Day 4- Rough Day
The effects of low-calorie, low-sodium, high intensity workouts and minimal solid food feels like it’s catching up to me today. I’ve got a little bit of a short fuse and low energy. However, a great reprieve was training my east coast client via Skype. It was so nice to be able to sit down in a calm place in Beverly Hills for an hour training her from afar!
I tried my best to keep my social calendar clear for this week, to both conserve energy and not tempt my palette, but who could pass up seeing a sneak preview of then Hunger Games?! Certainly not me! This outing also included dinner before..uh-oh! Before I arrived, I jokingly asked my friend to order me a cucumber for dinner and when I arrived, there was a plate of sliced cucumber and lemon slices. I savored every bite!! It still wasn’t enough to fend off all of the Italian goodness wafting in the air, so I folded and had one piece of Italian bread and butter. Butter never tasted so good!!! I also had a glass of Cabernet and wine has never so quickly gone to my head!! I made it through the movie without any popcorn and by the way I loved it and can’t wait for the 3rd one!
Workouts: 1 1/2 hours
An advanced yoga class with Rebecca Benenati– thank you Rebecca! My yoga mat was drenched once again!
Warm water lemon juice from 1 Organic lemon
3 bottles throughout the day: 16 oz of filtered water, 1 organic lemon, Organic Blue Agave and Cayenne Pepper to flush the system.
Breakfast: Pressed Juicery-Greens 2
Lunch: Kale Salad with lemon
Afternoon: Pressed Juicery-Roots 3
Dinner: Cucumber with 1 slice of bread with light butter
Before Bed: 8 oz Organic Aloe Vera Juice
Taught classes and trained clients back to back. By the time I got home, I crashed and my Calm Powder (more on this later) helped give me a good night’s sleep!
