Okay yesterday started Operation Get My Groove Back aka OGMGB. Justin and I had a talk (okay he talked and I pretty much nodded and wept). I need to get over this slump I have been in and get back to where I was. So he reduced my calorie intake from 1800 to 1500. (holy batman). And I took on a couple of challenges.
Last night was Zumba night! Oh how I love Monday's just because of that. Seriously, I have a hard time wrapping my head around something being THAT fun, being exercise! I have never found anything that I just LOVE to do before I guess. And that is totally making all the difference in the world right now.
I mean where else can you get these kind of results, and have a blast at the same time? If you have not tried Zumba please give it a chance. If I can do it, ANYONE can. And if you are in the Tri City Area (where I live), let me know I will drag your butt to class with me!
So this is how yesterday broke down. I was VERY please with myself, and after seeing this.
I think I can totally handle it. It will just take me a few days to get back into my killer zone that I was in before, but I know I can do it. I want it bad again.
Today I started Jillian's 30 Day shred. Not only did I finish it without totally dying or quitting, but I also talked Micheal (my 14 year old son) into doing it with me. It was so nice to have him on the side of me cheering me on. So far that is the best part of this journey, is FINALLY being about to teach my kids healthy things. I look forward to seeing if we both can stick to this for 30 days. I have heard many good things about this. But it will talk discipline. I hope we BOTH can do it.
This week I have planned out all our meals. I have planned lunches, breakfast, and snacks for me for the week too. It feels pretty good, not to wonder what I am going to eat, and it feels really good, to have it there so that I can make the RIGHT choices.
Tonight is my first session of the week with Justin. I am working on not totally dreading these again. I feel like I have lost so much ground these past couple of months. I feel so out of shape (which DUH I am), but I was really feeling stronger until LIFE. I am hoping that I can get that feeling back again. It was a wonderful feeling.
