Urgh and holidays

Have had some sort of stomach virusy thing which is why I haven't been on of late.

Haven't felt majorly nauseous its mainly that food seems to be going straight through me, I am spending a ridiculous amount of time in the toilet and its been like this for 2/3 days - unpleasant to say the least.

If I try to exercise I just run out of energy after a few minutes and end up exhausted, I guess because I am not getting many nutrients from the food I am eating .

Pro's - zero interest in much else apart from bland, easy to eat foods so junk food has no appeal!

Con's - can't exercise and I am only 2 days from starting my holiday so hoping it will sort itself out by then else see Dr before I leave Monday morning.

On the upside its a very warm day here today so put on a pair of shorts I haven't worn for about 6 months and they fell straight off me :)

I probably won't weigh in for the next few weeks - I leave Monday morning my time, driving down the coast from Sydney to Melbourne and staying in a few little spots along the way, staying with a friend for a week then heading back and spending a few days pottering in my little garden as spring makes itself known (I think that last bit is the part I am looking forward to most! lol) :) - I am planning to focus on being healthy and eating properly as often as I can, logging my food and wearing my fitbit, so hopefully I will maintain my current weight!

Have a great few weeks all :)


EDIT Woohoo! After trying to avoid taking any kind of medication for my problem I caved in yesterday and bought some stuff from the chemist and this morning woke up feeling like $1,000,000!

SO relieved and a good holiday will be had :)

  • Hope your bug goes soon Dave! The holiday will fix you if nothing else does! Maybe make a note of all the most positive things you've had from posting on here, as a kind of reminder to keep you on track while you're away. I also find simple things like having an apple everyday helps me stay in the healthy eating mindset while away. Hope you find something to wear and have an excellent few weeks :)
