Day 1 of the 30 day shred

Started a round of 30 day shred.  Lets hope this works better than last week.  I'm having a couple false starts.  But I refuse to start the New Year at my same weight and unhealthy lifestyle I started last year.  With what I believe is coming being healthy is going to be very important.  Healthy eating and healthy living.  I need to get my butt in gear.  So here is to getting going.  Not sure if I will hit my goal of 150 by 31Dec13 but I won't just give up without trying.  I still think I can get darn close if I push myself.  No extra cardio tonight but I pushed the workout and since I'm getting sick again I figure it's better than nothing.  Tomorrow I will do measurements and weight.

Really??

I was so ready to start.  I had my workout clothes on when the flu hit me Monday night :(.  Lasted through Tuesday midday.  So I took those days off :( and then tonight I was really tired (stress).  But I did get a mini workout done.  It's how I started last time and I figure it worked then, and I will do it again.  Tonight I did the following:
90 jumping jacks
20 tricep dips
10 sit ups
30 second planks
30 squats
15 incline pushups
40 crunches
10 oblique crunches
20 standing calf raises

About 20 mins.  It's not great but it's a start.  I have to start somewhere.  I am hopeful that tomorrow I will get a shred video done and start the 30 day push to drop some weight and get out of the 160's and well into the lower 150s by the new year.  I'm not giving up on my goal.  But progress is progress.

Getting on track

Eating hasn't been terrible until this week... but then it's that time of the month and I'm away from home for work :(.  Overall I am making excuses.  After dinner tonight I am going to do some cardio at the hotel, same with Saturday night.  On Monday I am going to start a round of 30 day shred and add cardio to that.  I will shred and then jump on the bike Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.  Then shred and run on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  I was going to do cardio opposite of this but with the kids school schedule this schedule made more sense than dragging the kids for a run on Saturday.  The 30 days will start November 18th and end December 18th.  I can use my motivation board :).  I have complete faith that I can still reach my goal of 150 by the end of December.  Especially with this plan I am going to start.  So along with working out I will work towards not being lazy about dinner and plan better meals.  I need to meal plan and make them healthy.  I just need to get moving and stop making excuses.  I hate when I get on a good roll and it gets messed up then can't get started again.

Sickness hit our house

Right as I finished my 30 days the house got sick.  We spent a week with everyone in the house running fevers.  And up until last Wednesday I was still throwing up at least one of my 2 meals.  Now I am just coughing and wheezing.  I should go to the Dr because this cough is terrible.  But I'm not.  I am going to try to start the Live Fit trainer.  The first four weeks don't have cardio so I am hopeful that will give me time to get better before I have to do cardio.  Breathing is difficult.  But I need to be back  in the gym and working out.  I can tell it will help me.  As I start getting better I will add cardio back in to start kicking this fat.  I'm sorry that I haven't been posting while sick.  I will be posting daily again.  Weight is down to 163 so there is a plus side.  And I made weight for the Coast Guard.

Day 29

Well today was a better day than yesterday.  I got my workout in.  I tried bodystep.  Not sure if I will keep going.  For sure burned calories and sweated alot but I couldn't keep up very well and jumping is not my strong suit.  Eating has been all over the road this week.  I didn't eat enough today but don't feel super hungry.  Going to finish some paleo bread and then head to bed.  Tomorrow is day 30.  We will see how far I got.  This is by no means the end.

Day 28 ended at the ER with one of the kids

Well today was a day it just didn't happen.  I slept in.. then when I was going to jump into bodypump I ended up going home which turned out to be a good thing since had to take J to the ER for a fractured humerus in his arm :(.  So eating wasn't awesome and I didn't get a workout in :(.  My weight is gonna suck for the final weigh in tomorrow, and or Friday.  Oh well such is life.  I will keep on going and those pounds will come off.

Day 27

I can't believe that I'm almost done with my first 30 day challenge and thinking about the next 30 day challenge.  For working out these 30 day challenges seem to be the best way to go.  For eating, well taking that one day at a time and making the best choices I can.  I can splurge here and there as long as it's not everyday.  As of this morning I was 166.5 meaning a 3 pound loss in 27 days, but it's solid weight gone and hopefully I will be down inches too.  I will succeed.  I don't need to crash diet to do it.  I will just keep plodding along and working out, making healthy choices and get there.  Goal for October is 5 more pounds lost so to be at 160 by 1 November :).  Or close to it.  To be still doing 6x a week at the gym.  To be running more consistently and be adding mileage.  I really want to do a 10 mile run in Austin in April and by the end of 2014 finish my first half marathon.  I will do this.
