|Best shape EVER on vacation! Visiting wonderful childhood friends.|
So I promised when I started this blog to be perfectly honest with anyone who may be following my progress and that is what I intend to do. October has definitely been a challenging month for me. Between my trip to Northern Ireland to visit friends and family, dealing with the week leading up to the trip and trying to get things organized for work, then dealing with the emotions of coming back from a trip where I have to say goodbye to many people I love and will miss is very emotionally draining. I'm human. Sometimes I can't do it all too! I was however able to get a few workouts in here and there, even on vacation and managed to keep healthy snacks on me and eat a good breakfast each day but I still am off track with my workout program and it's thrown me a bit out of wack.
The week coming back from vacation was probably the most difficult. I think it's always hard jumping straight into work and a stressful job the day after you return from holiday and the wheels just kept spinning from there. Workouts were minimal but I was able to maintain a relatively good eating pattern. Not 100% but fairly good. Now it's time to let the excuses go.
|Back on the horse!|
Phase 2 of my Body Beast/T25 hybrid program was pretty much demolished for me this month so I'm going to re-start it over again. Beginning yesterday with Body Beast Bulk Chest and today with Bulk Legs! One of my favorites. I ALWAYS feel leg day for a couple of days afterwards and it's a great reminder to me of the hard work I put in and my changing body.
Shakeology 3 day Cleanse
|Shakeology 3 day cleanse|
To help get rid of a lot of the toxins and junk I put in my body while on vacation I'm going to be doing the Shakeology 3 day cleanse starting on Monday. I've chosen Monday for this because I know doing a cleanse would be more difficult for me when I have more time over the weekend to sit at home and think about food! When I'm at work, my mind is focused on other things. The great thing about this cleanse though is that it's not an all liquid cleanse. You still eat substantially well, just entirely clean and substitute 3 of your 6 meals a day with Shakeology. Considering I love the shakes anyway I don't see this being too much of a problem. I'm excited to reboot my system though and prepare myself for the best possible eating habits leading up to Thanksgiving (I fully intend to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner in all it's glory). I'll post the results from my cleanse on here once I've finished! I also plan on doing this after Thanksgiving and Christmas so if you have an interest in joining my 3 day challenge group for the Shakeology cleanse fill in the form below and I'll notify you closer to the date so you can get your Shakeology supplies for it.
