BLOATING + GAS

Update from my life part idontevenknow.

Hey kids, hey blog, it's been a while. It's currently 3:36pm, I woke up around one and a half hours ago, and even though that was late as fuck, I took my time today, to go through my usual morning routine. I do have a morning routine, it's just not always in the morning, because I often go to bed late and wake up pretty late. I have still no fixed sleeping pattern but I do have a routine for after I wake up. Which is waking up, checking my phone for messages but not replying them immediately, checking insta stories, instagram, reading some blog entries and then slowly getting out of bed, making a cup of tea, taking out my macbook and starting to list out what I have to do for the day or simply doing something that comes up in my mind at that moment that makes me feel productive. Which is today writing this blog entry. Anything that I share with you guys is productive to me : ) I'm sitting in my hotel room with a nice sunny view, cup of tea next to me and thinking about one topic that has bothered me and influenced my life a lot the past year: bloating. My doctor told me that I have a stomach infection after I went there because of bloating. I thought my bloating and immense amount of gas in my stomach was directly linked to the infection but apparently it is not. The infection probably increases the level of inflammation that happens due to certain food intolerance but overall I think my bloating + gas is more related to what I eat. Hence I have to be more considerate about what I eat from now on. The reason why I got thinking about this is because I watched Lee's insta stories about bloating & constipation and then I moved on to read the blog entry and it totally relates to my case. Yesterday was horrible. I had a big Turkish dinner and the food was so so so good, but I felt bloated as fuckkkkk afterwards. I have a few ideas on what could cause my bloating and last night's dinner involved all of it. My belly was hugeeeee and filled with gas. After dinner all I wanted to do was to lie down. It's really not a nice feeling when after every meal you eat, you feel pretty shit. But that's what's been happening to me for the past almost two years. So I will look into Lee's tips and find out what causes my bloating and I guess I will have to change my diet. I might try the clean program I guess. I haven't been very healthy lately, my self-discipline hit bottom somewhere along the way, I slag off in pretty much everything and it's making me really really unhappy. But I know it's my fault, so it's time to kick my lazy ass again. Health and feeling well is at stake !  

SATURDAY

Spent by myself with myself

Today was one of those super super super rare days on which I stayed at home. Home means approximately 10 minutes walking distance from my apartment. I still had to walk my dog Juju, so I did leave the house. And I went to the gym downstairs. I also went to buy a loaf of bread at Tous Les Jours, which was a really bad idea. But the recipe in the SWEAT app by Kayla Itsines required bread. What the recipe did not require was me using the double amount of carbs and fat mentioned in the recipe. Well I'm only in week 1, I'll get there, I promise. Seriously eating one slice of bread does sound impossible, but nothing is impossible right ? And I only bought crappy Tous Les Jours bread (sorry if I'm offending anyone, but I like crispy and high quality bread. TLJ simply ain'ttt, don't argue with me on that one.) Imagine I had actual German Rye Bread... Oh god. I remember those times when I stayed home all day in Germany and was able to finish pretty much a whole loaf by myself. With nothing but butter. Bread and butter all day. Sounds pretty fucking amazing, but only if you have good bread and good butter. Ok where was I... I stayed home all day. It's 9pm. I woke up at 12pm. Was on the phone with far-distance relationship boyfriend until 4am last night. Can't blame me for that one huh, it wasn't because of Instagram or Pinterest ! I've been working on Floralpunk's new online shop for the past couple hours and we will launch it on June 1st ! We do have some problems, but I hope we can fix them. It's mostly language problems. I can't do the page in Vietnamese because I want that exact font, but it doesn't support Vietnamese. Check out is completely in Vietnamese because it's a Vietnamese e-commerce platform. Pretty shit for international customers. So right now the online shop is restricted to educated Vietnamese people who speak English and can do both. Great. Not. 

Anyway, this kind of day is rare these days because these days every day I have some sorts of meetings or have to go take photos, or I gotta run errands and whatever. So I'm really so much more than happy that I was able to stay home all day today. Introverts need their loner time I guess.
