I don't feel good!

My charity run 10k up in smoke!

Only one draw back to having lost all my fat.
FREEZING when its cold and never being warm enough even when its balmy, which its not its snowing again.

Hubby is on an errand for Knorr broth in a package, yes for me.
Pizza for everyone else, the sound of that makes me double over and hold my tummy,

I should have known that I was not on top of the game the day before when I could not stop sneezing, the virus would just be getting started good. Thank goodness pretty girl can drive since the bus came and left them all this morn.

Jer woke up mad that I hadn't taken him to school, but that throne kept me hostage and we are not talking about the one with the marriage that was going on over there in the England.

BMI being Smart, Diets and Kids, take your pick.

Did you know that you might get dumber as you get heavier yikes. What is your BMI go figure it there and see at Dr. Amens site click here.

BMI is so important that they even did that study to see what affect it has on your brain. WOW believe me I am working to get mine down even more. If you want to go right to the study that Dr. Amens linked to click here. Mine is low but it really could be lower. I wonder how low it was when I was a teen. I do recall it back 4 years ago being at 39%. My Pretty girl's is 17% and she can eat like a horse. I right now have a 24.1% but back in Oct it was 22.8% and believe me I pay attention every day to the consumption in this body. A very good BMI for me at my age and height is 20-27%.

Below this study is a link here about kids and their calorie consumption and the affects it has later in life. Some days I can just feel really defeated over this when it comes to my little guy Jer. He has the hardest time consuming things like veggies or fruit. We can get small amounts of protein like steak and chicken and breaded fish in him once in a while but wow its a constant battle when you look at the calorie consumption of my other 6 kids. Now that I have Shakeology that he just loves I feel less defeated.

HEY would you want to try my shake cause let me just tell you its AMAZING compared to all the other protein carb mixes out there on the market.

Just click up there and it will link you to that cool site that makes it so you can get some too.

Did you ever wonder how a food breaks down in the gut and what it does to get you fed from that gut? Take a look at this spot here what a really good break down of why we need to avoid certain foods for certain reasons.
Or what about what might really be a starch in a food that you hadn't thought about look at a list here
How about the science as to why a gut can get sick here.
All this info has me really thinkin about how and why HCG worked for me and what the gut does in breaking down our foods.
What do you think?

Sugar Toxic? you decide.

I often talk about my Little Guy who will eat anything that has sugar in it with the form of candy and for sure chocolate but will not touch a fresh peach or a beet or even a casserole. One of his many issues is oral aversions and texture issues that we work with daily. Let me tell you there are bribes, and conditions, and kids that are not allowed to say they do not like something here at this house all in the name of getting Jer to eat. Thats why there is an ad up there about hating veggies. We can get him to drink veggies in that amazing shake called Shakeology these days.
I also talk about the fact that when he was in the NICU just before sticking an IV or shot or sometimes even just when he was upset they gave him a taste of glucose on his tongue. Back there are two red spots that can send you to links about this practice.

Why?  Well it was supposed to act in the exact same way as Morphine would, making it so that the procedure was not has hard to handle and not create an addiction to a drug like Morphine. Today thanks to an update from the Lighter Side of Low Carb via my facebook I got a very interesting update that is lengthy but really an eye opener to how affected we can get from sugar. Maybe you should take a look and draw your own conclusions to this article.
Is Sugar Toxic click to read or watch the video its all very enlightening.

After this I get even more bugged about the amount of corn syrup and maltodextrose (ie. the one that comes from corn) in his pedisure yep gotta get him to eat real food even more now.

Working on an experiment !!!!!!!

I am trying a new angle trying to see if there is a loss of fat % created in a different way.

I will let you know in about 10 days!

Work on, workout, keep moving and eating a good breakfast. I have eaten my apple or fruit I should say in the morning when doing HCG rounds so that I trip my metabolism and keep the body saying oh it might be smaller but its still food and gas in the early morning hours (get the drift).

Have a most spectacular day spring is in the air even if here in my valley we keep getting snow pelting every dang weekend.

Water!!!!!!! and KIDS their take on it.

Now that it has been a year and I can't possibly live without my liquid fuel for the day and I even crave more then what I used to consume. Plus I like chocolate or grape or lemon or hazelnut Stevia in my water some times. We have a crazy occurance at our house, here are a few angles to view.

Kids responses to me when I say drink water!

C boy ugh a I know I know I need a water bottle but you are never given time to go pee in school!

Pretty girl Jo, "Water isn't the cure all to all things, now you have my boyfriend telling me all the time that I need to drink more water!" "A drink of anything is better then nothing so buy some pop once in awhile!"

Mom Response NO!!!!!! POP!!!!!!

Mc, "WHATEVER it is not the fix everything MOM!"

K boy, ok mom I will. "Mom this morning (at 6:00am) I drank two big cups of water and now my tummy hurts."
Me, "well its just your body getting woke up inside in a new way because it got cold all of a sudden and you never drink until after getting to school", ( he wont eat breakfast here he wants to eat at the school.) I don't think he realizes that this makes your metabolize get into gear for the day when you start feeding and gasing it with water.

Z boy, "wahhh I don't want a drink", then quick change of tune before going out the door or at times returning to get a drink and missing the bus, even on days when I told him he should get a drink first thing in the morning. I have to remind him that he needs to drink whatever it is that he is going to drink before 8:00 pm or the Mom and the bed pay a price and I already have enough laundry daily to add to the load.

Jer the little guy, asleep at 6am "Mom I need a drink from my bottle", or get me some green stuff. When he is fully awake brushing teeth he wants to suck the water out of the brush instead of drinking from a cup.

The Hubby, he thinks liquids that are diet like Dr. Pepper is a good enough substance and he would float if he tried to drink the amount that I can now drink. He can't keep a balance here at all and I win in that area.

The crazy part they are fighting over my morning SHAKEOLOGY all the time now. I guess I am going to have to share some with more then just little guy. 'The fave at our house is peanut butter and strawberry with the chocolate shakeology.
Have a super great day, gotta work my abs now.
