day 1357 – florida bound

the day did not go as planned, especially not before i take off for vacation. my work day was cut short because i threw up everything i had eaten the night before. all i could do was go home and hope that i get better after sleep. i ate a bowl of plain congee for dinner before checking into yvr for our red eye flight to florida. it all sounds like a rocky start but everything about our florida adventures must go on as scheduled

resolution series: [twentyfour] bad habits

it’s one of those unexplained phenomena why most girls always take pictures of their food before devouring them. i guess for me i like to document things and have variety of pictures available for blogging. i don’t know how to stop having food cravings at the most random times. one thing on my to do list is to limit the amount of eating out and consumption of unnecessary crap because it is hard to control my digestive system. and speaking of digestive system, there’s been some ongoing issues with mine that i have yet to find reason or solution to, all i know is it is very sensitive and gets upset for no good reason. also wish that i could get rid of that peculiar food craving and stop eating junk at the most inopportune times. i have this terrible habit like the sudden urge to have chocolate, ice cream, cookies, chips and all sorts of unhealthy snacks you can possibly think of. fortunately i am not a big fan of desserts, especially the white desserts and pastries like cupcakes, brownies, mousse cakes etc, but i do like my fair share of asian snacks. with all that said, my top priority is cleaning up my eating, control my cravings and intake to ensure that i do not mess up my already messed up digestive system. maybe once that gets under control, then i can pinpoint what is going on with my stomach

there’s a saying “you are what you eat” and i couldn’t agree more. understanding the value of eating well goes a long way to staying healthy. i have always been told you must eat regularly and not skip meals so not to ruin your body clock. too late it’s already ruined and that’s exactly why i have chronic stomach issues. a lot of the times it can’t be helped because when i get busy cramming for deadlines, i lose track of time and forget to eat my meals. this is one of the things i have put emphasis on in trying to correct and make better. i can’t deny i am a picky eater and there are many things i choose not to eat simply because i don’t like it. but there’s also i lot of things i choose not to eat because my digestive system just doesn’t want to accept it. it has taken me a long time to realize my body actually doesn’t like starch all that much and that my digestive system is very sensitive to oily foods. simply reducing starch has made a positive impact to my well being, and the bonus is my stomach has thrown less tantrums. i still have a lot of inexplainable cravings at the most random times but i am trying hard to reduce and control that department. not saying i cannot have them, but just need to keep a close tab on it and only use it sparringly. staying hydrated still troubles me since i can never consume enough water to maintain what people call hydrated, and no one will believe me when i say my body operates just fine with less water. my conclusion is: eat like shit, feel like shit

day 101 – probiotics

image

an upset stomach for the past three days hasn’t been pleasant, it’s time to take some probiotics to fix my system. an average of one meal a day can’t be healthy and only makes me weaker. need to find the reason for loss in my appetite but i guess not eating saves a lot of time and money

day 80 – lamb feast

image

one of the several lamb and oily meat dishes of the night. i have never heard of this before today, but this is indeed pizza with lamb toppings. it tasted good on the first bite, but too much meat and too salty to my liking. i am certain my sensitive digestive system will let me know about it later on
