I started doing Jillian Michael's 30 day shred. It totally kicked my butt the first day. Like, I felt like I was gonna throw up and pass out...within the first 10 minutes. oy. It hurt. But I'm on day 4 now, and although it still burns and I feel like dying half-way through it, I feel so much better afterwards! Can I just ask why no one has thought about big-chested women when they make work out dvd's? Have you ever tried doing a jumping jack with 2 bowling balls hanging off you? My bra cuts into my shoulders so bad, I'm surprised they didn't bleed! I now have to hold my girls while doing the jumping jacks. sorry if that's tmi, but there it is.
As for my eating plan, I don't really plan on changing too much, other than just eating more fruits and veggies. I honestly don't eat all day long (as the shape of my body would suggest otherwise). I usually have a big iced coffee (with splenda and a little skim milk) in the morning with maybe a granola bar, if anything (I'm not a big breakfast eater) and for lunch, it's usually chicken noodle soup or a sandwich with pretzels. For dinner, I eat okay (not great, not horrible), but I never get seconds. The big thing for me is nighttime snacking. After the kids go to bed, I just want to sit down and watch a movie with Mike, and it makes me wanna snack, so I'll have a bowl of ice cream, or chips. Never carrot sticks or celery, for some reason. ;) I figure if I cut out the evening snacks, and drink only water and eat nothing after 6pm, it will help drastically! Oh, we cut out pop about 3 months ago, so that's been hard, but at least I don't have the cravings for it anymore. We'll have it every once in a while if we go out to eat or something, but we never buy it for our house anymore. I usually drink tea with splenda. I must start drinking more water, too.
So that's it. Please, please pray for me as I continue this. I have a long way to go, and I'm just starting. Gotta start somewhere, right? :)
