self loathing is setting in today

One word to describe myself ... loser! Here I sit, wearing a royal blue one piece called a "forever lazy" ( tear in my eye ) gilt ridden over last nights over indulgence. Pizza ... chocolate hazelnut dessert. It was so good and I hate myself for eating it! Problem is ... I'll do it again today! I will obsess over eating only veggies or no wheat ... then I will somehow forget all the self loathing that comes after the binge ... and I will literally eat something crappy all over again! I want to sit here and say that I need to break free of these chains that hold me down ... but I can't say that. Out of fear of ever going back to that sad fat little girl with frizz hair and braces. I mean in theory life would be better if I would just let go and enjoy myself. But then I try on clothes in a poor lit dressing room and am reminded that I have the craziest body of all time!!!!!!!!!!! So I guess for now I just keep with this pathetic cycle day in and day out and hope that I can stop the hand that feeds this mouth! Help! I can hear the boys calling me bubble but like it was yesterday! don't let me go back!!!!!

Taryn sitting like a limp biscuit in front of the fire! Im sure we have a thousand other fun things that happened! I love you guys! P.s. Im just so glad Jimmy ended up not being a killer!

Protein pancakes

After doing two 21 day cleanses, and reintroducing wheat into my diet, I now am coming to terms with the fact that I can not eat wheat. Its been really hard for me, because I love everything wheat ... I am an addict. My sweet little monsters ask for french toast every day  and I want it so bad! I always eat the left overs and I suffer greatly. My hands ache and my feet ache, my anxiety peaks and my patience is shortened. You see wheat effect the brain in a way no other food does or can. It is processed like an opiate and that is why people become addicted, such as myself! So I found these protein pancakes that saved me from eating my kids french toast today and I am so so satisfied! Here is the recipe!

1.5 tbsp gluten free flour
1.5 tbsp coconut flour
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of baking soda
1 tbsp banana
1 tsp vanilla extract
pack of stevia
whites from 1 egg
1/8 plus 1 table spoon unsweetened vanilla almond milk ( i added more)

cook like you would a regular pancake, I used coconut oil.

The creamy toping is greek yogurt a shot of vanilla, pack of stevia and some maple,
I am going to be making some different toppings though.

Seriously crazy good!!!

Avocado dressing

 Avocado Dressing

- 1 Avocado, peeled and chopped
3/4 cup olive oil
1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt
Pinch of freshly ground pepper

Combine all ingredients in a blender of food processor, mixing until smooth. Serve chilled.

  << this dressing is so rich and creamy ... it's Amazing!! >>
<< The result of eating fresh fruits and veggies for every meal! a mess! >>

I am on day 10 of my cleanse and have lost 4 pounds, I feel pretty low on energy the past couple of day, but I have been working out a lot. Tomorrow I have the option of adding chicken or fish which will give me a little more energy I think. 

Until next time!

Standard Process Cleanse

Standard Process Cleanse.
   I am on day 3 of this cleanse. It's not nearly as bad as I remember it being my first time around. On day one I had a pretty good head ache but only for a few hours. Yesterday my intestines were a little bit achey, but today I feel pretty good so far.
   This cleanse is designed to clean all the toxins from your body. Cleaning your kidney, liver, large and small intestine, by taking 9 fiber pills, 21 cleanse pills and two smoothies each day. I can eat as many fruits and veggies as I want and some lentils or brown rice and some oils and seasonings are ok. 
   After day 3 it is smooth sailing, I remember having more energy then ever! 

<< This soup was amazing, Its from Gweneth Paltrows "It's all good"- Broccoli arugula soup >>

<< Lentil and veggie soup>>

<< SP smoothie, strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, mango, spinach, flax oil and SP whey powder >>

Sun worshiping

We have declared ourselves a family that loves to be in the heat of the sun!
Sun worshipers!
Sometimes you just need to spend a little to much money at the local water slides, and forget all your worries! Today was a good day, and that's all we could ask for!
