Feeling a little nutty

Had a real craving for some peanut butter so I mad myself some peanut butter it’s so easy.

Just put your nuts in the oven for 10 mins the. Whizz in a food processor for 15 mins then your done.

You can add some flavouring sometimes I add in some vanilla or salted caramel essence.

I used almonds, some walnuts and peanuts. I roughly chopped some nuts to add some texture as I love chunky peanut butter. Sometimes it can be a bit dry if it is the. Add a bit of coconut oil.

So I put it to the taste test this is what my expert said.

30 day results

So I’ve been doing a nutrition and cleanse system for 30 days now and never did I think I would feel like I do now.

I was very sceptical at the start like most people can this system really do what it promises???? All I can do is tell you how it has made me feel. I suffer from depression take antidepressants everyday to little effect, while they worked at the start they no longer give me that mental clarity while relieving the worst of the symptoms.

This nutritional system has helped give me not only lots of energy it has given me mental clarity back lifting that dark cloud of mental exhaustion that normally hangs over me everyday.

So not only has this given me more energy and clarity, it has helped me build lean muscles, lose weight, healthy flow, loads of confidence and I’m never hungry.

These are my before pics my skin was red, I was bloated, cellulite, no energy and more fat than I realised…

30 days later I have lost 3 inches off my waist, no more bloating, abs have come through toning up, I’ve lost an inch off thighs toning up building muscle and arms toned up and lost 4 lbs in 30 days.

Can’t believe the results I have in just 30 days can’t wait to see how I look and feel after the 90 days challenge.

Feeling amazing

So I’ve got my energy feeling really healthy so what else do I need.

Always wanted long lush hair but my hair is quite fine and have thought about hair extensions but the expense and maintenance and have seen many horror stories about hair falling out and now growing destroying your hair.

So I came across this new product

Pump haircare all the way from Australia they seem to just get everything right. This is supposed to make your hair grow quickly and a lot thicker so keep watching for my results.

Long lush hair here we come

#pumphaircare #longhair #lushhair

Energised

So I am nearly 30 days into my isabody challenge and while I was very sceptical as have most people I have spoken to about Isagenix you have to try it to believe it. I took this system of health products to help me to tone up, eat more healthily and most of all to increase my energy never did I think it would lift my depression.

Anyone with depression knows that you are mentally exhausted all the time and this takes its toll on your appetite either over or under eating. You have this heavy cloud hanging over your head like your carrying a weight on your head pushing your eyes down so you constantly feel tired then then makes you physically tired and find it hard to cope with daily tasks like getting up, going to work, doing housework, looking after kids or going out the ritual of getting dressed up which I used to love just became too much hard work.

After 14 days the cloud lifted my eyes felt full of life, my body full of life and mental clarity like I have never known. I feel like the person I have been searching for all these years and was beginning to think she didn’t exist. That confident happy woman who could do anything, deal with anything, multitask and run her own business. Now I feel like I can do that.

I have been running usually only get out once a week when I get a few hours of freedom I. Between I do a 25 min workout everyday including squats, kettlebells and other deep stretching exercises.

I will start sharing my exercises and meal plans when I finish my personal training course and finish my isabody challenge in August.

It is so easy to tone the arms up quickly and helps a lot with my pole, hoop and silks to have that extra upper body strength. And when you’re a single mother you often have to do the heavy lifting round the house so always come in handy.

So what can I say I’m enjoying life so much more, less anxiety, more confidence and enjoy my meals so much more.

Ingredients:

2 tbsp veg oil or olive oil

I med red onion, diced

4 garlic cloves minced

240ml veg broth

1 tbsp lemon juice

4 tbsp tomato purΓ©e

Pinch of salt

1 can of coconut milk or half a tub of Greek yogurt

Basmati rice and quinoa (one cup with 2 cups water for perfect rice)

Serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt and some pumpkin seeds for some crunch

1. In a big pan add the oil heat the oil, at the onions, garlic and ginger stir for 3 mins.

It is so so good never buy jars of curry so easy to make and none of the sugar, salt and fat of the preserved sauces we will like to buy.

Mental cloud has finally lifted

So I am now on day 19 of the isabody isagenix challenge.

How do I feel? I have never been into shakes diets etc I believe in healthy eating and I do eat healthily but I also fill my body with antidepressants and other supplements to try and boost my energy and mood. That’s why I exercise everyday to help boost my mood and energy but even though I eat healthily I would wake up knackered everyday and exercise with no energy. I would then crave sugar and would end up picking on things and binging on chocolate to give me energy only to then feel guilty and no extra energy just extra weight.

Food combining for weight loss

Here’s some f rest combos for shedding the fat faster.

Most of the time we combine foods for the variety of tastes, but if you do it correctly it can help you lose excess fat. Combining certain foods will give you more energy, enhance your digestion and help to boost your metabolism to burn fat.

πŸƒ Oatmeal and berries:

Oats is one of the best stomach filling foods there is. Berries are packed with the chemicals called polyphenols that will help in weight loss and can actually stop the build up of fat. By adding this combo to your weekly food plan, it will help you lose weight fast.

πŸƒ Yogurt + Cinnamon:

If you’re struggling with belly fat then it’s time to add a daily dose of vitamin-D fortified yogurt.

Studies have shown that diets that are rich in both calcium and vitamin C can significantly decrease the amount of unwanted fat your body stores and absorbs. But why should I add cinnamon? Well, because cinnamon is one of the most potent antioxidants that can help to improve your body’s composition and insulin sensitivity. In other words, it can help you ward off the build-up of stomach fat.

