I'm not sure how calm I've been, but the other part is true...
All it took was one (massive) lightning strike, and I flew off the proverbial wagon. That's right - for several days there was no Shredding and no healthy eating. It was bad. It was brutal. There was a lot of Italian food involved. (It was good.)
This weekend I made the grueling attempt to get back on track. We did yard work for 2 days, the dog got a bath (you don't think that counts as a workout? Ok, it probably doesn't but he does put up quite a fight.), Days 9 & 10 of Level 1 of the Shred were completed. As of Sunday night I'm sore all over so I guess it's working. I do think I'm going to skip my Monday weigh-in because seeing no change (or worse, a gain) will just throw me off even more. It was a bad week, I'm getting back on track, I'll do the weigh-in next Monday and hopefully be happy with what I see.
So what's the point of this update other than outing myself for having an awful fitness week? Well now that I did the 10 days of Level 1, I see no choice but to move up to the dreaded Level 2. I only have one thing to say about that:
(Oh come on. You get that reference, don't you?)
