Let me tell you how I “blew up” last week. I ran another half-marathon January 26th. I lifted the next day and then I decided to give myself a break. I weighed myself that Monday and I had gained 8-10 pounds. I didn’t totally freak out because I did just run 13.1 and I knew it was all water weight. I am not going to lie to you and say that this didn’t get me down a bit. I decided to treat myself to a massage. She worked miracles and I decided this will be my prize after every half. Because I deserve it. Damnit.
Tuesday. Wednesday. Thursday. It was Friday and I still felt like a water balloon. I was driving my husband crazy. I was becoming a major pain. Whining and whining. I admit it. I was a big baby. I am very in tune with my body and I tend to get obsessive. So, after 5 days of feeling like crap I decided to go on a cleanse. A cleanse created by me.
This cleanse consisted of lots of water, Shakeology, Click Protein, lots of veggies, and lots of fruit. That’s all the details I am giving because I don’t want to sound like I know what I am talking about and have you try and then you end up as crazy as me. Three days later and 12 pounds lighter I hit that workout room feeling like a brand new girl. Whew.
Since I have 12 more races to go I need to adjust some things with my training and fueling. It will be trial and error. I going to amp up my fruits, veggies, seeds, and nuts. I have a few more weeks until my next half. I’ll figure it out. Don’t you worry your pretty little heart. And if I don’t, I’ll be a big, whiny baby again.
My plans for training this month involve running of course, P90x, TurboFire, and Les Mills Pump. Sounds fun right!?
