Day 5: *sigh*

Today went well.  I didn't want to work out (do i ever???) but I did it!  Five days of the 30 Day Shred... it's the first day I felt like I wasn't going to collapse and die.  It's still super tough, but I'm getting tough too :)  I still can't do a push-up, but I'm excited I've done five days in a row!

Here's what today looked like:

Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs, small baked potato (diced up in the eggs), 2 T shredded cheddar, 16 oz water, 8 oz chocolate milk

Lunch: nothing, I wasn't hungry because I ate breakfast at like 10:30am

Dinner: boneless skinless chicken breast cooked on my George Foreman grill (it tasted like cardboard), half a large sweet potato mashed with pumpkin pie spice, real vanilla and 1 tsp brown sugar, water

Work Out: 20 minutes of 30 Day Shred

I was craving chocolate so I had 8oz of chocolate milk and I was REALLY craving Cafe Rio, but stayed away.  It was hard.  The kids are gone for the weekend and I always treat myself to Cafe Rio once when they're gone (they don't like Cafe Rio).  *sigh*

I'm feeling pretty good about this 6 month thing!  I'll feel a whole lot better if I see something good when I take my measurements on Monday morning!  It's only 7:30pm so I may need a snack later.  I wonder if Nutella is a good after-exercise protein....

Way to go on the 5 days in a row. I've seen bits and pieces of that workout and I would have tossed the thing through the window after day 1.
Have you tried soaking the chicken breast in fat free Italian dressing or something like that before cooking it on the George?
I have to add a thank you for the 6 in 6. It is doing wonders for my motivation.

It was the first time I've used a GF grill... My mom got it for me for Christmas... I think I'll have to get creative with it or just bake the chicken like I used to.

And this 6 in 6 is motivating me too! :)

It's motivating me too! And I think that as long as you eat it in moderation, nutella is an awesome treat!!
