Today is Day 7 and I made it through the weekend. Here are a few things I am noticing/have noticed:
- Not hungry often
- Drinking a ton of water
- Running on the cleanse is extremely hard - feeling like not much in me to keep going out there.
- Crabbiness is fading
- Skin looking clear
- No stomach issues
- More tired than usual
- Sleeping great
I am chugging along just fine... I have my moments when those Russel Stover Coconut Haystacks are screaming my name from my pantry, when my kids are enjoying the biscuits and gravy I made for breakfast, and/or when I see someone drinking a cold beer BUT... it's getting easier.
Typical Food for the day...
Breakfast - 2 hard boiled eggs and a banana
Snack - apple
Lunch - this nut mix I made (raisins, almonds, sunflower seeds, etc...), carrots, and chicken breast
Snack - edamame
Dinner - protein, veggie, and fruit
I have been downing water like no other - and I am STILL drinking my coffee WITH cream. We are over the half way mark here - and in the home stretch. Only 4 more days to go. YAY! Then, Friday I am hitting up my favorite sushi spot with my 4 homegirls. I miss them and can't wait to eat, drink, and plan our Chitown trip in June. It's our 35th b-day girls trip (one year early)... #leggo
This upcoming week, my marathon training schedule had me scale back to 24 miles, but honestly... the cleanse HAD me scale it back even more. I ran a total of 18 miles this week - those 6 I needed to get in, I am chalking up to lack of energy and/or carbs.
This week my marathon training schedule looks like this:
Monday - 4 miles
Tuesday - 3 miles
Wednesday - 4 miles
Thursday - Rest or Cross Train
Friday - 6 miles
Saturday - Rest or Cross Train
Sunday - 14 miles
Monday OutHow is the cleanse going for you? How was your weekend? Going to be in Chicago in June?
