I’ve been slowly chugging along with the Super Shred diet. It’s essentially a plan that keeps you eating small amounts throughout the whole day to keep your metabolism up and your blood sugar levels stable. I know it’s only been 2 days, but it’s tough to eat so often! I’m the kind of person who will default to eating only one or two HUGE meals a day if I stop trying. So more food, less often. This is a whole new way of eating for me. I’m not naturally a snacker, and this diet encourages snacks. I love the smoothie recipes and eating lots of carbs for breakfast. YUM!
Here’s my beautiful ‘Meal 3’ Salad. Look at those veggies!
Another huge part of the plan is the horrible E word. Exercise. Lots of it, almost everyday for about 45 minutes or so. I mean, I know exercise is important BUT WHYYYYY?! Yesterday I sweated my ass off for 45 minutes doing intervals on the treadmill. Today I huffed and puffed my way around the neighborhood with the puppies and the husband and burned around 320 (per my HRM) in the process.
I’m still feeling very positive! It’s just going to require a lot of commitment to keep my meals prepped and on time!
