Thank goodness today's a new day! What if it had been pre-owned?

Home from trip 3 this summer! I tracked the first day but not the other 2. So, just as the scale goes up for dumb weird reasons, it occurred to me this morning that sometimes it goes down for dumb weird reasons, too. I'm reserving "judgment" on my weekend's weight outcome for a couple days, since it evened out pretty quickly after I came home from the trip last time and I kind of freaked out that my weight was up! It is not up this time, it's even down from where it was before I left, which doesn't make too much sense. Ok, enough about my relationship with gravity today!

Due to a shipping mishap, my new video didn't arrive in time for me to start it before I left for my trip, I was bummed! But, it was waiting for me when I got home, and I did it this morning. I think "Jillian Michaels for beginners" was a great prelude to the "30-day shred!" It is tough, but totally doable, though I did skip a couple reps at the end of the set here and there because I got too tired. I feel good! Glad I didn't listen to this morning's lethargy and skip the exercise. I'm starting to find I feel even more tired and yucky if I don't get any exercise! So, feeling tired and yucky is a BAD reason to skip a workout.

As I mentioned, I didn't track over the weekend like I meant to. I didn't deliberately pig out and eat waaay more than I should though! I just didn't pay that much attention. I was "camping" in my brother's backyard at his newly-purchased house, he was having a housewarming party cookout thing. I didn't drink more than 3 beers the whole trip, constant mama-duty doesn't lend itself to indulgences like that! I had a terrible night's sleep though, and that made me want to graze all day yesterday. Hard to tell the difference between legitimate hunger and wanting-comfort "hunger" sometimes!

Definitely craving a pile o veggies today though! So happy to be home, and launch back into my healthy habits!

    Welcome back. Keep being a good example for me. I've been slacking in my tracking, and have gained a pound. sigh.

    Your new video sounds great and I think you'll be right up there ready for the next one pretty quick. You'll do the whole thing then be ready for the hard one! woohoo

    Congrats on tackling your new workout this morning! Way to go! I didn't finish all 30 days but did enjoy workouts 1 & 2 of the shred - - never advanced enough to check out 3.
    I know what you mean about the scale doing dumb things - several times after having treats or more calories than I should in a day...the next morning shows me down a couple pounds instead of up! Then after several days of being good & eating within my range it goes up. I've learned to just weigh myself sporadically or if I do fall back into daily, just take it with a grain of salt. I personally don't count the number on the scale as official until I've seen it at least 3 times...then I'll log the loss.
    Enjoy your pile o veggies! :-)
