July 24th, 2015–Test results round 1

 

A month or so ago, I took a Stool Test to figure out what all my gut issues are. Saw my doctor today about the results. Other than having some low good gut bacteria, nothing was of noteworthiness.

No sign of inflammatory bowels or yeast overgrowth.

The doctor is really leaning towards SIBO.

Mr. Wonderful jokes that I should just get a colon transplant.

Well after some sleep, I am off to research SIBO.

Food Log:
Breakfast: GGS, sausage and eggs
Lunch: Enchilada salad-lettuce, green beans, enchilada sauce, ground beef, “sour cream”, and guac

Lunch Whole30 day 24

Dinner: was a disaster! We were going to grill burgers at the park, but we didn’t bring enough charcoal and they were cooked, but undercooked to my liking, and I couldn’t eat it. Luckily, I brought carrots and apple slices and some sunbutter.

July 3, 2015–Hangover or “Kill all the things”?

Day 3! Today is Mr. Wonderful’s birthday, and it was an uneventful day. He went camping last night so he could go sailing early, before it got too hot out. So we started our day a little later than planned.

Also, according to the Whole30 timeline, I should be feeling the “hangover” or the “kill all the things” stage. Not sure what a hangover is, since I have never consumed alcohol before. But this morning, oi! Even after breakfast I was hangry. Feeling good now, and hopefully it can carry over to tomorrow.

Food Log:

Breakfast: Smokey Sweet Potato Hash Browns (I could eat these every day for the rest of my life!!) Bacon, eggs (I hate running eggs, and will only eat scrambled or hard boiled), and green beans.

Dinner: Mr. Wonderful requested “real” mashed potatoes. I don’t really like potatoes so we don’t normally have them. He also wanted to smoke something. but it has been so hot, we decided to just grill some chicken instead.

Tomorrow is a busy day, starting with a church breakfast. So tonight, I made a slow cooker breakfast casserole to cook while we sleep. Extra work, just to stay on track. But it serves 6 so now I have breakfast for the next 6 days, win win!!

Staying under my calorie goal, and not feeling light headed and fatigued like I did last month. Not sure if it is the supplements recommended from my doctor, or whole30.
