29 July 2013

I couldn't believe how many inches I lost this week just going dairy free and grain free. (2" from my waist, 3" from my belly and 3" from my hips!! Oh, yea, and 1/2" from each of my thighs!) That is so encouraging. I have never done this without cutting sugar completely. I don't eat candy but I do eat some fruit and my almond milk has some sugar in it. I reduce it for sure but since I can't have splenda, I just do what I can.

I feel great and I'm not feeling hungry all the time any more. It really matters WHAT you eat. You just have to find the right combination for you. Only time will tell if this is my solution, but so far so good. I have more energy and I haven't had to take my allergy meds.

I have been making blended vegetable soup for my 7mo old. I put baby rice cereal and blended turkey in it for my baby and cream of rice, turkey and a bit of parmesan for my 3YO. They both love it. I am making more today. I put green onion tops because they are easier to digest than yellow or red onions. I put chard, carrots, celery, zucchini, green beans and a clove of garlic. After it cooks for 30 minutes I let it cool, then I process it in the food processor. I was using the blender but sometimes the green bean fibers don't get processed out enough. I then put it through a wide strainer to get out the bigger strings of celery or green beans. I freeze some in ice cube trays, but we have been going through it in a hurry. It is a great way to get their vegetables in. My mom taught me to do this, she is Italian. I am so grateful for her teaching me how to cook. I actually like the soup just plain, myself. It is so flavorful!

I made paleo "corn" dogs last night, as well as gluten-free ones for the others in the family. We have movie night once a week and I like to cook something fun that's not too messy. My husband tried both and he said they were yummy. I wasn't a huge fan of the paleo ones made with sweet potato. I think I'm going to try to find another recipe. I ate a lot of fresh vegetables with them. They weren't bad. I might try again with the oil at a lower temp. The ones that were cooked right on the outside were kind of moist on the inside so I'm not sure if they were fully cooked. The ones that were cooked on the inside were slightly overcooked on the outside.

This morning I made paleo waffles. The base was eggs, almond butter, mashed banana and pureed apple (I used unsweetened apple sauce). My husband and I enjoyed them. I think I am still detoxing a bit, but feeling better.

My pants were loose today. They have been tight-ish since I bought them. I went shopping at a second hand store a few months after my baby was born and had to get some sizes I have never worn before in my life. My mom came by today and I haven't seen her since Saturday. She said she could tell I am less bloated. She was surprised.

I didn't even cut sugar because I'm eating fruit and there is some sugar in my almond milk. I just cut grains and dairy which I am sure I am sensitive to. My bloat is going away, which means my inflammation is going away. I am happy to be seeing results in the waistline already. I often lose bloat and not even move the scale so I'm not sure if I should weigh in at all just yet or just measure.

I feel great and I had lots of energy today despite waking up with a headache. It was either detoxing or leftover stress from last night. My IN-laws came into town last night to take us to dinner and my SIL and her kids were there. I get along with my IN-laws just fine, for the record, but my SIL's kids stress me out. Plus they were short on sleep and we got to dinner way too late for the kids. My daughter who is usually great at restaurants was all hyper because of being around her cousins. My baby had not wanted to take his afternoon nap so he was screaming at the restaurant. Luckily it was very loud in there so I'm not sure if anyone noticed besides the people right behind us. My husband and I took turns rocking him but he didn't want to nurse nor eat his food. So I was tense. I may have clenched my jaw all night.

Some peppermint essential oil held it off for a bit this morning. I rubbed a drop into my temples and above my eyes on my forehead. It worked for about 4 hours. But then I had an early appointment and getting the kids out the door I forgot my coffee. By the time I got home my headache was back with a bang. I finally got coffee but by then it was too late and I was getting nauseous with my headache so it was headed towards migraine status. I took some tylenol with my coffee and used more peppermint, this time on the back of my neck too. It took some time but it finally all went away. Thank goodness.

Today I found a place that has Kombucha on tap. I was able to fill my growler finally. The lady I used to get it from wasn't at the farmers market any more. It really helps with reducing my cravings. It is probiotic and energizing too.
