You have what???….My journey with UC

Comfortably Happy

I used think eggs bothered me… too much sulfur

I used to think maybe avocados bothered me too.. too rich in fiber

I used to think white bread was secretly rotting my insides.

This long journey has taught me not to fear trying anything that might make this disease more comfortable.

And I’m comfortably happy eating all these foods again & more. I have to say Humira has been a game changer.

Old Fashion

Call me old fashion… lol but I find a whiskey old fashion a refreshing alternative when traveling for work.

Running into a road block.. πŸ‘ŸπŸ‘Ÿ

At this point I am 100% convinced that stepping up my running game is a flare trigger. It’s really hard for me to not intensify my workouts when it becomes easy or not challenging. I still believe In Humira, hopefully this is a quick bump in the road. This journey is definitely not a straight road!

β€œIffy”

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.

πŸ’œ 10 mins is better than zero πŸ’œ

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 πŸ™‚

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 β€œschedule”… 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 : )

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.
