legcramps - Wednesday Aug 29, 2018

Weight: 0.0


I had the day off work; I woke up a bit later than usual and then helped a friend with grocery shopping for our camping trip on the weekend. Packed up the car, drove to the gym and coached a session, then took off for a girls' weekend! 


Good day, went for lots of walks around the campgrounds and to the playground and beach. Played lots of games with the girls; lost them all LOL. Got sick in the evening from all of the food I shouldn't have been eating :(


Another good day, more walks and games and watched a movie. Sick again in the evening for a couple of hours (hello there sausage and perogies), went to bed before everyone else but had a good sleep so it was worth missing out on a few more games.


Woke up sick. Enjoyed a coffee and a breakfast of potatoes, corn salad, and french toast before packing up the car and heading home. Two hour drive. Was so hungry when I got home, but by the time I unpacked everything and started the laundry, all I had energy to make was rice. So filled up on that and called it a night. Decided to start tracking my protein intake and drink more water. Monday - 53 grams of protein.


Drank three 24 oz bottles of water, perfect. Tuesday - 94 grams of protein. Not feeling sick today - so nice! Went to see the doctor for results of the lab work I did last week - everything is negative, no infections, no celiac, white blood cell count is all good. Had an appointment with a specialist who will schedule a colonoscopy sometime in October. Read over the process of the colonoscopy; confided to specialist the great anxiety I felt over the need for sedation; was assured (with a giggle) that I would receive sedation during the procedure and had nothing to worry about in that regard, would be well taken care of. Drove to BFs town; coached a session; worked out LEGS finishing with BOX JUMPS x 60.


On target for water and protein today - protein target is actually 150 grams so I haven't hit it once yet this week, but maybe today. Feeling good; more energy today for sure. A little acid reflux and heartburn this morning, but otherwise my stomach feels fine (knock on wood). Today I have some errands to run; must also concentrate on what I need to pack for an upcoming trip - will tell you more about this tomorrow!

Horn_of_plenty on 08/29/2018:
I am glad you feel better after the weekend. And also glad to hear that you did enjoy a lot of the experience...aside from Monday which sounds unpleasant!

it's good you follow up on the medical tests. you, and others at work, are good reminders to me to go have a physical.

Donkey on 08/30/2018:
Can't wait to hear about your trip!

Shall I share my recommendations of what never to do after a colonoscopy?

legcramps on 08/30/2018:
Yes please!

horn_of_plenty on 08/30/2018:
oh, i want to add...make sure to clean your butt after...my dad stained his pants through bc they added something similar to vaseline i think on him...and it ruined the seat cushion he sat on in my mom's kitchen!!!!!!!!

I took the morning off of work. Between these stomach issues and feeling like i'm collecting a head cold, I just needed some extra 'don't have to think' time. I went to my doctor's appointment this morning; they are sending me for a work up in the Lab, looks like the whole gambit, plus a screening for celiac. And, being referred to a specialist for a scope (colonoscopy I think they said; all I remember clarifying was the need for a sedative during the process LOL).

After that, if they don't find anything, they will add me to the wait list to test for allergies. Apparently there is only one specialist in this area, so the wait list is long. 

Had coffee with almond milk (it is the 30-calorie, non-sweetened kind), and protein waffles with LF yogurt and peanut butter for breakfast. My guts hurt, but only one emergency bathroom run so far today. Definitely feeling bloated and crampy and my tummy is spilling over the top of my pants, which is a clear sign that - sometime soon - there will have to be another bathroom run.

I don't know if there is a plus side to today, other than that i've taken the first step to a possible diagnosis. Oh, and I managed to fold a load of laundry while I was off this morning; only one load left to fold now. Once person can sure make a lot of dirty laundry.

Horn_of_plenty on 08/23/2018:
I am sooo soooo sorry you have been so troubled lately by these stomach issues :(

darn right that one person packs quite the loads of laundry huh! tell me about it!

do you make your own protein waffles or is it a mix? please, do tell! i am intrigued!

it seems you needed the time off work...but i hope you feel better and can go back to it normally soon.

i think it's smart all the tests they are doing..i hope it will start to make some sense based on findings, if any. i wish the best for you..!

