So here I am at day 4. My son woke up this morning and said, “We play exercise now?”For the past four days, I’ve woken up, changed into workout clothes and turned on the 30 Day Shred. I’ve spent 20 minutes a day doing the three six-minute circuits, and the brief warm-up/cool down.
Yesterday, I thought I was going to have to eat my own arm at work. I did the Shred and ate my usual breakfast of high-fiber cereal. I brought my coffee to work with me like I always do, and replaced it with a glass of water when I was finished with it. And I started thinking about lunch at 10:30am, an hour earlier than usual.
After lunch, I started dreaming about dinner at about 2:30pm. I hit the break room’s candy stash at 2:45pm. I resorted to the packaged peanut butter crackers at 3:30pm. What’s going on? I thought to myself, while trying not to make eye contact with co-workers as the wrapper crinkled.
Last night, I was with fellow shredders, and a friend recounted her experience. Her exact words? “By about day three I started getting hungry. Hungry like a bear hungry. Hungry like when I was on the swim team hungry.”As I was listening to her adventure on the 30 Day Shred, I ate four chocolate chip cookies.
Ok then.Clearly, my body has been woken up. Now I need to feed it.
What are your go-to high protein, high fiber, power foods? After the shred today, I ate eggs. I’m hoping I can last til noon.
