Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I am thankful for my family.

For Jeff - my best friend and love of my life.
For Brendan - my first born and funny man.
For Jake - my baby and wild man.

I love them all, and am so happy to have them as my family.

Day One, revisited...

OK. I fell off the wagon. I'm not surprised, but I'm not going to beat myself up about it. Because you know what? Shit happens. I don't like to exercise, and I didn't feel like doing it. For the past week.

But - I did it tonight. So there.

Happy Mother's Day!!

I was instructed to stay in my room this morning. The boys had something planned for me!

I waited for about 30 minutes, and then Brendan came in to get me. He told me to close my eyes and he would lead me to the kitchen. They had cooked breakfast for me! I had a chocolate chip pancake, and a bacon/egg/cheese burrito. Two of my favorite breakfast meals!! They were both delicious! Jeff was working like a mad man to coordinate everything, and the kitchen was a disaster. I had to smile to myself. His comment was something like, "It's really hard to do all of this at the same time..." :)

They had also made me a card. It had cut-out Mickey heads and rose stickers. I love it.

I am so lucky. I have the best family in the world.

Day Seven

I took Thursday night off, but did it last night. I'm able to keep up through most of it, but there are still points that I tell Jillian to "stuff it!" and stop moving for a couple of seconds. I still haven't seen the scale move... That part is really pissing me off! But then I have to stop and remember that I haven't completely changed my eating habits to go along with the exercise. I have made big changes (like not eating as much crap), but I'm still not giving up everything I enjoy. I know, I know... I need to make BIG sacrifices in order to make this whole thing work. I'll get there... Eventually.

Baby steps.

Day Six

I did day 6 last night. I'm taking tonight off.

I had a Relay for Life meeting tonight, and I'm really not feeling well. I think it's just allergies, but I still feel like shit. YUCK.

Back to it tomorrow!

Day Five

Day Five.

I feel like shit.

But I did it.

I have to start losing weight one of these days, right???

Day Four, Part 2

So technically, this should be Day 5... But - this is Day 4 of Shredding. I can tell that I have more endurance, but I still can't keep up completely. I am happy with as much as I can do though. I'm definitely making progress!

I still haven't noticed ANY change on the scale. That is discouraging. I'm going to try and ignore that ugly number for now and just keep going. Things WILL get better, and I have to have faith (and a lot of patience) to get through. I just wish I would have started this sooner...
