The night before I made a mixture of the aloe and tea drink, which I stored overnight in the fridge. As soon as I woke up I had one glass of this and then started my morning workout. I don’t feel confident enough to go to the gym so I decided to try the FitStar app. I’ve been using it for the past few weeks and I find it enjoyable with enough variation to keep me interested. It is also cheaper than a year’s subscription to a gym and since I already had a FitBit watch I figured: why not? I’ll probably do a review on the app in the future.
After my workout I drank another glass of my aloe and tea cocktail, then my shake and ate an apple since I still felt a little peckish. So far I feel alert and I am able to concentrate on my work better than usual.
One of my biggest issues is getting enough hydration so the aloe drink definitely helps me drink enough water. Right now the weather where I’m from isn’t so bad but last week it was very hot and I had a headache from not drinking enough. The aloe drink makes it easier to drink water as I only need a cupful per 500ml just to get rid of the funny aftertaste in the tap water here.
