on January 30, 2016

Day 18 / January 29

With your morning Spark you will take your 1st packet on the MNS sleeve, marked “30 minutes before breakfast” and if you’re using Catalyst/3 and ThermoPlus/1 you’ll take these now.

BREAKFAST –  MRS or Fussless FP Quiche (Pg. 151 Cookbook) (take both “with meal” MNS/White packets) **see note

SNACK –  Cocoprotein/FP

30 minutes before lunch take your last MNS/Yellow packet

LUNCH:   Rotisserie chicken w/ Troodles and Spinach/S  (this would’ve been FP had I not included Olive Oil for cooking)

30 minutes before snack take Catalyst/3 and spark if needed (or uh wanted) 😉

SNACK:    I did have lunch however it escapes me WHAT it was lol~

DINNER:  (leftover) Creamy Chicken/S

**This morning we already have over 1” of snow and it’s supposed to keeping falling through the next two days which makes me think I NEED SATISFYING S meals.  I had planned the FP Fussless Quiche for breakfast but opted to make it an S by using the whole egg, not just the egg white!  The addition of the psyllium husk made it “bready” Mmmmm (you can totally make this dish without that ingredient but it may leave you wanting a slice of toast)

Seriously the cocoprotein drinks have saved me!  I try to keep these on hand for last minute and on-the-go (ballgame) fillers but days like today when I’m sitting in front of the computer all day and I cannot find the time to get up and prepare or even warm.  WIth my lil’ being sickly I’ve gotten THREE classes behind on my nutrition course and then Facebook has made some changes on how often you can post so my Paparazzi Bling party was interrupted last night so I’m having to wait 3-5 minutes between post but make sure I get all 100+ pictures uploaded.

Total water consumption 96 oz

It occurred to me upon waking this morning that I haven’t shared the GGMS or Shrinker Tea w/  y’all!!  Where have I been? GGMS aka good girl moonshine (Pg 397 Cookbook) is great to get you going in the mornings (because sometimes I just do not want the caffeine of the Spark or the tart of just lemon water)!  Contrary to the name of this drink it does NOT contain alcohol so don’t worry about going to work loot HaHa  The ACV (apple cider vinegar) is the only buzz you’ll have going on 😉  ACV and ginger are both considered superfoods and powerful digestive aids.  GGMS detoxifies, clarifies, alkalizes your body and aids in weight loss.  The pinterest link above will give you so many flavor options for the GGMS but my favorite is the Strawberry-Lime (though I typically use lemon) (y).  Also GGMS is considered FP so you don’t have to worry about switching fuels (but careful when adding extras like fruit–i use strawberries–because too many will put you into E territory).  The Shrinker Tea/FP is another favorite of mine and what I used (originally) to help me get off the Starbucks kick a couple years ago (that I stupidly picked back up when the Pumpkin Spice showed up in the fall). Shrinker Tea is praised for it’s ability to help shrink fat cells (what??).  It’s combined thermogenic-boosting ingredients promote energy and help speed your metabolism.  It is NOT to replace a meal or snack but it helps resist the urge to nibble during prep times or to not OVER-snack.  Someone asked me “if this is considered a thermogenic booster should I still take my ThermoPlus”.  YES!  Only taking ONE ThermoPlus in the mornings sometimes I find I need another “kick” later in the day and this drink is a great one (but the oolong tea DOES have caffeine so just be aware of when you drink one of these if you’re planning to have Spark in the afternoon).  I have JUST this morning ordered my Vitamin C powder to try the Singing Canary…more details to come.

30 minutes before lunch take your last MNS/Yellow packet

DINNER:  2 slices of UDI’s bread (1 w/ cheese and 1 w/ natural peanut butter)

Lil’ bit woke up EARLY but feeling much better today (woohoo), good enough to fix breakfast for everyone!  But basically the rest of the day was a total BUST!  Shortly after breakfast rather than making oat flour, almond milk, almond flour and mixing all-purpose gluten-free flour I was IN THE BED!  Praise the Lord for my oils because my body has definitely been fighting against the sickness that has gone through my home w/ the kids these last 2.5-3 weeks.  I’m NOT sick but my head feels “off”.  Let me explain that my meneires disease doesn’t tolerate barometric pressure and my head can tell when there’s drastic changes or a “front” pushing through!  I know, I know, you’re wondering what the what?  Ménière’s disease is a disorder of the inner ear that causes severe dizziness (vertigo), ringing in the ears (tinnitus), hearing loss, and a feeling of fullness or congestion in the ear. It makes my head feel heavy and what I call “FLOOPY”.  It was once explained to me by the neurologist as a severe sodium-potassium imbalance.  I have found (other than the weather) a couple of my biggest triggers are STRESS and NUTRITION!  Today episode seemed to be paired w/ stress!  I have discovered that my lil’ doesn’t tolerate antibiotics!  They make her rather mean, extremely moody and dangerously brave (w/ her attitude) and another weird thing is that she CANNOT take antibiotics and acetaminophen at the same time or else she breaks out into a rash :/

The ONLY thing that alleviates the meneires symptoms is REST!  If I can catch a spell coming on before it hits me, I use my oils to help.  I can keep nausea at bay with Ginger and Peppermint then I use a blend mixed with Grounding and Calming oils to help me relax enough to doze.  My lil’ checks on me periodically and brings me the oils or tells me which one I need to be using 🙂  She’s pretty smart about em!  (Wondering where to buy essential oils?)

Because most of my day was spent in the bed my bouts of getting up was specifically to eat but when I feel this way I have a hard time being up for longer periods of time….therefore my nutrition was put on the back burner!  Slept through the first snack.  Managed to be up long to throw together a quick lunch and then for dinner the kid had some cheese toast and thought it might be good for me ❤  I don’t typically eat bread unless it’s some that I’ve made but that wasn’t happening today!  But I’m not gonna beat myself up about it!  Tomorrow is a new day and I’ll be back on track (y)
