super stoked – had my weekly weight watcher meeting/weigh-in today & i lost 3 lbs!
*naked cartwheels bitches*
that brings me to 11.8 lbs. total lost & i surpassed my 5% (of total body weight) gonzers.
can i get a what? what?
so umm yeah, pretty freakin’ happy!
(myself & my daughter skylar @ the library today)
i had a feelin’ i was gonna have a good weigh-in – i worked out super hard this past week between the gym and the 30 day shred (details in the tab below my header) of course. and all i can say is that i effin’ l♥ve jillian michaels.
no seriously – i do!
i have never in my life worked out as hard as i am now & it proves the things she (jillian that is – i can call her jillian like i know her now that i am 12 days into her insane workout) says -- which i always thoughts were a hock of hooey & so cheesy.
it is mind over matter & if you put the effort into, you can do anything.
i have pushed myself through soreness, exhaustion, and a testy teenager who is on my last friggen nerve this week with his piss-poor know-it-all attitude (another post for another time).
but everyday i have that constant of knowing that i am going to do the 30 day shred & focus solely on me! and i may be wrong, but i just might finally be getting that workout *high* that i have read about. i think i found my exercise niche – weights/circuit training. who knew?
as i said, i am on day 12 and jumped up to level 2 yesterday.
in a word – wow.
definitely more intense & a lot of plank (in the push-up position) exercises which are just insane & oh-so-hard! by the end i look like i walked across the fuckin’ sahara desert & back!
once again i feel like i have worked muscles that have been dormant since probably 5th grade & just about everything minus maybe my left eyebrow hurts.
oddly – today did seem a little easier than yesterday.
regardless, i am not giving up -- plus can you believe that monday is the half-way point? i will be posting photos & measurements too - i am super curious what the measurements reveal.
so yeah – minus teenage drama & some soreness – i am super diggin’ life!
i caught a reflection of myself in a glass window today while out & about & for the first time in too long to remember i didn’t want to turn and run away screaming! not to toot my own horn (yeah right i am a wicked bragger from way back) but i actually liked what i saw! that is progress bitches!
just a reminder – don’t forget to link up…
spread the bloggy l♥ve, eat your veggies, and love yourself!
