I found out why I’m having trouble sleeping and then why I also wasn’t very hungry.
I got this Shapeology Burn Blend in my bulubox and gave it a try.
I took 2 capsules of it and could only sleep for 2 hours. I then couldn’t go back to bed until 11 A.M. the next morning and only for an hour! I took another serving of it before I realized that the capsules have the equivalent of 3 cups of caffeine.
But, it curbed my appetite and gave me energy for my workout the next day!
Everything in the box this month was a win (and I didn’t like the box last time I got it):
Five foods I ate
Unpictured nut butter & jelly amazeballs
Roasted my first grapefruit
Baked another recipe from Primal Cravings: gingerbread muffins but don’t have a muffin tin so used a huge ramekin.
Go-to snack: apples & PB.
Five things for my at-home “gym” all of which I’m searching for on craigslist.
Dumbbells I personally have 8 pounds hand weights and have borrowed my cousin’s 5 pound weights and adjustable weights (up to 15 pounds).
Exercise ball, which I have somewhere.
Five lessons from Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle.
I need more carbs to get rid of the “brain fog.”
I eat a lot more protein than this guide suggested. My macros are the equivalent of someone in competition mode. With that said, why am I not?
Along with articles from Metabolic Effect, I’ve come to realize I’m still recovering from starvation mode. I eat really clean most of the time, except for drinking. Refeeding (or “cheat meals,” a term I despise), like this past weekend’s pizza(s), is necessary and I should trust myself because I make healthy choices.
I have to add in some cardio again. I used to do a lot of it, but I pretty much quit because it’s boring (elliptical for 2 hours at a time anyone?) and I’ve developed foot problems.
I need to visualize myself being successful in order to be successful.

Be kind to yourself – do I really think about myself every 30 seconds?
I tracked how much I sit and even with standing at work for 5 hours or more, I sit the rest of the time. I may be sedentary active.
