Daily Wellness Journal – Day 4

My Daily Wellness Journal brings together information, resources, and events on my health, fitness, and positive lifestyle journey. For me, daily wellness consists of personal development, proper nourishment, performance supplements, and working out. I am currently running 6 – 7 days a week and doing the rest of my workouts in Beachbody On Demand as time permits (while raising two teenage daughters on my own). My current workout program is Job 1 with Jennifer Jacobs

Personal Development

Read Day 264 of Billy Graham’s “Day By Day Devotional” in the YouVersion app

Read Day 297 in the Bible Project “One Story That Leads to Jesus” Bible reading plan

Listened to Joel Osteen’s message, “Pass The Test

Supplements

Every morning, I drink Beachbody Performance Energize whether I am working out or not. Every day, I drink Shakeology and today’s shake is Plant-Based Cafe Latte.

I don’t get paid to drink Shakeology but I do get a 25% discount as a Team Beachbody Coach. I have been drinking it just about every day since March 2oth 2009. I drink it because of the ingredients and the quality of the ingredients.

 

Cafe Latte Plant-Based Shakeology

Because I eat a plant-based diet, on a daily basis, I take sublingual B12 from Trader Joe’s. Every other day, I take zinc with vitamin C from Whole Foods and a Nature Made iron tablet.

Beginning on June 22nd, I started taking St. John’s Wort before I start my day, ashwagandha before running and rhodiola after running followed by holy basil and nettle later. I started this routine after reading the article “Herbs to Maximize Your Athletic Performance“.

Workout

Today’s Elite HRV app reading using the Polar H10 transmitter: 9

I attribute my ability to recover and workout every day in large part to sleep. It is nourishment just like my plant based diet. Here is my sleep score from last night and into this morning from the Polar Flow Sleep Report.

Since we are having so much monsoon rain and thunderstorms were predicted, I did Job 1 Week 1 Day 5 Finish Stronger: Arms, Shoulders, Legs in Beachbody On Demand. You can get streaming access here.

Running workout with the Polar Vantage V: 29:00 run near my house. I got ready to run and went out the door and the rain just started to pick up by the time that I finished, so I lucked out. It was like déjà vu all over again as I finished the last half mile of the run where the rain did the same thing yesterday!
