JM 30 Day Shred Day 1

Monday, October 03, 2011

So I started JM 30 day shred today!! @6am after taking DH to work I managed to keep myself from going back to bed and played the DVD on my laptop and went for it while watching the morning news. Showered afterwards and felt great! For breakfast I had 1 piece of multigrain toast with a bit of nutella and greek yogurt (I loveeeee that stuff) with my coffee of course.

Day 1 emoticon
29 to go!!

*10 Reasons Why I WANT to lose the LBS*

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

So I have seen YOOVIE and others post their reasons for wanting to lose the weight, I thought I would start off with 10 reasons and will add more as they occur to me.

1. My health, I must be healthy in order to take care of my family!!

2 Tired of hearing people say "she has a pretty face but..." you know the rest

3. Let's face it Im not getting any younger and I know my metabolism will slow down and make it more difficult later if I keep putting it off.

4. Sick of double digit pants size!!!

5. Must be a good role model for my som.

6. Just plain vanity I guess

7 Want clothes to fit better

8 Keep myself from having gallbladder attacks

9. Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired.

10. Because I know I can do it!!

Ugh, What is wrong with ME??? (Pics)

Sunday, September 25, 2011

It's official weekends are BAD when it comes to self control. I'm so frustrated because I'm always telling my DH and DS how important self control is in all aspects of life right? I feel like I can't even follow my own advice!!

So Friday night we went to a wedding, I was thrilled to fit into a size 8 dress, I decided to eat a light supper before going since I knew the food at the reception was not going to be very healthy. Well needless to say I should have skipped my light supper because I ended up eating at the wedding (very small portions) but still talk about lack of self control!!

I also knew I would probably have 1 or 2 alcoholic beverages Well I had 3!!! Yikes!!

Again where is my self control????

So that was Friday. Yesterday (Saturday) We went to the colorado rapids soccer game, again I know stadium food is not always the greatest when trying to lose weight, so I made delicious veggie burgers for us to eat before the game. Well I still ended up eating a hot dog and had a beer

Ughhhh what is wrong with me????
Is it normal to feel this way?
Will I ever have the self control I so often preach about?

    Remember, there are times where you just have to give your body what it craves. You are doing super so you need to reward yourself every so often. I just tend to reward myself way too often! Don't be so hard on yourself.

    I'm sure you already know the answer to your question. There is NOTHING wrong with you. You may be setting yourself up for failure. Weddings are for enjoying and celebrating. Games are for cheering and hot dogs. Let those events be what they are and accept that you will join the fun. Then get back on track when you return to you regular life. There are some things that SHOULD be controlled with tools and strategies. For example, I had difficulties with alcohol and had to get help. That is a ritual I no longer entertain. But..........there are so many times in life that self control is unnecessary. Isolated events and happenings in our lives are to be enjoyed. They don't happen every day and putting high expectations on ourselves at these times is unnecessary and defeating.

Be nice to yourself. You sound like you have made great progress towards good health and try to model good values for your family. Take it from a recovering perfectionist, it is permissible to be human.

With much encouragement,
Leslie emoticon

I guess its a good thing but I am in pain. I have had a great week I have been to the gym everyday so far,my water intake is great,my calorie intake has been a little on the high side but that's ok. I went to Zumba class today and tuesday,I will be on a field trip with ds tomorrow. We have a wedding to go to tomorrow'yup on a friday,I got a really cute dress to wear! Size 8 btw! No more double digits! DH said the dress looks great!:-) well that's all for now:-)


Is it just me or did this week fly by? I want to be sore!!

Friday, September 16, 2011

Ok so its Friday morning again, this week went by sooooo fast. I did well on the eating side of things but not so much on the workouts!! I have been reading some blogs where fellow sparkers have sore achy muscles, I want that!! I want to really push myself, back when I started this journey I had days where I could hardly move after a great workout. Now not so much emoticon. I think its time for the Jillian Micheals DVD's again! Today I will go to my Zumba class!
