04 May 2015

I went to see the gastro today and he told me to try the low fodmap diet. He has IBS and said it has helped him and now he's suggesting it to patients like me who have constant stomach issues. You start by eating only foods on the "good" list and avoid the "bad" foods for about 6 weeks, then start reintroducing foods and see if you have a reaction, if you don't then those foods are okay. I'm doing some research and this isn't something I could get my family to do, I'd probably have to make some adjustments for myself. I'm thinking about it and I'll try to decide if I'm going to try this or not. It's interesting and a lot of the research I've done so far looks like this has helped people who have similar issues, so maybe it's worth a shot. I'll try to make my decision before I go grocery shopping on Saturday morning.

Well, other than my trip to the doc today I haven't done much. We have a boy scout picnic this evening and baseball Tuesday and Thursday, then boy scouts again on Friday, so it will be a busy week, but I'm going to try to at least get some walking in or something. I went for a walk/run on Saturday and was pretty active, but Sunday I didn't do much. I need to get more active, but my darn sinuses keep acting up and make it hard to get motivated.

I better get going so I can go for a walk or something. Have a great Monday!!

TGIF! It's going to be a gloomy day here, but I'm still glad it's Friday. This weekend I'm hoping to get my garden cleaned up, but other than that I have no plans. Hopefully I can stick to eating healthy and get some exercise in though.

I didn't get a workout done last night. When I got home I had a terrible headache and after we ate and I did some dishes I just wanted to go to bed. Of course I didn't, I had to watch the depressing 2 hour Grey's Anatomy. Today I'm going to try to do my strength workout that I was going to do last night.

My snacking has been getting bad again. I'm not even hungry I just want, I think part of that is TOM, but I need to find my will power. Tonight after work I'm picking up a fruit and veggie basket, so we'll see what treasures are in there and I'll be able to use some them this weekend or maybe tonight for snacks. I always get excited for my basket. :)

I hope everyone has a great Friday and a great weekend!!

I went for a walk during my son's baseball practice for almost an hour last night and it felt good. I ended up a little over 3 miles. My feet hurt when I was done, which means I need to get used to doing things again like walking and running. I think my socks were bunching in the heel that didn't help either. Next week starts games though, so I won't be able to walk during the games. Most of my sons games will be at 8 pm though so I should be able to get a quick workout in before we have to go. I don't care if I'm sweaty and gross if I'm going to sit at the ball field anyway. :)

Tonight I'm going to try to get my hubby to cook dinner so I can either go for a run or do another type of workout. I think I might give my legs a break today though and try to do something more for strength. My bat wings need toned. My arms have always been one of those areas that I hate. When I see a picture of myself in the summer, with my arms exposed they just don't look proportionate to my body. The only way to fix it is to eat right and exercise, so I'd better get on it, summer is coming fast.

I wavered a little in my eating last night but didn't do terrible, except dinner wasn't healthy. I did resist the cookies someone brought into the office yesterday and I didn't eat any chocolate at work, so that was a win. Hopefully my will power will hold today and I'll stay strong.

Have a great Thursday!!

29 April 2015

I got tested for my vitamin D yesterday and my level was great! So, I still need to keep taking the supplement to keep the level up, but after I'm done with the high dose I'll go a little lower and see how that goes. I go to my gastro doc on Monday for my annual check up and we'll see how that goes. I've been having a lot of pain again in my side, so we'll see what he says and see if he thinks my doc is right about the endometriosis. Either way there's not much they can do about the pain, so I just have to tough it out.

I went for a walk/run yesterday and the pain in my side and joints kept me from pushing myself too hard, but hopefully with some time that will get better. I still have some lingering sinus issues too so I'm sure that didn't help either. It was a beautiful day though, so I'm glad I got out. Then my mom and dad came over because my dad wanted to see my brother's dog (we're watching him while my brother is honeymooning). So, we were outside most of the evening. Tonight my son has baseball practice and it's supposed to be nice again, so if they don't need me for anything I think I'm going to go for a walk while they are practicing. No running today because my joints and side are sore, but a walk will be good.

Yesterday was a bad eating day. I ended up eating a couple of small pieces of chocolate at work, then one of the ladies brought in a strawberry dessert and I had a couple of tablespoons of that, and pizza for dinner. I didn't snack much in the evening, but with all of the snacking and unhealthy dinner I went over my calories. Today will hopefully be better. I think I'm going to do a salad for lunch, I brought a frozen dinner, but a salad sounds good and less carby. Hopefully no one brings me any dessert today!! :)

Have a great hump day!!

28 April 2015

It already feels like it's going to be a long day. I don't know why but time is already dragging. Maybe it's because it's going to be a nice day and I would rather be doing things outside. Hopefully I'll be able to get a run in after work.

I had to get my blood drawn this morning to check my vitamin D level. It's always low, but I've been on a supplement for about a month now so we'll see how it is. I know low vitamin D can cause achy joints, among other things, but it doesn't ever seem like taking the supplement helps me with that. Today all the joints from my hips to my toes hurt, but I'm still going to try for a run, and if I just can't, I'll walk.

I did well with my eating yesterday, so I'm hoping I can do it again today. I have been eating too many carbs so I need to get that figured out, but for now I'm concentrating on cleaning up my foods, then I'll work on balancing out my carbs, protein, and fat. As it gets warmer I'll crave things like salads and that will help me too.

I hope everyone has a great day!!
