Disaster At The Y!!!!

****This is kind of a gross post... so warning you :)****

Like I blogged earlier, my stomach has been feeling funny. But throughout the day it got a lot better. So I felt pretty guilty about not going to my morning pilates class.... I asked Ryan if it would be alright if I did the body pump class at 6:40 tonight at the Y, he said yes. So I got all ready to go- still feeling fine- and I decided that for dinner I would have a slimfast meal bar (LOVE those things!) I went to Target and they were having this huge sale on soyjoy bars and slimfast bars so I stocked up. Walking through Target my stomach started to gurgle a little bit... I thought I was hungry. I ended up getting to Y 30 minutes early so I decided to walk on the treadmill- I made it 10 minutes before I was in the bathroom doubled over with cramps. I REFUSE to go #2 in public (especially diarrhea!) so I sat on the couches they have in there for a minute, trying to compose myself. The cramps passed and I STILL very dumbly, thought I could do the class so I walked back upstairs and sat on the mats right next to the classroom door, waiting for class to start. As SOON as I sat down, my stomach was literally GURGLING- like I am pretty sure other people sitting next to me could hear it. And as 6:40 was nearing, more and more people are gathering around the door for the class. I finally rationalized with myself that there was no way in holy heck I could take this class tonight. So the next thing on my list was to get rid of my fitness pass. They give everyone these giant, bright neon YELLOW "Fitness Pass" signs (its as big as a piece of paper- so everyone can def. see it). I was thinking... "How am I going to get out of this? How am I going to return the pass without everyone seeing? People are going to think I wussed out... etc." It's not like you're never going to see these people again either- you see them at every body pump class! So I had to get rid of my pass very coyly... I went up to the instructor and said "I just got paged and I have to get my baby, so I guess I can't do the class tonight." Thankfully she just grabbed the pass and didn't ask any questions- and I jetted out of there. I barely made it home, but when I did get home at 6:50 or so, I ran straight into the bathroom- its now 7:40 and I am just now getting into bed from a very long hour spent on the porcelain throne.

There is DEFINITELY something going around and I am sooooo ticked. This is totally getting in the way of my bikini or bust plan! I hope I feel better by tomorrow morning... body pump at 9:40 :) We'll see...
