Ok so today was almost back to normal but took today as a rest day. I worked all day and did an hour of yoga. Still taking it easy on the food.

Breakfast
1 packet of apple cinnamon oatmeal

Snack
8 oz green monster

Lunch
1/2c homemade mashed pinto beans
1/2c mashed sweet potatoes
1/2c applesauce

Snack
16 oz green monster

Supper
1c grapenuts
1 1/2c coconut milk
Let the grapenuts get soft before eating them. Eating slowly so not to overload my stomach

Woke up this morning and felt better than I did yesterday. Still taking it easy on the diet eating soft bland foods. Don't want another attack. The probiotics seem to be helping a lot but will be calling the GI today to set up an appointment.

Breakfast
1/2c dry old fashioned oats cooked in water
5 prunes cut up
cinnamon
splash of coconut milk

Snack
12 oz green monster

Lunch
2 1/2c homemade vegetable bean soup with noodles

Snack
1c cinnamon applesauce

Snack
16 oz green monster

Post workout
8 oz almond milk
2 scoop rice protein powder

Supper
6 little guilt waffles (no sugar or fat added)

Bedtime snack
8oz almond milk
2 scoops protein powder


Tbar row 3 sets 25 lbs 15 reps, 3 sets 35 lbs 12 reps, 3 set 45 lbs 12 reps
Bentover row 8 sets 80 lbs 10 reps
Upright row 6 sets 45 lbs 12 reps
Lat pulldown 3 sets 50 lbs 15 reps, 3 sets 60 lbs 15 reps, 3 sets 75 lbs 12 reps
Back extension 6 sets 12 reps
1 arm tricep extension 4 sets 20 lbs 12 reps
Tricep extension 2 sets 60 lbs 10 reps
Tricep pulldown 2 sets 40 lbs 12 reps, 3 sets 50 lbs 15 reps
Kickback 3 sets 10 lbs 12 reps

Have only had 2 mild flare ups with my stomach once at work the soup I made was a bit spicy and the waffles were a bit much but sure tasted yummy. Think I will go soak in a hot bath, drink another protein shake cause I feel like I am lacking and crawl in bed

Amanda I will totally keep you posted! It is just hard slowing down because last year I was go go go go. Like I said though as long as I eat soft bland foods I do pretty darn good with my tummy which makes me feel strong so I can hit the gym and do what my body will let me. Gaia trust me girl I am listening to you and pushing myself harder than my body will let me go

I just want you to listen to your body. I do like how you go to workout and then if your body is not doing so well you don't just give up, but back off the intensity. You are listening to your body! Good! Good! Now if the GI expert can find out what is making you sick when you eat, then you can tackle that next!

Hi Nancy! How's the tummy feeling? Looks like you're doing better which is so awesome!

This workout is impressive, even though you might not be as happy with it! Two 55 minute classes and you lifted?

Are you lifting after or before cardio? Legs are a large body part to work- so to give them a good workout, focus on that and give it your all- do some cardio after if you have energy still. Not doing cardio on leg days is ok too- I used to feel like I was sinning if I didn't do cardio, but with leg days being intense it's ok. Let me know what you think!

Keep up the awesome work! xo

Oh yes those are my warm ups to my leg workouts...i know I shouldnt. They are done before my leg workout. It is hard to do my weight training before cardio cause I dont get off early enough. But doing this I found I focus on my weight training better.

All WHEAT/GLUTEN! Why do you do this to yourself? You know the outcome. And yes, all of those taste darn yummy, BUT. . . !
You may have a gluten intolerance now, but if you keep this up, you will end up with celiac disease. You need to let whatever is wrong heal up inside. Everytime you have a bout of sickness, damage is being done. And then there is the inflammation that gets out of hand, and that can even cause of more damage. There is a point of no return/repair with this.

Go and look for Cream of Brown Rice, Spelt bread (low gluten - which may or may not be tolerated), and Rice crackers instead. Many people have a wheat intolerance, as do I, and there are many options that are wheat-free now (just have to look at the labels though, as many use eggs as the protein binder for the baked good).

You have begun to learn what to eat as a vegan as you made a conscious choice to not eat animal and animal products for either a moral or health point of view. Now you need to learn what to eat that your body reacts badly to, from a health point of view, and be conscious of it - get passed the denial part . . . quickly.

(Denial as in - oh that looks good, and my tastebuds are just salivating at the thought of tasting that delicious food. oh I can just have it this just one more time. I know it will bloat me or make my tummy feel achy, but it will be worth just to taste it. And you devour it, and feel all yummy inside as it passes the tastebuds. Then in less than an hour, your tummy starts to protest and you play all stupid by not knowing why it is acting up at all. it was just 2 little crackers. just 2 little garlic toasts. and just two little packets of cream of wheat. why are you doing this to me body? and you know why. then your mind tells the body that it wasn't all that bad. and that you don't have a problem. well you do, but it is just a little inconvenience. but you know it isn't. this is denial talking).

don't even get me started on this! you already know this as bad as you put . . . . . . after it.

My rant to you is over now. I know somewhere inside of you, the little angel on the one shoulder is telling all of this. I just want to be the choir for that little angel, so as to drown out the sweet seductions of the little red devil on your other shoulder that has your tastebuds for its choir.

Don't worry Lay's are gone, french bread finished off, didn't have any cream of wheat left. HOWEVER the crackers are still a full box and I refuse to waste open product. I went to many years wishing for food to eat to waste now if I can help it. Yes the lil angel on my shoulder was scolding me..... I didn't have a tummy problem today, think it was to darn cold to complain lol. Started soaking another batch of beans for tortilla soup! I plan on making my own tortillas for this too. Gaia I lived in denial for soooo long I know it very well and hate it. I know I still have a long way to go on getting my diet completely lined out.

Back/tricep
Iso Row: 3 sets 45 lbs 15 reps, 3 sets 55 lbs 12 reps, 2 sets 65 lbs 12 reps
Iso pulldown: 3 sets 35 lbs 12 reps, 3 sets 45 lbs 10 reps
Reverse flye: 3 sets 20 lbs 12 reps, 3 sets 25 lbs 12 reps

A lovely work in progress! Especially your weights! And I dread the cardio equipment also (treadmills, elliptical, stairmaster especially). I hope we have an early spring, so when I have to go all out cutting/dieting, I am hoping that the outside will be nice, and my cardio can be something on the trail near my house!

I went through my pantry and pulled out a box of whole wheat pasta noodles and wheat couscous that hadn't beenopened and put them in the Harvester's barrel at Starbucks this morning. I no longer have any wheat products except some pearled barley that I got from a bulk bin at the store.... been finding all kinds of recipes on Pinterest that are vegan and gluten free that I can't wait to try.
