Yesterday was quite possibly the sickest I’ve ever been. While at first I thought it was food poisoning, I’m no longer certain. I had all of the symptoms of food poisoning, but I never vomited. Furthermore, I found out that there is a stomach bug of the vilest nature traveling ‘round the lands, and perhaps it decided to attack me. Whatever the case, I was sick.
In fact, I still am feeling the effects of yesterday. All I managed to eat was a few saltine crackers and a bowl of chicken noodle soup. The ginger ale and Sprite were both helpful, too. Still, I don’t feel like eating right now. My stomach is pained, but I know I should eat.
Since I’ve been dieting and trying to lose weight, I weighed myself on Sunday morning. I decided to weigh myself last night, too, to see how much weight I lost, and it was around 5 pounds. An excellent, albeit unpleasant, weight loss program.
Really, I didn’t do much of anything yesterday. Stella and I lay around in bed until around 11 or so, then I got up and took some Excedrin for a killer headache and drank a giant glass of water. We watched an episode of Law & Order and I downloaded a demo for the PS3. By 2-ish I was ready to go back to bed, and Stella was too. Keisha got home about 4, checking on me, and then she went and picked up some more crackers and ginger ale. I got out of bed an hour or so later and played a little Batman: Arkham Asylum. An episode of House, Big Bang Theory, and CSI: Miami later, I was ready for bed again. Did a little reading and I was out of it.
I feel well enough to try work today, so we’ll see how that goes. I don’t like missing work, especially when all I can do is lay around and feel like crap. Yet, when I feel like crap, I don’t want to go to work. Quite the conundrum.
Overall, Monday was a cruddy day. Hopefully I’ll get to feeling better and the rest of the week will be great.
