Feeling Like a Failure, Obscene Pain

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….

  1. Keep your chin up, and go to the gym already (but don’t push yourself too hard)!! Also, look up some home remedies for the things you think might be causing the pain, and start implementing those 🙂

      • Okay, I will check back tomorrow and see if you went to the gym! (yup, I almost don’t have anything better to do, and maybe it’ll be a motivation for you 🙂 )

      • I went, I went! It felt AWESOME 🙂

        I don’t know how I get in these ruts where the gym sounds unappealing, because I always feel great after. Not to mention I wake up at the ass crack of dawn so I have my WHOLE day to enjoy. Thanks for being motivation for me, I really appreciate the extra push 🙂
