Today is Day 4 of my Cleanse for Abs challenge.
Do I notice a difference? I suppose I’ve dropped 1.5lbs since Monday morning, but not sure if it’s water weight or fat or a combination of both.
What have I been eating besides the breakfast smoothies? Yogurt, cottage cheese, fresh strawberries and blueberries, seaweed soup using bone broth w/ meat and connective tissue off the bones, raw greens, and green tea.
What other activities have I been doing other than the abs challenge? Hot yoga, strength training (kettle bell swings, 1 min planks, push-ups, and squats), and HIT workout for abs, butt and thighs from FitnessBlender on YouTube. I haven’t been able to run because I injured my foot, so it limits my cardio. I plan on incorporating swimming as my cardio replacement.
Day 5 Smoothie: 10 fl oz of water, 1 whole organic lemon (peels on), 1 cup frozen spinach, 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries, 1/2 tbsp matcha powder, 1 tbsp protein powder — w/ addition of: 1.5 stalks of celery
My Tip? Use a straw to minimize the taste, it’s not pleasant.
