I took a risk today and regretted it. Since I was short on time for lunch, I went to the convenient shop in my building and bought a pre-made Italian cold-cut. So not freshly made, full of preservatives, and definitely not gluten-free. Within 20 minutes of consuming the sandwich, I became severely bloated and my stomach was hard. I was so uncomfortable and miserable at my desk. I contemplated asking my boss if I could leave early, especially when I started to feel nausea, but I was resilient. To ease the discomfort I walked around the office and chugged water until I had to “go”. And once my body was ready, I went to the restroom and felt sooo much better. Thank god for #poopourri 🙂
Honestly, I haven’t been eating the healthiest lately, barely cooking due to fatigue and I chose to stop eating gluten-free bread. It’s such a waste of money for those tasteless little pieces of bread. So I’ve invested in artisan bread which thankfully my body has accepted. I’ve also discovered I can eat cheddar cheese and been consuming it like it’s water. The predinsone makes me want to eat everything in sight so I’ve been bingeing on bread and cheese because it fills me up. My guilty snack lately has been nachos . . I know the worst!! but it’s not what you think. It’s corn tortilla chips, pico de gallo, and medium cheddar cheese. It doesn’t bother my stomach . . so I love it, but I can imagine my blood pressure from all the salt.
I’ll see my GI in a month, should be interesting.
