Juice Ranch Healed Me

I’m feeling much better after a couple nights of better sleep. STUFT Mama linked to this article on ProForm about how important sleep is, and after looking at it all I could think was, “Oh… great.” My mom and grandma have the same sleeping issues I do, so I feel like I’m doomed to always deal with it. Oh well!

I didn’t exercise on Monday, and headed to the best juice place in town, Juice Ranch, for their green juices and immunity shot (a blend of lemon, ginger, cayenne, garlic and oregano oil, taken like a shot and with an orange slice chaser… burns so good). It really did make me feel so much better immediately afterward. (I took a super artsy picture of my juices on the top of my dirty car with the ocean in the background, but it got deleted from my phone. It’s too bad, it had a huge nasty garbage can in the background and everything. Instead, I took this picture from Juice Ranch’s Instagram account, it basically looked the same…)

Yesterday I went for a run during my lunch break (I’m fortunate because I don’t have a set time/length of my lunch breaks and the beach is so close I can smell it outside my office, so I can just run on the beach path), and it was so nice to get outside and sweat a bit after a few days off. It’s important to take breaks when you are sitting in front of a computer all day (13 hours yesterday, Tuesdays are Wednesdays are rough).

I went to bootcamp this morning and even though I didn’t get much sleep, it felt really good. I love bootcamp (I’ve been taking classes with Jenny Schatzle for about a year), it’s so intense and we work all muscles, and do sprints on the treadmills. My half training plan called for a track workout with sprints, and at bootcamp we did four rounds of minute-long hill sprints. I figured that counts.)

Post-bootcamp. Please excuse the crazed expression, I'm a selfie noob.
