How Am I doing?

I've been better. After that steller first week of exercising, I didn't do too hot on the eating front on the weekend and it showed on Monday with a GAIN on the scale. =( A lot little discouraging to say the least. I continued going to the gym all last week though! (except for Friday but I stayed up until 1 am on Thursday night because I was working from home). I pulled it back together and today I showed a 1.4 lb loss. I can do better. I will do better.

This weekend I got to the point where I was sick of eating junk. So I chose differently. Did I choose great? Probably not. Was it better than it had been? Most definitely!

So I keep trucking along. Slowly, slowly slowly .. .

Ugh So tired

I am so tired today. This week and waking up to work out and working out in the evening is catching up to me. I did not want to do the Shred last night. Thankfully, my lovely children, wanted to do it with me so they pushed me to put it in the DVD player and we all did it together. Well Taylor sat and watched ;) but Emily and Connor did a lot of it with me. Of course the first thing out of their mouth this morning - Can we do exercise DVD tonight? Emily is so entralled in me changing into my exercise clothes LOL!

This morning was a struggle. I've told Connor that if he is a rainbow all week long we can have donuts on Fridays before school. Since I knew this was going to happen, I ate a bagel/cream cheese this morning so I would't be tempted when we went to the donut shop. Ugh. Didn't help. I still got an apple fritter. :sigh: I can still pull out today. Plus I did go to the gym this morning even though I'm SO TIRED. I know this is just temporary and it will get better once I get into a routine but it's hard the first week or two. I'm sitting here drinking a 24 oz of Diet Pepsi hoping the caffeine will wake me. Thankfully I had 32 ozs of water this morning at the gym but after this soda, it's all water the rest of today. I'm just so tired . . . Ugh.

Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred

I got this DVD for Christmas from the hubby (it was on my list ;) ). I FINALLY broke it out this past week and started supplementing my morning going to the gym with an evening of the Shred! Wow is all I can say. Yesterday was Day 4 and I so did not want to do it but I did. The first day felt so great! I was so sore and I felt it on Tuesday! I haven't had the feeling in a long time and it felt GREAT. Finally yesterday (thursday) the soreness had subsided. I'm planning on doing it every day that I possibly and and moving up a level after 10 days. It is definitely a GREAT workout for 25 mins!! I'll keep you updated!
