Yesterday was the official start day of my training and eating healthier.
It started off well with a nice sleep in with the beau and successful morning shakes.
Puttering around catching up on laundry and all the fun stuff in life left me drained. I had a headache and felt off. The only culprit I can blames caffeine, I always have one cup of coffee a day so not having on yesterday morning was killer. By 5pm I had to try a run, we downloaded this app which sets you up on a route around your area and we were set to do 5km. We started to run and by 0.5km My head was pounding! I pushed to try and finish but at 3km I couldn’t take it anymore so we headed back home.
I would strongly suggest to anyone who is looking at changing their diet AND training plan is to start the meal plan a week before. Training when your body is in detox is hell!
Today is a rest day but I’m back and at it tomorrow.
here’s hoping for a more successful Run.
Most of us drink coffee, tea, and or pop at least once a day, most likely more.
For those of us who drink more than one cup of a caffeine beverage (especially coffee) it’s important to cut back. There are lots of tea’s that are actually good for us and pop should be cut completely so I’ll just keep this post mostly about coffee.
I am extremely passionate about fitness and health & wellness.
I’m a dance teacher (among many diff. jobs) and have my BCRPA certification in group fitness. Over these past few years I have been reading more and more about safe training for different types of fitness and nutrition. The more I read the more I saw ad’s and claims such as “flat abs in 6 days no exercise required” or “shed fat by cutting carbs”. A bit of schooling and common sense had me question these claims. Is this true? Can this happen? How? This cannot be possible!
The more I read the more I believe there is a simple solution to looking and feeling your best……
CONSISTENTLY Eat Clean and Exercise.

No one EVER should cut out any food group. Eat the amount of calories you need to maintain or achieve your goals and exercise everyday.
