Water/Detox–Limit sweets

Instead of making bigger goals that feel overwhelming, I will do smaller goals to achieve throughout the week.

So I decided to implement something different this week: I decided to do a detox first thing in the mornings (hot water, apple cider vinegar, and lemon) as well as a 3L bottle of water. Usually when given the option, I will choose something with the most sugar in it but I am making a conscious effort to only have maybe a cup of something different but drink water the rest of the day *the struggle is real*. I succeeded in getting more water in throughout the week. I did not accomplish the 3L bottle everyday but I got in a significant amount of water per day. With the detox, I did a couple in the morning and one at night. I think that I may try doing them both in the morning and at night to help with digestion.

The one thing that I really wanted to consciously work on is working out a bit more, without pressure. Thus far, I have pushed myself to go on days that I don’t normally go. And then there were days that I just decided not to go at all. I felt like I needed to but didn’t to give my body a bit of rest.

This week’s small goal is: cut back on the amount of sweets that I consume. Sweets are certainly my kryptonite and I tend to gravitate toward them knowing I don’t need to consume as much. There’s nothing wrong with something here and there but I have a tendency to indulge and not feel so hot afterward (stomach issues or sweet overload, ect.). Let’s see how this goes.

Have a good week all,
Amber

40 Days of Beast

I had been hoping that I would come across a challenge that seemed plausible for me, something to be accountable for and something popped up on both my FB and IG and I said to myself, “you needed a sign so here ya go” and like what has happened in the past, I have fallen completely off. It’s been disheartening because I was really on it and I was working for it. I am hoping that this is what brings me out of my slump. So on Sunday, which is how I begin my workout cycles, I will join the 40 Days of Beast that one of my fellow Berkeley alums and Frat brother started together.
