Today was a decent day, although I kind of had the "munchies". I am not sure why, but guessing because my workouts are getting a bit more intense and my body is craving more nutrition and calories.
I started off the morning with my blueberry protein shake and headed to the gym for a workout with my Trainer. Like I said, the workouts are getting tougher as they should because I am getting in better shape. I feel like I should TOTALLY have 6-pack abs by now! lol. After my workout, I rushed home to shower and then had to hurry over to the hospital to train a client there. I grabbed some homemade deer jerky as I walked out the door to munch on, on the drive. I came back home after the session and put some black bean burgers in the oven, along with some spinach wraps. I didn't make them, but easily could and will sometime. Of course, I smothered my black bean burger with hot sauce. Mmmm.
After lunch, I sat and watched television for about 15 minutes before heading to a meeting for a health council I am on. I came out of the meeting with an aspiring outlook for this group and am very excited for what is to come! I went directly to the gym from the meeting to train a client and had about 90 minutes before I trained another client so I took this time to talk to gym members and do some organization around the gym.
I was pretty hungry when I got home and got out the hummus I made a few days ago to snack on and had another piece of deer jerky. About an hour later I made a yummy juice and put a black bean burger in the oven. Skipped out on the protein in my juice because was just wanting to eat something! My juice was: 2 apples, 2 kiwis, broccoli, cucumber, ginger and water cress. Yummmy!
I am ending the evening just kind of hanging out and playing with the dog (Plyo). Two more days until my challenge is complete (Friday) and can say that Im ready! I like having freedom with my choices and like having a glass of wine here and there or meeting a friend out every once in a while so I am excited to have that freedom again, but also ecstatic for what I've learned during this challenge and would do it over again in a heartbeat. I will definitely continue to juice on a daily basis after Friday. I will also continue to have fresh lemons and limes in the fridge so I can add them to my water as a daily detox.
You want to keep reading, especially on Saturday because I will have one of my favorite Doctors blogging about the benefits of juicing on Saturday! :)
