Just an update

Well, one week down and start of the second week of the cleanse protocol. I thought I was going to be blogging every day about it to stay focused but I am finding that I am doing fine without the daily update. I am going through the cleanse with a large group of people via my nutritionist so I think that is helping.

I will say that I had a few rough days, where I just did not feel well. I am not sure why that was as I don't remember having those days last time I went through the process. It is likely because of the holiday season and having to detox a few things out of my body that I didn't need to last time. I am feeling well now and full of energy so I start week 2 with a great attitude.

Other things that have been happening...well, I fell training for a stair event and have a bad bruise that finally feels like it is healing. I have actually been fortunate not to have hurt myself like this very often so it kind of freaked me out. I have never had a bruise so big (it covers my shin and calf and part of my foot/ankle). I am also very fortunate that I can still workout as it is only a bruise.

I have been loving time at my new gym. I have tried a few classes. First, a spin class, which I did not like very much at all. I am going to try again at some point but for now, I am sticking to things I really do enjoy. As Tim told me, I don't have to like everything. Second, I did a barbell class. I had been doing a lot of body pump classes a few years ago and loved them. Well, I still do love these classes. I just wish this gym had bigger plates. The highest weight on a plate is 10 pounds. I seem to recall 25 pound plates at body pump. Because the classes was filled to capacity, there were no extra plates either so my dead lifts were rather light. Still, I will go again.

Here the weather is cold and, with my shin, I have not been out running yet. I think I may need to change my goal of running a half in May but I am sure I can find one later in the year to run. So, that about does it. One to week two of the cleanse.

Just a little reminder for me.


  1. Glad you didn't break something. Congrats on the progress.

  2. Yes, I'm glad you didn't hurt yourself worse. You're very lucky about that.
