You have what???….My journey with UC

“Iffy”

Oooo when that “iffy” feeling creeps in…Thank God for workout videos, Target’s selection of yoga mats & hand weights!

Something different I am trying is that I vowed to go super slow in regaining my fitness health once I found a prescription cocktail therapy that I responded to. I tried too many times to exercise hard only to have my symptoms get worse. If only I was “more fit” it would go away. Um no.. farthest from the truth. Its easy to get wrapped up and compare yourself to those who do not have an autoimmune disease like IBD.

New Year – New Strong

Something is different this year. Even the geranium is blossoming in January!

I am learning a new strong. Learning to recognize what and how healthy feels good again. Its not always that easy but I am excited!! I feel for nano seconds of the day I forget I have IBD… crazy! : )

Pants That Fit…This is New

Small issue but its real. It feels weird! I am actually uncomfortable, but my pants fit like they ‘re supposed to I think. A lot of us with IBD tend to be under weight. I’ve been used to my pants, shorts or skirts always to be on the loose side & I admit I secretly liked it. I wanted to share because I can’t be the only one with this new beginning of my road to remission 🙂

Keeping in check…

…How good days never should be taken for granted. A quick hike in the woods on this crisp Dec morning. Though my bladder said I should have gone before I started…lol… but whose complaining? Happy Sunday to all.

Winging It

Knowing the window of time between your first cup of joe and getting on the plane. Traveling doesn’t always allow me to be on “schedule”… especially for a 7 am flight…I accept that more times than not I have to just wing it and keep my fingers crossed all goes well.

Soup Season My Friend Has Arrived

Its official! Soup Season has arrived : )

I have such a close relationship with soup. Like today, on a chilly fall Sunday, just making homemade soup in the kitchen I find comfort. Even from a can, soup has always been my best friend in the lowest of IBD days. There is something so healing about a bowl a soup. Today Asiago cheese : )

Humira hang on tight!

Every new med is like a new train ride, never sure where it will take me but I’m willing to go for the ride. The Humira train took 3 months to kick in with the help of prednisone. I won’t call a victory unless I can make it a full year. Im still leery of this medication but this train ride so far has been a good one. Its not to say there haven’t been bumps but Im gonna hang on tight! : )

Thats Not What I Thought I ordered…

You think you are ordering a rather plain dish and you get the fancy one. It looks amazing, it will taste good but it will not come out good. The fact is my digestive system hates meals that are mixed with creative sauces and unusual combinations. Troubles of work travel… #fancyhalibut

When the car in front of you drives too slow…

…and all you want to do is push them out of the way to race home & take care of business! 

4 months on Humira, 2 months with really good results. I’m trying to bring back a normal social life but I think my guts are saying not so fast!  

Traveling lots this month for work, lets see how this goes.
