I have a conundrum today. I have been the best little dieter ever today. I have eaten good foods, and not to much of them. I made it to the gym this morning for my swim and I noticed that my stomach was a little bit sore. Not to bad to workout but just not feeling 100%. I have spent the weekend helping move so I just assume that I have a pulled muscle or something. I got done swimming and then changed to go to work. I rarely shower and get ready for the day at the gym but sometimes I just don’t want to go back home and change.
I went to work and noticed that my belly was still a little bit tender. At this point I started to wonder if maybe just maybe I have a hernia from picking up heavy stuff from over the weekend. There was really no time that I remember my abdomen hurting bad enough for a muscle to be pulled. Then after pondering it for a while I got online...worst decision ever! I know now why doctors don’t want patients to go online and self diagnose...because I have everything in the world wrong now. I have acute appendicitis, a hernia, and a twisted ovary. Logically I think it’s a pulled muscle, but man the internet will really screw with you head.
I finally told my sisters that I was having some abdominal pain and Sister 2 kept telling me if I run a fever or puke that I have to go to the hospital. Well, I can’t go to the hospital because after swimming this morning I realized that I was missing one very important article of clothing (the one your mom says never leave home without) and I’m not going to the hospital like that!!!!
So the injury feels a little better as the afternoon goes on and again I think it’s a pulled muscle again (I turned off the computer.) I really want to workout tonight but I don’t know if it is safe to workout with my stomach hurting cause after all, it could be something more....what is a FatGirl to do?
Since I’m on the injury front I will just go ahead and share my other injury with you too. My mega stupid has nothing to do with a workout but funny none the less. This weekend I learned how to shoot a compound bow. I am not a hunter, nor do I aspire to be one, but I like to shoot things and this was new and looked cool. Word to the wise, if they make a protective pad for a particular weapon, you should probably wear it because they made it for a reason.
When you shoot a bow the little cord comes back and pops your arm and if it pops it enough times it creates a wicked little bruise and broken blood vessels.
I had a great weekend but now I am apparently paying for it.
I highly doubt that I will workout tonight and hopefully everything will feel much better tomorrow and I can really kill it at the gym. Ill let you know how it is tomorrow!
