Yesterday was another 99% clean eating day!
Breakfast: Oatmeal with blueberries and coconut milk (this has been my breakfast almost everyday of the challenge) and a glass of orange juice
Lunch: Pineapple, strawberries and leftovers from Monday (some cheese)
Snack: Handful of almonds and two brown rice cakes
Dinner: Roasted sweet potato with savory, thyme and olive oil and a salad with spinach, mushrooms, some butternut squash (that I overcooked in the microwave), olive oil and balsamic vinegar
I miss ranch dressing
Dessert: Digestion smoothie
I also had 60 ounces of water, I don't feel like I need more than that but I also haven't worked out really hard this week.
Yesterday was the first day that I noticed I felt A LOT better than I normally do, with one exception. The cheese I ate didn't agree with me. Well that's not a shocker since I already know I have some issues with dairy but I just wonder why I don't notice it more when I eat "normally". I guess it is because I am used to it? I think I would rather feel how I do today!
I also may have gotten a "clean" sweat yesterday. Usually when I sweat on really long runs or intense workouts I get salt all over my face, but when I did Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred (day two of Level 3) yesterday that didn't happen! It might have been because I never have a salty sweat when I do "the Shred", either way I am happy!
In other news, there are only a few more days to sign up for my birthday virtual race! (Go to the original post, here, and sign up!) I will be writing a "finish line" post with the race bib and it will also be where you can put your results. I decided to use Rafflecopter so hopefully it isn't too confusing for everyone!
Have you ever had a "clean" sweat before? Do you like butternut squash?
