day twenty-three

i've been really enjoying this program so far!  i'm impressed i've made it to day 23 without giving up or cheating in a major way.

i have, however, noticed that on workout days, i need to consume some more calories in order to have enough energy to get through the workout.  i renewed my 30 day program but added some of the protein bars too so i'll have something on-hand that will be able to provide me with the right protein and nutrients to keep kicking @$$ at the gym.

today was one of those days.  i had my supplements in the morning, my morning shake, lunch, almonds in the afternoon, but by the time i got home to change to go to the gym, i just knew i needed more food.  i didn't have any great choices, so i just ate a "protein" granola bar that was in the cupboard.  it held over my hunger pangs, but i didn't have the extra drive to kill my workout.  so, now i know, i need more (good) food to fuel my body.

lesson:  always, always listen to your body.
