Remember this our plan to heal our gut. Consult your doctor before beginning any program. Adjust to your own body and needs. We have done our own research and have come to these steps to help us in our journey to heal our stomach issues. Please do your own research before starting anything new. We are not really sure how long we plan to do this program. And over time we might be changing things depending on how our bodies are doing. We plan to share just about everything as we heal, so we apologize now if somethings are TMI. We want to be honest as we are using our blog as our journal.
We did 12 minute core cardio (a new video will be up Monday) followed by more core work – 5 sets of 20 lower leg raises, 2 min low plank, 2 min bridge, 1 min on each side plank on elbows. Ended workout with 5 sets of 5 pull-ups on our equalizer.
Recap of our Saturday Eats:
probiotic and 1/2 tsp fermented cod liver oil and l-glutamine
Enjoyed one banana and 2 cups of coffee.
About 30 mins later I enjoyed 1 cup cooked kale, 2 whole eggs (1 raw yolk), 3 1/2 oz sweet potato, spoonful kraut and 1 tbsp coconut oil topped with turmeric, fresh ginger, and cinnamon
(then worked out)
Late lunch was about 5 oz salmon (cooked on skillet with coconut oil) and 1 cup sliced zucchini and 1 cup shredded carrots (I cooked together in coconut oil with spices). Topped my lunch with dulse flakes and 1 tbsp coconut oil.
Before dinner took – digestive enzyme, l-glutamine, quercetin
Enjoyed 1 sardine mashed up with 1/2 avocado some horseradish mustard, fresh ginger, and a spoonful of sauerkraut. I know might not look appealing but it is the only way I can eat sardines right now.
Dinner was grilled veggies (zucchini, fennel, onions, cauliflower, asparagus ~all cooked in coconut oil) with cod and a little more salmon, and a side of sardine avocado mash and topped it off with 1 tbsp coconut oil.
Enjoyed this after dinner.
Dessert was 1 tbsp coconut oil with 1 tbsp carob powder mixed together. I am slowly getting used to not having something sweet after dinner.
Went to bed pretty late so forgot to rub magnesium oil on legs.
Michelle: Day two recap -
Bathroom: did go to the bathroom in the morning (came out with ease) and a little drops later in the day
Energy: good, pretty focused throughout the day
Skin: skin still really itchy and dry, no new breakouts, skin pretty much the same
Water intake – 10 cups (includes kombucha)
Morning- probiotic and 1/2 tsp fermented cod liver oil and l-glutamine
After taking my pills I enjoyed some black coffee with one large banana.
Little bit later I made myself the typical two egg, 3 1/2oz steamed sweet potato with sautéed kale topped with 1 tbsp coconut oil, plus added in some freshly grated ginger. Forgot how much I love fresh ginger in my meals. Great for digestion and getting the metabolism moving.
Gary’s parents were in town for the afternoon and they treated us to a lunch out. I ordered myself a tuna salad. I had asked for the dressing on the side but they did not. Hate that as I do not like a lot of salad dressing as restaurants always put way too much dressing on.I still enjoyed my salad.
Before dinner took – digestive enzyme, l-glutamine, quercetin, licorice
Highlights of my dinner, besides more fresh ginger, was horseradish mustard and sauerkraut. I have been buying store bought sauerkraut as I have not had the time to make homemade yet. Hopefully soon I will get back into making it.
Dinner was the other half of my canned salmon (leftover from the other night) and a sardine, half avocado, some wilted greens, about 1/2 cup chopped turnips, little broccoli and fennel. All topped with sauerkraut, mustard, 1 tbsp coconut oil and freshly grated ginger. Love that mustard mixed with ginger!
And again I enjoyed my coconut oil mush. Here I did 1 tbsp coconut oil mixed with 1 tbsp carob and a heaping 1 tbsp coconut flour.
Like Michelle, I went to bed really late so forgot to rub magnesium oil on legs.
Lori: Day two recap -
Bathroom: did go to the bathroom in the morning
Energy: had great energy throughout the day
Skin: skin still really itchy and dry, had one more small pimple come next to nose/under eye area, besides that skin is the same, back still the same (feel like the inflammation and rash is slowly going away)
Water intake - 10 cups (includes kombucha)
Both of us had an overall good Saturday. No major complaints nor improvements.
