Pain Pain Go Away

02/25/2011 at 5:37 pm 38 comments

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? πŸ˜€ Ok so technically the jar is empty lol but still good for making overnight 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 πŸ˜‰


I like a good close up πŸ™‚

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?

    omg I’m completely OBSESSED with reddiwhip! I haven’t had it in a whole month but before that I was going through a can (alone!) every 3-4 days. Kind of ridic. I know! Coffee always helps when my tummy hurts, as well as a bowl of roasted veggies with marinara. Fiber is always a plus…omg I know your pain though it sucks and I hope you’ll feel better soon!

    • 2. Jenny  |  02/25/2011 at 11:42 pm

      Roasted veggies with marinara? Interesting, I’m gonna try this next time. And I can’t stop using Reddi-wip! :O

    • 5. Jenny  |  02/25/2011 at 11:42 pm

  • 6. Mandi  |  02/25/2011 at 9:40 pm

    Sorry to hear you weren’t feeling so well. 😦 My appetites been kind of off lately too. I’m also staying in tonight. I have loads of homework to catch up on which isn’t my ideal way to start off the weekend but I guess it’s necessary.

  • 7. Tara  |  02/25/2011 at 10:31 pm

    I have a can of reddiwhip in the fridge outside that I totally forgot about! Thanks for the reminder πŸ™‚

    congrats on the 10 pushups! that’s a lot compared to most people. You’re just going to keep getting stronger!!!
    Hope you feel better soon!

    • 8. Jenny  |  02/25/2011 at 11:43 pm

      Thank you! So far I’m feeling pretty good

  • 9. Olivia  |  02/25/2011 at 10:33 pm

    I know I already commented here, but I forgot to say this; congrats on your pushup achievements!! My pushups are un-improving! I can hardly do 18 now! I used to be able to do almost 30, no problem! AHHh need to get to the gym!:)

  • 10. Carlee  |  02/25/2011 at 10:43 pm

    Come again another day my pockets stuck on overload my rain never evaporates… okay! haha

    Everything looks insanely good! How do the oats with cereal hold up?? I find some cereal are good in oats while other get weird…ya know? Like captain crunch does NOT work in oatmeal it just gets this super weird texture. However chex works super good!

    I’m totally staying in tonight!

    Hope your IBS starts to go AWAY! πŸ™‚

    • 11. Jenny  |  02/25/2011 at 11:45 pm

      I love all cereal in oats! Lol Do you leave them overnight? Cause I add it in the morning so it doesn’t get soggy. I usually use Kashi as a topping or if not then I’ll use cookies, graham crackers, chocolate chips, or nuts. Yum πŸ˜€

  • 12. Carlee  |  02/25/2011 at 10:47 pm

    that’s what all my haters say* πŸ˜‰

  • 13. Gina  |  02/25/2011 at 10:52 pm

    Sorry to hear about your IBS 😦
    I know the feeling of a distended belly, bloat and pain. Before I went gluten-free, I used to get such a distended belly I would look like I was preggo!
    I’m staying in tonight too! A nice break after a long week πŸ™‚

    • 14. Jenny  |  02/25/2011 at 11:46 pm

      How did you figure out gluten was the problem? Just basic elimination diet?

      • 15. Gina  |  02/27/2011 at 11:20 am

        Yes, I just decided to pull all gluten out of my diet. I figured it was worth a shot because the pain was beginning to hinder my daily activities. And lo and behold, it’s been amazing. I feel great!

  • 16. Ellie  |  02/26/2011 at 1:53 am

    Hola Jenny! I hope that by tomorrow morning you’ll be out of bed strong and light πŸ˜€ Heyyy maybe you are allergic to gluten then…? I hope not! Whatever it is, may it be brought to the light! I was kind of feeling like that today, and I know how hard it is to ‘function’ properly haha. Hang in there!

