Hoping tomorrow is a better day! Having a lot of back pain tonight as well but that may be from the laundry, cleaning the bathroom, sweeping all the floors and sitting in an unusual chair to work on my blog. It isn't as bad as it sometimes get, for which I am thankful. I think the ice pack is calling my name!

Day 4 & 5 No Wheat/Dairy
So the last few days have been pretty good, although I have not felt as good as the previous three days. Yesterday, I felt good until after supper and then had some pain and discomfort; nothing major, but a little more than the last few days. This morning when I got up I felt pretty horrible with typical IBS symptoms until mid-afternoon. I did use store-bought broth in my Persian Beef I made for supper. Usually I have homemade stock or broth but I was out. When looking at the ingredients in the broth this afternoon I noticed wheat is not in the ingredient list, but there is a disclaimer on the bottom that says it may contain wheat or soy. For crying out loud! Lesson learned. Labels need to be read thoroughly. It may have been the jelly beans too, even though they are gluten free. Just keeping it real though….I have a great love of jelly beans.
Exercise yesterday was just a mile and a half walk with Koda. It was a beautiful day here in Virginia and the area around where we live is so peaceful.
