Writing about my goals to eat better and lose some weight has made me so much more accountable, because it is so public! You guys are real motivators too! I talked about how I hit a wall a few weeks ago, but have kept at it and tried really hard not to let it get to me.
I have been eating right and working out strong for the past week, and I am feeling great. I am just trying to stay balanced. In an effort to really stay motivated and be accountable, I announced on instagram that I am going to do the Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred straight for 30 days! I am taking Jillian up on her offer :) I do really well when I set super specific goals like this.
I have had a few of her DVDs for awhile now and I love them. They are killer workouts, but I have never actually done the 30 Day Shred the way you are properly supposed to do it - Straight for 30 days with good eating to get great results. I have read reviews online of people just raving about the results, so I figured why not try it since I already love the DVD as supplemental exercise?
So many of you wanted to join in that we started a hash tag to try and motivate each other! You can join us at #30daybuttkick I realized the other day that we will be leaving for a two day ski trip with Trevor's family over spring break this month, and I am pretty sure I am not going to do this DVD in front of my in-laws, soooo I am kind of bummed I will have to skip those two days. But since I will be skiing the whole time for two days I figured it will be okay haha, I will practically be in a static squat the whole time and will be plenty sore! So I am not counting those two days in my 30, just in case someone out there is "counting" my 30 day challenge haha and will just pick up where I left off in counting after those days. So since I started this challenge on February 5th, my goal is to have done Jillian Michael's 30 times by March 8. I will make sure to post my results then! You going to join me?! ;)
A lot of you have asked what I have been doing, eating, and all that jazz. I plan on sharing it all with you at some point, until then, I am just trying to really get going on this weight loss and healthy eating habits, so stay tuned :)
