Yesterday, I got a chance to go mountain biking and did not realize how covered the trails would be from all the fallen leaves.

My arms felt so weak, and did for a few days after the class. Once I made
some adjustments that are allowed in the program, I started feeling more energy. I am doing level one of the sugar detox with the allowed modifications added on days of my workouts. It’s amazing how adding some sweet potato to your meals and some avocado, give you so much more energy throughout the day! Continue reading
