The nice girl is still out to lunch.

School work is done. A third of the required books in this pic. Unbelievable amount of material to cover. I have to learn how to reset the date on the camera. One problem at a time.

Better and better. Lost a bit of weight, feel better, healthy eating...Mom on program! Even better news.

All around advancements, jumping jacks are on board. Kick butts, are dooable now. Workout 4 done.

I am off to watch Biggest Loser! I tivod it. Hugs!

I can do the whole thing...but during the cardio I die. My lower calves, right above achilies tendon, and the plantar tendon on the bottom of the foot. OWWWW! I paused Jillian and tightened my shoes up, it helped but still hurt.

It is the jump rope and butt kicks. I had to modify with a grapevine and a high kickback to keep my heart rate up. I am sorry Jillian, but some tendons might give way! They will get stronger eventually, but tendons strengthen slower and I am not going to chance ripping one in two.

200 lbs of big girl coming down on little size 7.5 feet!

Hmmm, I think I have an old Billy Blanks tape around here somewhere's...I should just go check out Craigslist to see if anyone gave up and is selling their Jillian dvd's! or their PX90? I heard I should be at a 7% body fat before I attempt PX90, lol.

Right now, I am not really tracking my weight, but my bodyfat. I want to be at 22%, which is supposed to be average. I am thinking that average for women is anything but. Some women hold 33% and look awesome! Curvy in the right places. For me, I am built like Jillian, no hips, I looked like a skinny boy until I was 20 or so. I'll get to 20% body fat first.

I am at 43% now, so 23% to lose. About 1% a month, lol....i am looking at a two year battle. But I am gonna put on muscle, so I will be fighting it in both directions. Make sense? Hmmmmm.


Wooooooooo! Jillian still scares the crud out of me.

My favorite quote from Run Fatboy Run! "I'm not fat. I'm unfit"

Well, I did my second JM30DS! The first was several weeks ago...just to see if I would survive it. I did so I joined the group of converts.

I survived yet again, one whole level 1. But here is the kicker! The first time I couldn't do but a couple of jumping jacks. They didn't hurt, I just couldn't no strength to get my bits and pieces all moving together in one direction (up) and then to come down and quickly go back up? LOL...somethings were shaking the way I didn't want them to and never will again!!!! This time I did all the jumping jacks...the jumping rope and butt kick are still really hard...but I figured out that on the jumping rope thing if i hold my knees close together...they support each other and i can jump better without moving around so much. Also, holding my bits with my arms helps! lol

"I am sick of being a nearly man!" I won't be getting up at 6am, no way...some things I just don't do. I am smart enough to know that would cause immediate rebellion. I also can totally plan in a workout during the day.

Well, I am off to take some valarian root and aspirin. Trying to head off the muscle soreness. I am also gonna drink a pot of tea and do stretches every 2 hours.

I thought I was fat when I was 18. I talk myself out of healthy stuff. I eat an occasional bad thing. I tell myself that I will cheat this little bit, then I will be good. It isn't about being good or bad. Well, I looked at when I cheat...When I am home, bored (studying), and want something yummy and full of texture. Gooey, crunchy, savory, etc. I can take normally healthy stuff and turn it unhealthy. Cream of Wheat, with butter, honey, dates, and blueberries....it is healthy to a point. But I have two cups of it. I go through trends of happily eating my portioned food...then I just want the satisfaction of being full. I don't feel full for hours...then I am dying because I stuffed myself with all kinds of things.

I am tuning out to the feeling I want. Then it comes crashing in and I feel crappy. I don't want to exercise. I don't feel well. I don't want to study. I don't want to do anything but stew in my self-pity. When I was young, I didn't care about these things...I ate what I ate. That was all.

But I was always doing something...I need more energy to get to where I was when I had that energy to do it. Catch 22.

I can't see what I thought I saw. I thought I was fat when I was 18.

    You are accomplishing so much right now. You're nearing the end of nursing school - HUGE accomplishment. Nursing school requires so much of your time, energy, and concentration. That alone earns you a big gold star of accomplishment.

You're taking the time to blog on this site - definitely taking care of yourself there.

I've been in the same cycle many times. I find that if I look, I can see at least one thing that I've done on the positive side of caring for me....then, I try to focus on that one thing.

It's ok to not accomplish everything at one time....just chip away at it a little at a time.

I know you can do it.
