Two pounds down this week! Only 14 to go until I hit my full goal! And about 19 to go until I get my tattoo!
Today's weigh in day... Im a little nervous because I have been really sick the past few days and I missed 2 days at the gym. Plus, when I am sick I go into carb overload and I love eating/and can only keep down noodles and potatoes. So, we will see. Hopefully I havent gained anything back.

Peer Pressure


So, we went out yesterday to help a friend move some stuff into her new apartment and she bought the most delicious awesome amazing looking/ smelling pizza ever for everyone. But, the key words there are "looking/ smelling". I am so proud of myself because even when peer pressured and drooling I was able to say no. I home and ate steamed veggies and went for a run at the gym!

Slackers never get anywhere!

So, I know its been a while since I blogged and I know I said I was going to start blogging about my 30 Day Shred but I have been so busy that I havent had much time to get on the computer. Well, I have been doing the 30 Day Shred for over a week now and I have lost 6 pounds! My shorts are fitting better and I feel better. I do, however, work out at the gym in the evening still but I feel like the Shred is helping in my shaping up. Its helping to tone my arms, legs, and stomach. However, I dont feel like I am doing it hard enough, so tomorrow I am going to step it up to the second tier or the Shred and do that. I want to feel that burn!

So, I started my 30 day shred video, again, today. I was working out twice a day by riding my bike in the morning for 45 minutes and then going to the gym for a hour to 1 1/2 hours at night, but I have hit my cap. I haven't lost anything in weeks and its becoming really discouraging. I have 20 pounds to go. Thats it! You would think it would be easy. 20 pounds is all I have left of my goal of 55 pounds and I know I can do it. So, I decided to add the 30 Day Shred with Jillian Michaels from the Biggest Loser. It involves doing 20 minutes of intense work outs that include a combination of strength, cardio, and abs. There are three tiers that last 10 days each, of work outs that get harder with each tier. The first time I did it I was really sore for days but today, I am not so sore. I wonder if its just from being in better shape than I was when I did it the first time or I just did it wrong. I guess we will see what happens after I wake up in the morning. I will blog every few days about how its going any what part of the video I am on. I will take my measurements every week and post how many inches I have lost from certain areas. And after my 30 days are up, I will post how the program worked and if I recommend it. Ideally, you should be able to lose up to 20 pounds in 30 days by following the routine and eating healthy. I know, its a little unreal to believe I will healthily lose 20 pounds in 30 days, so I will just be happy with 10.

Two Ladies, One Ham!

So, today I get to suffer. Its not the gym and its not some crazy diet. No, today I get to go to the Commissary. The place where every evil, pushy, crazy, mean military wife likes to go to on the weekends. I like to think of it as the Olympics for grocery shopping.... get in, get out, with everything you need in less than 2 hours without getting hurt. Sometimes, the little old ladies there are so picky and crazy that it reminds me of a holiday sale where two women fight over the last ham. Now, I usually do my grocery shopping at the Commissary on the weekdays after 7pm because there are less people there  but I wasnt able to make it during the week and now we are out of food. So, unless I want to come off my diet and eat horribly bad at Taco Bell for the next couple of days, I need to get on it. Wish me luck!

Death by.... ummmm celery?

OMG, I would die for a candy bar right now! But, I am going to sit here and eat my celery and carrots and pretend its being dipped in chocolate. MMM maybe a spoon of peanut butter?
