Shakeology. I’m trying it. This is the complete opposite approach to my sugar detox but the reality is that I can’t live a life without sugar in my diet. I like ice cream, and wine, and the occasional piece of bread dipped in infused olive oil. The detox taught me to pay attention to my food. I definitely don’t eat like I used to and I’m very conscious of everything I consume. I still don’t use sugar in my coffee *pat on the back* and I don’t eat processed foods unless I’m downright starving for something and it’s right in front of me but I’m back to feeling like poop after my workouts. Yes, I workout often and I truly believe I’m not replenishing my system properly after my workouts. I don’t have the patience or desire to sit by a chopping board and chop a billion vegetables and then go to the stove and cook something delicious for myself and since hiring a personal chef is not in the budget I ordered a 30 day supply of Shakeology to see if it makes a difference.
Shakeology can be a supplement to your diet or 1 meal replacement. Since I spent the entire month of May eating ice cream I’m going with meal replacement. I need to shake off 5lbs and get my energy back. I also ordered P90X3 and going to attempt it. It’s going to be hard to fit those workouts with my gym workouts but I’m hoping to learn some new moves to bring to my boot camp classes.
This morning I’m trying my first shake, vanilla almond. It’s good and better than nothing or another piece of Ezekiel bread w/ cheap almond butter (I can’t WAIT to finish that crappy jar of cheap almond butter..bleh). Then I have to practice tomorrow’s spin class so I’ll see how i feel after the workout. I’m starting the p90x on Monday. I have 6 to possibly 8 hockey games starting tonight until Sunday so I don’t need any additional workouts at the moment!
