Just before I ran out to Booty Barre class I remembered that I didn't shave yesterday, so I did a pit check. Then, I did what I know I should never do--dry shave. I patted a little water under my arms and ended up scraping/burning my underarms. I should have just not worried about it. Probably no one would notice, but I always feel like I need to shave. Now I can't shave for a few days so my skin can heal. What is the answer? Anybody do lasers or waxing?
Last time I tried to get in on Booty Barre it was packed. This time I arrived 10 minutes early and got a good spot in the front row. I can tell that my posture is getting better. I can stay on my toes for longer and I am squeezing my glutes during most of the class. I may have found the antidote for my hereditary rear flatness.
Today is the last day of my cleanse. I have not cheated like I normally do. A bite of something here or there. This time I was really good. I did eat more snacks--apple with peanut butter or celery and PB, so I wouldn't be tempted by the other treats in the house. I could have done better with my water consumption a couple days, but all in all it was a successful 10 days. I just need to keep up eating every couple of hours and making sure to eat after a workout.
My favorite food I used this round was the Light Muscle Milk premade protein shakes from Costco. I put one in the car to have after the gym. They were like a treat, but gave me a good 20g protein shot. I also ate carne asada with corn tortillas and avocado. You could just use the meat as a tortilla and add avocado, lettuce, and tomatoes.
We've had gray, cold days for a few weeks. The sun finally broke out this afternoon. Time to go soak it up. Hopefully it stays for a while.
