I’ve been feeling more down and out about my ‘skipping the gym’ habit. Today marks day 4 in a row, I had every intention to hit the gym this morning.
I’ve been experiencing this HORRIBLE pain in my upper abdomen for the last week and a half, it started after lunch every day and would increasingly get worse and worse, a radiate towards my back. At first I brushed it off as, “Maybe I shouldn’t have eaten that soup.” Then I ate salad. After that I said, “Maybe the dressing was bad.” Sunday it was awful, but the worse was yesterday afternoon. The pain has been more consistent after meals, not JUST lunch time. Last night I woke up in pain at 12:30pm, it messed up my sleep schedule since I had woken up thinking it was time to go to the gym. I went back to bed and just decided that sleep was more important. Maybe it wasn’t the best decision, maybe I COULD have gone to the gym.
This pain is getting worse and worse. Today I barely touched my salad, mainly because the leaves were so soggy, but a few bites in I started feeling that awful growing pain in my abdomen. It’s really beginning to interrupt my life and stress me out! I really REALLY don’t want to go to the doctor and shovel out money to be a guinea pig when I probably have one of the million things I read about online. I also don’t have the TIME to go to the doctor. I’m cross training a new position at work all week, have my Power Point for my Winter Training due on Friday, we’re completely 100% FULL this week, and it’s MY week to set ALL the rooms! Not to mention, this weekend we have a Christmas party to plan for!
Kinda of unnecessarily freaking out right now. I just need to pump some iron and get my sweat on…. hands down. I just need to do it.
I need to figure out what’s wrong with me too. It doesn’t matter how much peppermint tea I drink and anti acids I take, it hurts and will gradually get worse in a few hour time frame until it subsides. Seriously hope I’m okay. Starting to feel the winter blues….
