What started off as a fun Labor Day weekend, ended with an inconvenient and severe gastritis attack that is still lingering in my gut as we speak.
oh stomach..you’re so temperamental
I’ve always had a sensitive stomach, and despite the issues I’ve experienced with it in the past, I’ve never been one to deprive myself a taste of anything.
With that said, after having only a small scoop of chicken, broccoli and ziti, and a taste of baked eggplant parm at my parents bbq, I was left surrendering to cramps, bloating, muscle spasms and headaches galore.
I mean, I should have known better.
Heavy dishes saturated in oil, butter, and marinara sauce hurt my stomach on their own, let alone all together on one plate as one big happy family.
So of course, my stomach decided to rebel, and sent my hunched over and defeated self to the couch for the rest of the weekend. There I lay,Sunday-Monday,on my right side watching movies, reality TV, and eating dry toast.
Not how I planned to finish off the summer.
Lesson of the day: Always go with your gut. Learn your body, what it can and can’t tolerate, and only eat what makes you feel your best.
For now, I will be taking it easy until my stomach feels better, sticking to light walks, stretching, bland foods and water water water.
oats,berries,banana and 1 scoop vanilla Sunwarrior with water.
This means that my Pumpkin coffee will have to wait.
Absence makes the heart grow founder. <3
What foods upset your stomach? I don’t do well with acidity, oils, and carbonated beverages..just to name a few!
