Anxiety & Bloat

Day 17.  My stomach is killing me right now.


It's not because I ate all this candy.


Sadly, the Milkshake Whooper melted in the car.  But I'm happy to report that today was a full and fun day with the girls shopping in the USA and feasting at the Olive Garden.  All you can eat bread sticks and salad is a dangerous deal.   


This week I have tried super hard to eat three full and complete meals.  There's a few struggles 1) taking medication to eliminate the 'after eating bloated pain' and 2) remembering to eat. 


Lately it has been really hard for me to "blog".  

Sitting in front of the computer is an activity I used to enjoy.  I still do but not in the same way.  It's hard to come up with ideas of what to write about.  And I still hesitate in writing anything and everything that might pop into my mind as a possible post.  

This week has been okay.  

I'm fearful of gaining weight.  But that's a given.

Yesterday, I got my M1 and practiced handling the motorcycle at a slow speed in a parking lot. 

And today was a great girls day.  

My stomach feels like it's all torn up and has been stabbed.  Lesson somewhat learnt:  Next week I should take that damn medication before every meal.

That's really it for now.  
Happy weekend to all :)

Sorry 'bout the stomach troubles. I hope you straighten that out. I'm glad you're proceeding to learn how to ride a motorcycle. And we, your readers, are happy to read whatever you want to write about.

Thanks Shybiker Ally for your support. The stomach issue is really all my fault. There's a medication I should take before meals to "prepare my stomach" for food which helps with digestion & decreases bloat/pain. I continue to not always take it because... ??? Many reasons really. Next week, my goal is to take it more.

Also next week I'd like to practice more on the bike. It's great learning something new and that I've always dreamed of.

Dear Francesca I too love candy. There's something so delicious and fun about it. When I travel, I love to get candy that I don't usually see or get.

Didn't you get a Congo Grey recently? That should generate a good amount of blog material.

Just throwing it out there, but do you think one of the reasons you don't take it is so you won't be as tempted to eat? I hope you can push through that soon. Each body has a healthy weight set-point it wants to be at, and when you treat it well, it will not let you down! Try to think of food as fuel that your mind and body need to run properly, just like a motorcycle. ;)

girls on bikes are so hot!

is the pain more mental causing the physical, or is your body just not used to the food and its strictly physical? I agree with Jen, think of it as fuel and not somethign to make you heavier... you just need to make sure you're mentally okay with what you're putting in your body and I think that would help you ease up on being so anxious about it.

I read an interview with Rachel Zoe in this month's instyle and she reveals that NONE of her clients (cameron diaz, eva mendes, anne hathaway, etc.) are a size zero. makes a girl feel a little better about herself :)