    • 17. Jenny  |  02/26/2011 at 7:37 pm

      Girl I hope I’m not allergic to gluten! lol πŸ˜€

  • 18. movesnmunchies  |  02/26/2011 at 10:27 am

    oh gosh! im so sorry about your pain!! but for real that oat concoction MUST have made it all better πŸ˜€

  • 19. whatkateiscooking  |  02/26/2011 at 12:29 pm

    I stayed in last night, and probably will tonight too πŸ™‚ I watched the Jersey Shore too… I’m addicted!

    • 20. Jenny  |  02/26/2011 at 7:38 pm

  • 24. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin  |  02/26/2011 at 5:59 pm

    Sorry about the pain girl. My mom has IBS, so I know what it must be like. I hope today has been better for you!

    • 25. Jenny  |  02/26/2011 at 7:39 pm

      Thank you Chelsea πŸ™‚

  • 26. Michelle  |  02/26/2011 at 9:00 pm

    Ah girl, as we speak right now I’m experiencing that horrible stomach pain too. I uncharacteristically munched on a crumb cake at my sorority. Such a horrible idea!

    • 27. Jenny  |  02/26/2011 at 9:06 pm

      Last night was really bad for me, luckily today has been better but still feeling the bloat. Unfortunately this just goes away whenever it wants 😦

  • 28. Erika  |  02/26/2011 at 10:43 pm

    Hope your IBS gets better soon Jenny! That OOIAJ looks delicious. I love Cheerios! :]

  • 29. simplynutritiouskate  |  02/26/2011 at 11:45 pm

    omg that ooiaj looks amazing ahh I need some nut butters to run out asap!

  • 30. kissmybroccoli  |  02/27/2011 at 9:35 am

    Girl, you are making me want to go to the store right now and grab some whipped topping! When I was younger, I would squirt that stuff right into my mouth! Lol

    Sorry to hear about your tummy troubles. I’ve never been diagnosed with IBS, but I have similar issues with my gut! 😦

  • 31. mealsformiles  |  02/27/2011 at 3:03 pm

    that looks delicious! I’m so sorry about your IBS – have you ever tried to pinpoint certain foods that both you the most? Hope you’re feeling better today!

    I stayed in, and also caught up on a little DVR πŸ™‚

    • 32. Jenny  |  02/27/2011 at 8:11 pm

      I’ve cut out dairy for a while and I felt better but then I started having it again and it didn’t make a difference. If it’s gluten I think I’d live with pain lol It just kinda comes and goes when it wants 😦

  • 33. cleaneatingchelsey  |  02/27/2011 at 8:57 pm

    I’m so sorry you weren’t feeling well. I suffer from a horrible digestive system too (never been diagnosed with IBS) and have just discovered that coffee is one of my culprits. I’m totally bummed and doing a post on it soon. I hope you feel better soon!

    • 34. Jenny  |  02/27/2011 at 11:47 pm

      I should try cutting out coffee for a few days πŸ™‚

  • 35. chrysta  |  02/27/2011 at 9:01 pm

    I hope you feel better soon!! Great job on the push ups though! Thats awesome!! The banana soft serve looks so yummy. Sounds like a great night in..I really enjoy them myself. Have an awesome weekend!

  • 36. IHeartVegetables  |  02/28/2011 at 10:37 am

    Not gonna lie, I’ve been known to keep old PB Jars, smear a little PB in them, and then eat oats out of them πŸ˜‰ They just taste better that way!! haha

  • 37. Holly at Greek Yogurt and Apple Slices  |  02/28/2011 at 3:10 pm

    Ugh, I didn’t know you suffer from IBS 😦 I have Crohn’s disease, so I can TOTALLY relate to all of the stomach issues.
    Staying away from dairy has helped me a LOT. (instead of skim milk I used almond milk, no ice cream :(, and greek yogurt is actually fine, but other yogurt really bothers me)
    I also try to eat as ‘gluten-free’ as I can. Even though it’s get a bit pricy, I buy what I can. I hope you start feeling better! Have you seen a gastro about it?

    • 38. Jenny  |  03/06/2011 at 8:07 pm

      I did and he just said IBS 😦 I have a follow up coming soon so hopefully it’ll help!
