Juice Cleanse! Day 10!

Rockin’ and Rollin’ through day 10 of cleansing! Although I did eat a decent amount of food today along with my juicing. That’s just the way it has to be as I am now too busy. My alarm went off at 7am today and it was off to the races. After working a bit this morning, I managed to squeeze in a quick workout. I did the Turbo Fire H.I.I.T 15 which was actually a pretty good but quick cardio workout. Then it was off to an appointment, followed by work, followed by band rehearsal. And now I’m finally done for the day and ready to fall on my face. haha.

I drank 3 juices today. The first 2 were made from this…

Juice 1-17

Ingredients: Kale, Spinach, Bok Choy, Romaine Lettuce, Cucumber, Celery, Dandelion Root, Parsley, Lemon, Lime, and Ginger.

On my way to my afternoon work, I got a good green juice from Whole Foods and a big salad for dinner. I had 2 greens protein shakes as well as ate some other clean snacks today. And of course, lot’s of alkaline water.

This cleanse calls for 1 more day of pure juice and then 3 days of a morning juice and food all day. Since I have modified it anyway, I will just continue to eat as clean as possible and juice as much as possible through the end of the 14 days. And after that… I will continue eating a diet much the same. This has been a great experience thus far and I welcome this new way of eating into my life with open arms.

I hope you had a great day and I bid you goodnight.

P90X – Round 2, Day 10!

Happy Monday!

P90X – Shoulders and Arms
P90X – Ab Ripper X
Total Time = 81 Minutes

Big time workout this morning and I am toast!  I love the shoulders and arms… great stuff.  And my chest is still sore from my workout on Saturday, so I guess Round 2 is still effective.  I am pushing myself harder on this round and going to failure on almost every exercise.  My shoulders, biceps, and triceps are swelled up.  I did Abs as well, but I mixed in a few of my own exercises along with some of the ones in Ab Ripper X.  Since I’ve done this particular ab workout so many times, it is nice to mix it up a bit and keep it fresh.  I also find that I can hit some other parts of my abs by doing other moves.  I used the bosu ball today for a few exercises and I also did a few planks held for a minute each.  Overall my body is worked out and feeling great.  I am back to work now and then tonight I have a 2 hour rehearsal with my band DropDead LA.  That’s 2 hours of drumming to cap off my physical activity for the day.  I wish you all a beautiful start to the week.  And before I go… my inspirational quote of the day…
