I have taken somewhat of an unintentional break from the blogosphere lately. This is mostly due to Jack's teething. He isn't quite napping as much as he used to so I have to make the most of the 20-30 mins he is cat napping. Because I swore that I would let Jillian Michaels kick my ass daily, I mostly use this time for working out. Sometime I even manage to throw some laundry in and take a potty break! Aren't I quite the super mom? As you can see this doesn't leave much time for blogging, but I am hoping to find a little more time these next coming weeks.
So how did I do last week? Monday & Tuesday I was a champ. I formed a love/hate relationship with Jillian Michaels. For the 20 mins I was working out I wanted to kick her face in. But after, I wanted to hug her. Even Tuesday morning, after waking up with the beginnings of a cold, I felt better after working out. Wednesday, I am afraid to admit was a bust. With Kev at work all day and my cold hitting at full force-snots and body aches anyone?- I couldn't muster up the time or energy to "Shred". Thursday and Friday were a success, as was Saturday. Sunday I'm afraid I failed again, but when you are up til 3 am for a Bachlorette Party and have to work a double, working out doesn't really make the list.
This morning when I hit the scale I was a little disappointed. The number from last week didn't budge. This sort of surprised me and sort of didn't. On the one hand I cheated a little too much last week. Tuesday night we went out for margaritas for a friends birthday, Friday we went out to dinner, and Saturday night I had a Bachelorette Party...nuff said. But on the other hand I don't feel as bad about the number because I FEEL different. And I went down a whole pant size. My size 12 works pants kept creeping down so I picked up a 10. To my shock and amazement they fit. Without having to wiggle into them! So I know that I can't let this weigh-in bother me. I just need to keep up with it and keep pushing myself. I'm almost ready to move to Level 2 in the 30 Day Shred, and I am hoping that will help me see a difference not only in my clothes but on the scale.
