Stomach Pain

I have an ulcer, and it's been acting up over the past few days. This is a total bummer, since sharp, stabbing pains in my gut generally means I don't feel like exercising or eating gaseous foods like broccoli and cauliflower.

In fact, all I want to do is eat soothing foods (like noodles) and lie on the sofa. Bummer, eh?

I am debating about whether or not I should force myself to exercise today. I slacked a bit last week, so I really don't want to skip today's workout. On the other hand, my stomach is clenching tighter than a miser's fist around a shiny new penny.

I guess I'm going to try and workout, and just see how it goes.

On another note, today is the beginning of my April Challenge. I *almost* stepped on the scale today out of habit. Then I remember that April is No Scale Month! This should be a interesting test of my will.


Forced myself to get on the treadmill. The first mile was kinda painful, but after that I breezed through the workout. Total miles today: 5.75. I'm sooooo glad I made myself exercise!

Sorry to hear you've been feeling bad, but congrats on not making it on the scale!

Awh bless you - I hear having an ulcer can be very painful.

Well done for not stepping on the scales! Must have been a tough one.
