Back on track in terms of longer exercise sessions – always feels good to get back to the gym/CrossFit Box though I did struggle during some bits – especially with Cleans.
I spent about 2 hours in the kitchen today preparing food for the next few meals. I’m hoping that taking the time now will save me a bit of time later on in the week as it’s going to be another crazy one in terms of work. Preparation to staying on track is definitely key.
Some of my friends have been asking how I’m going to ‘celebrate’ once the challenge is over. By celebrate they’re all talking about food. What do I want to eat first? A brownie? Some pizza?
I find the question kind of amusing. I actually have nothing that I’ve been craving or that I can’t wait to start eating again. I definitely feel apprehensive about eating sugar. I think that avoiding sugar for the past 8 weeks has been really good for me. I admit that still usually have the desire to eat something sweet each day, but I’ve managed to push past it so it’s not something that I want to restart. As for grains/starches and dairy … I don’t know.
So right now I don’t have any answers. I think I’m just going to have to play it by ear and see how it goes.
So far so good though. It’s the end of Day 52 and I’m feeling great.
