so trial run on the exercise last week. today started the real thing.
I chose to do the workout first thing at 4am with a liter of H2O and my music at the gym. then its the Surge drink of half chocolate and half raspberry. it is very good.
I also save 2 teaspoons for my coffee. after my workout I hit the steam room and then shower. come home and have my first shake. that is working well for me. day 1 was no problem other than I am very full all the time.
I chew gum to keep the snacking cravings away. I drink a lot of water as I have not had soda or anything but water for a couple years now. I do have 2 cups of coffee with Splenda 0 calorie in it. I used to use the chocolate/raspberry creamer but now use my Surge.
the workout is a bitch. the bar hurts my arms more than my legs for the squats but its all good. the ab-wheel is the other thing that is hard for me. the hand walk outs and the ab-wheel.
I am not a body builder but am just a mid life woman looking to spend the next 45 years of my life a bit healthier than the first 45.