πŸƒ Hard-boiled eggs + Leafy Greens:

We know the weight loss benefits of fresh veggies and leafy greens. But many studies suggest that eggs are one of the most efficient fat burning foods. Eggs can help with the absorption of carotenoids, which are the pigments that give vegetables their color. They also helps with fighting weight gain and can protect you from vision loss, improve skin and nails, build muscle to burn fat and many other benefits.

πŸƒ Tuna + Ginger:

This food combo might seem unlikely but together they pack a powerful punch! Ginger helps to speed up metabolic process and blocks enzymes that promote inflammation.Tuna contains a type of omega-3 that helps to prevent the storage of fat in your abdominal region. That’s the reason why it’s a perfect combo if you want to help get rid of unwanted fat.

πŸƒ Spinach + Coconut oil:

Spinach is a leafy green known for promoting a healthy diet and helping to decrease body fat. Coconut oil has tons of health benefits; one of the main ones being weight loss. When you drizzle coconut oil on a handful of spinach, you will create a very powerful metabolic booster.

πŸƒ Cayenne pepper + Chicken:

If you want to turn up the metabolic heat to help burn fat, try sprinkling some cayenne pepper on baked skinless chicken breast. This will help fill you up for a longer time-frame and increase your calorie burn by as much as 35%. A study done at Purdue University, revealed that adding small quantities of cayenne pepper to your diet daily will help to curb appetite and boost metabolism which leads to weight loss.

πŸƒ Coffee + Cinnamon:

Coffee in moderation helps to decrease appetite, but it is even more effective when you combine it with the fat burning thermogenic effects of cinnamon. Cinnamon is also very rich in antioxidants that can help to reduce belly fat.

πŸ‘‰πŸ» Food combination rules to follow:

Combine spicy food with protein. By doing this you’re guaranteeing that your calorie burn will increase throughout the day. Not only does protein have staying power, meaning it will keep your stomach full for a longer period, but it can also help burn more fat.

πŸ‘‰πŸ» Combine healthy fats with carbohydrate-rich foods. The truth is we digest carbohydrates very fast, therefore, they won’t keep you full very long.

They give us the energy and fuel we need for our regular day to day and for workouts. But when you add healthy fats, they digest more slowly which means that you feel fuller much longer and will help to curb your cravings. Good examples of healthy fats include olive oil, coconut oil and avocado.

πŸ‘‰πŸ» Combine water with high-fiber foods. Have you ever tried to eat dry oats without water? It would like all the water from your mouth and throat just evaporated! That’s because foods high in fiber needs plenty of water to properly digest. When you eat the fiber-rich foods they stay in your digestive track much longer, which means they help to reduce food cravings. So whenever you’re snacking on some dry whole grain food, make sure that you do so with a tall glass of water.

Day 1 of the ISAGENIX challenge

Fed up with always being tired, waking up in the morning knackered feeling like I’ve had no sleep, look in the morning looking wrecked with black eyes. I do my workout hardly enough energy to get through it and my energy doesn’t increase even when I fill myself full of fruit, yogurt, Low GI carbs, lots of veg, grains, cheese, lean protein and lots of water but still no energy, feeling tired πŸ’€ driving to work, in work and on way home. Just tired, tired, tired all the time and always sick flu, colds, coughs.

If this is you then join the club, you live with it fill yourself full of pills every morning from vitamin D to antidepressants and still feel no different.

So when someone told me their story and I saw how full of energy she was, she inspired me and I saw what a difference #isagenix had made to her life and I thought sure what have I to lose so I decided to sign up to the #isagenix challenge. Today was my first day after I received my box yesterday.

https://moodycowmum.files.wordpress.com/2018/04/img_7957.mov

So I did a live video to open my box and go through the products and the programme check out the link below

https://www.facebook.com/moodycowmum/videos/10204337757721087/

These are the products

For my breakfast I had a shake, tablet and a drink

https://moodycowmum.files.wordpress.com/2018/04/img_7989-1.mov

Mid morning snack was an apple and a wafer snack

Finally I got myself sorted and got my makeup and hair done, it’s amazing what a difference that makes. Next thing I knew it was lunch so time for another shake I tried the vanilla this time, another supplement and of course some water.

Afternoon I was getting a bit hungry but it was time for what I had been waiting for an Isadelight chocolate salted caramel and it was delicious πŸ˜‹ Loved it also had an orange hydrate drink and then an eshot caffeine shot to give me that last hot before tea. Summer is here trying out my new dress from @mango.com

 

As the weather was lovely we headed for a paddle at the beach and then the park for lots of serotonin and endorphins from the fresh air, the sand between our toes and the sun on our skin and the exercise at the park.

 

Finally it was time for tea and I couldn’t wait really hungry for food. Tea can be whatever you want but if course healthy and under 600 cals so I had a lovely salad with rocket, avacadoes, onions, peppers, mozzarella cheese, sunblushed tomatoes, tomatoes and cucumber so lots of good fats and some protein and then Some falafel which I love it’s so moorish, spicy a bit and very filling as well and low in fat and high in protein as it’s made from chickpeas.

 

So that’s it for day 1 just some water and an isamove supplement that is supposed to promote an amazing nights sleep, so some fizzy water with lemon, snuggle on the sofa and watch a film.

 

Hopefully this is the start of an unbelievable journey that will not only change my life but my kids and many others.

 

Stay tuned to see how the benefits stack up and the amazing results I will experience fingers crossed
