Keep those jewelry $50 gift card giveaway entries coming. We are loving the words you guys are thinking of!
We have been busy over here with planning and filming (and editing) workout videos for our Purely Fitters (like the new name, Lori thought of it haha).Plus keeping up with Purely Talk videos. Crazy how much time it takes to do videos. We knew it would be a lot of work but did not realize how time consuming videos making and editing can be.
Love waking up being to wake up and get a good sweat in! Legs were burning.
Remember to keep going! Keep working hard in your workouts. Each one will become easier as you become stronger.
Some highlights of what we have been up to.
We are enjoying our fruit-free green juices.
Monday’s lunch was some raw zucchini with duck egg, fresh figs, plantain and arugula with coconut oil.
Lovely dinner outside.
We have been enjoying plantains all the time now, and we have a new way we have been enjoying them. Recipe coming soon!
We are starting to make marshmallows again. We just got lazy and stopped making them. We are happy to have them back.
Snacked on some new recipes.
Last night’s dinner was sautéed swiss chard, turnips, avocado and our homemade beef liver meatballs. And sea salt. YUM.
Okay so let’s get to the fixing the leak talk shall we.
As you all know we both are still struggling with some health issues (mainly skin issues). What we have concluded, from all our readings and research, is that when you have eczema (plus other skin conditions) it is considered an autoimmune disease.
Although many doctors won’t put it them into that category. Lori is still having bad hormonal acne (which again leads back to the gut–> leaky gut does affect hormones). So we are thinking of changing up our eats just a tad to focus on healing our leaking gut some more.
Even though our 30 day gut healing journey went well and we feel it really jump started our healing. We realized we still have a long healing journey to do…since our skin is still giving us signs! As we keep mentioning here, healing takes time. And we have realized we might need more time.
After reading this acne healing article again (sometimes reading articles for a second time really helps us see something we might have overlooked before). Our focus is fixing that leaky gut more! All this gut talk really starts to make sense. It helps to re-read things over, especially as our body changes we have to adapt and change with it.
The body is an amazing thing. It provides us with signs all the time. We just have to have the strength, courage and patience to listen, change, and take action!
We are not doing anything crazy with our eats, just some minor changes. We will continue to share our eats, just not going to show everything since many of our eats are the same over and over. And we don’t want to bore you guys.
Okay enough gut talk!
Wishing you all a happy blessed day!
Lori and Michelle
