Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Smelly woes

Yooooo, what up home slices? Please excuse my absence but it’s my last week of classes and I’ve been a little busy. I will most likely have irregular attendance next week too because it’s finals week. This time next week graduate school will be a thing of the past and I will be one happy bitch!

Lucky for you guys, you haven’t missed much since the last time I posted. The only news is that I’ve been SO gassy. I mean, this is getting a bit ridiculous. Here are a few suspected culprits.

A true poop patty: English muffin topped with refried beans, corn, and mushrooms.

Three layer hummus and 18 pounds of veg??

Or could I attribute it to three new purchases found at Trader Joes?

Dried Fruit absolutely equals Fart City

Let’s chat about these new finds. My sister turned me on to the Wasabi Wow mix. This stuff feels like a dance party on my tongue but it can be addicting so measure out in advance. Next we have dried bananas. I haven’t tried them yet so review will come later. The rock fart star purchase of the week is Unsweetened, Unsulfured Pineapple rings. Pineapple is the only ingredient and 5 of them are 110 calories. You better believe I’ve been enjoying at least one serving since Monday.

As if I didn’t have enough to worry about, I made the mistake of packing roasted broccoli yesterday for lunch. This meant that I was the smelly girl on the bus; it was clear that the other passengers took note of the exploding stench of foot coming out of my lunch bag.

So it goes.

Anyway, I’m off the Pennsylvania today to spend the weekend at my sisters. We are running a 10 mile race on Sunday so I better be sure to stay away from the pineapple.

P.S. I got offered a per diem position where I intern so I’ll be working there until the week of July 4th. After that I am jobless and will be living in a card board box.
