Today as I did the P90X workout, I noticed marked improvement in my ability. I was up to the modified workout almost the entire time. There are a couple of moves that are going to take a little longer, but that is OK. I got confirmation today that I can do it. It felt great!!
My biggest obstacle now is eating enough food. I'm following the fat shredder nutrition plan. It is just more food that I'm used to eating. I remember joking with a coworker some time ago. She was nursing her new baby and said it was difficult to keep her calories up. She, of course, was eating fresh fruit and vegetables and lean meats like we all should. I laughed and told her she just wasn't trying hard enough and I could give her a few pointers. Now, I understand her dilemma.
I'm making meals that fit with the plan and serving them to 65MD. I haven't actually told him that he's eating according to the fat shredder plan but I suspect he knows. We eat the same thing and he knows what I'm doing. He has been totally fine with everything I've made so far and I am having a blast making real food for us. I'm not controlling his portions as I am mine. He doesn't have the same weight problem I do. This is the way we should be eating anyway.
Yesterday, I decided to make some whole wheat bread for us. I opted for a recipe that still had a little white flour in it. It was about 3/4 whole wheat to 1/4 white. For 65MD's sake, I thought I should ease in to it. Whole wheat flour has a stronger taste to me, and I didn't want to put him off since he has been so supportive.
The bread turned out great. I had my allotted one piece. He ate three and made himself stop saying he could eat the whole pan. I asked him then what he thought of the stronger taste and he said he liked it. I told him about the second recipe and my thinking that we should work up to it. He said to go for it. So, as soon as we eat the rest of the bread from yesterday. I'm on to the full whole wheat recipe. Stay tuned to see how that turns out.
