Oh man, the past few days have been pretty brutal on the eating front. It all started Wednesday night when I made a tofu scramble for Whit and I for dinner.
I followed much of the recipe that Evan posted the other night, except added in a few extra spices and vegetables like leeks and butternut squash. I added in a few scrambled eggs per Whit’s request and served it up with some TJ’s brown rice. I thought it was a great meal!
But by mid day the next day, my insides were fighting back and wow, it’s been a while since I’ve felt that miserable! I do not have a specific diagnosis yet for my stomach/digestive ailments but with my Dad having Crohn’s Disease and my Mom having Colitis, I figure I’m somewhere in the middle…So after an informative call with my Dad about all the foods I should avoid while this is happening, I was left with very few options.
Lets just say it’s been a very smoothie, peanut butter and bread/cereal heavy few days…but I’m slowly getting better so heck, who cares. I just want to feel normal again! On top of taking it easy on the food front and by walking only for work (no boot camps or workouts), I’ve been chilling out on the couch and trying to keep from going crazy (I was supposed to visit my family and look for a rare bird, but that go nixed; sad times). It’s not a very easy task when you get your Google reader all the way down to ZERO. That never happens, lol.
I did venture out of the house today and purchase a new book, The Lady of the Rivers by Phillipa Gregory, which I’m excited to dig into. Oh, and dreaming about how I’m going to use up all the greens in my box without getting sick…roughage is one thing to avoid when your having a flare up like I am.
Oh, and since I’ve got some time on my hand, I’m taking the time to do some active release exercises on my sciatic nerve/piriformis muscle and ice ice ice! Thank goodness for ace bandages to hold the ice pack in place! It always falls off if I don’t use it!
Have a great Sunday! I’ll be…still chill’n out on the couch but then getting to see Whit after he comes back from surfing! Yay! What are you plans for tomorrow?!
