Reaching up

I woke up at 5:30 this morning, rolled over and was not pleased to discover that the gut pain is still with me. Huh. At least I slept well. And it's eased off to a really irritating niggle, like a pin sticking in my side, instead of the feeling that someone's tying my intestines in knots.

I briefly thought about staying in bed, but having missed training yesterday, my conscience wasn't about to let me off the hook today. So I was up and on the spin bike at 5:45 for a rather long session. I'm glad I made the effort now.

I also had no food packed for today, since I spent all day yesterday in my PJs doing nothing. A quick forage in the fridge, freezer and fruit bowl though, and I have the following all ready:

- Cottage cheese, banana and walnuts.
- Grilled chicken (a bit measly on the portion size, but it'll do), half a bunch of asparagus and an individual pack of frozen mixed veggies.
- Fruit salad - orange, apple and blueberries.

I'll upsize my protein a bit at dinner, and that should see me right on target.

Weight is down a bit, and I expect that to continue over the next few days. I'm still not happy about where I'm sitting, but I've done everything I can do, so there's no point griping about it. I'm stomping on any negative thoughts that pop into my head (the ones like OMG, only 10 more weeks and you're nowhere near where you should beeeeee!!), because those never do me any good....

I'm feeling a bit low on energy, even for a Monday morning, but I know this will pass. An early night or two and staying on track with nutrition and training should see me in a better position and feeling a lot better by the end of the week.

The only way out of here is UP, and that's where I'm going.
