What a downer! It appears much of it is caused by some medication changes--- oh and a monthlong visit home. I applied for a membership to the YMCA Friday so hopefully they'll approve me soon and I can get my fitness level going again== plus they babysit for 2 hours a day!!

Life has just gotten the best of me. It's been busy, busy, busy around here and I just haven't been online at all that much. I'm down to 120!!!! I can't believe it. I would still like to lose another 5, maybe 10 pounds, but we will see! I'm pretty proud of myself for hitting my weight loss goal. :)

That was a rough one today. I was thinking about taking a rest day. I slightly pulled a muscle last night in my thigh while washing my face! LOL. But it was feeling fine this afternoon so I went for it and did level 2 again today. I took some pics afterward so please excuse my sweaty, messy self. Also, it's laundry day so please don't mind the laundry everywhere! I set up some comparisons but I'm not seeing much difference yet.

So, I just finished getting my butt kicked by Jillian Michaels. Today is my Day 5 of the shred. I think this is the longest I've gone in years consistently working out on a daily basis. I am feeling great overall, but today was tough. I really, really didn't want to do this workout today. But, I knew I would have more energy after I did it and so I grudgingly put the DVD in. No sooner did it start than I started to hear those negative voices in my head. "You don't need to do this," and "You can quit and do this tomorrow. You're really tired, you deserve a break." etc. Well, in spite of those thoughts I continued to push. And push. "2 more minutes," I kept repeating to myself. "I can quit if I just do 2 more minutes." And yet, as each 2 minute milestone passed, I continued on. Painfully, but I just did. I reached deep inside myself this morning to pull out a workout on ZERO motivation. And it feels so intensely good that I didn't quit. I am absolutely, totally impressed with myself today and that in itself is me reaching a big goal. So, yay me!!
