Cutting – Day 1

Leave a comment

Today I started the cutting phase of Thinner Leaner Stronger by Michael Matthews.

I have had his Shredded Chef on my kindle for a long while and got this to go with it a few months back. I’ve read bits a pieces – but over the weekend I really got into the meat and potatoes of it and decided I wanted to follow it. So today was cutting day UNO… and drumroll please… I have a headache! Ugh! Headaches make my willpower diminish, but so far I am holding strong.

What I’ve learned on day one is that I am a fasting workout person. While I was making my coffee at 4am I ate a bowl of yogurt with my homemade CocoNUT granola and headed for the gym at 5:30 drinking a pre-workout drink. By the time I got to work before 8am my stomach was having some serious GI distress and I was to drink my post workout shake. Tomorrow my plan is to workout in my usual “fasting state”. I also ordered a vitamin bundle from Michael Mathews supplements brand Legion Athletics – I’m excited to try them on top of the macro counting/workouts!

Here’s to day 2!
