I'm trying to figure out way to show my weight over on the left. Finally edited it to the official WI numbers. Of course home scale numbers are about 3 pounds less so in my heart, I believe that I weighed only 162 this morning. WI yesterday was 165. Either way.. it is dance of joy time.
Congrats!!

Good morning all. I made a rookie mistake this AM..tried mixing my cappuccino drink mix with my hot coffee. It did not dissolve at all and tasted super gritty..had to toss it. Tried adding ice and shaking it..no luck. Won't be trying that again!

I use "Get It Going" tea. You can buy it at Whole Foods or on Amazon. It tastes great and doesn't contain caffeine.

I am having a bit of trouble staying asleep since I started IP. I generally stay asleep the entire 6-8 hours I'm in bed. Now I fall asleep quickly and wake up 3-4 times for no real reason. I think my brain is having troubles powering down. I'm not sure if this is good or bad!

I find that I have that problem ANY time I use the cappuccino mix. I think it overall has a texture issue. I can't even do the ready made ones.

Really? I havent had an issue with making it cold, and I like the ready made ones, but definitely don't try it hot!

I had one last night for my snack. I mixed it in the nutribullet and added ice. It was smooth and frothy like a coffee flavored milkshake. I thought about adding coffee for future breakfast drinks. Maybe it needs more power than the shaker can provide?

I have switched over to using mostly ready made drinks. I mentioned it to my coach and she said she doesn't have a problem with the grittiness but doesn't use very cold water to make it. I love the convenience of the ready made drinks though.

My only complaint with the ready made drinks, at least at my clinic, is they only come in packs of 6 so there's not enough to get me through the week.

Senna Tea. It wrecks havoc on my stomach. Myralax gets the job done without leaving me doubled over in pain. If you are using the senna tea for the first time, I would recommend that you use it at a time when you don't have a lot to get done in the hours that follow....

I put mine in the Magic Bullet with water and mix it up, then pour it in a large coffee cup and add coffee and heat for about 1 minute in the microwave - works great and no gritty taste.

So my God-Mother sent me some seasonings to try out and I fell in LOVE with one called Sumac. I can't find it anywhere in town and thought about ordering from Amazon. Don't know if any of yall have tried it but it's been great on any meat I cook! I throw it in salads as well. My dad is currently in Dubai for work and just messaged me saying he bought me JARS! SO EXCITED! Hopefully it makes it all the way back. Last night I turned my potato puree into a flat bread and tossed some sumac on top. SO GOOD! It's got a citrus type flavor. If you can find it, try it!!
