Hey guys, can’t really say I’ve had a fun and crazy weekend. After work Friday, I went into the gym to hopefully do some weights. I hopped on the treadmill to walk for my warm up, but instantly wanted to throw up. After 1.25 miles and 3 sets of back extensions, I got the hell out of there and nearly died on my living room floor 15 minutes later.
I spent the rest of my Friday night on the couch, throwing back jello and ginger ale, while watching TV.
I slept from 9:30 pm until 9:30 am, and cleaned the apartment when I woke up. I was feeling slightly better, so I attempted a run. I decided to drive 20 minutes home to use the basement treadmill so that I had a trash can and a fan near me at all times. Worst idea ever. It took me almost an hour and a half to run 3 miles and walk 1 mile. I had to throw walking increments and breather breaks into the run because I felt so crappy. I’m seriously so stubborn though and refused to quit until I reached 3 miles.
After that, I went home, showered, had a protein shake (the only thing I was able to stomach all day), and then succumbed to the couch from 3-10.
The stomach bug was at its worst, and I literally couldn’t move. I felt like I had wasted a beautiful Saturday, but I literally couldn’t leave my house in fear of getting sick in public.
I woke up this morning feeling like my normal self, which was about time after 4 days of having the stomach bug. If you want a way to lose several pounds, the stomach bug is the way to go!
I enjoyed an open-face pb & j sandwich before hitting the gym and attempting a workout. I took it easy and only ran 3.5 miles and walked half a mile. After my run, I completed several lunge cable-pulls before focusing on my core.
It felt so good to get a good workout in, and I can’t wait to tackle several classes this week, including Reps & Sets tomorrow, and Body Pump on Wednesday.
The rest of my day included buying several bridal shower gifts for one of my closest friends, Amber, grocery shopping, veggie prep, and helping my Dad install a bathroom cabinet in our bathroom.
I also swung by to pay my respects to Jaime’s Pep who passed away this past week. I hadn’t seen Jaime in a long time, and while it wasn’t under the best circumstances, it was so good to see her.
Now, Allie, Kris and I are going to head to The Farm to grab dinner with Allie’s college friends Katie and Kenney. Allie, Kris and Katie have been trying to set Kenney and I up for months now, and it’s my first time meeting him, so I’m nervous! This will be my first real meal since Tuesday, and I plan on ordering the juiciest burger EVERRRRRR!
