Day 13 ~ 30 Day Vegan Cleanse

~ Day 13 ~

I will start off by saying - WHOA!  Crazy energy today!!  I love it.  Today is a day when I *needed* crazy energy between my Insanity workout and TurboKick class.  I feel really good today.  I'm not tired, and I am not sore when I am resting.  I feel relaxed and very positive.  I am looking forward to many more days like today.

First, I will say that I had my first (and hopefully only) slip-up today.  I had a dentist appointment at 5 PM and TurboKick at 7 PM so I did not have time to plan or prepare anything for dinner.  In retrospect, I really could have made a quick bean salad and packed it with me to have in the car.  However, I grabbed a ProBar and ran out the door.  While eating it, in the car (gasp!! I said I would not do that anymore), in the dark...All of a sudden I tasted....ugh...CHOCOLATE!  Yeesh - there was unsweetened dark chocolate in the bar - a Berry & nut bar - and I had no idea until I started eating it.  I was really hungry so I finished it...and it was pretty spectacular...but nonetheless, I had some chocolate.  That was a one-time oops, and I plan to not have any more of those while on the cleanse.

I tried Kombucha tea for the first time tonight.  My first sip I was skeptical, but by the end of it, I thought it was pretty good - and I feel like it really helped me through my TurboKick class.  It gave me a great natural energy.

I wore my Bodybugg just for this afternoon and tonight.  I have not been wearing it because one of my big goals is to not count calories anymore...but I wanted to see what the calorie burn would be between my two workouts.  From 1:30 PM through 10:00 PM, I burned almost 2500 calories.  I broke it down according to time and here's what the two separate workouts came out to:
Insanity Plyometric Cardio Circuit ~ 356 calories burned
TurboKick class ~ 584 calories burned
This proves that I work MUCH harder in a class with people, feeding off of the enthusiasm and excitement.  I love that!!

The best compliment of the night: "You have NOT had three kids!"
(Thank YOU!) If she had seen me two years ago, she'd have known.

Okay, here's the day in food:
Breakfast ~ mashed sweet potato with 3/4 of a small apple, chopped and chopped raw pecans, with a sprinkle of cinnamon (heavenly!!)
Snack ~ Protein shake: 8 oz unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze, 2T vanilla hemp protein powder, 2 handfuls spinach, 1/2 cup frozen cherries
Lunch ~ chopped veggie salad w/1T Braggs vinaigrette, 1T raw pumpkin seeds & big scoop of the mock-tuna salad (with chick peas)
Dinner ~ ProBar & 8 oz Kombucha tea
Snack ~ Kale chips & Raw Revolution bar (mini) Spirulina & cashew
Water ~ I lost track - but I am pretty sure it was over 125 oz.
Workouts ~ see above

And just a couple of pictures...

Breakfast - YUMMMMM!

(good thing it wasn't following the TK workout - I was drenched!)


  1. How is the mock tuna salad working out for you? I love chick peas and actually have them on my list to buy for some of my meals next week. I was thinking of giving it a try and seeing if I could pass it off to my gang. I have to ask and sorry if I missed the post already but how did you prepare your chick peas?
