Life Happens

Well after a day of laying in bed, watching terrible tv, and eating nothing but this

….I am still sick. :-(  My body is taking longer than I anticipated to shake this thing. I am especially disappointed because yesterday would have been a productive gym day, and I also had Free Fun planned that I had to cancel. It involved free cheese, which makes it all the more upsetting.

Quick week 2 recap

This week’s goals:

  • Go to the gym 3 times
  • Cook all my meals on weeknights (accept Thursday because I won’t be home :-) More to come )
  • Balance my meals in a healthy way
  • Drink 3 water bottles of water a day
  • Find 1 free thing to do
  • Try yoga again

-Now that I am at least able to keep water down, I have been drinking lots of fluids.

-I wouldn’t call my last 24 hrs of “meals” balanced. Crackers and Gatorade hardly fit into many food groups.

-I am trying to stay positive and accept  the fact that life happens and sometimes things do not go as planned.

Since I have a lot of time on my hands, I did some research today on foods that can restore health and decrease nausea.  Here is what I have found!

Foods that help eliminate nausea:

  • Crackers – they absorb stomach acid. Gross but helpful.   
  • Sports drinks- they are rich in potassium and electrolytes. 
  • Apples- small amounts of fiber help clear out the system
  • Nuts- protein can regulate nausea
  • Chicken bouillon broth
  • Mint and Ginger- this is an old school remedy for nausea

Foods to avoid:

  • Greasy foods- this causes gas which is NO fun for anyone
  • Meat- fatty foods are too difficult to digest
  • High acidity foods- stomach acid mixed with more acid = bad news
  • Dairy products- Lactose apparently produces acid in the stomach

I also found a lot of strategies for preventing nausea that I would never have thought of before!

  • Don’t mix hot and cold foods 
  • Don’t brush your teeth after eating
  • Avoid sweet foods

I actually have most of these positive foods on hand, so I am hoping to piece together some meals today and have them successfully remain in my stomach. I also plan to try some yoga today. Wish me luck!
