Friday Weigh-in, Kailee's first birthday!

I weighed-in this morning and I weigh... 147.1!!!!  That means I should definitely be 145 (or less) on my birthday!!!!  I should definitely fit in my favorite jeans by then!  Woohoo!!!!

2 more workouts down

I did 2 circuits last night before giving up (thanks to numerous interruptions from the kiddoes).  Tonight I did 5 circuits of No More Trouble Zones and a minute of elliptical after each circuit.  It was a good workout.  The kids even let me take a nice relaxing shower afterwards so I'm about to fall asleep typing....

July 25, 2010

Just did my workout!  I had to tweak some of the exercises for my toe but that's okay.  I weighed today and I weigh 149 flat!  After the vacation I had, that's pretty good.  Hoping for 148 on Friday!  If I lose a pound a week, I will be 145 on my birthday.  Fingers crossed!

Workout July 23rd

So I went on vacation Sunday-Wednesday and guess what, I injured my big toe on Monday!  After coming home, I gave myself a couple of days of rest but managed to workout yesterday.  It went VERY well though I'm officially sick of my elliptical.  I had to do all of my cardio on the elliptical and adjust some of the lower body moves to accommodate for my big toe but I DID IT!  I was going to workout today to make up for lost time but decided that if I keep working out on off days, I will never stay on my schedule (which is supposed to have Tuesdays and Saturdays off--making it perfect that weekly swim lessons are going to be on Tuesday nights after school starts).

When I realized my knees/ankles would not allow me to do all the cardio in the 30DS I FREAKED OUT and about gave up.  Once I realized the value of the elliptical, I learned that all hope was not lost.  My first thought with my toe was, "Oh no!  Now I'm not going to reach my goal for my birthday!"  But then I realized, "So you are going to have to adjust and you may not be able to everything but that's okay.  You will not give up because of a minor setback!"  So I'm proud of myself for not freaking out totally.

Today was supposed to be an off day but instead I did Monday's workout.

Friday's workout

Just did yesterday's Jillian workout.  Feeling good!

Thursday's workout did not happen :(

So we had to take my car into the shop around lunch time, came home and the AC was on the fritz.  It did not allow the house to be cool until the middle of the night, thus the workout did not happen.  Because of this, I plan to do yesterday's workout today (which is scheduled to be a cardio day--which I did Monday) and Monday's workout tomorrow (which should be an off day).

I went shopping last night and I'm definitely an Old Navy size 10!  Woohoo!  And today I am wearing jeans that I couldn't before.  I tried on some work clothes that did not fit last year and I have some pants and skirt options that should work by the time schools starts.  I can fit into them now but they would look better with a little more wiggle room (which I should have more wiggle room by the time school starts).

Now off to workout!

Monday's and Today's workouts

We took the kids to the zoo on Monday so I'm counting my 2 hours of walking around in the 100 degree heat and humidity as my cardio.  Usually Fridays are scheduled for Cardio in Jillian's program so I'll do Monday's workout on Friday.

Today I did her level 2 workout and it was great!  I enjoyed all of the circuits.  Goal: workout tomorrow.  Usually what has been happening is that I workout Wednesday and then am too sore on Thursday.  I hopefully will push through especially since I am going on vacation on Monday and won't likely workout Monday-Wednesday.  I may even leave Sunday so that's 4 days of eating badly and not working out! :(

Just worked out

I did the level 2 workout for today!  I am feeling really good about my body.  I wore some jeans on Friday night that haven't fit in a looooong time.  Still waiting on my faves to fit.  I've decided not to try them on again until Kailee's birthday.  If they don't fit, then the goal gets pushed back to my birthday.  I should be able to lose the remaining 9 pounds by then.  If not, at least 5 and my jeans should fit.

And yesterday, I broke the 150 mark!  149.7!!!!  WOOHOO!!!!

I did 3 workouts on Jillian's website

I started out at level 3 and did 2 workouts.  THEY WERE AWFUL.  I could not get through the second and was so worn out I had ZERO motivation to continue the program.  I dreaded working out again since Friday.  Today, I came to my senses and tried level 2.  Level 2 left me pumped and ready for more.  I do not dread working out tomorrow (which is supposed to be an off day but I need to make up for taking extra off-days).