BearCountryGG on 08/23/2018:
I have a person at my house that likes to tromp through the mud.....LOL.......Hope today was better for you.

Donkey on 08/25/2018:
I'm very glad you got in to see the doctor and that tests have been ordered. I am praying you get some definitive answers soon. (((hugs)))

Donkey on 08/25/2018:
LOL on the laundry - yep, my daughter is living proof!

I feel pretty good today, knock on wood.

After work yesterday, I drove 45 minutes to BF's, coached two 1-hour training sessions, then worked out back and chest with BF for another hour after that. Got back to BF's around 9pm, ate two eggs with a hamburger patty and drank some water, then begged BF to take showers and go to bed early. He agreed. What a fantastic sleep! It was so nice to get to spend some time with BF, even though he is a bit sad because his daughter has gone back to her Mom's for the school season, and he probably won't see her again until October.

This morning I was up bright and early and drove 45 minutes back home, and am now at work for the day.

I made a doctor's appointment to talk about my tummy issues; i'm hoping to walk away with a referral for food allergy testing, and maybe bloodwork to rule out any infection. Anyways, a doctor's appointment is the first step so I might as well get on with it.

Nothing on the plan for today, so I might hole up in front of the tv for the night. I should be studying. I'll start next week ;)

BearCountryGG on 08/22/2018:
Happy for you that you are feeling better...

horn_of_plenty on 08/22/2018:
maybe it's the almond milk that isn't good? it's pretty "processed" like def not an almond...i must say i love it too. the low cal versions rock though!

I am sure BF enjoyed you being there, especially comforting him as he is missing his daughter...

Glad you are being proactive about your stomach stuff....

also glad it hasn't been bothering you as much as of late...

i do know that prebiotics can really hurt you sometimes, that probiotics seem better to some...there's a difference...but i'm not a dr or scientist so i'll just leave it at that as i'd have to do more research too on this before giving real advice.

I think it was the cheerios and almond milk that triggered me so horribly yesterday afternoon. Man, the pain can be so debilitating sometimes, but I managed to make it through the work day. I even managed to get a few things done once I was back at home too, so that was nice. But mostly, I stayed as chill as possible. My coworker suggested I try to take an antacid as soon as I start feeling crappy, so i'm going to try that today. She said sometimes acid reflux will upset the stomach.

Supper was sausage and macaroni, with tomatoes and green pepper.

Tonight i'm supposed to be headed to BF's town to coach, and have supper with him. I haven't seen him since Tuesday last week, so I really want to be able to make it there to see him tonight. He gets to see the crappy side of having a girlfriend with tummy problems.

I did some IBS research, and it sounds really similar to what I am dealing with, but the only treatment I can see is a change in diet? Taking pre and probiotics and extra fiber. Well I guess it's still worth a try. I'm already taking a prebiotic with my yogurt, so I can hit the bananas again for a probiotic, and maybe find some flaxseed to throw on my food, or brown rice and see what happens.

BearCountryGG on 08/21/2018:
From my experience...it can be mighty unpredictable...unfortunately. I know what foods have triggered it....yet sometimes I have no idea why. I also think that too many liquids just make it worse. I wish I could say that I have it figured out...I haven't.....

legcramps on 08/21/2018:
Well, I sure appreciate knowing someone else with the same issues, so thank you for trying to help me through this... I guess I have to take a wait and see approach, and just keep trying different things. Do you know what kind of tests they might do to diagnose IBS?

happy-1 on 08/21/2018:
It also might be all the insecticides they spray wheat with to make it bloom before they harvest it. You might be fine with gluten but not all the other stuff in your cheerios and macaroni

legcramps on 08/21/2018:
Yeah, that could be. How will I ever be able to think about all of these things before I have a meal?

