Today was the first day since Tuesday I have managed to keep some food inside me - that was until I went out to a 50th birthday dinner ...................... at an Indian restaurant !! The food was OK - definitely not worth waiting nearly two hours to get our main meals served (there were only 10 of us and the restuarant wasn't that busy). Not sure if it was just the Indian food or the fact that I ate too quickly because I was hungry, but my stomach didn't feel all that flash by the time dessert was served (I didn't have any) but I have spent more time in the bathroom since I got home than I have in any other room !!!
I was feeling so much better today - I very nearly went for a run tonight - instead I went and bought a pair of boots and then bought a lovely winter jacket - got home and got ready to go out to dinner. I am planning a run on Sunday but am bracing myself in case I am not able to. I was OK with not exercising this week because I have not been well but I was so looking forward to a run on Sunday - now I just hope I can deal with not running if I am still feeling crook then. On top of that, if I don't start getting better real soon - like by tomorrow - A is going to be nagging me to go to the dr but I have too much planned for tomorrow to worry about going to the doctor.
This is not a pity post - it is just the way it is. And I need to deal with it and move on. To all those people who see me as inspirational (why I have absolutely no bloody idea), I am so sorry that I haven't been able to provide much in the way of inspiration lately - only one run this week and it was a cr*ppy one at that BUT I guess some weeks are just like that. The trick for me is accepting that it is OK not to exercise when I am sick.
