and a grand total weight loss of...
I'll take it. I like that I'm back on the losing track. I just wish it wasn't from being flat out unable to eat!
I'm hoping for a better week this week. I miss chewing!
Happy weekend everyone. Enjoy this mild winter weather we all seem to be having.
