Recommitment

Today I am recommiting to my diet and exercise regiment.  I'm so disgusted.  When we went to Crescent Bar the first time for the 4th of July I fought so hard to not gain weight, because I always do when we go there, and for once I was successful!  I even lost like 0.4 pounds.  But instead of continuing the healthy habits once home, where it's easier, I totally fell off the wagon and have now gained 4 1/2 pounds since.  Of the 8 pounds I lost at the beginning of the year I have now gained back 7.  Grrr...

So, now that all our little trips are over it's time to get serious.  We are going to Hawaii in May for our 5th anniversary so my goal is to lose at least 23 pounds by then.  That's 9 months away, so that's only 2.5 pounds a month.  I so should be able to do that, but we'll see.

I'm off to a good start (so easy to say on Day 1!).  I did the 30 Day Shred followed by a 23-minute walk with the girls (that's just how long it takes to walk to the end of the street and back).  I haven't done the shred in several weeks so I was expecting it to be pretty hard but it really wasn't.  Harder than normal, but not as hard as I thought.  Tomorrow I will go to the gym and hopefully get back to going 3 times a week or so.  I'm going to start posting every Friday my workouts for the week and my progress (or lack thereof).

I'm cracking down too! Good luck. :)

Have you tried the other Jillian workouts? They are much longer if the Shred is getting a little easy. Ive moved on from the Shred just because I wasn't feeling it like I used to, so I only do it if I'm low on time. She has 2 others that are pretty awesome as well, but around 40 minutes. Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism, and No More Trouble Zones....The Banish fat one is probably the hardest DVD Ive ever done... :)
