Yesterday we felt like moving the body outside… so we went for a interval walk/run. It was another perfect day to be outside. We used our Gymboss Interval Timer to do an interval workout. We set our timer for 1 minute of walking and 30 seconds of a fast run/sprint. We did it for about 12 minutes total.
We are both really enjoying these intervals walk/sprint workouts to work the body differently. And doing interval workouts are great for cardio.
A few of you requested for a 15 minute full body workout- so we are going to work on that and have that workout for you guys here soon! Later today we will be sharing a new 10 minute ab routine on our youtube channel.
Both of us woke up feeling like donuts.
We grabbed our mini donut maker (we use the brand Bella that we bought from Target a few years ago) and made ourselves our mini cardamom vanilla coconut flour based donuts. We kept them plain (no topping) and played around with the recipe some making them with stevia. We plan to make them again to share an updated recipe. We split the batch of donuts. So good. Soft and cake-like.
Later we enjoyed water, coffee and some perfect fit protein mush before going on our interval run-walk workout. We added in 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil to our protein mush. Great pre-workout fuel.
Post-workout was eggs and sautéed greens.
Also enjoyed lots of veggie pulp crackers with chia seeds.
Went to Whole Foods to grab some things for dinner and juicing ingredients for the week and snacked on a pre-made green lemonade on the car ride home.
Since it was a perfect day we decided to grill again for dinner and enjoy it outside. Our plates were full of butter lettuce, steamed brussel sprouts, avocado, grilled cod (that we got from Whole Foods), black lava sea salt (we get from Mountain Rose Herbs) and some olive oil. Delicious.
Many of you have asked how we are still doing with our bowel movements and skin. Well, for the most part we are both still doing fairly well in both departments. We seem to go to the bathroom just about every day, not perfect but making progress. And in terms of our skin – we both are doing good. Michelle’s back is just about cleared up, but still struggling with keratosis pilaris on her arms and really bad dry itchy skin a few days a week (it seems to come and go). Lori’s face just had a flare-up but now her face is back to having clear skin, but her back is still struggling to get clear!
So you can see we both are still dealing with skin issues. We are thinking of somewhat going back to eating like we did during our gut healing 30 day journey (though our eats now are still fairly close to what we did during that time) because we feel our bodies need a little bit longer to heal (since we still have these skin rashes we feel our bodies are telling us something still is inflamed).
We will continue to share updates on our skin issues here on the blog as we know others out there are struggling as well. Once we figure out our own skin issues we will share our findings in hopes that it may help you!