BearCountryGG on 08/21/2018:
I had a sigmoid test many years ago...I also have diverticular disease that was found during another surgery for something different.......I guess today they do a colonoscopy...they say the worst part is drinking the stuff the night before...I was there for both of my parents having that.....and they did fine...you are sedated. I kind of look at IBS as similar to fibromyalgia...in that fibromyalgia is very sensitive nerves that react easily to pain ( By nerves I mean actual nerves,....not mental nervousness)...I see IBS as a very sensitive colon.....easily upset by foods...and possibly inflammation caused by foods......it can be unpredictable...which of course is unnerving. I guess that is why I am so comfortable being at home.....because being away from home can be difficult......life seems to be too often dictated by what I ate...and how I feel.....I see there is a commercial now about IBS meds...I've never taken anything for it...by choice...but you are young and active....and it may be something that works for you. I will say...my youngest son and his wife also have it and hers also includes vomiting...so in that aspect...we are lucky I guess.

legcramps on 08/21/2018:
Oh wow! I feel so bad for your daughter-in-law! That would not be fun at all. Yes, i'd love to find a way to still be able to get out and enjoy all the things I am currently doing without having to worry about where the nearest bathroom is :(

Donkey on 08/22/2018:
If you end up getting scoped, I have some helpful words of advice on what NOT to do afterwards...

Maybe try an acid suppressor like Pepcid or Nexium, rather than an antacid?

My husband did not have luck with probiotics nor additional fiber, but that may work for you. My point: if it doesn't work, don't fret. :)

I didn't end up making frieg eggs for supper on Thursday, just had the rest of the rice and a peanut butter sandwich instead. Packed up the stuff I needed for the weekend, and went to bed.

Friday morning I was up early to coach at the gym, then was off to visit family for the weekend. LF yogurt, toast with peanut butter, coffee with almond milk, water. After a 4 hour drive and some Lay's potato chips, I got to visit with grandma for a bit (fish filet, pasta, apple bar), then because my cousin and I registered in a fishing tournament, went to the supper on Friday night - chicken breast, baby potatoes, tossed salad, chocolate cake for dessert. Too darn much food!

Saturday was up early again and out on the water fishing by 7 am. It was a chilly day! We caught some walleye, ended up around 25th out of 88 teams (very impressed by this result), then took hot showers and went for the supper and awards presentation. LF yogurt, granola bar, coffee with bailey's, jello shooters, Lay's potato chips, sausage and hard mozarella cheese, turkey sandwich, green pepper, granola bar, pasta with veggies, pulled pork on a bun, coleslaw, fried potatoe slices. Literally zero water today.

My stomach was off and on during the day Saturday, but impressively I did not have to make any emergency stops while we were out on the water fishing. In fact, I ended up slightly constipated. A bizarre change. Ended the night playing cards at my cousin's.

I managed to force myself to sleep in a little on Sunday morning, then we had a nice breakfast of eggs, toast and hashbrowns, and went to the lake to visit my aunt and uncle. Back to grandma's to play more cards, and I was back on the road to come home by 6 pm. Ate some bbq chips that the tournament sponsors handed out the day before, then had a bowl of cheerios with almond milk back at home. Took a bath, guzzled a litre of water (so thirsty), and off to bed.

Today and this week i'll be working on finishing up some food items I have in the house before they go bad - meals likely won't be balanced, but i'm ok with that.

LF yogurt, coffee with almond milk, oatmeal bar, water, cheerios with almond milk, raw veggies, granola bar, sausage and macaroni (with ketchup)

Oh my Lord, please help. In and out of the bathroom too many times to count.

I feel like I have a lot to do, so i'm not sure what i'll tackle tonight. Clean the bathroom, practice coaching for tomorrow's sessions, cut up two bags of apples that I picked from my cousin's apple tree. Among other things.

BearCountryGG on 08/20/2018:
IBS does involve constipation...lovely eh?

legcramps on 08/20/2018:
I am so over the whole thing! Today i'm suffering again with diarrhea. I guess it's time to get myself checked out. I don't look forward to the possible scope procedures :(

BearCountryGG on 08/20/2018:
It's a pain...and it runs your whole life.....one of my sons has it too.......last sept/October and November...I had jury duty...( scheduled for 5 cases)....I was here and journaled through that...what fun...I spent 4 days on liquids only before each case.......( luckily 4 cases were cancelled....but over that time I did spend about 20 days on liquids only........nothing like being trapped in the jury box in a court room.....and having IBS

happy-1 on 08/20/2018:
I’m so sorry you are in pain. It sounds like it wears on you terribly. I’m trying the habitshare iphone app for tracking when I fall off what I am supposed to eat and do physically and sleep/neck pain. It gives you a constant 7 day view which I like.

