I am half way through my 10 power plate sessions. This morning, my trainer said she thought I was getting stronger. But it is not something I noticed on a day-to-day basis, although the post-workout aches are definitely subsiding. Still, I am not completely sold on it.  


For the past five weeks, I have woken up with a headache the day after my power plate session. Since this supposedly stimulates the lymphatic system, which flushes toxins out of the body, I don’t think I am drinking enough water post-workout. I am either flushing but not replacing the water loss, thus getting dehydrated. Or the toxins are not getting sufficiently flushed.     swarovski_toilet


I also noticed that I have been having a ton more breakouts the past several weeks. It could be a coincidence, but I have been trying anything and everything to manage it and nothing in my extensive acne arsenal seems to be working. Since the skin is partly an organ of toxin excretion, I am beginning to think that maybe I am not drinking enough water to sufficiently detox, which is causing all sorts of havoc with my skin.   


I plan on consuming gallons of water today. Luckily, we stocked up on toilet paper over the weekend.
