Dream Team Challenge – Day 7

Today is the end of the first week of our new 30 Day Dream Team. 

I’ll be honest, I could have been more committed to eating better today.  I didn’t have a good day.  However, because I didn’t have a good day, doesn’t mean I can’t finish off the week good. 

I went to the gym and trained legs tonight which was good.  I pb’d my deadlift @ 65.4kg tonight. SO HAPPY! It’s slowly inching up in weight which is awesome.  I’ve also finished work for the week until Monday. YAY! 

Jade hosted a live feed today on Facebook where she spoke about a lot of things, but one in particular drew her attention and she set us our daily task as the following:

WHAT IS INTERMITTENT FASTING?

We were required to post one fact or comment so others can learn its benefits.  In our little team, we like to call them “Cleanse Days”.  Literally doing a cut and paste from the thread there are some benefits of including fasting days in your regime.  (Please consult a health care professional before just jumping into not eating for 2 days straight)

  • Proteins start to be broken down and old cells get cleared out. All the junk goes. 
  • Help with sparing and preserving muscle tissue (lean mass)
  • While weight loss or weight maintenance is seen as a primary benefit from intermittent fasting, the practice has demonstrated efficacy for reducing abdominal fat (visceral fat) and, as a result, an improvement in insulin sensitivity and overall cardiovascular health.

These are only a couple of benefits.  I cleanse to restart my system.  Sometimes is easy, some times it’s not but all the time, it’s worth it.

I’d you want to find out more, hit me up with comment or send me an email at enquiries@candiceashley.com.au

I almost fell asleep again so I am going to leave it here.  Goodnight eveyone.
