My journal of my battle with Crohns disease. I have had Crohn's diagnosed since September 2007. In that time I've been through two surgeries, two colonoscopies, and tons of good and bad times. I want to share my experiences with this disorder and hope to hear some feedback from time to time.

New Year, a Better Me

Thursday, January 1, 2015
Happy new year! 2014 is behind us, and it's time to look forward to a healthy, pain and flare free 2015.

I plan on accomplishing this for myself a few ways.  First, diet.  I've never really controlled what I have eaten since having Crohns.  I know what foods will bother me more than others, but I've never kept track of everything.  I would like to pay attention to what is bothering me, and actually try to eliminate it.  This goes for drinks as well.  I drink way too much soda, and never enough water.

Second, is stress.  I manage pretty well, but I should would like to remove the stressors from life.  I recognize how my body feels when stressed, and it's just better being happy.

The last thing is physical activity.  My weight has gone up and down a lot since 2007, and even now will swing wildly week by week.  For a long time I was feeling horrible, but since I better, I want to take advantage of that.  I feel great after working out, plus it always helps with stress.

I hope you all have a great year.
