Bouari Diet – The First REAL Day!

Wow, I feel like we have bounced all over the place with this Bouari diet. I started it. Then there was a stomach bug that swept through our entire family, so I stopped taking anything but ginger ale and soup.

Then I started back but had to do the two days of binging over again. Okay, so maybe I didn’t have to, but we were in Waco with my in-laws and there was lots of tasty, fattening food and drinks. So I did.

That made today, my first “REAL” day of dieting. Low, low calories – I had a few strawberries and a small dollop of plain yogurt for breakfast. Lunch was a salad, probably bigger than it should have been, but it was a salad! And dinner was tuna fish eaten with celery and carrots instead of bread.

Along with the Bouari supplement and the B12 drops, I also took two appetite suppressants that came as part of this repertoire. It worked pretty well, but now after dinner I’m definitely battling some cravings. Hungry for something sweet, but that’s likely a mental craving and not any kind of true hunger.

I’m through a couple of the things I feared already. The supplement spray isn’t bad at all, almost kind of numbs the area under the tongue when I spray it. The B12 drops are NOT tasty, but I just try to take them right after the spray and that helps a lot. It doesn’t seem to bother my stomach or have any strange side effects.

I’m not as hungry as I was afraid I’d be. The supplement is supposed to target the stores of fat we keep in typical places like our middle. And as strange as this is, I feel like the “padding” around my belly is already different. Can’t really quantify that, but I’ll keep you updated.

Honestly, I’m actually looking forward to taking my spray tonight to counter the cravings and hunger. It’ll be quite interesting to see what happens over the next two weeks!

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
