30 Day Shred

Thursday, August 18, 2011

I am starting on my "Thirty For Thirty" plan... Thirty pounds off to make my thirties the healthiest decade of my life. I ran a 10 K run days before my 30th birthday, then just stopped working out. It was like, "Goal, check. And done.". I don't want to be like that anymore - just working out when I have to, not because it's a part of my every day routine.

So last week I got back from a road trip to Seattle with my friend, and stepped on the scale. It read 168.8. I was horrified! For my 5'4" frame, that is wayyy too much! I decided I needed to get on track. I joined the gym two days later, and have worked out three days in a row now. My husband, who also wants to shed some pounds, joined with me. We've been eating much healthier too - we are the king and queen of restaurant dining, but that's come to a halt. In that one week, I've dropped six pounds.

That little bit of weight loss has really got me going! This morning I woke up with tons of energy, and dusted off my Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred video. I did workout number 1, which is a 20 minute circuit training video. Woo! She kicked my butt! I loved it, and now I'm pumped up about getting fitter so I can sail through it and maybe do two of her workouts in a row. My goal is to do the video five out of seven days, plus some cardio and weights at the gym. I'm a teacher, and I'm back at work very soon, so I have to make good use of my remaining summer days. Hopefully I can keep my goals in mind when I get back to work, where there are constant staff room goodies, canteen crap, and long hours with little time to exercise...

    Oh, I love the 30DS. It is my dvd of choice if I've gotten a little off track. That 20 minutes is enough at first, but is still a real workout.

    Good for you getting back to it. You can do it!
