Alright, stop...Hammer Time!

I know I called this whole 60-day process a gut check, but  I hate that world. It's absolutely too close to "gut punch" and if you've ever received one of those, well, it's not fun. They suck, actually. And I don't want to spend 60 days feeling worn out AND like I've been punched in my flabby tummy.

Yesterday I finished my first seven days. It was a bit rough. Ok, it sucked, but I made it and even though I've spent the past two or three days completely derailed, I still managed to knock out 4.5 pounds in the first week. All this in preparation of my first official weigh in and second photo I have to take next Tuesday for my Day 15 update.

Here's a quick recap of the first week:
"Oh..mah...gosh, I am so sick of hardboiled eggs."

Sunday August 26, 2012
I drank a lot of water today. I hate water and I'm constantly beating myself up over how little I drink.
My workout was the Jillian Michaels extreme Shed and Shred and it really, really hurt. Like, really. It was a half hour and over soon enough, but this one had my legs screaming the next day.

Monday August 27, 2012
Today was the first REAL day with all my rules (water before every meal, lots and lots of protein, no simple carbs, and no carbs after lunch.) It was also the first day of the Insanity workout program. I did Cardio Power and just about quit every 45 seconds. I sucked at it, no lie.

I'm so, so sick of hardboiled egg whites. I eat about six a day, and while it helps with that satiety issue, holy crap, they're boring. And chicken breasts. Good god, I'm sick of those, too. My legs hurt so bad after all the damn jumping and squatting yesterday that I counted playing with my kids at the park as a workout. Oh, whatever...

More eggs. More chicken. Water when I remembered it. I even did an Insanity workout that involved a lot of bouncing and feeling like every damn part of me had a sort of "jiggle" factor to it. Do they make sports bras for your stomach? How about your hiney? They needed serious support, too.

Today's workout was Pure Cardio and even the trainer, Shawn T, collapses at the end of it and says "This...^%$%...Is...Bananas." It's true. I'm still on the diet train and I'm starting to think maybe I look different? Feel different? I hope so.

Took the kids to the playground early and even managed to skip the breakfast tacos the hubs bought. Yay, yogurt! Didn't workout, however, and that's never good. I ate pizza tonight, too. Dammit.

Saturday September 1, 2012
Eating is off when everyone is home, but I did managed to hit the treadmill and actually use it for 35 minutes, including 18 minutes of actually jogging--something I haven't done in yeeeeears. Eating is off the journal and while not terrible, I'm off my game.

Sunday September 2, 2012
Eh....I didn't get much physical activity today and the eating sorta went off the books too.

Monday September 3, 2012
Ok, first off, in my defense, its Labor Day. And I made cookie bars. And we had skillet lasagna for dinner. And I totally didn't get to do my Insanity workout because the house was full of beautiful, active kids who control the television.

The good news? My routine goes back to normal tomorrow. I've got plenty of eggs and yogurt on hand and I'll be ready for next Tuesday's weigh in and photo op!

Have a great week!



  1. And this is why I Love you!!! I am right there with you girly. I am looking to drop 40 by Christmas (for a big girl that may actually be doable). South Beach Diet here I come. I am going to be a mean person for the next week :)Keep up the good work love!


  2. What kind of diet are you doing with all these eggs and chicken breasts? I don't think I could handle it. Good job sticking to it though. That's always the hardest part.
