Vaccinations and Day #3 AdvoCare Cleanse w/ craving tips

on April 13, 2017

To vaccinate or not to vaccinate that appears to be the question!  I mean seriously, there’s big debate over the matter as we speak.  Where do you stand?  Do you know the facts from both sides or do you just go blindly along (like I did) with doing what your doctor says you have to do?  I DID vaccinate all three of my children because I trusted my doctor to guide me in the right direction (because Doctor knows best right?).

After my son starting ticcing his little heart out I started looking into nutrition (and the fact that DOCTOR’S DON’T EVEN HAVE NUTRITIONAL TRAINING) to which led me into the study of vaccinations….

Regardless of whether you are FOR OR AGAINST vaccinations this documentary is a must see!  Click here for access—–> The Truth About Vaccinations

I woke up feeling fantastic this morning!!! I mean, I was little tired (going to bed late after church and getting up early) but it didn’t last long…my bloated tummy looked flatter and it didn’t HURT!!!

superfood smoothie

Yesterday I found a new Organic Superfood Blend smoothie I couldn’t wait to try (wasn’t too bad) so that was breakfast and I headed out with my water!  What is it I’ve said so many times?  Never leave the house unprepared!  Always carry a water/snack bag cause ya just never know!  What’s happened the last two days?  I’ve left UNPREPARED, no bag!  But, uh, I’m just dropping kids off at school and walking, I’m coming right back home…. UH, NEVER!  Arriving at school this morning my 9yo says, “We aren’t having an Easter party today just an egg hunt, teacher said if any parents want to send snacks we can share…but I forgot to tell you last night.”  What does my little mommy heart say??? “I HAVE TO GIVE THEM A PARTY!”  Yep, $60 later (craaaaazy) I head back to school with my multiple bags full of everything from fruits & veggies to toothpicks and paper products HaHa, I’m locked out of the school (which I appreciate they lock the perimeter doors but…), once I manage to find someone to let me in I walk in and the teacher says, “Oh we weren’t going to have a party today!  I didn’t wanna have to deal with all this.”  She later explained she didn’t want the kids too sugared up (knowing she had candy in the eggs) this afternoon, which I can relate, that is why I got grapes, pineapple, carrots & broccoli….but then I thought “Hey, this is a party” so I added bakery baked cookies, popcorn and real apple juice then as I realize I need paper products (and I’m HANGRY) where  I happen to see donuts buy 1 get one free.  What?  I don’t buy sugary stuff for my own kids yet what do I do? I buy the stupid “mini” donuts (big eye roll).

At this point it’s time for my snack and I haven’t even walked yet!!  I manage to make it two miles around the track in 25 minutes, down 16 oz and found cashews in my emergency stash (so, see, unbeknownst to me, I was prepared lol).

I don’t know about y’all but my days NEVER work out like I PLAN!

Oh, but I’m not done!  I get home and my husband wants me to ride with him to the repair shop and honey, I don’t care what I’m doing when my husband wants me to go anywhere I GO!  Knowing he would want to stop to eat at some point I grabbed the leftover cucumbers/tomatoes and eat them immediately (bc remember i’m hangry and those cashews were not enough for me).  I felt more human after those were gone but of course by the time we’re done it’s time to eat again and he wants breakfast.  I went into that restaurant wanting a grilled chicken salad but when I saw all the breakfast food (my favorite) I thought I can do this.  Ordered 3 scrambled eggs which came w/ shredded hash browns and I pushed the toast over to the side.  Y’all, I ate ALL those potatoes with my eggs and a slice of dry toast.  The toast!  I had no desire for the toast, haven’t even wanted bread (even passed on the jelly our waitress offered!)!! But guess what, I ate the toast 😦  ONE SLICE!  Guess what else?  I got that lil’ throat clearing thing going on, my tummy didn’t feel well and I’M BLOATED!!!  (I should probably interject here that I do not tolerate wheat very well, nor dairy, nor caffeine, nor sugar lol)

What do you do for cravings?  Personally I start with drinking water (I’ll take three Catalyst if it’s a strong one) and I ain’t gonna lie, the first day or two I’ll eat every 2 hours!!!!  I just focus on incorporating foods WITHOUT A LABEL when it’s “extra”.  But I gotta be quite honest the “cravings” are usually curbed on their own by day #3 and with me it’s not so much cravings as I just ENJOY EATING!  BUT, I know for a fact this is a good time to incorporate essential oils (y)

For cravings in general (like you just WANT and it’s nothing PARTICULAR) reach for ginger, grapefruit, peppermint or Metabolic Blend.  But what do most people crave when coming off sugar?  S-U-G-A-R!!!  The Metabolic Blend is still a great option here but the #1 oil to kick that sugar to the curb is cassia, then cinnamon, clove and again grapefruit.

TIP – Try your own “Crave Away” by placing 1-3 drops of grapefruit into palms, rub hands together vigorously; cup hands together and slowly inhale.  May augment with a drop of patchouli.

**Devotion post –  This morning while reading 2 Peter 1:4 over and over I kept wondering how could I explain this to a lost person… even reading a commentary that goes along w/ it I couldn’t manage to put it into my own words where I felt a lost person would understand. I received such blessings simply reading this commentary passage that I wanted to share…

Those who receive the promises of the gospel partake of the divine nature. They are renewed in the spirit of their mind, after the image of God, in knowledge, righteousness, and holiness; their hearts are set for God and his service; they have a divine temper and disposition of soul; though the law is the ministration of death, and the letter killeth, yet the gospel is the ministration of life, and the Spirit quickeneth those who are naturally dead in trespasses and sins. Those in whom the Spirit works the divine nature are freed from the bondage of corruption. Those who are, by the Spirit of grace, renewed in the spirit of their mind, are translated into the liberty of the children of God; for it is the world in which corruption reigns. Those who are not of the Father, but of the world, are under the power of sin; the world lies in wickedness. And the dominion that sin has in the men of the world is through lust; their desires are to it, and therefore it rules over them. The dominion that sin has over us is according to the delight we have in it.  I’m so thankful that God saved me out of the world and I get to partake in all his promises
