Resurrecting My Schedule

This week has been rough.  I had a great weekend last week, and it seemed like I was going to have a great week to follow.  And then I woke up sick on Thursday.

I did make it to work that day, but my boss told me that I had the option to work from home, which I used on Friday.  The illness was absolutely horrible, but I am feeling a little better today.

My schedule, eating, exercising, working, was thrown completely off kilter.  I have eaten nothing but crackers and chicken broth for a couple of days.  I tried to keep my vitamin intake the same, but I know that is off a bit too.

Good news though.  I’m down another pound.  Bad news, I spent what feels like forever, in bed completely immobile.


I might try to go out and get some lunch and pick up some groceries today, just to get out of the house for a bit, but I think I am still going to keep inside and rest for the lion’s share of the weekend.

Maybe tomorrow I will go for a walk.

I have not had a cold for nearly two years.  I was not sure how my post surgical body would handle being sick, especially if I become nauseated, which I did this week.  I did not vomit, thankfully, but there were definitely some close calls.

I have been very lucky, post surgery.  Unlike many people who have had a gastric by-pass, I have not had very many incidents of vomiting or nausea after eating.  In truth, I have not vomited at all.  Partially because I have been very, very careful about what I eat, especially in the months immediately after the surgery.  I really allowed my stomach to heal well before I started introducing new foods into my diet.  I did make some mistakes, I cannot lie about that, the whole lamb burger incident for example, but mostly I have tried to be very careful.

Now that this illness is on the decline, I am not so worried about being ill now.  I still do not welcome any illness, but I think I feel better about how my post surgical self will weather such a cold.  I am so afraid of getting sick to my stomach and doing damage if I do vomit.  I guess now that my stomach has healed from the surgery the danger of damage is not as bad, but still, I’m sure there is some risk.

Anyway, I don’t want to end this post talking about that, so let me say this.  I lost another pound!!  Yay!

Have a great weekend!
