DAY TWO TRIFECTA POWER DRINK CHALLENGE
SHARON’S SUPERCHARGED SUPERFECTA DRINK
16 oz. warm water
2 T. fresh lemon juice
1 T. apple cider vinegar
1 T. ginger juice
Drink it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
As long as I was burning up my esophagus with this acidic drink, why not add more sting to the brew?
I know it doesn’t make any sense, but as long as I was going to suffer with this, maybe I should make it worth my while. Maybe I’m not going to last seven days with this early morning acid trip. I added one Tablespoon ginger juice by THE GINGER PEOPLE to the mix.
Yesterday I took my body measurements and weighed in just for the heck of it. I have two scales. One spring style that weighs light and one digital that weighs heavy.
If I’m going to get a flatter stomach in seven days, then I should measure my waist now to compare it when I’m seven days done. Here goes – in inches
WAIST = 40 sucked in and 42 hanging out
CHEST = 44
HIP = 43
This says I look like a big box with long arms and long legs.
NECK = 15
RIGHT THIGH = 19
LEFT THIGH = 19
RIGHT CALF = 16
LEFT CALF = 15
I’m not expecting much of a change in any of my body measurements due to my early morning acid trip.
NOW TO THE SCALE
SPRING SCALE = 159 LBS.
DIGITAL SCALE = 164.4 LBS.
FAT = 23.4
VISCERAL FAT = 11
MUSCLE = 30.8
BMI = 25.8
CALORIE/RESTING METABOLISM = 1523
I also checked my blood sugar which was 134 early morning fasting.
A couple weeks ago my blood sugar went down to the nineties, which is the lowest I’ve ever seen it. At the time I was taking a creatine supplement, which has a side effect that lowers blood sugar.
However, the creatine made me retain more fluid and increased muscle cramps. I took it to direct more fluid to my muscles, which it did, but the effects were negative. I read that vegans and old people need it, so bought it, tried it and stopped taking it.
Now I’m back to my normal-for-me blood sugar level. In the fifty years I’ve been going to doctors, it’s always right around 130. Sometimes lower, sometimes higher.
I’m also not expecting any changes on the scale in seven days, so I guess I’d better start looking for miracles.
“SEE MIRACLES”, the doctor said.
WRAP UP: The addition of the ginger juice may have all kinds of benefits, but the sting was greater as well as the heartburn, if that’s even possible. I did again eat less. I ate about two hours after consuming the drink, plus to my coffee I added 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda to reduce the total acid effect in my stomach.
I did feel more energetic when I got up in the morning.
