Up and Then I'm Down - But Its a Good Thing

Notes from The My Plan:

First thing I did when I woke up was weigh myself. I was up .2. :( At first I thought it might have been the bread I ate yesterday. Silly me, thought it was wheat white bread (which I had tested non reactive) but it turns out it was whole grain white bread. But then I remembered I didn't go to the bathroom yesterday. Can you say constipated? So I'm wondering if that's the reason I'm up .2.? 

Before drinking my lemon water and dandelion tea I took a hot Epsom salt bath. Then after I went to the bathroom (I know tmi, but I need to journal everything). I weighed myself and I'm down .6 pounds. AWESOME!! I'm down and I tested another food that is non-reactive.

I would never have even thought about all of this before. I love how I'm getting to know how food and my body play together. Thank you Lyn-Genet for the "The Plan" and all your knowledge. I love reading her facebook and forum posts, Lyn-Genet and her staff are always feeding my brain, while I'm learning to feed my body with the right foods that work for me. 

For breakfast I had a Blueberry Pear Smoothie (I just love these).

1/2 cup frozen Blueberries
1/2 Pear, chopped
1/2 cup Silk Coconut Milk
1 1/2 tbsp Chia Seeds
A dash or two of Cinnamon and/or Nutmeg (I use both).

Blend until fully blended.

For lunch I had a avocado and goat cheese sandwich with sunflower seeds and mixed lettuce. This was so good.

1/4 avocado
.5 oz (about 2 Tbsp) crumbled goat cheese
sunflower seeds
2 slices of bread (I used white whole grain)

I went to a friends going-away happy hour and ate french fries (the only thing on the menu I could eat besides salad. I was not going to pay $13 for lettuce). I had tested fries before so I went for it. On the bad side, the fries were very salty. :( On the good side I also had 3 glasses of red wine. :) When I got home I was planning on eating some leftover zucchini but ended up just going to bed.

I woke up this morning with very puffy eyes and up .6 lbs. Thanks salt!

Today I'll take a break from testing and the only salt I'll be using is the Epsom salt in my bath.
