I am this week still on my training schedule and then next week I start my new work schedule. I got two free days off so I took them consecutively next week after my days off so I get 4 days in a row. I need it to just breathe and regroup.
The new schedule after that will at least give me a shot at seeing people during the day for a lunch date and on the weekends for bbqs (at least until 4 pm when I have to go into work).
Plus not to get all TMI on you. I'm hoping that that now that there is less stress my stomach will go back to a somewhat normal schedule. Lately anything I eat goes right through me and that is not the way I want to live.
Surprisingly enough I haven't gained any weight. This type of work doesn't allow for "snacking" so it has helped me to stay on an eating schedule. I of course feel a bit fatter due to not moving as much as I want too but I'm slowly but surely getting back into working out as well.
I feel much more positive about everything. The fall is so nice in New England and I'm looking forward to walks with my friend around the lake on the weekends again and just kind of enjoying being outside without sweating.
Thanks for all my followers for hanging in there with me through all my whiney, feeling sorry for myself posts. I feel so much better getting on the other side of this training and knowing I have a permanent job now.

I'm currently reading this book Digestive Health with Real Food has anyone read it? I'm really trying to pinpoint what triggers my body. I had IBS years ago when I was married, but it literally did so much better when I got divorced, but then I had my gall bladder removed and since then I have bouts of trouble with the digestive track, but these last 3 months, exasperated by the stress I was under, I couldn't eat ANYTHING without running to the bathroom. I would really like to find my triggers and stay away from them so I don't have to be seated near a restroom within 20 mins of consuming a meal.
Anyone else have similar digestive issues? How did you cope? What were your triggers?
