I guess that it had to happen. Again. I slipped up big time this past weekend in both exercise and eating habits. Gahhhhh!
It started last weekend. I got a very serious stomach bug, went to the doctor, basically didn’t do a ton of exercise all week from feeling awful. I know that it’s probably not my fault that I got so sick. I mean, I may not have washed my hands thoroughly enough, so it might have been.
Note to everyone: Wash your hands thoroughly when handling chicken!
Being set back again and by a whole week is nonetheless disappointing, no matter whose fault that stomach bug was. All that I can do is be thankful that I am finally at the end of my tummy woes and can get back into the swing of things.
Literally! I am excited to start incorporating kettlebell circuits back into my exercise routine. Also, my husband and I are shopping for good prices on barbells and plate weights, which is also exciting. We don’t have a ton of room in our apartment, but we can do bear complexes with a 5′ bar, at the very least. That’s something to be excited about! Obviously, if we can do bear complexes, we can do clean and jerks, military presses… The list goes on! I can do hip thrusters with the bar lightly loaded until we get 45 lb. plates (probably not for a couple of months – them things are expensive!). Yay!
Anyway, yeah I had a bad week — I might not win the Diet Bet that I’m in, depending on whether or not this sodium weight falls off; my stamina is probably a bit less than it was before I got sick. Still, there is a lot to be thankful for.
