Well yesterday was definitely a Monday! I was in bed by 745 last night and was so ready. It wasn’t a bad day by any means but it wasn’t a super fun day either. I made some grilled chicken thighs and potatoes for dinner. It feels like it’s been ages since I actually cooked. So that actually felt good. Other than that here we are and April is almost over!

Workout Recap!

Facebook

Remember that competition I told you about? Yeah, I’m still training for that. I’m working on my weaknesses while maintaining my strengths. It’s really tough! I’m currently doing a cleanse to slay the sugar monster that has developed again. Boo.

Monday
WOD 1
15min AMRAP:
10 handwalks
20 pushups
30 sumo high pulls, I did hang cleans @75lbs instead

I got 3 rounds + handwalks.

WOD 2
Not really a workout, but a billion* toe-to-bar. I’m really weak in toe-to-bar and doing them efficiently. So I worked on my technique on getting them down quickly.

*Obviously an exaggeration, but I don’t know how many I did.

Tuesday
WOD 1
20, 18, 16, … 6, 4, 2

I made it through the workout and 16+9 on the challenge

WOD 2

30 KB Swings (35lbs)
Run 400m
Toe to bar

Wednesday
WOD 1
Run 800m
100 bicycle abs (each side)
100 reverse crunch
100 sit ups
Run 800m

I finished in 24:00 without shoes, I walked the mile in flip flops!

Thursday
WOD 1
15 min AMRAP:
5 pullups
10 shoulder press (65lbs)
15 mountain climbers

I got 7 rounds + pullups.

I didn’t do a second workout, I wasn’t feeling great and decided not to push too hard.

Friday
WOD 1
40 jump squats
40 burpees
40 plank jacks
200m run
30 jump squats
30 burpees
30 plank jacks

Well I’m definitely into the busy part of my week. Today will be interesting with work, gym and softball practice. Oh and there’s a vendor show at the Shrine tomorrow. Yep, got to get ready for that. It’s going to be crazy. Anyway, yesterday was a pretty good day. Nothing really exciting to share, but an overall good day.

After the workout I didn’t feel real good. So I went home and felt better and had some chips and guac then went to the church for FPU and got the bagel sandwich and latte and after that my stomach has been pretty upset. Wonder what is going on?

Here’s the recap:
30mins before breakfast: coffee w/milk, Probiotic Restore (2)

Breakfast: Chocolate Mint Brownie MRS, Lower Sugar Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal, P&C Fiber Drink

Snack: Apple w/pb

Lunch: Turkey Rollup (turkey, swiss, onion & chive cream cheese on flour tortilla), garden salad mix w/spinach and italian dressing

Snack: none

Dinner: Chipotle chips & guac, bagel sandwich, white chocolate latte

Snack: none

Bedtime: herbal caplets (2), catalyst (3)

Advocare Cleanse Day 3!

AC_logoblue-pms2748

Well yesterday was an interesting day. I had my brother finishing up my car repairs and on a busy day that was a disaster, but it worked out in the end. The car is running good (knock on wood) and I got all my stuff done. The alarm went off too early this morning, but that’s life I suppose.

We have a guy doing a detail in our office from Colorado this week. So we went out to lunch yesterday. That was pretty fun. I didn’t want him to have to eat alone the whole time he was here! That would be no fun at all. So hopefully that helped. We went to a local place called Hog Wild. It’s just a little cafe that mainly prepares pork, but also has other options as well. The food is always good and the portions are insane.

Here is the recap:
30mins before breakfast: Probiotic Restore (2), coffee w/milk

Breakfast: Mint Chocolate Brownie MRS, P&C Fiber Drink, Reduced Sugar Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal

Snack: apple w/peanut butter

Lunch: chicken fried steak w/gravy, mashed potatoes

Snack: mandarin orange Spark

Dinner: Chipotle chicken burrito bowl-chicken, white rice, pinto beans, corn salsa, sour cream

Snack: none

Bedtime: Herbal Cleanse Caplets (2), Catalyst (3)

Advocare Cleanse Day 2!

AC_logoblue-pms2748

Clyde had to go to the vet yesterday. That always makes for an interesting time. But we got great news, his ear infection is all healed and I got parent of the day! Woot woot! I’m just so glad we are done with the drops. Now maybe he will stop acting out so much. Other than that we had a pretty relaxed day. We went to the gym and then home and just chilled out on the couch and watched Supernatural. Seriously. I cannot stop watching. Dang Netflix!

I was ridiculously excited about my lunch today and as you can see there was nothing terribly exciting about it. I had been craving a turkey rollup for like 5 days now though and  paired with that salad it was pretty amazing. I savored every last bite of it. I’m thinking it may become a new staple for lunches. They are quick and easy and I can leave the ingredients at work so I don’t have to worry about doing another thing in the morning. It’s wonderful.

Day 2 Recap:

30mins before breakfast: Coffee w/milk, Probiotic Restore (2)

Breakfast: Mint Chocolate Brownie MRS, P&C Fiber Drink, Reduced Sugar Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal (2packts)

Snack: apple w/peanut butter

Lunch: turkey roll up w/chive & onion cream cheese, swiss cheese and flour tortilla, side salad (2c spinach 2c garden vegetable mix lettuce) w/Italian dressing

Snack: mandarin orange spark

Dinner: Spaghetti sauce over macaroni, garlic bread, OmegaPlex (2)

Snack: none

Bedtime: Herbal Cleanse Caplets (2), Catalyst (3)

Notes: Today was good. Nothing too crazy going on yet. The sugar dragon has started to be slayed. I’m definitely not having the sweet cravings. Having some savory cravings though, like the turkey roll up. So that is good. Lots of protein!

New Advocare Herbal Cleanse! Day 1 Recap!

Posted on

AC_logoblue-pms2748

Advocare released a new version of the cleanse last week. It’s pretty exciting stuff. The cleanse used to be kind of complicated, trying to remember what to take when, now they’ve solved all those problems. You will now take all the products for all 10 days! That’s great! I always wondered why some days you took the fiber drink and some days you took the probiotic and others you took the herbal cleanse caplets. Now there’s no mystery!

New Cleanse

The other great thing that was released is the unflavored fiber drink, no more having to choose peaches and cream or citrus. The unflavored drink can be easily mixed in with the Advocare Meal Replacement Shakes or other drinks because it is unflavored! That is great news! I did order the peaches and cream fiber drink this time though.

I’m so excited about the new cleanse that I decided it was time to do one myself. I have been having off the wall sugar cravings and have just been feeling like it’s time to do a reset. I like to do them about every 90 days and I’m WAY over that now. It’s definitely time and the new version of the cleanse was the perfect thing to get me jump started!

Here is a recap of Day 1:

30mins before breakfast: Coffee w/milk, Probiotic Restore (2 capsules)

Breakfast: Peaches & Cream Fiber Drink, Chocolate Mint Brownie MRS, 2 packets maple & brown sugar oatmeal

Snack: Golden Delicious Apple w/peanut butter, handful of almonds

Lunch: Spaghetti sauce over macaroni noodles

Snack: Mandarin Orange Spark

Dinner: Spaghetti sauce over macaroni noodles w/garlic bread, OmegaPlex (2 capsules)

Snack: None

Bedtime: Herbal Cleanse Caplets, Catalyst

Workouts: Workouts will be recapped in the weekly post.

Overall thoughts: So far so good.

Side Note: I am training for a competition so I have to keep my protein levels up and that’s why there is so much breakfast.
