Hi everyone ❤
I decided to do week 1 in my Abs After 30 program. If you are wondering week 1 is a carbohydrate purge week, meant to purge your liver of carbohydrates so that you can optimize your hormones. (It is explained thoroughly in the ebook.) But I just wanted to check in and say how GREAT I feel! Week 1 is always very difficult because of the hormonal cravings you experience. Since your body is used to insulin rising and falling in such a large swing, your body tricks you into thinking you are hungry (even after a meal). But my will is strong as I know my health is all the better for it. And now that I am here, I feel fantastic! Most notably, my brain function clears and feels more crisp, sugar cravings are gone, and energy levels are at a high.
I also had a great leg workout at the gym today! I performed squats, hack squats, and kettle bell swings to fatigue, finishing off the workout with 3 sets of pistol squats on a bosu ball with no shoes for balance. Top it off with 10 minutes on vibration therapy, 10 minutes in the sauna, and a stretching session.
What a great week! Hope you had a great, healthy, energetic week as well!
