I honestly had troubles sleeping last night. A mixture of excitement and nervousness consumed my mind, causing me to wake up several times throughout the night, mixed in with dreams of how my video production and getting everything set up was in complete disarray. Well, workout #1 is completed, felt awesome to do so, but no doubt, looking forward to upgrading and improving the “exercise studio” to every ones viewing pleasure.
I wanted to post the video to todays workout, so anyone who is curious what the 21 Shred Workout looks like, can watch in its entirety. After today, all the daily videos will be on our members page at http://www.whatsyour21.com and click on “shred heads”. I am surprised (also concerned) that my legs are a bit wobbly now that the workout is completed. Might have some soreness tomorrow that I have to work through.
Now that the workout is complete, I will finish my large glass of water, enjoy a hot cup of black coffee, then off to the Co-op to get some organic produce for my first meal at 11am. Still not completely sure of its ingredients, a lot depends on what’s available there and looks ripe. My goal is to make a green smoothie with almond/coconut milk, 1/2 avocado, 1/2 banana, spinach or parsley, hemp seeds, and maybe some mango or pineapple.
Anyone not familiar with intermittent fasting, remember to first:
- welcome the feelings of hunger. Science has already proven the benefits of this program for our bodies and mind, so this state of hunger was something modern man and women experienced and adapted to.
- Don’t calorie count! Remember, you are eating for only a 8 hour period, eat throughout the day foods that are low on the glycemic index (all explained in my book).
- Stay away from “set meals” throughout the day. Eat only as your body requires, just grazing on foods at intermittent periods. Your last meal of the day is your feast!
