The reason I chose this one as day 6 of beverage week is because Dr Oz usually has some interesting weight loss tips and I really want to try it. When I buy everything I’ll let everyone know either here or on Facebook if it really works. BUT look at all the good stuff that is inside this drink!

  • Grapefruit, loaded with vitamin C, will help your body turn fat into fuel.
  • Tangerine increases your sensitivity to insulin, stabilizes blood sugar, and stimulates genes to burn fat.
  • Cucumber helps you feel full and acts as a natural diuretic, which means less bloating and water retention.
  • Peppermint promotes better digestion and calms the stomach, plus it tastes great!

Ingredients per 8 oz serving

Water
1 slice grapefruit
1 tangerine
½ cucumber, sliced
2 peppermint leaves
Ice – as much as you like

Directions
Wash grapefruit, tangerine cucumber and peppermint leaves. Slice cucumber, grapefruit and tangerine (or peel). Combine all ingredients (fruits, vegetables, 8 oz water, and ice) into a large pitcher. Let it sit over night. The longer it sits the better it tastes.

Stir & Enjoy!

Drink at least one 8 ounce glass three times a day before each meal for 10 days straight.

Morning! My husband’s favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip. My son loves it too. I decided to choose this one because I thought they both would like it. How about you?

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup plain or vanilla yogurt of choice, or 1 cup full-fat canned coconut milk (I used Silk soy yogurt, and Wholesoy works too. I’m sure many other brands work, but I’ve only tried these pops with the two brands mentioned.)
  • 1/16 to 1/4 tsp pure peppermint extract (or more), depending on desired mint strength
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1-3 stevia packets or 1-3 tbsp sugar or liquid sweetener of choice (Sweetener amount will depend on your choice of yogurt, as well as your personal taste preferences. Remember that the pops will be less sweet once frozen.)
  • scant 1/16 tsp salt
  • optional: packed 1/2 cup spinach (20g), or food coloring as desired (The pictured pops have spinach, not food coloring. You cannot taste it at all!)
  • optional: handful of chocolate chips or mini chips

Directions:

If using spinach, blend all ingredients until completely smooth. (If not using spinach, combine all ingredients in a large bowl or pyrex measuring cup.) Pour into popsicle molds, or paper cups with spoons as the sticks. Freeze completely, then pop out and enjoy.

I have decided because I love food and I need to find some skinny alternatives that I would post recipes I found online and share them with all of you. This Week I am focusing on dessert.  I chose yogurt drops this week because I really love yogurt and so does everyone in my family. I would be surprised if they lasted beyond the end of the week.

 

 

Spoon flavored yogurt into a plastic bag.

Squeeze dots onto cookie sheet and place in freezer.

They’ll be ready in about an hour!

70 calories per pan. (if you use different yogurt than look at the calories they have in that and judge from there)

Owwy.  Did Ab intervals yesterday and lower focus today. My abs hurt. They have been hurting ever since I finished my workout today. After talking with my husband I figured I might want to stretch before doing these workouts so that I can be sure I do not hurt myself. They do stretching afterwards, but no warm-up before. Tomorrow is my rest day which I am totally looking foreword to. I really think my body needs it.

For this week challenge of eating every 3-4hrs I decided to write down the times of everytime it was time to eat what I should be eating. To make sure I stay on track I would put a check mark if I ate on time. Lucky for me that made things really easy to do.

My son is really into chicken nuggets. I have been wanting to find a healthy recipe and have not had any luck until tonight! Tomorrow I plan to buy the ingredients and share the recipe with you. Cross your fingers that it will go over well with him.

Any healthy recipes or ingredient swaps you are trying this week?


 

Day two and Day three of T focus 25 finished. Yesterday’s workout my son did with me. Today I did it while he was having his breakfast. He was a little upset that he could not “help me” and made me promise to let him workout with me tomorrow. Today’s workout was total body workout. I notice I had to do a lot of the modified version. That did not bother me since I know I will be able to better myself every single day. I am a work in progress.

This week’s challenge is for me to eat every 2-3 hours. I know what some of you think. I wonder if that girl is eating whole meals every three hours. Uh. No…. three meals a day and small snacks. I tried the tropical strawberry shakeology this morning with coconut milk and it taste a lot better. Thanks to the girls on Facebook for suggesting it to me. I will be sure to update you when I try it with the almond milk. There is also a recipe calendar with different ingredients you can put in it. I had no idea that my son robbed it and had it in his room. Little guy must of taken it whiles I was looking at the other stuff from the box.

What workout are you doing?
