Day #11: Circuit Cardio: Not Easy

Day #  11 of my 30 day Smoothie & Raw Food Challenge


It's day #11 and I have expressed how great I feel on day #10, but I also had the biggest challenge with food. I was feeling very hungry yesterday (day #10), even if I had my breakfast and lunch on time, etc. However, I realized that I ate way too much peanuts yesterday, so the next five (5) days, my goal is to decrease the consumption of fat to a minimum.

I had a really hard time waking this morning to do my insanity, after not running yesterday evening because of excessive rain showers (to which I am thankful for the rain). I feel accountable to myself after the commitment I have made to do insanity and complete the 60 days of exercise; also am commitment to you my audience who take the time out to read my blog. I will continue to update you as I work through this challenge and discover my true inner strength.

I encourage everyone to check your allergies to specific food and consult with your physician before starting any exercise journey.
