Weigh-In and 30, 20, 30!

Yesterday I weighed in and I was down 1.6 pounds.  Not gonna lie.  I was disappointed.  I've since changed my tune so don't jump on me.  But yesterday, my first thought was "I did 30 Day Shred 6 days in a row as well as some zumba and yoga and I only lost 1.6 pounds??? BULL$HIT!!".  Now that I've slept on it, I'm happy with 1.6 pounds.  It's down.  It was more than 1.  It's in the healthy range for successful weight loss.  And when doing the math, if I do this 25 more times, I will be within my lifetime membership range again at WW.  So last week 25 more times!!!  Here we go!

30 Day Shred . . . ah f*ck it.  :)  Seriously, I can't watch Jillian every day for 30 days.  Yes, it's an excuse but really I can't.  I started off doing it, by day two I'd muted it and by day 6, I couldn't watch her anymore.  Her silent enunciation started driving me nuts and now that I've mentioned it, it's going to drive you nuts too, I apologize.  So my new plan is just activity for 30 days straight.  I have a multitude of dvd's and Wii workouts that I don't have to get sick of any one in particular.  Tomorrow I'm starting with Bob's Pure Burn Super Strength.  I've done it before and really liked it because it was very close to a class a I fell in love with at the gym called Barbell Blast.

20 -- I got to change my HYC badge to 20 lbs lost!

30 consecutive days tracking.  Today is day 30 and I've tracked every bite, lick, taste, sip. Everything!  It works.  It keeps me in check.  I'm so excited to be just a week away from my previous record of 37 days.  Today has been a rough day.  I've been feeling a little woeful and bogged down by life stuff and in turn, that makes me feel hungry.  Emotionally hungry.  And I want to cure it with a mountain of bad food.  I actually need to go grocery shopping right now but I don't want to go because I know that I will come home with some crap to ingest tonight.  I know I'm not physically hungry so I'm really trying not to go nuts and I'm tracking everything.  It's 7:29 pm and the only thing I'm having more today is a glass of wine.  Come to mama!!!


  1. That's hilarious.. and exactly what I have always thought about the 30 day shred. A good workout but every day for 30 days? Eh no thanks. Plus its so hard lol. But I think you have a great plan with the working out every day thing, plus changing it up will help you too!

  2. I know exactly what you mean about how annoying she is! I've never lasted more than 3 days in a row It was amazing the difference in endurance I saw from one week to the next. Whereabouts in Canada are you?

  3. OMG!! I feel the same way about the 30 day shred, I mean I do like the workout but the consecutive-ness? um NO I can't! lol. Congrats on the loss! it's a good one :)

  4. Congrats on the weight loss. You are doing fantastic! I love your plan BTW, Here's to 25 more weeks seeing that drop!

  5. Damn, girl! You're kicking some serious butt! :)

    It's SO frustrating and hard when you've been knocking yourself out and only see a tiny down-tick on the scale. However, you'll see it either next week, or in other ways (increased endurance, increased energy, etc).

    Keep up the GREAT work!
