Shred the Spud!!

On the recommendation of many blog people, I went out and bought the Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred. Apparently it's exhausting, brutal, kicks your ass, makes you want to hurl, but produces great results if you can commit to doing the 20 mins of working out each day. So Monday I bought it, took it home and took off the cellophane...and then went and ate something. LOL   Last night was a designated running night, so I ran 2.5km on my treadmill and put Jillian aside for that night at least.... the dire warnings of all the blogger people ringing in my head "you'll be sore for the first 2 or 3 days" 2 or 3 days!!!! Oh boy, I'm usually sore on my own just getting out of bed it seems ... Jillian is going to kill me! Maybe I should sit down and write out my last will and testament before I get on with that DVD....

This week we have Thursday off for Canada Day "Oh Canada!" and I took Friday off so we're going to a new water park that opened near Ottawa, should be fun. Hopefully we'll be back in time for run class Friday night! I think our instructor is trying to arrange a demo spin class, that should be lot's of fun, sore tushie aside :) I've seen peopl in spin classes and the sweat just pours off of them like a waterfall... I like it when I sweat like that, makes me feel like i'm actually getting things done :) I'm just really afraid of the sore ass part. Oh that reminds me, I bought a most fantastic seat for my bike.. It's on the seat post, but it's tilted too far up at the front, so I need to adjust it before putting it back on my bike... maybe tonight I'll get a chance to take a spin around the neighborhood.. if it can ever stop raining!

Points in the Red = 13 (I'm officially out of everykind of point for the week, so Wednesday had better be on track!)

Doesn't take long for me to be bad now does it? We went to the movies last night and I was starving... I had not planned a good filling snack to eat right after work while we were watching the movie... I could have brought myself some fruit, some veggies maybe a sammich anything.... but I deluded myself into using up the last of my flex points for the week and induldged in the fries and hot dog... oh crap... skinny chick is in the corner crying again... something about clausterphobia... sorry chicklet!

Despite my stupid lack of planning.. this morning the scale was surprisingly lower for the official Weight Off = 236.4!!! Much better compared to last weeks 239.4. And now to hop back onto that wagon and put in a request that they install some seat belts or handcuffs on the wagon so that I don't fall off again LOL

Didn't run, cycle or try out Shred last night, however tonight is softball and that's a few activity points, but I want to try and not eat them... I don't want to start depending on them... I need less calories in and more activity to burn the basics... Burn Baby Burn! Fat butt inferno! Now that is what I call a grease fire LOL


  1. I see you are counting points. Do you go to the WW meetings or online. I am thinking about going back myself.

  2. If you want company, I could probably join you for the Shred thing... just maybe not with the kittens around. They're still super-prickly, and really want to play. ;)
