Time for another blog! Not a happy one this time, ’cause it’s about my last hospitalization. I went there for my IBD. It wasn’t long; I’m back already. But it was hard.
Not only the pain, but also the food. Food is an important factor in my health. If I eat proper and clean I have less pain and I recover in less time.
People with IBD often eat glutenfree and fatfree. So you would say they keep notice of that in the hospital.
Well, think again. I asked them for a vegan meal and that was were they made their first mistake.
Vegan? So you don’t eat meat then? It says here that you can have anything, so would you like the spaghetti with tuna or the patatoes with salmon?
I didn’t even know what to say.
Eventually I got my voice back and I said that I didn’t eat meat, fish or dairy because of my illness. (Thats not the only reason but I doubt that she’ll got it so I tought this was okay)
That she understood. I asked for some veggies, fruit and plain rice.
Within 20 minutes she was back with a small plate of rice and veggies and – Hallelujah- 6 banana’s.
Being a vegan in a hospital. It sure ain’t easy, but I managed.
I hope that next time I find someone who understand me, and the importance of clean food to a healing body.
Hey my loves!
why oh why do I use caps lock? Well because you haven’t seen me in a while. And I’m happy to announce that I’m back!
WHY have I been gone? I had a hard time dealing with life and with myself. I was more aware of my ED and I felt terrible. I didn’t feel like ‘me’ but it felt like there was nothing I could do. But I feel so much better now. I decided that I won’t let a disease rule my life. I’m not sure if this will help me, but it feels like it does. And I get a lot of support from m boyfriend and parents. I still have a disease in my colon, which is also a big part of my life. Living healthy and sport regularly should help me feel better. I always tried, but didn’t made it far because of my ED. But now, I will.
Will you continue this journey with me?
Today is gonna be a long but nice day. It’s still warm outside, I’m wearing my new trousers and I’m going to the movies tonight (with my best friend). Sounds like a good day. But like I said, it’s gonna be a long day. I still find it kind of hard toeat enough on days like this. I tend to eat less, and as a result I get cravings. I try to eat as many as I should (around 2000 kcal of fruit, 500 of dinner) but sometimes I fail to get it all in. I’m not planning on having cravings today, so I made myself food for school. I made broccoli, a tomato salad and I have fruit. I also have rice crackers in my locker. I hope that it’s enough for me. I find it ard to eat on the go, or to plan my meals. Bit time has learned that I really need to do it. I need to take time for myself, and think about why I do it. RT4 is a lifestyle that makes my feel better, feel loved and to hopefully learn to love myself. I think today will be fine, I took care of lunch/snack and I have a lot of nice things ahead. I have drama classes today, and I’m really looking forward to it. Let’s make something of today!
I told about it in my last blog, but now I finally made my deciscion.
I’m gonna start over!
And I’ll be posting foto’s of myself (my face,body etc.) tomorrow. I’ve had a busy time and I forgot how important it is to stay on the RT4 guidelines. I may have cheated a bit..
But I’ve realised that it isn’t going to bring me somewhere if I do it like that. That’s why I decided to start over. I’ve read some more, I now know more then I did the last time.
And, most important, I’m motivated to stay on track.
So my blogfriends, let’s make a fresh start!
I’m think I might start counting from 0 on again.. I’ve been of track a lot while I was on vacation, about a week ago. So it feels a bit weird to say that I’m already 26 days RT4 while I’ve been of the wagon.. So guys, what do you think? I might leave it open.
Let’s talk about yesterday&today. It was my boyfriends birthday yesterday! Yeah, happy me. We celebrated it with some of our friends and his family. He has such a sweet grandma, the one that always gives you chocolat and tells you stories about the past. I like her. Might swap her with my grandma. I don’t actually recall what I ate (I did a lot and I ate on the go) except for dinner. Which was at my boyfriends. His dad is a chef and he made this awesome Chinese veggiesoup. I ate two large bowls. It was nice to talk to everyone and I made him very happy with my gift.
But now, today! Well, today was okay, we have this runningclub/thing going on, and we have a lot of loyal members. That’s why I also feel a bit pushed to go. We have a trainer and we ran for about a hour. That’s long enough for me, haha! But it feels great afterwarts, so I’m happy we went. I made a delicious banana smoothie after my run, I added some almonds drops and that tasted really nice. I learnt for some courses, yeah, school has really started again. So has the learning. We had a BBQ for diner. I don’t eat meat, but my family does. Mum bought some really nice things for me, like sweetcorn and zuchinni’s. Together we made 2 great salads. This might be one of the last sunny days,so a BBQ was a thing to do, to end the summer.
