i'm only ten pounds away from my pre pregnancy weight - i consider myself lucky in that sense.
one thing i have always been self conscious about was the number on the scale. i dreaded even letting cj know what i actually weighed. all of that is flying out the window today. i'm going to let friends, family and complete strangers know that i weigh 209 pounds. yep. i NEED to put it out there so i can try to stay on my path to losing weight. i'm not trying to be a mcskinny, but i just want to be healthy, for my family, my husband and especially for my daughter.
[enter the 30 day shred]
my first mini goal is 10 pounds by the end of the month. obviously the shred is not all i need, but its a start - small steps people, small steps.
i popped in jillian michaels and almost went blind looking at her dog face, but i have heard millions of praises from people about this dvd. i started on level one [minus the hand weights, because dumb me didn't know i needed them], and quickly realized that i cannot even do real people push ups, i had to do the girly-knees-on-the-floor ones that made me feel even more out of shape. the workout was intense for me seeing as my abs have not seen a crunch in nearly a year, and i was sweating worse than ruban studdard on the american idol stage. i'm hoping to up the intensity tomorrow with some weights, and i plan to do a weigh in next sunday.... so.... we will see how this all goes.
i will post my findings for all who are interested and of course the cutie pictures of miss vegas will still be in abundance, no worries.
