The AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge:Day Day 4
Here's the day 4 highlights! As I type this I am at the beginning of day 5 and feeling really awesome! Seriously cannot believe the energy I have throughout the day. I'm so excited to see the results from the 10 day cleanse and move on to the 14 day max phase of the challenge!
Food: Kashi cereal. Celery. Blueberries. Carrots. Cherry tomatoes. Salad. AdvoBar. Chicken noodle casserole (egg noodles). Peas.
Energy Levels: Great
Exercise: Lunges. Dead leg lifts. Squats. Stretches. Ran 3.4 miles.
Success: Feeling really good today - full of energy, healthy, focused. Plus it was nice to be able to run outside today :)
Challenge: Really starting to miss salt and realizing just how much I use.
Food: Raisin Bran. A couple handfuls of unsalted peanuts. Banana. Apple. Fat free yogurt. Sugar free pudding. Left over spaghetti with meat sauce (whole grain pasta & lean ground beef). Carrots. Apple juice. Chicken noodle casserole (egg noodles). Peas.
Energy Levels: Pretty good. No dip in energy levels despite giving up coffee, pop, & 5 hour energy. Replaced all caffeinated drinks with Spark. Drinking 3 Sparks a day.
Exercise: Weights ( biceps & triceps) Cardio - 2.5 miles on the elliptical.
Success: John's considering every day he does the cleanse "without cheating" a success.
Challenge: Meal planning. Giving up coffee, pop, tea, continues to be a challenge.
I also realized I've been forgetting to record our water intake. We've both been drinking a lot of water, which isn't a huge change for us. About 70 - 80 ounces for me (Lindsay) and 100-120 for John.
