I Love Veggies, I Do But……

veggies

Oh my this is so a problem.  I love vegetables.  I can eat them cooked any way including raw for most of them.  So what is the BUT, well I have IBS  and some of them just don’t agree with me.  They want to make be bloated and all gassy.  Do you know that discomfort well it’s there and it’s a good thing I work out at home because the release during the workouts haha just glad I’m at home.

Now the biggest help in this is my superfood drink.  It is not by anyways a cure for IBS or a prescription for IBS.  JUST know for ME, my superfood is load with so many vegetables, vitamins, fiber, digestive enzymes, pre and post biotic, adaptogen herbs and botanicals, shucks the list goes on and on.  Most of all it decreases my IBS discomfort and  my nutrition isn’t compromised with the smaller amounts of veggie consumption.

Pushing Play Today was and Beginning to Be Challenging

I  am truly a at home fitness person for so many reasons.  If you’ve read previous post you’d know my reasons.  I don’t swipe out any one who goes to the gym, this at one time was a favorite of. Mine and honestly there are days I miss the gym and then I remember my why.

I stream my workouts and YES I love BOD.  I also have a calendar to follow with the greater than 700 workouts but that number has increased (probably need to check my own accuracy).  I have to push play and with the COVID19 right now it’s challenging me to push play.  I had to evaluate and realize I was following all the. News about it and I as truthfully as the news is, it can also be just as depressing.  I had to challenge my NOW new challenger.

How, well I’m up on the news and I must be as a healthcare worker and an essential person as I am now known, but not to overwhelm myself.  I must continue to use all the precautions and social distancing and as told in childhood – “JUST FOLLOW THE RULES”. This is one of times not to deviate from the rules and express a different opinion (which would be irrational and unsafe)

I know I’m pushing harder in all my workouts once I begin, so that few minutes of meditation after listening to a podcast or reading PD (personal development)  has helped me SO MUCH. Also my prayers.  I include the entire country / world in my daily Rosary prayers .

Today I’m just sharing a challenge and how I’m pushing through.  Please share your challenge and means of pushing through.  To this challenge and overcoming it in a POSITIVE Outcome.

It Was Just One Day

It was just one day and that day was Monday – Memorial Day, I decided to skip my workout, but I did my steps in moving about but again I skipped my workout.  I did not feel guilty but my body is so programmed I noticed a change in energy.

Tuesday’s workout was good, no great but I had to push myself since it was so easy to skip Monday’s workout.  Now there are times when my schedule change and life throws us curves that we have to make adjustments.  However being committed and focusing on  goals, for me its “my fitness journey”. Just a share if you’re not committed you can make an excuse everyday that will deter your goals.

What the heck am I saying, well it’s easy stay committed to your goals, even if you get off course for one day and maybe two  but don’t make it an end.

To COMMITMENT 

My One Week of Celery Juice Fad or…….

I see it on social media and an associate of mine was thinking of doing it but was hesitant. Of course curiosity was there and had been lingering for a few months now so I decided to give it a try.

First I want to say these are my results after a week and a week is not adequate time to form a conclusion as I’ve noted others have raved on different results and if I continue maybe I will see greater results.
Okay to begin with I have a history or well a diagnosis by GI (gastroenterologist) MD as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). My first day and my first few swallows I had several moments of belching, I know sounds gross. I also noticed specific foods only small quantities as they were high risk to cause a flare on the FODMAP were easily digestive, which means less bloating.

I am uncertain if it was the celery juice or my favorite “Shakeology” was kicking in strong but my off cravings decreased even more. My energy was also slightly elevated more than usual. Will I stop the celery juicing, ah no I am really curious to see if there are more benefits.

This is not at anyway saying, “Hey y’all, this is the treatment for IBS, energy or curved cravings”. This is JUST MY current experiences and evaluation after one week. Everyone is different and responses to specifics are different.

Well, now I am adding celery juice to my journey for now.
