The doctor called me yesterday and told me I had Giardia. We have no idea how I got it. Usually people get it when traveling to different countries or camping. I have done none of those things. It's basically a parasite that lives in my intestines, and it prevents me from absorbing nutrients. It makes sure the good goes right through me. I have almost lost 20 lbs in the last two-three weeks. That is a lot of weight.
My doctor gave me some meds and said I should be feeling much better soon. I took it last night and this morning, I could tell a difference. I woke up at 4 am to run with Nixa Running. It has been killing me to see all their posts on facebook and seeing them run and me not being able to be out there. I got all packed up and ready to go and could not find my keys. It took Jenn and I 90 minutes to find them. They were in the couch, and we looked there 3 different times. I was able to make it to boot camp a few minutes late and got a workout in. Let me tell you... it felt great! Missing a whole week was horrible. I love my time to workout.
I am just happy I am going to be better, and I am happy I can get back on track with working out. I guess a positive side effect is that I lost a good chunk of weight from all of this. I will hopefully keep it off and keep losing the weight!
