5 Drinks that I Need to Drink Every Single Day – From Someone with Stomach Issues

Liquid tends to fill me up, so this is very difficult for me to do, or I would probably never eat at that point. I don’t eat that much because I have a very weak stomach and I am scared of eating half of the time or very burdened half of the time to eat. My mom was scared that I would end up in the hospital growing up.

Honestly though, as an adult looking back, I would be worried too. All I did was eat school lunch, drink orange juice, and sleep all day after school. But nevertheless. These are the four drinks that I am trying to drink every single day.

1. Water

I can’t explain this enough. You need water to hydrate yourself, keep that skin supple, your body is made up a lot of water. Just get your emotional support water bottle and keep sipping that water throughout the day.

If you don’t have an emotional support water bottle, then get one. Get a super cute water bottle that you are obsessed with so that you carry it everywhere.

2. Coffee

I don’t think I need to explain this either. I don’t know, something about being an adult makes it really difficult to have energy unless I drink coffee. Is my body addicted to it? I don’t know. Do I even need it some days? Not really. But do I drink it anyways to jump start my brain so I can start working? Yes. Yes I do.

3. Smoothies

I have a huge issue with smoothies. I can’t eat them without bananas and I always procrastinate when it comes to making smoothies and then bananas go bad and I always waste them and give them to my friend and she just makes banana bread out of it.

I admit, I was not paying attention when she was trying to teach me. I should freeze the bananas. But as you can tell from the intro, I am wildly unhealthy and undernourished. I need to blend all those nutrients in a blender and chug them down for my own well being.

4. Protein Shakes

Honestly, thinking about it now, I could probably put the smoothie and protein shake into one drink, but it just tastes weird when you mix protein powder with a smoothie. But people do a really good job in putting protein powder in. I also don’t like meat. Something about it makes my body really tired and it digests so slow, that I just don’t like eating it.

I could practically go vegan at this point, but I love cheese, and I don’t mind meat once in a while.

I have been working out lately, if you have been seeing my posts, and so I want to incorporate protein shakes in my diet. So protein shakes are truly a great addition to that!

5. Fun Drinks

Because my stomach is a little weakling. Snacking can be fun or I could end up throwing up. I have an allergy test that I need to take, but I like to drink juice as a snack. It is light on my stomach, and fills it enough as if I am snacking.

Summary

I am not a dietitian. Actually, maybe I could have asked my sister because she is an actual certified registered dietitian, and she is the one who sent me the allergy test. I am not an expert, but this is what I do, and I have been okay with it. And then I eat dinner. I make sure it has fiber. I don’t know if that is healthy. Don’t listen to me. This is just a personal opinion and a routine for the limitations that I have.

But whatever you do, make sure you have fiber, understand what foods don’t sit well in your stomach and try to figure out why. Make sure you have all your nutrients to keep yourself alive. Treat yourself like you treat your own beloved pet. Take yourself on walks and feed yourself nutritious food.

Tips if you are starting to give up your gym New Years resolution

So let’s face it, most of us had some kind of workout New Years resolution, or at least we tried. At this point, most people stop going to the gym because they have gotten tired of it.

I’m not going to lie. I usually stop going to the gym after one month. But I am still going to the gym because of these tips I constantly remind myself.

TIPS TO KEEP YOU AT THE GYM

1. Results begin to be visible after a month

I don’t know what reason you are going to the gym for. But results are going to be visible for you in a month. Other people may not see it but you will because it’s the slightest change in your own body. Be patient and be consistent.

2. Results become visible to others at 3 months

People are going to be noticing your physical change in three months. And your only taking an hour from each day to work out. People won’t notice until time passes and you are consistent with it.

3. Find a friend to go with

I have tried the New Years resolution of the gym every year. And always failed after one month. My body got tired, and I kept giving myself passes to skip the gym.

That is why having a friend to go to the gym with and keep you accountable really keeps you going. You have to go cause your friend is going and they have already gotten ready. They are even on their way to pick you up! You have no choice but to go!

The hardest part is getting to the gym, and that is the physically easiest part of the whole gym experience.

Get a friend who can keep you accountable.

4. If it was easy, everyone would do it

There is a reason why only a percentage of the world is fit. If it was easy to have that dream summer body, trust me, everyone would have it by now.

But typically everyone quits by one month anyways. If you want those results, you need to think differently. You need to work out consistently.

When you feel like your at a breaking point of not wanting to go, just remind yourself that you’ve come to the bridge where you need to cross in order to make the gym a habit.

5. This year will be different

After you have tried and failed every year, tell yourself that this year will be different. And tell yourself over and over u til you believe it.

I refuse to live the same lifestyle I have lived before. Working a nine to five job. Not actually diving into my passions, always quitting the gym. This is my motto now. This year will be different. There are only twelve months of the year. Take it month by month. You CAN do it. It’s not about ability. It’s about belief.

Conclusion

We have gone through so much the past couple of years. We have had our time to be at home and heal. Stop wasting your time and get back up. You only have one life to live and whether you start at 16 or 45, you have to start sometime. Better now than never.
