Day 10 of the challenge* means I’ve reached the end of the cleanse phase! Let me tell you, I can feel the difference. It’s amazing how junk food acts like sludge in our bodies. Cars can’t run on junk, and neither can we. 🙂
All right, on to the stats…
Breakfast: Leftover breakfast casserole and a banana
Lunch: Hard-boiled egg; Grape tomatoes; Clementine (I was on the run for lunch today, so I packed some quick and easy foods in a small cooler to take along.)
Supper: Mexican bowl topped with lettuce and diced tomato (Recipe found HERE – I used diced chicken instead of ground turkey)
Snacks: Unsalted peanuts with raisins; Apple; Spoonful of peanut butter; Cherries
Tea of Choice: Mint mélange tea from Trader Joe’s
Exercise: Walking with my family
Energy Level: Really good! Getting out in nature with my family was so much fun, and it felt good to be a couple pounds lighter too. 🙂
I’ve noticed a big difference in the effectiveness of my workouts the farther I get into the challenge. As I lose the extra fat and toxins, my body functions at a higher level, which makes the workouts really count. Like I said above, what we fuel our bodies with makes a big difference!
That’s it for Day 10! Thanks for hanging in this with me. It’s not easy, but so worth it in the end.
