update: day 1 & 2

So I am still alive. That’s really good. Day 1 and 2 of the anti-bloat start is going really well. I’m actually impressed that I’m continuing with it. I realize now, how much I snack. It’s really awful actually. I mean every couple of hours, I had an urgency to find something to munch on!! I usually resisted. I’ve been eating almonds as a snack. That seems to suppress my snacking urge and keep me on track. 

There is a recipe for Sassy Water in this book. And when I first saw the ingredients, I thought. NO WAY! But actually, it has become my go to drink. I drink with every meal and I will fill up my 24oz water bottle 3 times in 1 day. That’s how amazing it is.

Sassy Water
1 pitcher cold water
1 medium cucumber, peeled
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1 tbsp ginger

Add all ingredients. Let sit over night to infuse flavors.

I took the ginger out of mine. I really cant stand that taste. blegh!

This morning, I started my 30 day shred. I forgot how hard it is. I really did. I thought that I could do it the whole time without stopping. HA! In my wildest dreams. Jillian gets me every time!

The best part about all this was yesterday, I was sitting on the couch and Mike comes up behind me and told me how proud he was of me and gave me a big kiss! That made everything worth it!

Oh, and since I cant not have pictures in my post. Here are some from Project 365.

016  017018 The second one cracks me up! She got tired of Daddy taking pictures of her. Yesterday, the sunshine came out!! It was a gorgeous day! We walked to the store, and soaked up the sun!

The Sassy Water sounds so yummy! I've been drinking Crystal Light for the last month and it's getting kind of blah... I've been looking for something more natural! Thanks for putting this up!

By the way, I found you through Amanda who I found through Emily... :) I think your daughter is adorable and you have been an inspiration to my creative side. I used to have one and it's slowing appearing again!

God Bless!
