Day 5 was a bit of a struggle when it came to food so I used water to help curb cravings.
I worked out in the morning, it was my first ever class I’d done with my husband as a Coach. He coaches in the morning and I don’t go when he does because the boys are in bed, but this morning I got to go to his class. It was good, and my body is feeling much better and I was looking forward to not going back to the gym for the rest of the day.
Using water to curb cravings.
I finished class, trained one of my own clients and had the rest of the day to work from home. Around mid-afternoon I was tired, I was unmotivated and wanted to snack on anything and everything. I was ready to ditch my intention for a focused 30 days of health. What I did instead was focus on water. A quick mental check made me realize I actually hadn’t drunk anywhere near enough so far throughout the day. 500ml of water later, I didn’t want to snack anymore. I felt on track and my self-destructive urges were gone.
The day finished with salad and soda water sitting on the deck in the sunniest day we’ve had so far since I’ve arrived back to the New Zealand ‘Summer’.
I also went and got new gas bottles for the soda stream on Friday. I find the bubbly water slows me down a bit, and it’s a nice change from normal water. It works as a good replacement to sipping on a glass of wine. In fact, I drank my bubble water out of a wine glass and it felt decadent.
Feeling upbeat and energized on day 6
Today has been my best day so far this week, in terms of how I feel.
I started the day with a Crossfit class, it was a partner WOD (workout of the day) which I did with my husband. We finished first so it ticked my competitive needs, which I’ve had very few wins (personal wins) for a long time. Then I went and took part in a Zumba class, not even teaching it, just being one of the people in the crowd. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt that kind of upbeat joy and optimism in a class and it felt amazing.
I walked home feeling great. I’ve been doing intermittent fasting this week, eating between 11 and 7pm, so brekky wasn’t until 11. My energy levels were up and I didn’t feel like I needed it until then anyway.
I need to sit down and make more or a food plan for the upcoming week.
