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.

Fun weekends!

Last weekend our church went on a trip and experienced some pretty stellar sights! We traveled to Kentucky for the 2nd time to visit the Creation Museum
It is just so amazing!! 

When we visited in May of 2014 my girls were so much smaller!  (Elena on the left was almost 7)
(Here is Allee with my father in law. She was about 1 and 1/2 yrs old)
Here we are in 2004
Here we are this weekend!
They also hadn't started construction on their new exhibit The Ark Encounter. It opened last year and we finally got to see it! WOWZA! It was incredible!
The BEST part was that my father in law always flies up to WV to be with us on these trips! Here are a few pictures of our trip! I posted a ton of Snaps too. Too bad they don't last longer than 24 hours. 
We took 38 people from our church!
I was in the fun bus. These were the most active and excited little girls. 
Allee stayed with her grandpa the WHOLE trip. They were two peas in a pod.

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…

Week 11 Day 1

This morning I woke up after having Allee keep me up for almost 2 hours during the night. Needless to say I was completely exhausted this morning.

I lacked motivation to get to the gym. Instead of leaving with my gym clothes on to take Elena to school I just drove her in my PJs. Yep. Was totally too lazy to even get dressed.

I finally did come back home and got dressed, but honestly, what was I thinking?! Allee was awake which meant I didn't leave until 9:00 a.m.

Fail.
Its ok, I wound up having a great workout anyway. My video from after it is below.