Donkey on 08/21/2018:
At least you know it's not the coffee setting things off...

Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend!

horn_of_plenty on 08/21/2018:
maybe you need a change of medication???? also, perhaps being under pressure outside on boat fishing your mind wasn't on bathroom...but then after waiting so long and being more relaxed, the bathroom problems start again...

your adventures sound very fun! great way to be outdoors!

After my lunch yesterday of chicken and rice, I felt awful for the afternoon. I just can't figure it out! After work I ate some cut up sausage and hard cheese, and was fine after that.

I didn't make it to the gym yesterday; by the time I finished the jello shots I didn't feel like driving to the gym and back. So I took my epsom salt bath and went to bed instead. It was difficult to wake up this morning.

Flax toast, peanut butter

Coffee, almond milk


Granola Bar

Chicken and rice (I have one more chicken breast to finish)

Lactose-free yogurt


Sausage, hard mozarella cheese (after work snack)

Rice, fried eggs (2) THIS WILL BE THE FIRST TIME I TRY EGGS since getting sick

I don't have much planned for tonight, I have an appointment later on and that's about it, so will review my coaching session for the morning and try to get to bed early tonight. I started watching Wentworth on Netflix - anyone else watch this show? It's sucking me in - I watched it on my phone in bed for awhile last night, so hopefully it doesn't keep me up too late tonight!

Maria7 on 08/16/2018:
Hope you are feeling better.

horn_of_plenty on 08/16/2018:
let me tell you, my stomach is up in arms at me! i have been overeating veggies for lunch at work and i'm so gassy and bloated...way too much as of late. i'll have to quit it soon! Because it's starting to become too much! i feel like you as of late! lol, i guess i shouldn't joke about it!

how did the eggs go? i'd love to eat fried eggs soon! as soon as i finish up what i have!

happy-1 on 08/16/2018:

Donkey on 08/17/2018:
^ I checked out Wentworth too! Looks like an Australian Orange Is the New Black, but maybe grittier because it's Australian? I love Australian productions.

I hope today is a better tummy day!

After work yesterday, I had to run and pick up some more lactose-free yogurt and a bottle of muscle mist, then I packed up and took off for BF's. It was a later night; I had a personal training session at 6, a group training session at 7, and then BF and I did a leg workout after that (I knew I wanted to get a leg workout in, hence the buying of the muscle mist - leg days are a killer). It was a good evening though, and i'm happy to have gotten in a workout after my '10+ hour workday'.

For supper, BF made sausage in the oven, and I cooked up some rice. Then I had half of a small size slushie because he went and bought me one. He means well, and I couldn't pass it up once it was in my hands.

Went straight to bed around 10:30 and surprisingly had a good sleep (I've been having trouble sleeping at BF's lately). Early mornings kill me though, and i'm definitely dragging my butt today.

Coffee with almond milk, flax toast with peanut butter, lactose-free yogurt, chicken and rice, granola bar, chicken and rice

Since I have the evening free, I am thinking about hitting the gym to practice the group session I lead on Friday morning. So, jello shots and the gym tonight, and maybe an epsom salt bath to relax these sore legs!

BearCountryGG on 08/15/2018:
I don't think grease bothers me...although I know it does bother some people....something I do want to mention is that there is dairy in a lot of foods, biscuits, mashed potatoes, hot dogs, milk chocolate, creamed soups, coffee creamers......and some protein powders.

legcramps on 08/16/2018:
I don't normally eat any of those things, and I stopped using my protein powder for now, although it is made with Whey so I don't know if it has dairy in it. I will have to check to make sure. Grease really bothers my tummy! Second to that is dairy, of course, and then probably caffeine.

Donkey on 08/16/2018:
Sounds like your tummy is feeling a little better!

