4 days down

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

Yesterday, after working a chaotic *funfilled* 12 hour plus shift, I came home at 8pm and promptly gulped down dinner in less than two minutes flat. My wonderful husband is such a keeper.... grilled chicken, corn on the cob, cilantro-flavored beans. mmm mmm good! Hard to resist, but really...my dish was rinsed and in the dishwasher by the three minute mark. I need to learn to cut that out! The gulping that is... it could of been worse... it could have been a big greasy pizza.

Let's rewind a bit.... work sort of sucked, I was too busy to even think about eating, so I was well within my calorie range. My plan was to come home from work, change into my exercise close, work my ass off and then eat a reasonable meal and maybe have a glass of wine. Didn't quite happen that way.

How's a woman supposed to Shred on a full stomach? The other day I nearly puked on an empty stomach, let alone jumping around with a gut full of chicken and corn. I thought about it a bit and began feeling a bit guilty. Screw it I'm doing it--- the food hadn't even had time to hit the bottom of my stomach anyway. I didn't even bother to change into my workout clothes (scrubs are baggy..no big deal). I soon regretted this fact after the jumping jacks began and I realized that it felt like I had two canteloupes bouncing off my chin. There really is no way to hold onto your boobies and do a proper jumping jack. At any rate, I made it through the entire 27 minutes... yaye me. I didn't cramp, puke or pass out. I made it.

It still isn't pretty... but i have 4 days down (it might even be getting a little easier).

    Your blogs are so funny!! I felt the same way doing the Shred. It does get easier...right before you move on to the next level..lol. No, seriously it does get better and better. I slept with a heating pad many nights, and saran wrapped bags of frozen veggies to my knees (I'm too cheap to buy ice packs)a few times. It really helps. Keep up the good work!!
