After yesterday, I was super pumped to do better today. Especially when I cheated and did my daily weigh in and I had gained back(I'm hoping from high sodium intake)the 4lbs I had lost at last Friday's weigh in.

So this morning I woke up and did about 15-20 minutes of one of Jillian Michael's 60 minute workouts. I think it's called Boost Your Metabolism, or something like that. It's pretty awesome that ON DEMAND has a whole channel dedicated to Jillian, and it's all complimentary. Even the 30 Day Shred is on there. Unfortunately it's level 2and I FOR SURE need level 1. Anyway, I would have done more but my girls started getting cranky for their breakfast and anyway, she really knows how to kick a person's butt. Jeesh!

For breakfast I had a 100 calorie pack of wheat thins, a banana and a bottle of water.

For lunch I had a Lean Cuisine and thee most fabulous homemade salad I have ever made. I used a ton of lettuce, some cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber a serving size (2 TBSP) of peppercorn ranch and a ton of salsa and OMG! To die for. And the salad and Lean Cuisine together only added up to about 400 calories.

After lunch I took the girls on a BRISK walk to the neighborhood park where I ran after Buzzy for the most part, and swang? swung? swinged? her on the swings for the remainder. We then took a BRISK walk home where the girls both promptly fell asleep and I was able to dance for 30 minutes to JUST DANCE on the Wii.

For dinner I had another Lean Cuisine, another salad just like the one at lunch minus the tomatoes cuz I was all tomatoed out, and another bottle of water.

For dessert I had a Skinny Cow Peanut Butter & Chocolate ice cream sandwich with diced bananas over it. MMM MMM MMM and only about 230 cals.

My total calories for the day were 1492. 8 under my 1500 average. Yay!

Then to top off the night, I tried out the new Wii Fit Plus my mom, my gramma and myself split the cost of and OMG! So much fun! The best investment of $99.99 ever!

On one last note, I have bought Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. Rather, my mom bought it for me. The funny story behind that is that I went a thousand different places yesterday looking to buy it and EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER was sold out. My mom works at a local supermarket and in HER checkstand just happened to be THEE ONLY copy left in the store. (She said she looked elsewhere to see if there were other copies because I had explicitly complained to her that the guy in the electronics department had insisted they were COMPLETELY SOLD OUT) It was a God thing. He knew I needed Jillian. LOL

So, now I just have to wait until we get a mini DVD player. That, or attempt to do it in my cramped little bedroom from my laptop. We'll see. Regardless, I will soon be starting the 30 Day Shred Challenge, Level 1. Wish me luck. After what I've heard, I'll need it.

Until next time.

  1. Wow, you really did do great today - congratulations! You must feel great for it! :)

  2. A laptop sounds like JUST the right size for Jillian and her helpers. Not too know....

    I like level 2 better than 1 for some reason....I do not find it harder...just different. (!?!)

    Good job on doing the right things! Keep up the great work.
