Gross Guilty Feeling
As I lay here in bed, after what was going to be a great day calorie wise, I feel like kicking myself for rumaging through the cupbboards for SUGAR! I binge before bed and it's awful. When I was at my heaviest I did this frequently and it stoppe... Read more

Gonna have to face it, I'm addicted to gum....
Ummm I have a problem. I am addicted to Bubblegum flavored gum. Is this going to be a problem? There aren't hardly any calories to a stick of gum, but if I chew 10 pieces or more a day is that damaging my dental health in anyway. Oh god. How I l... Read more
Tired of feeling so GUILTY
I am tired, mentally, of feeling so guilty about everything I put in my mouth. I count calories but 1200 calories doesn't go very far even when you eat healthy foods. I can't help but obsess over every calorie which stresses me, and when I'm st... Read more
Day 24 done
I am having a really hard time making it to Day 30. It's painful (not actually) but the same moves, everyday, Jillian's annoying voice ugh.

Then just 5 more times... Read more
Day 23 done
Day 23 of the dreaded shred is done now :) And thankfully so. I really hate Jillian and if I were to recommend one thing to someone is to MEMORIZE the sets and exercises so you don't have to listen to her, you can turn the radio on. She is SO an... Read more
What a gift first thing in the am!
So I have been giving it my all, and apparently my body found some way to tell me to F off.
I woke up with a UTI. Just wonderful. On top of it all my job requires me to "man the front desk" so I basically had no choice but to call in sick unle... Read more
Back to Basics
So I finished Day 21! HURRAY!
I actually went back and did Level 1 to switch it up this am. I added weights to some of the cardio moves and heavy weights for some of the other moves. I didn't find it much easier to be honest LOL. If anything ... Read more
Day 20 of shred....want to kill Jillian!
So it's day 20 of the shred, and Jillian Michaels is on my last nerve LOL
She's driving me nuts! When I turn her down and turn the radio on, I don't keep form as well as I have to keep checking to make sure I am on the same exercise.
I am... Read more
Ugh I fell off the wagon and then it ran over me!
So yesterday was a great day, I did my shred, and ran 5k my first one ever! So excited. Had a healthy supper but what happend next I have no idea. There is no way to even begin to track the calories I consumed. Nacho's with meat and cheese, vegg... Read more

Shred Day 17
So today I was so bored with level2 I tried level3 and it wasn't too bad considering. I am not sure I can do level 3 (out of boredom for the next 12 days) so I was thinking if after 7 or 8 days of level 3 I get bored can I switch between level 1... Read more
