40 day Lent challenge, Sport, training

Last detox day

Monday and last day in the Blessed Herbs detox colon cleansing.

Feeling a little better today, probably because I went to the gym and worked out a bit.

* 20 min on treadmill (11kph)
* 1x 20x 25kg FCT
* 1x 20x 30kg FCT
* 1x 20x 32.5kg FCT

* 2x 10 Hamstrings
* 2x 10 Push ups
* 2x 10 Saxons w/ 5kg

Just got told off by my friend Anders Nedergaard (www.kropogblog.dk) about the detox. Told me I’m loosing muscles and it was good for nothing, which I guess is partly correct, cause I frankly feel weaker and the body would tend to go into a catabolic state without carbs and protein. My reason for doing the detox, was my previous experience where I felt, I could see the results of the internal cleanse on the outside, cause my skin looked much healthier. Also, I think it would be a fault to underestimate the sense of accomplishment, that comes with this kind of fasting. Food – which I love and take for granted, all of a sudden not available for five days and it does take a mental effort as well as physiological to keep at it.
Anyway, I look forward to eat again, whether it will be tonight or tomorrow morning. (It will depend on 2nd training today: KB and Boxercise classes at Womens Fitness in Cork.)

Challenge today: Swings with the 16kg KB in class.

Detox 2nd day

Second day of detox and 10 days into Lent.

Funny thing I noticed about my detox – it almost started working right away this time. First time I did it, it took a few days before I could see the ‘results’, but this time, it’s already here. So maybe my body have been waiting for this?
If you haven’t heard about detox colon cleansing, I found this youtube vid of a guy who is doing it. I have no idea if he is also using the Blessed Herbs products or something else.

Results: mucoid & plaque

Also for the sceptics, truth be told, I don’t know if mucoid and plaque really exists. Or if it’s just the apple juice and the powder reacting in the stomach. But I did experience more tangible results last time – and I hope to see them again this time: brighter, better skin. Feeling overall better – and the feeling of accomplishing the diet itself felt good.

Remember, I am a person who loves to eat! (and do it very frequently)

Todays trip to the gym:

10 min on x-trainer (treadmills were all busy)
4x 5x 40 DL for tech + Im feeling very weak!
150 abs/ 50 back

Yoga tonight for the challenge.
