This week has been a bit weird for me. I haven’t worked out for two days now (Tuesday and Wednesday), when I usually work out 6 days a week, but my knee has been really bothering me, as well as my gut. This change from no/little carbs, especially white carbs, has really thrown my body for a weird loop. I feel as thought my sibo symptoms have gotten moderately worse. I am not sure if this is because of the initial addition of processed white carbohydrates or not, but I am willing to keep moving forward and seeing if this will help. I am going to try to go to the gym again tonight, wishing myself some luck ha-ha.

Update on how I was feeling this week:

One word. Terrible. I felt awful. I woke up Monday feeling not to badly, however by mid afternoon my sibo symptoms (bloated gut, feeling awful and sick) had gone from mild to full on bloated feeling like death fast. And it lasted 3 whole days. By Thursday (today) I had realized I had run out of a specific probiotic I have been taking for a few months now (Lorna Vanderhaeghe Probiotic Plus). I picked some up from whole foods on my break in a desperate hope that these probiotics will fix my newly acquired immense pain. I had two on my break and will have my regular two in the morning Friday.

Friday: I felt not terrible but not great still. Friday night was weird. I have been having knee pains and sore joints for a while but I had immense back pain and a sharp pain in my gut area. I was bloated and in pain all day but this was different. It was like this sharp stabbing kind of pain. I headed straight to bed around 9:00 pm after very unsuccessfully and pretty unintelligently trying to “run it off” at the gym. Today Saturday November 7, I feel a little better. I was able to gym. I still have to wonder if my sibo was acting up because of the lack of the probiotics, or is it the increase in white simple sugars and proteins that have my body feeling this way. I will keep you updated.
