I’m just three days into my Insanity + Paleo + Shakeology 8 week plan. Man, I feel AMAZING! Who knew that eating 100% clean and paleo, drinking my shake, and exercising would provide this much energy.
First, my routine: I wake up, take some Beachbody Energy and Endurance, and wait 15-20 minutes, and then get my butt kicked by Insanity.
Then after I shower (and continue to sweat for a while), fix my breakfast (2-3 eggs scrambled in coconut oil, Shakeology with coconut milk and almond butter), put together my lunch, go to work, eat lunch, eat an afternoon snack, come home (or to PT then home), and then eat supper.
My proteins have been over 100g (tonight was close to 130g), my carbs have been around 100g, and fats have been around 100g. All of these are within the ranges I’m aiming for.
Here’s what I’ve noticed:
1. No crashes. I have sustained energy throughout the day.
2. Cravings are decreasing.
3. I wake up energized.
Over the next few days, I’m expecting to have better sleep. Some things take some time to adjust, especially coming off of a sinus infection. I’m aiming for 7-8 hours a night and have been successful in hitting that. I just feel incredible!
Who knew that eating well and exercising could do this?
