It's been a journey that I am ready to end.... being out of shape and over weight!
I've been struggling for quite some time to make time to work out and time for myself. Yes, Yes... I know I had all the time in the world when I was in Hawaii... but when my husband was home I wasn't motivated. Even though he is home now, I am motivated more than ever to lose this weight!!
Each day I will try to post what I've done the previous day to help keep you all motivated. Holding each other accountable is also going to help us all in reaching our goals. With that being said... Here is where I am at as of Monday May 17, 2010.
I am taking Jillian Michaels Fat Burner because I purchased it awhile ago, and I hated to see it go to waste. I bought it at GNC, not knowing they were TWICE the cost than at Target. I also have bought some WHEY Protein powder that I am using as meal replacements, adding fruit, water, 2% milk, and ice to. Last night I tried it with banana, and I did NOT like it, but still drank it. I also ate some California rolls... 6 to be exact. Depending on your caloric intake they can be a perfect snack if used in conjunction with your recovery drink. I would really like to SHAKE it up with SHAKEOLOGY, but for now this will have to do.
I also am incorporating P90x workouts into my daily routine. I can't do all of them because my arm still is not healed all the way from last summer, so no push ups for me. I also am walking.
This is what I did yesterday... I was up and out the door at 6:20. I went for my walk, in the rain, which I am guessing is about 2 miles, maybe more/ maybe less. I haven't driven it yet. However, it feels right around that mileage. After my walk I put in the AB RIPPER CD from P90X, and did that. (It felt incredible and I can actually feel those muscles that are hiding!!) After I got off work and cooked the boys dinner, I did the LEGS AND BACK CD....(I feel those butt muscles today!!)
Today I went for my walk, then did the CHEST SHOULDERS AND TRICEPS CD. I did NOT do the push ups on the ground, which is the main course of that CD, but I did use weights, incorporating other moves that could still be beneficial... ALSO PEOPLE... I use the wall doing standing push ups since my arm has really been bothering me. And then I did AB RIPPER X. ( Tony says you don't need to do it everyday, but Im gunna venture out and say I know some who use it everyday and they look great. )
(It is so embarrasing to post this, mind you, because I haven't been this heavy EVER without being pregnant.)

Well... There you have it. I am going to do a photo in a bikini that I would really like to see myself in sometime this summer, just to give you an idea of where I am, and to see the progress on July 18th. the importance of that date is just a friendly bet, and will NOT end my body transformation.
Thank you all for being supportive and encouraging. Feel free to post comments and be supportive who are also trying to shed those comfort pounds. The more supportive we are to each other, the easier it is to feel motivated.
Have a great day you guys!!
