Why does she hate me? She doesn't even know me! Okay okay, so it wasn't that bad. Really, during the first session of The Shred I thought I might die. Alas, I'm still here. And post, kick-butt, workout I tried out a little trick a friend told me long ago. I chugged (okay, I didn't chug, but I drank quickly) a glass of milk because I was told it replaces the Miocene that my muscles used up during the workout so I will be less sore tomorrow. I remember doing it loooong ago, you know, when I used to work out and I remember it working. Here's hoping!
I've never been a journal-er, in fact I quite dislike it. Please, oh please, don't tell my students that. I'd have no credibility! However, I have seen so many studies that show people are more successful in losing weight when they log what they eat. I'm going to give it a try.

Green tea with mandarin
Low fat plain Greek yogurt with a squirt of honey and a handful Bear Naked fruit and nut granola (yum!)
More green tea with mandarin
Romaine and spinach salad with cucumbers, carrots, and balsamic vinegar dressing
One half of a ruby red grapefruit
Fat free vanilla Greek yogurt with a squirt of honey and another handful of Bear Naked fruit and nut granola. *note, the vanilla yogurt wasn't that good and I would have rather had the plain one instead.
Post workout 'snack'-
Chicken breast (marinated in Italian dressing--so good!)
Fresh steamed spinach
Short grain brown rice
(butter and salt on both spinach and rice--but not too much!)
I have my eye on another grapefruit.
And I drank water during the day-but not enough, I'm upping my intake tomorrow.
Okay, so I did one day. Twenty nine to go. I. CAN. DO. THIS.
