Hi Spark Friends!
WOW, Jillian is killing me, I actually cried through all the jumping jacks in set two! I persisted though and actually finished today (yesterday I come up about 4 minutes short just couldn't finish). Ouch do I hurt though!
But today was hard for other reasons… more and more to do with my marriage and all that crap. Today I feel, “one day I will learn!”
“Imagine holding the amount of weight you want to lose as dumbbells in your hands. Then, visualize yourself walking, dropping the weights little by little and eventually running--completely free of the added weights. How relieved will you feel (emotionally and physically) once that extra weight really is gone forever?”
I have seen them do this on the biggest loser, and it was the most awesome thing to watch. I know how it feels though; I have dropped 160 already and have another 140 to go, so I know how it feel to drop it gradually and in bug hunks.
It feels good!
Write 1-3 sentences about the highlights (or most challenging situation) from the past day...
My challenge today was just to not go crazy! The day started pretty good, got up and did my 30 day shred, then it kinda went downhill from there. I didn't work; I didn't do much else either…
Cried a lot today...
1,760 Calories: SHAMEFULL!
220 Carbs: SHAMEFULL!
75 Fat: VERY SHAMEFULL!
My values were SHAMEFUL today! Please don’t even look… please… I only posted them because I refuse to not hold myself accountable. I am so totally ashamed of myself today. I let stress get to me, and I really acted like I did not care today!
I walked 2833/5000 steps today.
20 min - Jillian's 30 Day Shred

Calories Burned = 501

Band clocked total of 2747 burned (with BMR) with my deficit being 987.
Not a good day!

I will keep getting up every day with a new day planned and keep moving forward.
I will NOT let this day beat me!