Going to research Muscle Mist when I'm done here...

legcramps on 08/16/2018:
It is, thanks!

BF had a bottle of muscle mist so I tried it once and felt like it worked a lot better than Icy Cold or any of the heat rubs. It is definitely a cooling spray.

happy-1 on 08/16/2018:
Musclemist is better than aspercreme, biofreeze, tigerbalm, or peppermint oil?

Monday: lactose-free yogurt, oatmeal banana square, coffee with almond milk, chicken and rice, sausage with hard mozarella cheese and soda crackers, chicken and rice, gingerale, water

Only one bad bathroom break on Monday; sticking to chicken and rice seems to be working out ok so far, but at some point I need to start adding some kind of vegetables in! Good thing my coworker just brought me a box full of garden fresh cucumbers, tomatoes and green peppers! 

Tuesday: flax bread toasted with peanut butter, lactose-free yogurt, coffee with almond milk, subway turkey breast sandwich on 9 grain bread, peanut butter granola bar - plan for the rest of the day: chicken or sausage and rice

The subway turkey breast sandwich was a TERRIBLE idea. Don't let me add mayonnaise or fake, greasy bacon to anything :( Something like three bathroom breaks after lunch. Blergh.

Heading to BF's to coach at the gym there tonight; two sessions. Hopefully get in a workout as well. I have an evening to myself tomorrow night; hoping to make jello shooters for my cousin's b-day on the weekend.

BearCountryGG on 08/14/2018:
The things that get my IBS agitated are....chocolate, dairy ( not yogurt though), pop, coffee, turkey, peanut butter, too many liquids of any kind. I still eat these things and just plan to stay at home...but I'm not sure if this is a good thing...it is probably keeping inflammation active....now flax and chia are horrible for me

legcramps on 08/15/2018:
Ugh, that is not good news as those are a lot of my favorite foods, lol. I just really should not have made that sandwich with mayonnaise...I know better! How come we still make bad decisions when we know better?!

Horn_of_plenty on 08/15/2018:
yes, i was also thinking to coffee can do it to you....and any overly fatty stuff....yeah. i hope you feel better! I was thinking also the cheese.

I'm glad you are doing better. Subway sandwiches aren't that great for you...a lot of preservatives...who knows, maybe you are allergic to a preservative?

legcramps on 08/15/2018:
Yeah, that's why I thought i'd give the FODMAP diet a try, but I don't seem to be sticking to it very well :( Me and structure in eating do not get along very well LOL.

BearCountryGG on 08/15/2018:
I still eat the stuff totally knowing what the outcome will be.......I guess the punishment is less than the enjoyment of eating.....sad but true.

Friday after work I went to the gym to coach; no one showed up for the session so I got to work out with a co-worker instead for a bit. That was nice, actually, and lots of fun, which I needed because I was so bummed about being so sick that day. With fear in my heart, I ate a protein bar on the way home from the gym #1 because I was hungry and wanted to stop myself from stopping at a fast food joint for grease, and #2 because I wanted to see if it would make me sick. Success...it didn't! When I got home I had chicken and rice for supper and one more bathroom break before hitting the sack. And by sack, I mean couch, since it was far too hot to sleep upstairs with no air conditioning.

Up early on Saturday morning to coach at the gym again; I coached two sessions and drove straight home. For breakfast, I just ate a container of lactose-free yogurt. No problems! On the way home, another protein bar. Sipped on coffee with almond milk. I did some laundry, had some chicken and rice, then packed a bag and headed to BF's for the rest of the weekend. For supper, we ate at BF's sister's house and had burgers and baby potatoes. For dessert I tried a couple spoons of a whipped treat she made, then gave the rest to BF to finish. During the afternoon, I had a lot of stomach pain, and in the evening a couple of bathroom breaks but otherwise i'd say it was a better day than Friday!

