Thursday workout was some equalizer action and plank cardio 12 minute workout of ours!
Love working on the equalizer. It challenges my body in such a different way. Which I am feeling sore today from it 🙂 Oh ya love the feeling of really working the muscles.
Every time you get dressed and put your shoes on REPEAT to yourself “I got this” because your body can do amazing things if you BELIEVE!!
After doing my morning workout I took my morning supplements and pills before getting to juicing.
Enjoyed some stevia based marshmallows.
Gathered my juice ingredients. I am taking a little break from juicing beets at the moment.
I made a simple carrot cucumber romaine juice with a hint of fennel! I added in some coconut oil to the juice too.
After my juice I made myself my 2 eggs cooked in ghee and added in some ground turkey. Michelle and I are trying to add in a little more protein to our breakfast to see how we do. I was full for hours with this meal!
Lunch was some of Michelle’s and my liver meatballs.
My meatballs were made with ground beef and chicken livers that I got from Whole Foods. I enjoyed them with sauteed shredded brussel sprouts and coconut oil.
Late afternoon snack was a not-so-pretty snack. Sorry about that. Very random too I know. It was one egg and some coconut oil. I enjoyed this little snack as I just felt like an egg and oil (and trying again to increase overall calories and protein/fat for my day).
Jax my trouble maker buddy. Don’t let that cute little face fool you 😉
I worked and studied all afternoon while my partner in crime took a nap.
*please excuse the wood/stick pieces all over the floor–told you Jax is a little trouble maker
Dinner was lightly seared tuna steak with cauliflower and sautéed greens all topped with olive oil. And ended up adding some black lava sea salt.
Before bed I enjoyed more marshmallows and made up a gelatin-water mix with some l-glutamine and added in a little coconut oil. Random I know, but it works.
I enjoyed my day with no issues really! No headaches or nausea feelings!! I had a good bowel movement in the morning. I had no gas or bloating, just pure energy and was able to really focus to get things done! Each meal I was completely satisfied while eating it and full for several hours! My face is still doing really well, no issues to report. My back is still causing me issues. There are days when I feel it is getting better but then moments when I feel it is the exact same or worse. So I am going to stop have ghee and see if that helps my back clear up more.
Michelle’s Thursday recap:
Breakfast was a simple juice with my usual egg, green, ghee scramble but this time I added some grass-fed beef.
Lunch was beef liver meatballs and cooked broccoli slaw and coconut oil. Loved this lunch! I even enjoyed it outside to get some fresh air! I was scared how I would like them, but was completely SOLD! Lori and I quickly text one another saying “OMG, these are amazing!” We are both happy to report our simple meatball recipe came out.
We look forward in enjoying more organ meats…as we have read they can help your health!! If interested in organ meats and the health benefits you will find lots of articles when you google it 😉 So we shall see how we do!
Afternoon snack: one egg and 1 tbsp coconut oil. Weird, yep! Good, yep! But as Lori mentioned we are both making sure we are getting enough food to fuel us! So finding ways to sneak in more food has been interesting for sure.
Dinner was leftover baked salmon and veggies with olive oil.
Michelle’s recap – Started my day with morning supplements and enjoyed sugar-free marshmallows. Drank 8 cups water. I had one cup peppermint tea in the afternoon. I did have two bowel movements! Both in the morning. Overall, I felt fine. I have been under a lot of stress due to work projects, so think some of my headaches have been due to staring at a computer screen for hours and not moving. But that is life sometimes 😉 I did take my pre-dinner supplements and enjoyed more marshmallows before bed. Took magnesium pills too.
We do not have much else to report besides what we are feeling like –> when do we get to bring more foods back, when do we really know our gut is better…you know just more “I sure hope this is working” thoughts.
Have a great Friday evening everyone!
Twins Question: Would love to hear your experiences with organ meats – good and bad! Tell us something strange or crazy that has happened to you lately? Today Michelle went to the store to grab a few things and forgot her wallet!! haha
