Pain Pain Go Away
So for those of you who didn’t know, I suffer from pretty tormenting IBS. Yesterday turned into a bad day. It started off as a mild stomach cramp which later escalated to nauseousness, dizziness, distended stomach, bloat, and constant pain. I laid in bed wishing it would all just go away. Not a restful sleep to say the least. This morning I felt odd. Usually by 9ish when I wake up I’m ravenous for breakfast. Not today. The thought of food repulsed me. I felt that hot oats would just bother me more so I made overnight oats for later.
While waiting for the discomfort to subside, I figured it might be good to do some exercise so off I went to the gym. The workout did me good. I wasn’t hungry and finished all my sets with no problem.
Today I did: Leg Press, step ups, push ups, lat pull downs, wood choppers, hyper-extensions, and leg raises.
My push ups are improving and I can do 10 solid ones. I know it’s not a lot, but when I was in high school I couldn’t even make it past 2. All throughout my workout I felt fine and strong.
When I got home this was waiting for me.
Can we say ooiaj? 😀 Ok so technically the jar is empty lol but still good for making over
night hours oats.
In the mix we have:
33g of oats, 1/4 cup milk, 10g chia, 2 ounces of Dannon light and fit yogurt,
1/4 banana & chopped strawberries.
Later topped with lots of cereal and a dollop of cinnamon raisin pb.
Delicious? You betcha 😉
All in all it’s been a relaxing day. My stomach hasn’t decided to cooperate with me so I’ve been playing it safe and eating light. Lunch was a simple turkey and cheese wrap and dessert was as followed.
Here we have some yogurt, banana soft serve, cinnamon, 1/2 chocolate vitatop and some caramel syrup
Have I mentioned I’m a bit obsessed with Reddi-wip?
Hope everyone is having a fantastic Friday!! I’m off to do some more studying and catch the latest Jersey Shore.
- Is anyone else staying in tonight?
