Bulletproof Coffee 2 Week Experiment: Day 1


 Above is the video that I recorded at about 8:45 this morning. I had a Bulletproof Coffee instead of breakfast and it hit me. I want to try something. I've known that several people have done an experiment to see how well bulletproof coffee sustains their appetite and energy levels throughout the day. I thought it would be a good idea to try this for 2 weeks myself. Every day for two weeks I'll have a bulletproof coffee instead of having breakfast. I want to see how it affects my energy level. I also want to see how it affects my appetite. You will follow me on this journey. Feel free to do so here or on Snapchat via Mariakins

Ready?

This morning I brewed some organic coffee with a tablespoon of coconut oil and 1 TB Kerrygold unsalted grass-fed butter. For the first time I ran it through my blender. It was so frothy and delicious. 
Confession: I don't do very well with black coffee so I added a tablespoon of International Delight 'sweet cream' creamer. It's my coffee vice. I have to have it.

The first 2 hours I definitely felt much more energy than usual. I found that I was also not hungry until 11:30. This is what impressed me. I'm generally running around the house, but thinking about food in the back of my head whole time. This wasn't the case. For lunch  at 12:45 I made this. 


I'm hoping this will hold me over until I can have a snack and dinner. 

The only other side effect that I noticed was that my belly is definitely a bit more rumbly & active than usual. Not sure if this is attributed to just the coffee or the fact that I've cleaned grains completely out of my diet. It's less than a week now for the 'grain free" stuff so I'm wondering if maybe my system is still going to a bit of a shock with the new eating regimen.

I'll update you again tomorrow.

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her





I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

















I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

My 1st week at my NEW JOB!!

Guys I got the job!!!
I am so excited I can't even begin to express it! I'm paying for my girls to be able to go to school and I'm contributing towards bills and it feels wonderful!! I know that as a stay-at-home mom I contributed a lot to my family dynamic, but there's something about being able to give financially towards expenses that feels amazing! 
Anyway, my first week passed and I can't tell you how great it was. The first three days I was training and would have to say that while I had what I feel like we're "training wheels" I was able to glean a lot of information from the person training me. By the fourth day she sort of did the 50/50 of letting me work by myself and assisting me. By day 5 she had gone out of town and I was working by myself! I can't tell you how awesome it felt to be able to sit at my desk and do the job that I was trained to do within 5 days AND feel like I was doing it well. It's a great feeling.

It also doesn't…

Week 15 Day 1

I can hardly believe that I have made it to 15 weeks of working out consistently. I've been eating healthy and gluten free for that long too! It's amazing to see how my body has changed and my energy level has been impacted. I am so very happy about what  diligence has done for me. I never want to go back to being inactive. 
I have been thinking about different goals. Finding myself considering how I can best  take my workouts up a notch. Never thought I would see myself be the person that would need to tweak a work out because I've gotten stronger. I have never stuck to anything long enough to see myself get to that point. It is beyond exciting.
I was in the car the other day and was daydreaming about learning something new like kickboxing or MMA. The crazy part about it is that it is totally possible for me to do something like that. I mean, I have been active long enough to where I could see it being a definite possibility. Maybe I should take a look around in my area …
