Because of the high I got off of the Pure Barre class, I decided to go back to the gym. I packed my gym bag and made a pact with my carpooler to motivate each other to go to the gym on the days we carpooled, which was at least 3 times a week. Last night, I went to the gym and jogged for 25 minutes and stretched for another 20 minutes. I was feeling good and wanted to get back to running 5-6 miles back in August when I was training for the half-marathon.
I may have overdone it though with Disneyland, Pure Barre, and gym back to back. I woke up this morning with chest tightness accompanied by sharp pains every time I took a breath. I had similar pains when I had the flu in March. And when I was traveling in November when I went to Australia and back in August when I was in Peru. Not sure if there’s a correlation to air travel and the chest pains yet. Still observing the phenomenon.
I’m soooo hungry. I had to stop eating solid foods since midnight last night for the procedures tomorrow. All I’ve had to eat all day is liquids, mostly chicken stock and apple juice. Tonight I started the Moviprep, a prescription medicine used to clean the bowels before a colonoscopy. It tasted so gross. I almost puked every time I took a sip. And I had to drink 2-liters of the stuff plus another liter of apple juice. Then it was time to make friends with the porcelain god. Thank goodness I didn’t try to start this while at work. All that liquid I drank earlier had to come out somehow. And boy did it come out.
