One clothing size.

Since I started Jillian Michaels' Body Revolution three weeks ago, I've gone down one clothing size.

Life & its curve balls....

This month, I have stuck to my workout schedule and mostly to my eating plan. I have not blogged almost at all because I've been doing all of that, plus working as much as possible, in addition to my usual work hours. My mind has been else where! I also took a mind break and got back into reading books with my extra time.

I'm still chugging along & making progress towards my goals. :)


Getting Back.

I now weight what I did the day before Christmas. Only took three weeks of weight ins to get back to it. :)


So about those gym mats...

I was really excited about the gym mat that I ordered from walmart for my home workouts that I do on an almost daily basis before my son wakes up. I actually purchased two mats so I could cover a 6 x 6 foot area. They arrived very quickly and after pulling them out of the box, I realized they were fantastic.
They're light weight and fold up easily for storage.

Well, here they are after ONE workout:

They're not so fantastic after all.

Tomorrow, I'm returning them to walmart and will have to figure out an alternative. My wrists need some cushion for the sideways plank and the workout was so much easier on my back with this mat. It just didn't hold up to the trials of a Jillian Michaels video.


Eating Healthy's Anomaly

The little things in life..

...that are sometimes, the big things.

Like accomplishing a friggin' side plank! In Jillian Michaels' Six Week Six Pack Abs, she does side planks but she doesn't just do them, she does them and adds another move onto them. I've just been working towards accomplishing HOLDING the side plank for the entire time that she does it. I planned to add the second move when I conquered said basics.
Well, I finally conquered holding my side plank position!!
I guess this means that I have to start the second move during the video tomorrow now!


This says it all for me.


I want to do the Tough Mudder in June & I want to do it right. :)

I worked out Monday & this morning. Both times, was Jillians six week six pack abs. I'm hoping the gym mats arrive today so I can start the 30 day shred tomorrow. I need to lose weight and build muscle, more specifically, upper body strength for the Tough Mudder! I will continue to keep running, as I said yesterday.
