We're under a "Winter Weather Advisory" AGAIN. It's hard to feel motivated with the blanket of fog outside KNOWING that we're going to get walloped with snow again. To add insult to injury, we were supposed to have our kids' birthday celebration on Saturday with our extended family. I'm just bummed because I was really looking forward to having our family around.
As for the positive, it's been a really good week so far on the nutrition front. Every day I've been within my calorie range, plus I've already exceeded my exercise goal for the week. Today was Day 1 of Level 2 of the 30-Day Shred with Jillian Michaels. To say it was challenging is an understatement, but you know what? I got through it! Even a week ago I don't think I would have been able to do that. I'm starting to see some tone in my body, so that keeps pushing me forward. I'm planning on doing the same workout again tomorrow with the hope that each time it will get a little easier. I can tell that my endurance has gotten much better in the 11 days that I've been using this program.
I'm also noticing a change in my energy level. I'm accomplishing more during the day and not feeling so tired! All of these positive changes continue to give me encouragement.
