Unfortunately I have been ill with stomach flu for the past couple of days. Hindsight being what it is, I can see how I was already falling ill well before I had serious symptoms.
Monday’s diet started off OK. I had my normal breakfast of porridge and eggs, and some gluten free chicken wraps for lunch. I suppose the first sign was feeling quite tired and blah before I went to the gym – hence the extra energy bar and glass of milk. Things did not improve during my workout, which just felt much harder than normal. I wear a heart rate monitor for all of my workouts (it’s how I get the calories burned number) and despite taking it relatively easy, found my heart rate was also much higher than normal. This should have been my first clue.
After my post workout meal my stomach was really unsettled, which I put down to indigestion and all the extra fibre. In any case I wasn’t hungry for my dinner, and ended up making myself a plate of cheese and crackers to nibble on in front of the TV. It seemed to settle my stomach so I followed it up with some salty snacks and plenty of water. I didn’t want to have more cheese as I knew it was high in fat and calories. Turns out I needn’t have worried about the extra calories as they didn’t stay put long enough to be fully absorbed. I was up most of the night with all the classic symptoms of stomach flu.
That being the case, I would take my totals for 20 March with a pinch of salt!
