Day 15/16

Wow, there is so much to catch up on!

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I know so many of us have new years resolutions to get in shape, but I have this theory that all new years resolutions fail, so instead I decided to make it a "New You Resolution" :) Err... "New ME Resolution" :) This is seriously happening guys.

Second of all, THANK YOU SOOOO much for all the fabulous awards that you all have given me. I will collect and hand them out to you all soon :)

I JUST got done with Day 1 of 30 Day Shred. OH MY GOD. I knew I was out of shape, but WOW. I am REALLY out of shape. I can't wait to do it tomorrow to see if it is any easier. It was really difficult, but I made it through it!

I have not been super careful with food. I feel all better now, but I think my stomach has shrunk, so I eat very little before I am full. I have basically been trying to pack myself with protein because I know I need it.

Today, I had the opportunity to eat the most delicious looking brownie, but I turned it down. Pretty easily too. If I really want to eat something, I let myself have it. But I eat it within reason. I think Sam wrote a blog post about this. Don't make your body feel like you can't eat anything you want. If you let yourself have a couple of bites, your craving will be quenched. It really works.

I am a salt-a-holic, so my biggest downfall is potato chips. Mmmm... the salty goodness does my body bad. I have learned that if I pack a few chips in a little baggy and bring it with me to work... either I don't eat it (which is good) or I eat just a few quenching my craving without eating an entire bag (which is good). It really is the way to go.

I am going to do Day 2 of 30 day shred tonight. (If you haven't guessed, I wrote half of this post last night and half tonight) It is super tiring, but I know that if I keep doing it, then it will get easier, and I will see results.

Are you guys having luck with any workout videos? How is your motivation and determination on this January 2nd? I hope you all are still going strong.

I think I am going to weigh in tomorrow morning when I wake up. Wish me luck!

Take care until next time,

can't wait to see your post on 10 things...also, I started the 30 day shred last month right before the holidays which was a dumb time to start. I made it to day 12 before i got side tracked. It is a fun/difficult workout. I did 10 days on level 1 and planned on doing 10 days level 2 then 10 on level 3. you think level 1 is hard. Level 2 sucks even worse! If I could stick with it for 30 days I'm pretty sure it would work! I am hoping to get back in to it!
