Much better lips, and no change in my happy poops. I bet you’re starting to regret reading this a little by now :) But hey, we all do it. In a minute I’ll even tell you what constitutes a happy poop!
Pulled again, spit in the appropriate place- and trust me I was actively telling myself to pay attention repeatedly- I have been more distracted that normal which has gotten in my way this week.
I was chatting with someone about oil pulling last night, and she was a little amazed that I can do it for 15 minutes already. I guess I hadn’t thought about it much, but now I see 2 keys to that:
1. I don’t use too much oil. I have a small mouth, so I might use 2 teaspoons max. I also don’t measure! I just dig out a chunk from my jar and chew on it till most of it’s melted- this is easily the worst part. If there’s not enough, I add some more.
2. I do something else. Today I made a pancake for breakfast, so I mixed up the batter and set the cast iron on the stove, dressed for work, and then I browsed through a magazine for 5 more minutes till I was done. Otherwise I’m thinking about it the whole time and driving myself nutty.
