Happy accident

This week has been another crazy one for me.  In addition to some additional new responsibilities I've recently taken on, I added two sick dogs to the equation.  My dogs both got sick with different things and both of them needed some pretty intensive care.  And, with that came a lot of extra cleaning up.  So, it has been a busy and stressful week.  To top that off I've personally been feeling awful all week.  Mostly, I've been feeling depressed and very low energy.

Lack of energy has been a problem for me all of my life.  I struggle most days to push myself to get things done.  Both my parents have thyroid issues and I have all of the symptoms but my test results say I am fine.  I wish I could figure out why I feel so tired but what can you do?  Well that is, until yesterday.

I found this in the grocery store.  I was excited because I am suppose to drink Kefir since it contains all sorts of good probiotics.   I haven't been able to due to my milk allergy.  Since this brand "So Delicious" is made from coconut milk it is gluten and milk free.  I had some yesterday and within a half hour my energy levels started coming back.  Today, after having some for breakfast, I was able to clean my entire house and get the laundry done (and run out to get my husband lunch-lol).

As some of you may know, coconut oil is the new super food.  I've taken it in the past with wonderful results.  I had forgotten how good it makes me feel.  Part of this weight loss journey is as much about finding out what makes me feel healthy as it is to get the weight off.  Now I know I have to make coconut oil part of my daily routine.  I really hope that you will consider giving it a try.  It can do some amazing things!!  Here is a link to a page that can give you more information.
