Happy Humpday everyone!! :D
Don’t ask me the reason behind my title, it’s what popped up in Pandora :)
Today was my appointment with my Gastro and I made sure to take daddy with me. My parents are pretty old school and don’t know a lot about IBS so I wanted them to learn what I’m going through and that it’s not as uncommon as they think. My mom thought I was this anomaly for a long time (probably still does). The office visit went great, he explained to my dad what was going on with my body and gave me a different probiotic to take. I was on Align and it wasn’t working out. The pain and bloating was more than I could manage and when it started to interrupt my daily activities it soon became problematic. I was given Amitiza which is used to relieve stomach pain, bloating, etc. I’m starting on it today and taking it day by day. I was also given a series of blood work including a CBC and celiac disease testing. He is such a great doctor and my parents feel more relieved knowing the facts.
After reading Katie’s post yesterday on her Cookie Dough Oatmeal Cake I knew exactly what to make for breakfast!
My version of a boatmeal :) I followed Katie’s recipe except I used canned pumpkin for the applesauce, added some cinnamon, 1/3 of a nanner, and put my chocolate chips on top not inside. I also topped it with peanuts, apricot jam, and cinnamon raisin pb. Wow, this was amazing! If you haven’t tried this, get to it! Make sure you have 20 minutes to spare in the morning :)
Today was a workout day so I was excited to work up a good sweat.
- Deadlifts: 4 warm up sets with 5 repetitions each, and 1 heavy set with 165 lbs. I did 3 reps. It was heavy :O
- Arnold Presses: Weight is not increasing :( 20 lbs in each arm and I’m pretty winded as it is. Maybe for next week I’ll keep the same weight but increase repetitions instead.
- Cable Crunches and Leg lifts to finish
Today was great because I had another special delivery!! The great people from Chobani sent me this O_O
I love getting goodies in the mail ;)
I’ve only tried the basic flavor fat free Chobani so when I saw what was in the box I was pretty ecstatic .
- What’s your favorite Chobani Flavor?
(I think I’ll love them all ;))
