Well, Well, Well! Here I am again....

I have been doing a TON of thinking about my journey and how it plays into my life. The truth is, I am super busy right now. I haven't been tracking daily on SparkPeople. I still weigh about the same as I have for the past year. Would I like to get out of the 120's? Yes! Do I still feel I HAVE to weigh 109? No! My body is pretty small right now. Well, everywhere but the abs/love handles. The number is messing with my head a little, but that has to stop.

All of this weight thinking HAS. TO. STOP. NOW!

I am currently a size 4(27). I would like to get into a size 2(26). I am really close, but my tummy region needs some help!

Enter this gorgeous woman!
I am going to let Miss Michaels help a girl out! I did the 30 day shred for about 10 days or so a while back and then quit, but a few days after I quit, I noticed that my arms looked great...and so did my legs, butt and abs. Damn! Why did I quit? I stopped making it my priority to get it done. I got bored.


I caught "The Shred" fever again and this time I decided to combat the boredom with some Pandora and used the power of the "MUTE" button.

Tonight, I am going to have my lovely man take measurements and "before" photos! I will start the DVD tonight. We'll see what the next 30 days bring.

  1. thanks for visiting my blog! spinach in smoothies is awesome - you can't taste it but get lots more nutrients! :) last week i did 2 of jillian's videos - 6 week 6 pack and 30 day shred. both were awesome and i was tired after them and super sore the next day. i haven't done any this week but keep thinking about it bc i know that she's the best at whipping people into shape! good luck on 30 day shred, and hopefully i'll get back at it tomorrow, too!

  2. I love Jillian Michael's workouts! Have you done the 6 week 6 pack? I LOVE IT!
