Yesterday our morning workout was from the Tone it Up girls – we did their Easter bunny workout. Loved it.
After the workout it was green juice time. We ended up putting a little too much fresh ginger in the juice so it definitely had a kick to it.
Later it was time for some eggs, arugula, and sweet potatoes. Along with some coconut oil.
We ended up doing a second workout yesterday – as we filmed our new purely fit life workout for this coming Monday. For this post-workout meal we made up a egg perfect fit protein large pancake topped with half banana, bee pollen and a few cashews. And came back later to eat another egg with some broccoli and coconut oil. Weird but yummy.
Dinner was some grilled salmon, steamed cauliflower, sautéed swiss chard, sardine, sauerkraut, spiralized yellow squash and half avocado.
Both of us got extremely full and got the bloated belly after dinner. It has been a really long time since we have had that happen to us. We have a few different ideas of why this may have happened. Maybe it was too many different things to eat at one meal. Or from the increase in magnesium we are taking. Or from too many veggies (in terms of the fiber).
We have been doing a lot of research lately on fiber and veggies in terms of helping and hurting constipation. We will discuss that further in another post soon, as we are just now going to play around with different things.
And we are still trying to figure out our carbs. How much carbs can our bodies handle?
All last week we both ate more ‘carbs’ in forms of either sweet potatoes or bananas. And yesterday we ate both a banana and sweet potato in one day. Michelle’s skin is still doing well, but still struggling with itchy skin on her legs. My (Lori)skin is not doing so well. I got a few new big pimples on my chin and one on my left cheek. Plus my back acne is still the same (sometimes I feel it is getting worse as it has been like this for months now, so embarrassing).
Now these new breakouts for me could be from the addition of carbs (and sugar from the sweet potatoes/bananas). Maybe my body is just adjusting to the change and eventually it will all settle out. Again only time will tell. Michelle and I both still plan on keeping some form of ‘starchy’ carb in our diet but just figuring out how much can our bodies handle. Remember everyone’s body is different so everyone’s level of ability to handle carbs will vary.
We just wanted to share that we are still having some health issues that we are trying to get to the bottom of. We are staying positive about it all and know that over time we will figure out our bodies. As change does take time 🙂
Twins question: Do you do high or low carb days? Or do you feel you keep your carb intake pretty much the same everyday? What is your favorite carb?
till next time,
