Day 438: Shredder Sunday Episode 2 - Video Q&A With Lilla!

G'day Shredders,

Welcome to Shredder Sunday: Episode 2.

Lilla, our resident Hawaiian Shredder asks me via video about my favorite reward meal. In answering this question I go into why a "reward meal" is better terminology than "cheat meal". I also touch on where I went wrong with my "reward meals" in the 6 years I failed to get back into shape.

Thanks for your question Lilla!

Chicken pasta??
Never heard that in Italy!!! LOL
But you are right about the cheat /reward meal.
I know is just a "word-word thing-game" but words have a very powerfull impact on our subconscious mind.
It depends how much you love yourself I guess...
A "cheat" meal could be just some sneaky an hamburger and fries,,

But a "Reward Meal" ohohohohoho MAN.. I REWARD myself!

Smoke salmon and caviar on a bed of ice and lemom slices.

hand made pasta with fresh basil and fresh tomatoes guarnished with pure extra virgin olive oil

Kilet Stake grilled with rosemary

Fresh salad and tomatoes

Frozed yogurt with vanilla

Buon appetito!

Lilla said...

Ohhh Massi, that all sounds so yummy! You're right - "cheat" reminds of junk food and "reward" makes me think of quality foods.

Adam, thanks for answering my question!!! That was a great video and explanation. It's always nice learning little personal details about you, like what your fav meal is or watching you sing karaoke. It makes it more fun & personal.
Love, Lilla

Adam, great video! I enjoyed it and thanks to Lilla for the question. Always good to see her cute face on video :-)

Second, a question: My provider for my blog changed DNS entries (and I know they work on my ISP) but I have not had a comment in 2 days, so I'm curious if you guys are having trouble reaching my blog. Let me know. Thanks!

Living to Feel Good said...

I like the idea of a reward day instead of a cheat day. That was one thing I struggled with in the past was eating to many sugary treats and cheese which lead to guilt. I can honestly say I have reward days now, but I think you have to be in the right frame of mind to overcome the cheat days. I think because I put so many quality foods in my system that I am satisfied, and I don't even miss the garbage anymore.

Found your blog through another blogger, and your progress is amazing. It is great to see you maintained it way past your 100 days. Congrats! :)

I've missied a few days - sorry about not being able to submit pics...called out of town unexpectedly. What is happening with the new Shredders Council mission? Please fill me in!I don't want to miss out!

Lilla said...

I did notice that I couldn't read the 1/19 post on your blog until today so maybe be something's up with provider.

Michael said...

Lilla, thanks for the input. I have a note in to support because overnight the IP address changed (as it should) and that's probably why you couldn't read the 1/19 post, but at least you go to it today. That makes me feel better.

Adam Waters said...

Hi Massi,

Your reward meals sound great. We gotta line up a dual reward day soon!

Adam Waters said...

Hi Lilla, thank you for sending me that question, its great to be able to interact with fellow Shreders! We can heaps more things like this in the future!

Adam Waters said...

Hi Michael, I just made acomment on your blog, it seemed to go through ok.

Adam Waters said...

Hi "Living to feel good", you definitely hit the nail on the head. That held me back for a long time, overdosing on junk and calling it a "free day" instead of having 1 reward meal.

Great blog too!

Adam Waters said...

Hi Diane, if u can send me your Day 84 pics I'll definitely update your profile. I think we'll go with the ShredderSphere for accountability for now, if u want to join just let me know!

Mike Groom said...

Adam, great reply and great idea! I have tended to use cheat meal, but after seeing this I think that reward meal is much more appropriate.

Cheers, Mike

Massimiliano said...

You are welcome anytime Adam!
Lets have a rewarding lunch or dinner after you come back from the USA, so I have time to get beck in shape...!
