Hello! Is the anticipation of hearing about my boundary waters trip really driving you crazy? Well, you’re going to have to wait, because I didn’t get it around to putting it together yesterday. Tee hee. Sorry. I’m sure you’re all going to be okay.
How about a recap of yesterday’s low-fiber intake?
Starting with breakfast: Cream of Wheat with maple syrup, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Holy cow this was great. It sat very well in my tummy too, which is very important being I was at work and no one likes to be uncomfortable at work.
I snacked on a banana mid-morning. For lunch I ate the innards (didn’t realize that was actually a word until right now) of a sweet potato with a scoop of natural peanut butter. Ah are you kidding me? Why I have I waited so long to make this beautiful concoction. Love. Meal numero dos = success.
I also ate some honeydew melon, and a handful of pretzels.
After work I headed to mom and dad’s. I decided to hop on the elliptical for a half hour lag to stretch my legs out. I got real sweaty hence the shiny face in this photo below. Abbie doesn’t seem to mind. Mom and I took her for a quick walk around the neighborhood before we hunkered down to work on dinner.
fettuccine noodles and marinara sauce with mushrooms, spinach, and italian spices. On top of ol’ fettuccine were two meatballs. On the side, green beans (canned because they are easier for the body to digest). Meal three was also a success and I got to eat it with mom, dad, and Kevin which made it that much better.
For dessert I munched on dark chocolate and mint chocolate chips and a few mini marshmallows. What is with me lately and having to eat dessert every night? Mmm, I love my sweets.
After dinner I came home to the boys and threw the ball to Moose for a while before a storm rolled in. Check out these peonies blooming in our backyard. Beautiful! I wish they lasted longer than they did.
The day’s eats in combination with starting my medications, made for a pretty good day on the colitis front. I did not feel bloated today which is such a glorious thing. I will fight this fast, I know it.
I am out. I have company coming for dinner tonight and have plans to make something nummy, and I will be keeping it low-fiber. I will be sure to fill ya in later.
