Today, I woke up sore in my arms, abs, thighs and buttocks. I think this means it is working, right? I did Day Two today. It was a bit tough to get through but I did it! I already feel sore in my arms. I can't wait for tomorrow.. not, lol. In a bit I will be going for a 3 mile walk with a friend.
After the 3 mile walk, I will be going to Best Buy/Geek Squad to hand them my computer.. just fix it already! It is still overheating. *sigh* I swear if they tell me nothing is wrong I may just throw it on the throw and scream about how much piece of.. um.. I think you get the picture. Hopefully, they will be able to fix it. It will be only the third time after the screen, motherboards and 3 power cords were replaced!
Than, after the screaming at Best Buy/Geed Squad, I will be driving about 3 hours to my sisters which I will be staying for the week. I am watching her kids for the week and getting paid for it. I basically the nanny for the week. In another words, I will be MIA for the week but no worries, I will be back! Than another summer class (Creative Writing) starts on Monday!
Hope everyone has an awesome week. Keep sparkin' and keep movin' it!

Today, I weighed in at 200.4! Eek! How exciting! I think this is because I haven't done my typical exercise of walking but broke out the workout videos. Basically, I just have to lose something, anything at my sisters this week when I am gone all week.. I should be able to do this as long as I stay on track and do some kind of exercise. With two boys, one 10 years old and one 18 months, I should be doing alot of running around. Haha. Also, I am hoping to do a few walks during the week!
Last night I decided I wanted to experience the 30 Day Shred for myself. It seems like alot of people are talking about it and I want to know what it's all about. The cover says lose up to 20# in 30 days. I am not really expecting that but I hope to do 10# and 5" in 30 days. Considering I can lose 6-8# during a typical month, I don't think I am really reaching that far.
So, I looked at some message boards about it. Took measurements which I learned that I lost .50-1" in most areas (see exact numbers under "About Me" section.) Joined the team for the 30 Day Shred. And today, I brought it and tried it out.
I am not gonna lie. I struggled. It was hard. It got me sweating. But I think it will be a good challenge for me. Also, a nice change of pace. I am going to do it again tomorrow before I leave for a week. Than, I will have to break but I hope to do it on average 6 days a week when I get back. The ironic part is that it will end around the time my 100 day challenge does. What will I do when I don't have the challenges to occupy me? Hehe. Don't worry.. the first week of August, I will be gone and I hope to run and kayak regularly. Talk about mixing things up!

..and the weigh-ins.
As you probably can guess I weighed myself today. It seems that as soon as I come to terms that I need to relax about losing weight and even lowered my goal to 2# for every 10 days, I lose weight. Why is that?! It has always been like this.. so frustrating.
This morning I weighed in at 201.4 after my shower, than went to the bathroom and weighed in again at 202. How in the world did I gain weight in like 10 minutes? Oh who knows! I do know that my scale is a tease. A tease, I say. No matter what.. I did lose a pound no matter how it is put!
Anyhow, I really need to stop this madness of weighing myself everyday. I really want to know.. but in the end it is just no good. It puts me on a roller coaster. I am supposed to be on a 100-day challenge but I think I may stop that. Part of that challenge was to ONLY weigh myself every 10 days and I SOOO cheated on that. I also having been going to eat on a regular basis.. so I cheated on that too! On the upside of things, I don't seem to eat out as much. So, that is a plus!
In other news, the BBQ was postponed due to the rainy weather. It's really pouring. I was really excited for it but it is probably for the best. Now I am debating on what to do. I want to go grocery shopping but (1) do I want to go out in this weather and (2) I will be leaving for a week on Sunday. I will probably just pick a few items up like fruit that I will bring with me on Sunday. I think the plan for today will be to go grocery shopping, try out the line dancing video (I didn't get a chance yesterday), and than try to finish Unit 1 for my summer online class!
