Pre-Pre-Cleanse Day Three of Three

I wrote yesterday that I was tired and today wasn’t any better. I skipped one of my snacks because I fell asleep between 10:30 am and 12 pm.  I didn’t want to take a nap and I was disappointed that I fell asleep on the couch but I guess my body knows it needed rest.

shaking fist up to the air
But damn you tired body I had things to do!!!!

When I woke up I didn’t feel any better I was groggy and my brain was foggy.  I am sure you all know that feeling and it took me a bit to fully wake up.

By the time, I had my tea and some food I felt better.

Seems Thursday was a day of rest.

Pre-Pre-Cleanse Day Two of Three

It’s 8:30 pm and I am feeling tired. I didn’t start out the day feeling tired but by 7 pm I was ready to go to bed. Who goes to bed at 7?  Old people and I don’t want to feel like I am old.  So, I am staying up!  Lol

But now it’s almost 9pm and I can’t fight it anymore.  I am exhausted.

I think the reasons I am tired is due to a combination of my bootcamp workouts and my pre-cleanse food intake.  I promised him that if I was hungry I would eat and I’ve been keeping this promise.  It’s just that I am not hungry in between meals so maybe I think I should add more protein to my meals.
It also could be something completely different and not related to my workouts at all.

I’ll make some changes and see what tomorrow brings.

On a different note my workout today nearly killed me but the competitive girl in me wants to continue because I believe that one day I will be able to complete this and other workouts!
One day.  🙂

Pre-Pre-Cleanse Day One of Three

I survived my first day and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I was a bit hungry at times especially after my bootcamp workout but adhering to their tight schedule wasn’t too bad.  I didn’t start when they started I had to start earlier and at times I was an hour late but overall I like the structure and routine. 🙂

Let me tell you our trainer Stephanie worked us at The Camp.  My legs were wobbly from all the squats and pulses she had us do in-between sets!
According to my Fitbit I used up 460 calories in 50 min. Tomorrow my legs and butt will be sore.

I was thankful that my next meal was a protein bowl. I was one starving girl.

Overall it was a good day.  The drinks didn’t taste bad at all and they reminded of the healthy juices my mom used to make when I was a little girl.  It sure brought back memories. Lunch and dinner was very good and I was happy because I never made a protein bowl or cooked salmon the way they told me to.

I wasn’t tired and was happy that I didn’t feel like I needed my afternoon coffee.
