Well, #strongfor23in2011 didn't start off so well. January 1 came around, as did a sushi dinner and WHAM! Food poisoning hit me like a semi truck. It was very unpleasant. I lost 4 lbs in one night and I couldn't stay out of the bathroom or keep anything down. You're supposed to eat plain yogurt when you have food poisoning to help "bring back the good bacteria." Well, I was sick for so long that the mucus lining in my small intestine that produces lactase (processes dairy) was gone so yogurt kept fueling my illness. Yada yada yada. The challenge didn't start off well, so on January 7 at 12am midnight, I started 2011 all over again. So, I'm now onto 2011.2!
After recovering and finally having enough energy I got back on my bike trainer and began working out regularly, and sticking to 5 days on, 2 days off. Here's Alan's follow up report as well. Not bad!
