30 Day Shred

OMG! Jillian Michaels is THE DEVIL! She totally just kicked my butt for the second time today. I am pretty out of shape right now, I know that, but she just made me feel like a child trying to walk for the first time. It was sad, just sad. Mike actually did it with me and he thought it was a pretty "legit" work out as well. Although it is quite possible he was just saying that to make me feel a little better.

Here is my plan. I am not going to do the 30 day shred like you are supposed to. I am going to do the 15 day shred. I know I probably should do it everyday, but lets be honest people. I enjoy having days off. Oh and did I mention that I am lazy??? Well I am!! I'm not a couch potato by any means. I love getting out of the house and going to the park or a hike, or basically anything that is fun. WORKING OUT IS NOT FUN! I don't care who you are, if you think working out is fun I would be inclined to believe that you have some sort of chemical imbalance. Working out makes you feel good, gives you more energy, it sure makes you look good, but it is NOT fun. Show me one person who is in the midst of a smoking hard workout, the kind where every part of your body is burning in some way or another, and can say "OMG, I am about to pass out but boy this is fun". The rewards are fun, but the act itself is NOT.

Ok Ok I am ranting, back to The 30 day Shred. I am going to do it every other day for the rest of the month. I started on the second so by the end of the month I should see some results. I promise I will update with my progress. I am going to take my measurements today and hopefully by the end of the month I will see a different not only on the scale but also on the tape measure.

Not sure if I have mentioned this here, but I have lost 16lbs since middle of January. I haven't really been working out, it is mainly a lot of portion control that has helped me. I try to eat healthier, and not drink so much wine haha, but if I am going to eat junk I just eat less of it. Tonight is Mike's night to cook so I am sure it is going to involve some sort of frozen pizza. I have mastered having just 2 small slices and adding broccoli or some other veggie on the side to help fill me up. It almost always works. Now if I could just have that sort of self control when it comes to the left over Easter jelly beans and Reeses eggs.