I did not get a good sleep Saturday night, so Sunday was a late morning. I had brown toast with peanut butter and half of a banana for breakfast, then we did some shopping and went to the swimming pool for the rest of the day. I was craving potato chips, so I had a few doritos. After we popped supper in the oven to cook, BF and I went to the gym and had an awesome workout! Finally, we are working out again! It felt so good to be back at it, putting in the time. I had pork ribs and rice for supper. No explosive bathroom breaks on Sunday! WOOHOO!! BF helped me vacuum and wipe down my car, then we just hung out for the rest of the evening. While BF and his daughter had ice cream, I ate another lactose-free yogurt.

It was not hot overnight, especially sleeping in BF's cold basement, but I woke up around 1:00am sweating profusely, literally dripping with sweat! Wasn't my tummy though, so I just changed my clothes and went back to sleep. This morning came quickly; the 45 minute drive back home before heading to work this morning felt like it dragged on and on. So far today i've had a lactose-free yogurt with a banana oatmeal bar and sipping on coffee and almond milk. Feeling good so far!

BearCountryGG on 08/13/2018:
Sounds like things are improving....Hope that you are figuring out what agrees with you and what doesn't.....I have IBS and it does sound like it to me.

legcramps on 08/14/2018:
I'm definitely trying to stay away from some pinpointed 'trigger' foods, so I think that's helping! I do think it has something to do with IBS.

Donkey on 08/14/2018:
After reading this entry, I'm wondering if you have or had a bug rather than an allergy.... glad you seem to be feeling better! Good health is everything, isn't it?

legcramps on 08/14/2018:
I would have totally called it a bug if it hadn't lasted as long as it did... we're talking weeks of stomach issues, so although at some point during those weeks I could have been fighting something, I also think there are other issues going on.

Last night I didn't have the best sleep, I got sick late at night with stomach pain and it kept me up for about an hour.

Coaching today after work! I cooked a supply of chicken and rice for the next couple of days for myself. Today i'll give you an example of the number of times I have to use the bathroom...

7:00 am bathroom break

B: dairy-free smoothie (lactose-free yogurt, almond milk, bananas & strawberries), coffee (with almond milk, no sugar)

10:00 am bathroom break

NOTE TO SELF: Stomach pain, but I CANNOT cut out the coffee! I am addicted! But wait, I've barely had any coffee so far this morning, just a few sips...it must be something in the smoothie!

12:00 pm bathroom break

L: chicken and rice

1:30 pm so far no pain, but my tummy is rumbling so much!

2:30 pm bathroom break ughhhh

NOTE TO SELF: Oh does my tummy hurt now! Going to try some soda crackers.

D: chicken and rice

S: soda crackers

I'll get to the bottom of this eventually...in the meantime, if you haven't noticed, I haven't been doing much working out. I'm far more interested in applying heating pads and hugging my pillows lately. This is definitely some kind of flare up. I couldn't even imagine going out for a long ride!

horn_of_plenty on 08/10/2018:
stomach pain can just be to having SO MUCH LIQUID it's causing you to have to p*oop....

when i drink a lot of liquids, soon enough i gotta eliminate...usually....

i hope you feel better soon....and i do recall that you are fighting some food allergies / issues now...feel better lady.

sometimes my bowels at mixed up also when it's around the week of my period i have major issues / can't tolerate veggies as much.

legcramps on 08/10/2018:
Yes, that sometimes happens to me but I am on the depo provera shot so I don't have 'regular' periods so it's hard to know if that is the cause. I don't think it is, though it might be part of the reason for my symptoms! I definitely also have back pain; but you would think it wouldn't last so long! This is a few weeks now of stomach issues; this last week has been the worst, but it has definitely been building up to this point.

Donkey on 08/11/2018:
Oh I'm so sorry you are having to deal with this. This sounds a LOT like my husband's IBS.

You've really pared down your diet, and yet you are still suffering. I would be at a loss for any direction or suggestions. Does the pain feel like it's in your stomach or your intestines? Or lower GI (colon)?

I guess the only thing I can offer at this time is to suggest trying very hard to cut out all of the coffee. Even a few sips might be enough to throw your system into chaos. :-( I get how hard this would be - I'm so addicted. AND I am a totally different person without coffee - not very pleasant to be around.

I truly do hope that you can get to the bottom of this.
