I had plenty of energy to complete my run yesterday and I attribute that to timing my food with my workouts and Shakeology has always provided me with a lot of energy in the mornings before exercising.
I haven't had the insatiable feeling I assumed I would be experiencing. My energy levels are great so far.
I experienced some stomach cramping yesterday but nothing serious. A low-grade headache appeared last night which isn't surprising since my caffeine consumption has been cut significantly. Limited coffee and no pop. I am counting on the headache to dissipate in the next day or two.
Bedtime came an hour earlier than normal for me. I was so sleepy. I did wake up an hour earlier than normal, so there was a nice balance.
Here are day 2 recipes and my thoughts on them.
4 cups spinach
thumb-size peeled piece of gingerroot
Yum. Really liked it. It was sweet and gingery, like me :)
One Potato Sweet Potato
1 sweet potato
I forgot to add the orange. My husband sipped it and said it tasted dirty? Maybe I should peel the sweet potato next time? I wash all my ingredients so I'm not sure what happened. Maybe it was the missing orange.
Soup Experiment #2
1 red pepper
2 cups spinach
1 clove garlic
Blend avocado with other ingredients.
I added a tsp. of salt, basil and pepper.
Flavorful and filling. Will make again. Avocado wasn't ripe enough.
