on January 21, 2014

DAY 16:  PHASE II:  TUESDAY 1/21/2014 “True joy comes when you inspire, encourage, and guide someone else on a path that benefits him or her.” Zig Ziglar

Upon waking, mix Spark (pouch or scoop) w/ 8 oz water & take you first “30 minutes before breakfast” yellow pill pack (THIS IS ALSO WHEN I TAKE MY 3 CATALYST/1-2 THERMOPLUS) Within an hour you need to have breakfast consisting of at least 10g protein w/ less than 30g carbs

**Your MRS/Meal Replacement Shake is to replace ONE meal each day, I choose breakfast but you can have it for whichever meal best suits you.  (Personally, I mix all my MRSs w/ ice, I like a “shake” more so than a drink.  I add 1 tsp natural PB to the chocolate and couple frozen berries to the berry &/or vanilla)

BREAKFAST:  **Take both white pill packs (or can split w/ lunch)
MRS OR Frosted Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits (ohhh lawwwwd):  S/GF/DF (
2 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup coconut oil, softened
2 eggs, at room temperature
2 Tablespoons honey (not THM)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cup raisins
*For the frosting:
2 Tablespoons coconut oil, softened
2 Tablespoons raw honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt
Preheat your oven to 350F.   In a medium bowl, combine the almond flour, sea salt, cinnamon and baking soda, and whisk well. In a separate bowl, stir together the coconut oil, eggs and honey, then add them to the dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms. Stir in the raisins, then use a 1/4 cup to scoop out 8 portions of dough. I used my hands to create biscuit-like shapes.  Bake at 350F for about 13-15 minutes.
Simply whip together the coconut oil, honey, vanilla and salt until creamy, then spread generously onto the cooled biscuits! YOU’RE WELCOME 🙂

1/2 cup Low fat cottage cheese
1 scoop Protein powder (chocolate or vanilla)
2-4 pkts Stevia (or 1/4-1 tbs sweetener of choice)

1/2-1 cup water (Alter this according to desired consistency)
1 tbs Cocoa powder
2 tbs Peanut flour (or PB2 or peanut butter)
1/2 tsp Caramel extract (or to taste; i don’t have this)

SNACK:  Rice cake w/ nut butter

Mix mustard, honey, & lemon juice well in seperate bowl. Cook chicken sprinkling lightly with kosher salt . Cook until done. Place chicken in another bowl and drizzle mustard mixture on top. Garnish with parsley.

Most women today are afraid to lift weights because they think they will get ‘bulky’, and turn into an over-sized bodybuilder! In thinking this, they feel like ‘cardio’ is the only answer to lose weight, completely skipping out on strength (weight) training. Big NO NO!  If I told you that lifting weights actually burns calories, would you be more inclined to do it? Did you know that you can burn 10 pounds of fat without changing your diet just through weight training, or what is known as strength training? In your exercise routine, you need to include strength training with your cardio.

Let me tell you why. After you lift weights during your workout, your body will get a metabolic burst for an hour because it is trying to aid your muscles in recovery. PH.D researchers, at South Shore YMCA in Massachusetts, state that an additional 25 percent of calories are burned when lifting weights. This means if you burned 200 calories during strength training, you really are burning about 250 calories. In addition, “every 3 pounds of muscle you build, you’ll burn an extra 120 calories a day,”-just chilling-.

The reason for this is because muscle uses more energy to keep going. So don’t be afraid of building muscle! Remember that bodybuilders consume a significant amount of calories lifting very heavy weights to ‘bulk up,” so an average girl working out will not turn into Arnold Schwarzenegger if done correctly!
