Good for you - sounds like you have made some major changes in so many ways!

I do think the daily weigh-ins help. I know some people don't think you should weigh in that often, or it's not right for some folks b/c they obsess, etc. but I find it helps b/c you won't just gain 6 pounds without noticing.

I started using "The Google 15" to track my weight as well. I log in my daily weights and it plots them on a graph, tracking my average. That way random days where I weigh in higher than normal (but am back down the next day) don't mess with my head as much, but when my average starts moving up, the program is quick to say "Danger! You're moving away from your goal!" I really like it.

Thanks, I think I am nervous about maintenance because I have gotten close to my goal before and then went on a "break" for a little bit and gained 20 pounds back in a year. But this time I do feel different because, for one thing, I am actually going to reach my goal and have that sense of accomplishment. And then I also feel like I am in a different mindset. Before I was losing weight because I hated myself and this time I am doing it because I care about myself. It feels a lot more positive. So I guess I shouldn't be afraid of maintenance. I want to follow your lead and stay on Spark and keep accountable though, that seems like it will really help.

Thanks Lindsey for the encouragement!

I do feel that when things are going normally I would have been able to keep up with the videos a little more easily. Things seem so crazy right now! But really the videos are 10 minutes or less, so I'm not sure I have any good excuse!

I decided not to worry about the catch-up with the ones I missed, and to just jump back in with today's schedule. So Week 2 was not so hot, I will just concentrate on Week 3.

Don't be scared of maintenance. I feel it is easier than the loss part, simply because now the exercise (in my case running) has become so routine for me that I miss it when it's gone. That is such a change from my "before" life! And during the loss I was super calorie-counting conscious, whereas now I have the freedom to eat healthy but not obsess.

Anyway, you're obviously committed, so you probably have no need to worry at all! You're keeping up so well with your plan - congrats!! :)

Thank you! I know it is probably a lot harder to stay focused when you are in maintenance mode like you are, but you seem to be doing pretty darn good even if you missed a couple bootcamp videos. Maintenance scares me a bit so it is nice to have you around to show me that it is possible!

Lindsey you're doing so great!!!!!!!!

I admit I have not kept up with my boot camp over the last couple of days. :(

I ran Friday but didn't do my vid, and yesterday I didn't do anything - was crazy busy with my biggest one's birthday party, showing our car to possible buyers, and then went up to L.A. for a little satellite 15-year high school reunion! Busy day, and a good day, but no exercise. :( And a late night so no early morning run or shred today. Hopefully I'll fit some toning vids in later to start week 3 off right.

Awesome! I'll definitely have to try it out!

Hubby had another early work day today, so I couldn't run - then I couldn't Shred either, b/c my poor littlest one was up vomiting at 4:30 a.m.! I'm feeling lazy but getting my boot camp vid in while he naps.

Thanks!! I really love Ripped. I have only done levels 1 and 2, and attempted level 3 once but it was crazy hard. Level 4 must be insane. If you like Shred you will like this one, it is the same 3-2-1 format.

I took the weekend off to rest my knee and belly. Took a short run this morning in my new shoes and avoided hills. My knee feels pretty good. Doubled up on bootcamp vids today and will again tomorrow to make up for the ones I missed on the weekend.

Yeah I really felt that one! I was worried about today's workout because it was my glute that was injured but luckily I didn't feel anything except the normal burn from the workout.

I think some time next week I am going to get some Jillian back into my workouts. I was trying to think which one would be easiest to start with but "easy" and "Jillian" don't really go together!

That's a lot of butt-blasting for just 5 minutes!

Level 2 of the Shred is good, although my knee is a bit messed up, so I'm following Anita on anything that involves the knee bend. Still a great workout though.

Done with Level 1 of the Shred!! I'm ready for a change, so that's good.

The Bootcamp is going well so far. The resistance band I borrowed from my mom isn't the kind I need though. I need the exercises today best I could (and still felt it for sure!) but will need to get another one.

Happy Wednesday!

Well I think I'm going to start that challenge on Monday if you're in!

I was supposed to get up and Shred this morning, but the kids crawled into bed with us right after my alarm went off, and I ended up turning on royal wedding footage instead. Oh, well. Tomorrow I'll get up early and run, run, run.

It seems like Jillian has push-ups in almost all of her DVD's, and I hate them too! I haven't done the Shred for a while so I don't remember if they are in all three levels but I do remember the traveling push-ups!

I checked out that challenge a bit and I am interested in doing it. I am just hoping that the videos aren't too tough for me. I still feel a slight bit of tension where I injured myself so I don't want to push it. I guess I could join though and maybe modify some moves if I need to. It would be nice to have something new to motivate me these last few pounds.

That's great! Glad you're back on your feet! And definitely take it slow... sometimes when you're feeling better, you're so relieved that you end up pushing yourself too far and doing more damage!

Pilates are great - I used to do that a bit years ago and really liked it. I should get back into it!

Did the Shred again today. All good, except I really hate those push-ups! Oh well. I'm definitely capable of doing more than I used to be able to, but still don't enjoy them in the least. Trying to remember if there are push-ups in the other two levels - I seem to remember a "traveling push-up" or something... guess I'll find out next week.

I have never done any of those challenges, not sure exactly how they work, but I have thought about joining. My pulled muscle is finally better but I am going to start off slow with exercise, don't want to reinjure myself! That took a lot longer to heal than I thought it would. So for now I am going to stick to pilates and walking.

Cardio has always been pretty tough for me so people that run really impress me!

I just signed up for the Spring into Shape challenge, although I think I will officially start it on Monday as a May goal/challenge. Anyone else doing this?

The running's been going well, although I haven't been as motivated to go the long haul - I think that's OK, though - I just have to listen to my body and do what feels good. There have been days when I DID feel like going the long haul, so I'm sure I will again.

The 30-Day Shred is going great - I had a couple days of shoulder issues, but that seems to have calmed down. I love that I feel like I really did something, even in only 20 minutes. I feel ready for Level 2. Still a few days left of Level 1 though.

Hope everyone is doing great!! :) :) :)

Yeah, I don't think I would go in expecting to achieve a 6-pack either, but if it happened I'd be very psyched! Haha... I also would only do it 3 days a week on my non-running days. I think I will make that my goal once I'm done Shredding this time around.

I followed the schedule, level 1 for 3 weeks then level 2 for 3 weeks. I planned to do it 5 times a week but the first couple weeks I only did it 3 times a week and mixed in other workouts. The thing is, I feel like it is a really good overall body workout, not just an ab workout. I didn't get anywhere near a 6 pack but I didn't expect to. But my tummy got smaller and I really enjoy the workouts. They are good cardio because of the fast pace.

Thanks. Feeling a little better today so I am hoping another day or two should do it.

Love 6 Week 6 Pack! And Banish Fat even though it absolutely kills me emoticon My fave is probably No More Trouble Zones but I love all her DVD's!

Great idea! Unfortunately I need to take a couple days rest because of a pulled muscle but I will be posting here when it's healed. I love the Shred and do lots of Jillian Videos!

I think that as the daily weigh-in keeps you on track when it comes to a few pounds here and there, a daily log of your exercise helps you see your accomplishments and get you back on track quickly when you're lagging. I find it more helpful to see a list of the dates and corresponding exercises than plugging it into the tracker.

I started a log of my daily exercise back in July when I started my Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. I started the Shred again today, and so I'm reinstating the log!

Here it goes!
