Lori: On Sunday, Gary and I went for a 10 minute interval run. Also did 5 minute plank as a warm-up. Did interval 30 second and 30 second sprint for 30 and jog for 30.
Came back to do some extra leg stuff. And Jax wanted to join in!
Michelle: It was a beautiful day out yesterday so I knew I had to get outside. Like Lori I did 5 minute plankworkout as warmup and them did 10 minute interval sprints/jog routine – used Gymboss Interval Timer – 10 rounds of 30/30 second intervals. Walked/jogged for 30 then sprinted 30 second, and repeated for 10 rounds. Ended my workout with a mini arm routine that Lori created for me. I am trying to work my arms more to help get them more toned! Lots of push-ups 😉 I felt amazing before this workout and even better afterwards. I was surprised I had so much energy, but I think my body is learning to use fat as fuel.
Sunday was a donut kind of morning in our household. Before donut making happened I did take my usual morning supplements.
Made Gary our mini coconut flour cardamom donuts.
I made myself a donut I could enjoy (again since I am avoiding many foods still). These were just like our grain free carob waffles and coconut waffles ideas. I just did eggs, coconut flour and mesquite with some coconut oil on top. Enjoyed my unique donuts with some black coffee.
Little bit later went for a run. Came back and enjoyed some perfect fit brown rice protein (like we mentioned already wanting to experiment with having that again).
Just had one scoop of the protein powder mixed with some water and added some l-glutamine.
Felt fine after eating it. No gas or bloating, or anything else. Felt good. So hopefully that means I can enjoy it again as I really like it.
About 20 minutes after protein mush I made myself some shrimp and cauliflower topped with dulse flakes and coconut oil.
Made some food for our super bowl party that evening with friends. Made gluten-free chocolate chip cookies from our purely classic cookbook (have you gotten your copy yet?) and made our broccoli breadsticks.
Before heading over to our friends house. I took my usual dinner pills and gelatin in water.
Before heading out I enjoyed one grass-fed burger (from US Wellness Meats) and sauteed kale with coconut oil on top. Soooo good. I also took my typical pre-dinner supplements that I took during the 30 days. I plan to continue taking them as I feel they are really helping.
Enjoyed some kombucha mixed with tequila as my drink for the night.
Very nice food and dessert spread at the party. I just ate some broccoli breadsticks and drank my drink 🙂
I came home and enjoyed a carob chia seed coconut oil mush. I did 2 tbsp carob, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 tbsp gelatin, 1 tbsp coconut oil and some water and stevia. Weird but good!
Quick recap: My day yesterday was a success in the bowel movement department. I felt great all day long. I had no bloating or any discomfort. My skin (face) is looking better each day, just about blemish free. And my back is very slowly getting better, but I know it will heal as I continue to take care of it through tea tree pads, jojoba oil and of course diet.
Michelle Sunday Eats:
After sleeping in and enjoying a slow relaxing morning, I made my mom and me a wonderful warm breakfast – coffee, eggs (cooked in bacon fat) and bacon!
Perfect! I enjoyed my morning chat with my mom 🙂
I did computer work all morning and then around noon I felt ready to workout!
Post workout was an old favorite – Perfect fit mush!!! Just 1 scoop perfect fit with a little water to create a mush. I did add some l-glutamine too.
Love, love, love this protein powder. My body seemed fine with it too! Felt great after eating it.
Lunch was grilled cod with brussel sprouts and lots of coconut oil and some dulse flakes!
I made some broccoli breadsticks to enjoy…yummy!
Dinner was more broccoli breadsticks, cooked kale and fennel with buffalo burger topped with ghee. I too enjoyed a kombucha margarita (or two).
And my dessert was carob chia cake, I just did gelatin instead of coconut flour and topped my dessert with coconut oil. Perfect way to end my day.
Michelle – recap of my day:
My energy was great all day. And for bathroom success – well I had little movements all day long!! This is huge for me. Even though each time it was very small, but the idea that my body had urges throughout the day is a big step forward for me.
Glad everyone is enjoying our updated plan for healing our gut. We still will share our eats and document our journey just might not be every day. We are not really sure how to play it out here on the blog. As we know these past 30 days our blog post might have seemed boring or very routine like, but there was no other way around that. We are excited to get back into recipe development and keep experimenting with our diet.
Thanks again for letting us share our 30 day journey.
What does our future hold? Well, we will find out one day at a time. 🙂
Happy Monday friends!
Anyone else enjoy watching the Super Bowl and Beyonce half-time show?
