Perfect microwave sandwich muffin

I made this recipe for the 21 day sugar detox.   Some may argue that the microwave isn't a great platform for a paleo recipe.   Butttttt, if you are in a tight spot,  worked a long day and are just ready to give up when something like this helps keep you on track it's win win for me.  I feel in love with this because it's not like a biscuit it's actually spongy and a great little muffin to put a burger on,  or my daughter gobbled up tuna salad on them and they hold together very nicely.

1 egg
1 tbsp coconut flour (I get mine at bjs)
1 tbsp ground flax meal/flour (I also picked this up at bjs they have organic and it's Delish)
Quarter teaspoon baking soda
Half a teaspoon apple cider vinegar (I used braggs)
Dash of seasoning (i usually use flavorgod garlic)
1 tbsp coconut oil

Now in a small microwave container (I use a small 2.5" square) mix all the ingredients with a fork EXCEPT THE COCONUT OIL.   Mix them all until mixed well and it looks like batter then and the coconut oil and mix well again as fast as you can to try to prevent the oil from getting hard from the cold egg.
Then I microwave on high for 1 minute 30 seconds, flip it out of the container and slice down the middle.

Its been a while. Tomorrow morning I'm starting a self challenge

So its been a while since I have posted anything on my blog.  
Let me fill you in a little, I have been diagnosed with Hashimotos (an autoimmune thyroid disorder)  
This is good and bad at the same time.  Its great because now I have a reason why some times I feel horrible, I gain tons of weight overnight, mood swings, low energy, feeling like poop etc, not to mention I just can't lose weight.  While the doctor doesn't think I'm far gone enough to "treat", I'm treating myself.  So here I am, almost 35 (61 days as of mothers day 2015).  I have decided to start a 60 day challenge starting tomorrow (5/11/2015)
I'm going to be eating very clean (I am going to try to lose 20lbs) 
I'm going to take 10,000 steps a day with my fitbit (feel free to add me queenbaconnyc@gmail.com)
and I plan on exercising at least 6 days a week.
I want to tone up, lose weight, and really just get healthy.  
I have been feeling a lot better lately and I am going to blog about all about my 60 day journey.  
Feel free to follow my on instagram also (queenbacon)
Anyone have any hints or fitness tips for someone who can't even do a push up?
I am deff trying to build up my arm muscles, and tighten my saddle bags, so if you have any input please feel free to comment!  

Love you all!

Egg fast? Sureeeee why not?

So here I am, a few days post sugar detox, feeling bloated, fat, lazy, etc.  7lbs gained and I am starting to realize that carbs do matter for me.  I try to pretend that some day I'm going to be able to run 3 miles and eat rice, but I'm pretty sure that is not going to happen.
A few of my friends do these egg fasts for a couple of days and lose some weight so I'm going to try for myself.
Eggs paired with fat or cheese for a couple of days sounds so much better to get into deep ketosis then eating bricks of cream cheese.
I shall keep everyone updated on how it's going...

Oops, epic fail.

This is just a short post about being careful, and to always read labels.

Last Friday I was at the store and picked up some digestive enzymes.  I was excited, pretty hyped.  With in 48 hours of taking them I was having horrible stomach pain, actual pain not like poop or vomit, and constant headache.  I was like this for 2 days and I said to my husband, hey read that label of the enzymes in a text because I was at work, and he was home.  He answered me and told me this is an epic fail.  What did he MEAN?!?!  He soon after texted me a picture of the label that reads: "contains milk, soy, and wheat" he was very happy he didn't buy this item for me because I would have screamed at him for not reading the label. 
In short,  ALWAYS READ YOUR LABELS!  I'm getting better, but great way to set back my 21 day sugar detox results.

Updates, excuses, and anxiety

This holiday season is done.   Thank you god.  I will not soon forget the holiday season of 2014, and not all for good reasons either.
This holiday season I was overtaken by anxiety, the stress of bills,  work,  bills, work, and horrible eating habits and alcohol over the holidays left me with just about crippling anxiety.  For years when i was younger I suffered with depression that was pushed beyond what it should have been by hormonal birth control.  Well the anxiety I was suffering made that look like a walk in the park.  I have noticed eating gluten, and alcohol made it unbearable.  On a whim, I purchased HYLANDS NERVE TONIC, this has moved mountains for me.  This has definitely earned a spot in my purse forever.  Not to mention that it starts working with in a half hour.  Buy some,  believe me you will be thanking me when you wake up at 3am, heart racing, mind racing,  stomach in a knot while you think "crap, i forgot to buy toilet paper".
Now my weight has ballooned, and I have become very inactive over the holidays.  This is changing, while I'm on my 6th sugar detox.  I'm planning on working out,  getting my 10k steps a day with my fitbit, being more active,  and eating healthy.
Please join me,  let me know what you would like me to post more about, and l let's work on improving ourselves together!
