Good Morning Friends,
Well as we mentioned yesterday we have some exciting news! We are doing our first GIVEAWAY!! Yep, you heard us right! Our own giveaway
But first our day started with a lovely gigantic green smoothie ‘un-pictured’ (purple kale, ginger, and bananas). This smoothie we sipped on throughout the morning, so good it really hit the spot for the both of us!
Lunch was cooked amaranth with some warming spices
Warm and delicious! It has been a very long time since we had amaranth it was a nice change.
We tried a few more of these…. before tossing the rest of them
Just wasn’t feeling those.
So we treated ourselves to some hot cocoa which we have made before. Always a crowd pleaser
Dinner was a simple avocado with some red onion and lime juice along side some of this
50 minutes of an uphill climb on the treadmill
Walked at 4.0 mph at incline which we started at 10% and ended at 13%
We love this workout because it really works the legs!
Overall our day yesterday was a good day. We even managed to un-pack everything and put everything away!
Now you will be seeing some changes in our food choices over these next few weeks. After talking to a good friend and nutritionist, Gena, she helped me pin point what I need to try next to help with my hormones. Michelle and I have stopped taking birth control about 5 months ago and ever since than we have felt ‘great’ mentally by not taking the pill but our bodies are still adjusting to it.
As many of you know I am going through a real hard time with my skin especially on my face. And Michelle and I have looked over so much information and tried just about everything we thought would help control our hormones and acne. Like reducing our nut intake, increasing our fat (through oils) intake, tried different face products, and even did more yoga. Now, I did see some improvements in my skin and me emotionally though still not close to where I would like to be.
That is when I turned to the lovely Gena to help me! I had so many questions and it was so nice to have someone actually answer my questions! And I had a lot Gena answered every single one with such grace and knowledge. After we discussed a few different things we concluded that I might have some Candida issues.
Therefore, my food options will be different due to following a Candida diet. I will explain it more as we go through it over these next 3 weeks. If anyone is looking for more guidance, want their questions answered, or are just ‘stuck’ with their dietary choices and are not happy than I highly recommend Gena’s services. My favorite thing that Gena said the other day to me was that the body wants to heal itself! That gave me the motivation and confidence that I can heal myself!!! Thanks Gena for your kind words and advice on what I should do next.
I am a big believer of fate and that sometimes certain people come into your life that teach you different things. By being in the blog world I have gotten to meet some amazing people and who all have touched my life in some way. And Gena is definitely one of those extraordinary people.
