Changes of Plans

on February 21, 2012

I intended to compete at US Grappling’s Richmond tournament this weekend, but my body has other plans. Sunday night, I got violently sick and spent the night sleeping on the bathroom floor just to be close to the toilet. (Yeah, TMI, I know.) Yesterday I spent the entire day in bed and eventually could keep down some Pedialyte and ginger ale. Today I still slept a lot, but could also sit up on the couch for a few hours at a time; I also graduated to chicken noodle soup and Coke. Hopefully tomorrow I can start working from home a little.

The only bright spot in all this is that I did finally make the weight I’d been aiming for last week — although it’s not a method that I’ll ever want to try again.

Anyway, so I’m taking all this week off from BJJ, instead of next week as I’d planned. (Maybe next week, too; we’ll see how it’s going.)

    Thank you for being responsible and not sharing your germs with your classmates! Hope you feel better soon.

      It had nothing to do with responsibility, actually, and more to do with not being able to get out of bed and having no energy to do anything once I did.

      Oh, well, I’d planned to take some time off anyway. My body is just demanding it sooner rather than later.
