Days 1, 2 and 3 of the 30 day shred

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

My goal is to do 10 workouts on each level (3) by 11/21/08. The reason for this is I have a banquet to attend on 11/22. I started on 10/13/08, yes I added some extra days in because I can't work out every day. Wednesdays when I have class I barely have time to feed my dog so those days are out.

10/13: Day 1, level 1 I couldn't quite keep up with all of the exercises and had to take more breaks than the last time I did this. I did complete the circuit. 9 more to go!

10/14 Day 2: Had to move a mattress set, grocery shop and clean since I couldn't do so on Saturday. No shred today. I did save some money by convincing my husband that instead of eating out I would make whatever he wanted for dinner. Along with a fit butt and stomach I am working towards fit finances so this was a small victory for us. Also, in the past month I have paid $1,000 towards my huge money sucking credit card. A good portion of that was my bonus but it's less money I have to worry about later.

10/15 Day 3: Wednesday=class. I have a hair appointment at 3 and then I go straight to get some food then straight into class. I did get up earlier than normal to get some chores done around the house. See that's my working up to getting up earlier and exercising in the morning! Tomorrow I will have my exercise clothes laid out so I can get out of bed, put them on, work out then shower and get ready for work.

Every time I restart my exercise routine I am reminded that I SLEEP BETTER!! HELLO brain, do you hear me?? If I sleep better I don't struggle as much in the mornings! But every time I end up falling off the wagon and repeating the process. I know why it is, something will come up and my schedule will change and I start to put off exercising and the next thing you know it's been a week, then a month, then 3 months, etc. Working in my clinical hours on top of class, work and the rescue squad will probably throw a wrench into my plans but I'll figure that out later. One day at a time, right?

    Hey girl! I need to take a page out of your book and just do it!! You are doing awesome! Keep it up! I'm going to work harder at finding the time to keep up with Spark and get back into my exercise routine as well! Tonight is my State Manditory Test at the Station. I'm spending the afternoon studying. LOL
