starts today! That's right, I'm doing a short round. My HCG is already mixed and in the fridge. I'm going to change somethings up b/c I'm so active. I am increasing my protein and watching my carbs. Things you will see is my continuance of juicing and eating Ezekiel bread. I love PB & J when I am on HCG. Yes, I do still lose. I'm so excited! I just haven't figured out how to break it to my low carb people that I am adding HCG to low carb. This is an experiment of sorts.
I found two boxes of HCG, one expired in Jan of this year and one that expires in Oct. I think I'm going to go ahead and do a short round to use the one that expires next month. I just have to figure out the right protein amount so that I don't have to stop running.
So, be on the look out for new vids and post next month from my short round

You know I never post anything to buy or market any products. However, there
is a young lady who is hosting an eboutique with all of the proceeds going to
ovarian cancer research. This is very special and dear to me b/c I've have
tumors removed from my ovaries twice in addition to having other reproductive
surgeries almost yearly. It was a terrifying experience but I have been blessed
to have received positive results. However, I would like to support those who
don't have the same outcome.
Please support the cause and share the think or post with your friends. The
sale is this weekend and I apologize for posting so late. I'm just getting in
from my race.
Here is the info:

One of the most popular things people do during P2 of the HCG diet is a detox bath. For most it yields better losses. Detox baths are also good for muscle soreness if you are working out on the diet and it helps with softening your skin.
1 Cup Epsom Salt
1 Cup Sea Salt
1/2 Cup Baking Soda
As you know I am one of the people who do not follow P2 100%. If you are a rogue HCGer than this recipe is for you. It's quick easy and super simple.
2 slices Ezekiel Bread
1 pack of Splenda
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1T Extra Virgin Coconut oil 1tsp Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup (optional) The one I'm speaking of is found on the coffee isle.
Mix eggs, splenda, cinnamon, and syrup in a bowl big enough to lay bread in. Heat coconut oil in a pan. Lay both sides of Ezekiel bread in the egg mixture. Then place in heated skillet. Cook on both sides until golden brown. Serve with butter substitute and sugar free syrup.
It's official! One of the best diet aids has been taken off the market. The major supply source for HCG, alldaychemist.com, is no longer selling HCG. Those who have some stashed are holding on to and using it like it's gold. I won't do another round unless I can fully commit to it. I wonder what HCG veterans will do now that our beloved crack, HCG, is no longer for sale.
