summer recap and 30 Day Slim Down
Wednesday, August 25, 2010
Summer was a struggle with everyone home. That pretty much sums it up. I made way to many excuses for myself. My eating was decent some days and other days... well, it got the "screw it" attitude." I started at 132 and I'm at 131.5. I'd drop a few and gain a few so I'm pretty much right where I was. I never gave up but it was definitely hard. I did get all my cardio in but a little over a month or so ago I stopped doing any strength training. I feel much flabbier now than I did at the beginning of summer.
The kids started school on Monday which means I am out of excuses. I decided to throw myself back into it full force and do Jillian Michael's 30 Day Slim Down Program. I bought the two DVD's I was missing and got started. Monday was good and I wasn't sore. Woke up Tuesday sore and was really sore last night. Today is No More Trouble Zones and I am nervous about it. I know I can do it but nervous just the same because I don't know what to expect. Not gonna lie - the days there are 2 videos/workouts scare the heck out of me! One day at a time I guess.
I need to go to preplan some meals and go to the grocery store, I really need to focus on lunches. As long as I'm prepared then good choices are easy. I also need to figure out some healthy, filling snacks. I've been going over my calories but the majority of time it's because I feel really hungry - my body feels. I seem to be having low blood sugar issues. I'm hoping with better and more balanced snacks that this will help.
I want to give a special thank you to SWEATPEA0214 for every "like" and comment, I've felt like I've had my own personal little cheerleader even when I was struggling and all that support really, REALLY helped! Thanks you so much! She's an absolutely inspiration!!!
I'm going to try and do better about updating... not sure about the video blogging. After my last one I got a rude comment that I deleted and don't know if I want to deal with that. Hard enough putting it all out there without being criticized for it.
Alright, G out! Have a great week!
