For the last couple weeks, my stomach has been really upset. I’ve been experiencing upper abdominal discomfort and nausea. I know what everyone is thinking, and NO I am not pregnant! I am 100% positive of this.
I’m not a Doctor (yet), but after some online searching, I’ve come to the conclusion that I have Gastritis which is an inflammation of the stomach lining. Gastritis can be caused by a number of things including stress! I don’t advocate self-diagnosis, but I also don’t think my discomfort is serious enough to warrant a trip to the doctor. Anyways, since my tummy has been all yucky feeling, I have completely lost my appetite for vegetables. The thought of eating a vegetable is completely nauseating. Also, I cannot stomach yogurt (which is so sad because I normally eat it on a daily basis!) Needless to say, my grain consumption has skyrocketed in the past couple weeks.
So here’s a glimpse into what I ate this week with my upset stomach:
Monday’s Dinner: Pizza with whole wheat flatbread/pita crust. This is the first time I’ve used a pita type flat bread for the crust, and it was AMAZING! I love a crispy crust, and this was perfect. Also, turkey pepperoni is delish. There was also cookies and cream ice cream consumed for dessert. Ice cream actually makes my stomach feel a little better.
Today’s Breakfast: Whole wheat toast (a little burnt…oops) with butter and a bowl of oatmeal with a little sugar.
Today’s dinner: A cranberry bagel with cream cheese, cottage cheese, and grapes.
And after dinner, I made a quick trip to CVS for these. The Nauzene seems to work pretty well actually.
And in attempt to spread the holiday cheer (or out of pure laziness) I graced the people of Oberlin with my lovely candy cane pajama pants…Oh to be a college student…
