Recipes, SCD, follow my journey!
It’s been a long time since my last post. I’ve been pretty busy with training and getting ready for the half marathon as well as fundraising for it! It’s been fun times.
HOWEVER. I’ve been dealing with some horrible days this week. Firstly, I got a shin splint that really hurt but thankfully, our CCFA team trainer gave some great tips on how to roll them out with a foam roller (and I found some tips online about how to use a golf/tennis ball).
Secondly, and what this post will be mostly focusing on, I got my period. TMI. It’s been about two months long, and just two months after my last flare up. I figured, there must be a pattern? I still haven’t seen a GYN about this, and I am in need for a good, new Gastro so if anyone knows anyone in NYC.. let me know!
So what should you eat at this time? Well.. I barely have an appetite because I just want to vomit mostly. But if you are pretty sure you’re not flaring, the important thing is to keep hydrated and make sure you are eating pretty easy to digest stuff. Your colon will thank you later!
I like to stick with homemade chicken soup, boiled eggs (if they don’t make you feel more bloated), and steamed carrots. I avoid the SCD yogurt because of my previous experience with lactose (I’m asian! we’re all intolerant! haha) but you might do well with it. Eat it if you can!
