It’s day 2 of the Body Flush, and I’m feeling like a champ! The difference has been outrages. My digestive system is very happy with me:) it’s a rainy day today in LA., so we’ll see if I am able to go running tonight. I am definitely not missing ZUMBA though. I’m off from work a bit early today! Yipppeeeeeeee
Today’s morning start:
2 cleanse pills on an empty stomach.
1 shot espresso with frothed almond milk.
1 scoop fiber blend with 8 oz water
8 oz green protein smoothie:
1 scoop protein
1/2 tsp vanilla bean
1 tbsp hemp seeds
Life changed when I found hemp seeds!
Here are some helpful facts that you may not have known about hemp seeds.
I love sharing nutritional info! Lol
* All 20 amino acids, including the 9 essential amino acids (EAAs) our bodies cannot produce.
* A high protein percentage of the simple proteins that strengthen immunity and fend off toxins.
* Eating hemp seeds in any form could aid, if not heal, people suffering from immune deficiency diseases. This conclusion is supported by the fact that hemp seed has been used to treat nutritional deficiencies brought on by tuberculosis, a severe nutrition blocking disease that causes the body to waste away.
* Nature’s highest botanical source of essential fatty acid, with more essential fatty acid than flax or any other nut or seed oil.
* A perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 Linoleic Acid and Omega-3 Linolenic Acid – for cardiovascular health and general strengthening of the immune system.
* A superior vegetarian source of protein considered easily digestible.
* A rich source of phytonutrients, the disease-protective element of plants with benefits protecting your immunity, bloodstream, tissues, cells, skin, organs and mitochondria.
* The richest known source of polyunsaturated essential fatty acids.
A I read my daily dose of morning bloglovin, I came across this little hot cake from purelytwins. I immediately grabbed a ramekin and whipped one up in 3 minutes.
When you cleanse, you crave stuff like this. This was PERFECT this morning. I can totally have these in the a.m. during my cleanse.
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp coconut flour
2 tbsp carob powder or unsweetened cacao powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 tbsp water
15 drops stevia
1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste/extract
Mix all dry ingredients in ramekin, add water, stevia, and vanilla bean. Mix very well, It’ll be quite thick. You could also dab a bit of coconut oil on top. Microwave for 60 seconds, and you’ve got your very own HEALTHY morning dose of cake without additives, sugar, or high carbs.
Before leaving for work , I roasted some brussel sprouts with a bit of coconut oil, cayenne pepper, and sea salt. I may or may not have completely over cooked these bad boys, but whatever. I little crunch won’t hurt nobooooooody!
A handful of cherries:)
Juice of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 small orange
Roasted Brussel sprouts
Baby kale with chia seed oil and liquid aminos.
Adding the squash in there helped to plump up the lunch, otherwise this wouldn’t of filled me up at all. I would’ve been hungry in 2 seconds. Pretty much the ultimate snacky plate:) the flavore all went really well together. I made enough brussel sprouts to take some to work mañana as well. I am leftover queen.
RAW trail mix.
Best snack ever! I usually munch on a string cheese or an apple, remember….NO dairy, NO sugar for 7 days, so this really was a treat. I love cacao nibs. Super high in antioxidants and dietary fiber. They kinda remind me of espresso beans. Simiiiiiilllarrrrrrrr.
I’ve got ZUMBA at 8 tonight, so I made a quick, easy, and delicious dinner an hour and 1/2 before.
I was craving some protein!
Salmon is on the plate tonight ladies.
First…. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
Make boats out of aluminum
Place a handful of spinach leaves at the bottom
Place the salmon on top.
Rub with crushed garlic
Sprinkle with salt and pepper
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
3 thin lemon slices on top
Close the boats, leaving room for salmon to steam inside, but make sure the seams are shut.
Cook for 20 minutes and 350*
I love , absolutely love cilantro, so this part is optional. Chopped cilantro makes everything better to me. Oh, and a bit of siracha is always lovely too;)
I ended up only eating 1/2 of this, which was a actually one serving. About 5 oz. ( the size of your palm). Along with a a handful of homemade curry, turmeric pumpkin seeds. That last thing I wanted was to feel full during class. Not a good idea. Ever. My stomach is in high digestion mode. Everything is going right through me. Really, It’s a blessing and a curse, if ya know what I mean.
Tonight’s class was booked. A solid hour of “shakin what yo mama gave ya!”
Sooo fun tonight, we learned a new dance! Woo-hooooo. My happiness continued when I realized I had burned 580 calories. I love seeing new faces in the crowd. Makin it happen ladies.
Oh bye…. Sandy Campy Fitness is offering new students a “CAN’T PASS UP” deal!
For new clients, she is offering 10 zumba classes for $55 dollars, and $75 for 10 buddy sculpting.
Even if you are already a Zumba student, you are still eligible for the new client rate to body sculpting, and vice versa.
580 calories thinner, me and my homie J fit decided to take a 3 mile run. We were dripping sweat I class, so we tried to bundle up as much as we could.
Feeling accomplished and whole. My insides feel fantastic!
Welp, yep, it rained on us the whole run home. Just lovely. Thank god I was warmed up.
We ran for Charity Miles ( Stand up to Cancer). Just under 3 miles. I started getting a cramp so when it was over, I wanted to pass the efffff out.
