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.

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.
