Day 4: Beast Mode – Salad Style

Standard

Today was a pretty good day other than the -22 temps and -50 wind chills.  ugh.  My workout with Ben was good.  If there’s one thing that challenged me today, it was my hunger.  I ate on plan all day and I was constantly hungry.  It was like I would eat and my system would forget I had eaten five minutes later.  This wasn’t a “oh you’re telling yourself your hungry” or “you’re bored and your brain says to eat” kind of hungry..this wasn’t emotional. It was CARNAL to say the least.  This is a good sign that it’s all coming together.  My body is starting to amp up the way it needs in order to burn fat and start building up new muscle.

When I left Rejuv after my workout, I stopped by the local Grocery and picked up a decent sized salad I fashioned from their faboosh salad bar.  Romaine, Spinach, Mixed Greens, Mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, egg, chicken…oh the list keeps going.  At this point, my hunger was ROARING.  You could hear my stomach.  When I got back to work, I grabbed a fork and knife, sat at my desk and this occurred.

 

I swear if anyone or anything had come between that salad and I, it would have been grim.
