Like a Smoker...

I never quit quitting.. or something like that. I don't know what happened to my motivation last week. I couldn't get out of bed after doing the workout last week, and I told myself it was ok because this month I'm not trying to workout 30 days straight. Somehow, I didn't workout at all the rest of the week. I don't really have an excuse. My husband was sick, and I wasn't able to sleep well with all of his snoring and tossing and turning, but not being able to sleep well is not anything new.

So, here I am again, starting with ANOTHER DAY 1. I'm shooting for 7 straight days, that's my immediate goal. My motivation... I'm almost too embarrassed to admit.... is that show "The Biggest Loser." This is the first season that I've been hooked on it, and I absolutely can't stand one of the "players," Vicki. Last night, she made it into the final 2, I'm so disappointed. The finale is next week, and if she has lost another 40-50 lbs, (which would put her into the 120-130 range) then I know I can lose the 15 lbs I'm strugging to lose.

See you tomorrow!

Day 1 (Again)

I have no idea where November went. I was planning to give myself a short break after my first 30 days, but somehow, a short break became 30 days. I can't believe I let that happen, but now I'm back and ready to be motivated.

So I promised myself that I'd get up and work out on Dec 1, NO. MATTER. WHAT! If you look at the date stamp, you'll realize that it's now Dec. 2. As my luck would have it, I woke up yesterday morning with the absolute worst stiff neck... I could barely move.

So, now it's Tuesday, Dec. 2 and I did wake up and do my workout.

I decided that this month I'm going to aim for every other day... I think that's a more reasonable goal than every day. I may start off with everyday, just to get back in the habit, but we'll see how I feel tomorrow morning.

I started back at Level 1 of Jillian's 30 Day shred. I used the 2.5 lb weights. It was perfect... slightly too hard, but not so hard that it was a miserable experience. It's strange how fast you can lose your strength when you fail to keep up with your workout routine.

I will also plan to vary my workouts from day to day with Jari Love and yoga and whatever else I have around the house.
