The case of food poisoning

I was fine.  I was ready to roll.  I was feeling fine Monday when I returned home.  I was just really hungry and that’s what did me in.  I had some Indian food and I got sick.  It’s just a classic case of food poisoning.  I teach 5AM on Tuesday and 30 minutes before that it wasn’t going to well but I had to teach my class.

It was really sad that I couldn’t give it my all in class because Willie actually came to my class.  I was too afraid I was going to upchuck on everyone so I basically just told everyone what to do.

I was reduced to a diet of ginger ale and Saltines.  That’s all I’ve been able to handle.

So that’s where I’ve been. More specifically, I’ve been sleeping it off.  Everyone seems to think I’m pregnant but I’m sorry that is NOT the case. Yesterday I was able to go back to work but I wasn’t able to eat. That kind of made me sad because I really couldn’t enjoy National Running Day!

Today things are going better.  I’ve been hungry and I was able to teach my class this morning without feeling sick.

I don’t think I need to say it, but I will anyway.  I won’t be eating any Indian food for a LONG while.  It’s a shame because Willie loves it so much but me and cuisine are taking a break.

This kind of messed up my blog schedule but I’ll be posting my recaps from San Diego very soon.

I haven’t disappeared

I haven’t disappeared

You probably visited the blog a couple of times and noticed I haven’t posted anything.  I really haven’t been feeling well and the last thing I’ve wanted to do was blog.  I always start off with the best intentions but then it doesn’t happy. I’m still here.  I just don’t feel well.  I’ve gone to the doctor and been all checked out.  I really just think this is a case of dehydration. Blogging will return shortly but that doesn’t mean you can’t look at some great stuff on the site. I promise I will return to you soon with more… View Post

Done with being sick so I’m trying to get back to normal

Yep I was sick!  That’s all I could talk about but I’m glad that it’s passed.  I actually want to get moving again.  I guess the best thing about getting sick was it happened after a marathon which forced me into rest/recovery mode.  Things are almost back to normal but I can’t hear out of my ear!  It’s still blocked up. The big lesson to learn from my sickness incident is: listen to your body.  If you’re sick it’s best to get over it instead of trying to push through it.  Kind of funny coming from me since I ran… View Post

The worst possible time to be sick

The worst possible time to be sick

I’m traveling to Washington DC tomorrow and guess what?  I’m sick.  This is the worst possible time for me to have anything.  It could be worse though because I did get a flu shot. I’m pretty sure I’m sick because I was in milder temps this past weekend and then returned home to the sauna. That’s why I’m behind on the blog stuff. I’ll be catching up shortly. I woke up yesterday feeling ok. I got up to teach my class. There was nothing unusual going on there. Just a good ole cycle workout. I even wore a skirt yesterday. I… View Post

The story about my flu shot

The story about my flu shot

Since I’m going to be doing A LOT of traveling from now until the end of the year.  I decided that I should get a flu shot.  I think everyone should get a flu shot.  I also thought it was wise to get a flu shot because I’m also running a few marathons and that’s going to tear down my immune system.  After running these marathons, I’m going to have to get on a plane too. Before I got any further, GET A FLU SHOT! I got my flu shot. I first went to Walgreens because I wanted to get… View Post
