I had a good/terrible weekend depending on how you look at it. Our boss took us out to Ruby Tuesday on Friday. I have the worst experiences at this restaurant. I got the chicken salad and it was really yummy.

Got back to work and about an hour later I had the worst stomach cramps.... I stood up and I felt like my butt was going to explode(TIM sorry)! i spent the Entire afternoon in the bathroom at work. I was mortified and embarrassed to no ends. I finally got the courage to go home and that's when the puking started... i tried to take an imodium pill with some water and I couldn't even keep that down. Then I decided to go to sleep, well that didn't work out because I got this head splitting head ache. It was bad... i was crying, shaking and in severe pain.

Our neighbor ended up taking me to the doctor, i didn't think I could make it myself. Doc said I possibly got food poisoning. Not necessarily from the way the food was cooked but rather the way it was prepared. So someone didn't wash the lettuce properly or wash their hands (EW!). Yesterday I was doing better.... but not great. I still spent alot of time in the bathroom.

Bottom line I think I lost alot of weight but it isn't good weight to lose. I haven't been able to eat since Friday and now I am hungry. This weekend I wasn't hungry at all... but now I want FOOD! Real food too not the "BRAT" (bananas, rice, apple sauce, toast) diet that the doc told me to follow. I want a nice sandwich or something. I'm at work and I'm terrified if I eat something I will end up in the bathroom again

    Aww Melissa I am so sorry you got food poisoning. That is awful. I think you should stay away from Ruby Tuesday's it seems to bring you nothing but problems. Maybe try eating something small and work your way up to see how your stomach will feel. I really hope you feel better soon.

      Well I'm glad the crackers and apple helped. Hopefully after getting lots of rest your body will be rid of whatever is making you feel sick.

        I think I did pretty well this weekend. I've noticed when the weather is warmer I don't eat as much. Plus, I had a pretty busy weekend which didn't leave much time to eat. While I was cleaning I went through some old Shape magazines and ripped out some of the workouts that I want to try.

          Good for you! Do you have any good workouts you want to share? I need some good ones so I can change up my routine.

            ~MINI VENT: Okay my worst nightmare came true. I am plateauing. I cannot for the life of me lose an ounce! I started incorporating weight training so I don't know if that has anything to do with it but all of a sudden I am much hungrier and have less motivation to do anything. The fact that my weight is not budging is making the little devil on my shoulder keep nagging me to go eat a cheeseburger to feel better. Ughhhh!! Summer is almost here!

            Mel, I'm sorry you got so sick!! you know what's funny, well not really funny, but coincidental, I used to go to Ruby Tuesday a lot because it was close to work and I liked to get the salad bar. Everytime I ate there I had really bad stomach cramps and ended up in the bathroom. I didn't get as sick as you did by any means, but after a few times of this happening to me I decided not to eat there anymore. I was wondering if they wash the salad with something that could be upsetting to my stomach because it was almost instant I'd get back to the office and I'd be in the bathroom and my lunch would be gone (sorry if thats TMI!)

              Eeew sorry to be gross but I skeeve salad bars. I'm a little bit of a germaphobe.

              Well thanks to Maura I've decided I'm going to bring a chicken and just grill it instead. I might bring some shrimp too, that would be yummy.

              Unfortunately Jill I know there won't be any salad. These are not salad type people. They eat unhealthy food all the time. LOL.

                So I haven't been very active on the board the last week cause life has been hectic for me. I had three events last week in the evenings that I was managing. The walk is coming up in two weeks and needless to say I am busy. In addition, my boss quit and I am going for her position. There has been a lot of political stuff going on with that and making me freak out.

                Long story short I have not been eating right or exercising at all. I bailed out on my trainer last week and threw all my healthy eating habits out the window. I am expected a gain tomorrow, but I am ready for it.

                I know I can do this!

                I am proud of myself cause my coworkers were going to go to Tommy's Burgers (greasy chili burgers) for lunch and I said no. I am going to Wahoo's instead and now they are all coming. LOL. Yay, for eating and staying healthy.
