I am feeling pretty excited this week. Maybe a little bright eyed and bushy tailed!
I’ve been trying a few new things which have me feeling pretty good.
- Lemon water with commute
- Drinking daily Shakeology
My Coach posted an article about the benefits of drinking lemon water. You can click through HERE to see what I am talking about. I decided to try it first thing in the AM every day. I have been prepping it the night before and I’ll admit I drink it cold.
First day, I emptied half a lemon of juice into my water bottle. The next day I took a big swig first thing in the morning. OOOPS! TOO MUCH LEMON!! That woke me up really quickly! I drank it all, but had *sour face* for a good long time.
Second day, I emptied a quarter of a lemon into the water. This is perfect!! I have been on it for two days at this amount of lemon and it is actually delicious. It really does help to have it first thing in the morning – it has been helping me to wake up. I feel refreshed and *awake* even before I get my coffee.
In anticipation of the 21 day fix program I’ll be starting next week, I decided to just start drinking Shakeology right away. Here are some observations I have about it…
- Greenberry flavor is DELICIOUS
- I enjoy drinking it – even without ice – barely any grit! So it mixes well
- I feel energized and clear minded
- Junk food cravings seem to be better
Now I’m not sure if all these benefits are due to the Shakeology completely – but I have been FEELING better. Could be the lemon water, could be the Shakeo, could be placebo effect – I don’t know! But at the end of the night, I still feel like I have gas in the tank, like I could give more.
This has me a little hopeful for getting my workouts in starting next week.
Still bumming around. Although, I did do a gravity (total gym) workout at the gym yesterday. I am soreeee today! It was a new program this week and boy did the trainer get my muscles working!
But even after that, I still felt pumped and ready to go! I’m excited to get back into organized exercise everyday starting next week. I told the hubby that I am going to be taking over the TV every day at 9pm to do my at home workout vids. The program is really cool with a different video for each day of the week. I think it may do wonders for keeping me engaged and not getting bored!
That’s all folks!
I think that is about all I have for you today. I’ll be playing with my meal plan for next week tomorrow night – I’ll see what I come up with that is 21 day fix approved!
Take care –
