Power 90 - Week 2, Day 4 (Day of the Shakeology...)

Cardio this morning went exceptionally well.  I was tired and sluggish getting up but once I started moving I felt VERY in control.  Usually my legs give out during the knee lifts but today I was with it the whole way.  Felt very good not to be struggling but to be able to give that extra burst of power.

Today was very interesting.  I have to say I am surprised.  Pleasantly so, of course.  In fact, I'm very happy I was surprised. =)  After my Sweat 1-2 I popped open my bag of Shakeology and threw it in the blender with two scoops of strawberry whey protein and two handfuls of ice.  Poured it in a glass and had to take a picture... (see below)  I'll admit I was almost afraid to taste it. LOL  I didn't want the first taste to be all, "whatever, its okay."  I couldn't believe how rich and delicious it was.  Honestly.  It had such a rich, chocolatey flavor that I didn't notice the strawberry protein at all.  The ice really gave it a milkshake quality.  Since I've been restricting my sweets, this was a welcomed experience. It was not in my favorite glass for long...

But, it doesn't stop there.  I hurried up and jumped in the shower and headed to work.  And I will have to say that I don't think I've felt THAT good before in a long time.  I felt energetic, positive, relaxed and charged up.  I really felt good.  I am totally giving credit to the Shakeology on this one.  I had a pretty routine day, but it was how I felt that really made it unique.  I haven't had that energy at work before in a long time.

I am really interested to see how it will go tomorrow.  I am hoping that it wasn't just a fluke.  From the reviews that I have ready, it isn't... but of course, I have to see for myself. =)  I will give a full report tomorrow about that and about my dumbbell weight increase for Sculpt 1-2.  This workout and nutrition program is really changing my life.  It started slow but its accelerating now.  I can't wait to see where I end up.

Nighty night...
