So excited to join this group and the timing of this little challenge couldn't be better!

I just had my second child 2 months ago and have been working out for the last 3 weeks - trying to build up my endurance & strength again.

A little background on me...
I'm a personal trainer, studying to become a Holistic Nutritionist (Plant Based) and am a mother to 2 girls. I've been a Vegan for almost 3 years now and a vegetarian for 8.

I blog regularly on my site http://www.hol-fit.com and I'm currently running a 3 week detox/cleanse in which I'm cutting out all sugar for the month and doing a lot of juicing/blending.

I didn't have a chance to workout today as I had to pack the girls up and travel a few hours to visit family. I'll be checking out a local gym tomorrow morning.

Looking forward to a great month!
Ange

Tried out a new gym near where my family lives that I'm visiting for a late Christmas.
Did a quick back & shoulder circuit with 20 min of running beforehand. Snuck out of the house before the kiddos woke up :)

We're having the big dinner tonight so I'll be practicing a bit of moderation :)

Day 3:

Started the day off with a 30 minute run. After having my baby girl 10 weeks ago, I'm having to to stop every 5 min and walk but I'm excited to work my way back up to my pre pregnancy fitness.

Food is still all over the place as I've been staying at my Mom's house (late Christmas)
Heading home tomorrow and I'm excited to get back into the kitchen. I'm preparing for a 3 week detox of no sugar, wheat or soy.

Hi Ange,
I was reading some of the stuff on your website, I loved it! I am very interested to hear more about your 3 week detox/cleanse. I went to a herbalist a while back that set me up om a 2 week detox diet and I absolutely loved it!

That sounds great!
I might have to steal a few recipes from you. Sugar can be my weakness too... !
Good luck on day #2!

Day 10:

Started out today with buckwheat oats, chia & walnuts. Didn't have veggie juice b/c I ran out of produce yesterday :(
Stocked up the fridge today.
Lunch: lentil walnut pate sandwich on sprouted bread. Super yum!

I felt almost vibrational when doing my workout today - full of energy!!
It was a great leg blaster if you want to give it a try:

Warmup on Tmill: 5 min

Circuit: (using 20 lb barbell)
Barbell lunges x 10 ea leg
barbell deadlifts x 20
barbell squats x 20
donkey kicks x 20 ea leg
ball hamstring curls x 20

Run on treadmill for 5 min as follows:
-1 min walk (to prep legs), 1 min @ 7.5, 1 min @ 7.0, 1 min @ 6.5, 1 min @ 6.0

Repeat the circuit & treadmill for 3x's through.
Total workout should take about 45 min.
