Been outta it for a while..

So I have been MIA for a little bit. Have had a ton going on.

I started Zumba and love it. Going to start paying for each month instead of by each day. For anybody near me that wants some info on it just hit me up!

After starting Zumba I ended up getting a bad cold the second week in. So I missed a few days.

Then a beloved tornado tore though our small town. Still trying to clean up the mess for that one. Don't think I've ever been that scared in my life. No warning and a tornado the next street over with two kids and no where to go. I had enough tornado's to last a life time.

So my hubster bought me a elliptical for my birthday!! I am totally stoked to use it and get into shape. I plan on using it every day along with Zumba 3 days a week.

Now I just gotta get my eating back on track now. Been kinda bad about portion control.

Other good news is that today was my little mans first day of school at the headstart program. Getting up at 6am has kicked my butt today. Pray it gets better soon.

Here is a picture of my work out on the elliptical. It was a 30min work out and my target heart rate was 137 and i stayed above it. =]

Well off to bed for me... Im wooped.

Until next time!

Discouraged is a understatement!!!

The title says it all. I've been doing the 30 Day Shred, eating cleaner and counting calories and still haven't lost a damn pound! Pretty much makes me feel like crap. I just don't know what to do.

What makes it even worse hubster tells me he's lost 7 pounds! Im proud of him, I really am. I just with I could lose some too.

I am thinking about pitching the 30 Day Shred and looking into something else right now.

I really believe I need some straight forward cardio to help me get going and the 30 Day Shred isn't enough it seems.

I've been looking at Zumba and a few other things. I want something fun and where I won't get bored to easily.
Any Suggestions??

I know I shouldn't let this bother me and Ill really try not to let it get to me too bad. Ill keep on moving forward the best I can even If I have to cut down to only eating salads!

I just wanted to give a quick update. But Im tired and frustrated so off to bed.

Until next time.

Days 4 and 5

Day 4

Sunday was a beautiful day. It was warm with a cool breeze. The Aj's loved getting to go outside and play. We actually went to the park that afternoon and walked the big track pretty much uphill too. We actually did a little running with Ayden. It felt awesome not to be so winded even with Alayna on my back.

That nights workout was a bit tough. It wasn't that I was super sore anymore, I think my body was just really tired. I pushed through though. My wall sits and planks were great either. I also was super super under my calories for the day even with snacks in there.

Onto Day 5

It started raining late last night and has been going all day so we didn't get any walking in. Probably won't be able to for a few days due to rain.

Today was a lazy day. Watched movies all day pretty much. Going to have to get up and clean tomorrow since I didnt do anything today! 

Actually took me a while to get up to set everything up to work out. Good Friends always help with that!

Tonights work out seemed like a breeze!! I still had sweat coming off me but I feel stronger! I only had to stop once in the beginning and I believe if I stretch my calves out better it Will fix that problem!! I can't wait to get a scale to see if o have dropped any weight. It Will only motivate me more.

Looks like I am under calories again tonight but not as bad as last night for sure!

Here are a few pictures for tonight. First one is Alayna and I using the Ergo on Sunday. Second one is plank and wall sit for Sunday and Third is tonights!

Until Next Time!

Day 3 of 30

So I completed day 3 with a little bit more ease. With it being a bit easier only tells me Im doing something right which makes me feel AWESOME!

My legs are still really sore and I am starting to feel it in my abs and arms too.

I did my wall sit and plank tonight after working out. My plank was only a few seconds longer than last time but my wall sit was crazy! Totally not what I was expecting! I guess getting distracted talking to hubs helps.

My calories were okay today. We ended up having pizza for dinner visiting with the brother in law and kids. I did eat a salad before the pizza though. I still didn't go over and about 650 short for the day. That is including what I burned off. Tomorrow Will be a better day for eating.

Off to go wash this coconut oil outta my hair!

Until next time!

Hello sweat.... Day 2 of 30

Good Bye Fat!!! 

Just got done doing day 2 of the 30 day shred and let me tell you it hurts!!! I was able to do more tonight than I did last night which makes me feel better. Hubster was laughing at me at one point because I don't have any weights so I used the family size soup cans! Lol improvising works well! I didn't want a lot of weight, just enough to feel it!! 

So I skipped out on my wall sit and plank tonight.(I know shame on me) but I was so ready for some water and a shower! 

I also took some pictures tonight of me now so I have something to compare too after the 30 days. I can't wait to see the results. I'll probably post them later on when I get on my computer. I'm quite ashamed of them and myself really. Now I keep thinking "why did I let myself get like this?"  

Now I plan to beat the heck outta this fat! Well I shouldn't say plan too.... I WILL lose this weight and get in shape! 

Also my Ergo came in the mail today!! Totally excited about it! I figured out how to get Aj2 on my back with no help and she loves it!! Going to have to keep my hair up though, she kept pulling my hair tonight. Lol 

Just completed my calorie count for tonight and I'm under again. Not too bad though. I'm having a hard time eating my amount even with eating snacks. Hopefully it will get better over time. 

 Sorry if this post is more of rambling tonight, I keep getting distracted by the tv. 
Well I'm off...

Until next time!

Day 1 of 30

So I just did day one of the 30 day shred and it kicked my butt!!! I did do the best I could though! It didn't help that I started getting a leg crap towards the end, but I did make it!!! 

Looks like ill also be under my calories again for the day! 

Just wanted to share that I sweated like crazy and burned some fat! 

PS: Anybody who is wanting to do the 30 Day Shred but don't have the money to buy, YouTube.com has all three levels! 

Until next time! 

Here are a few pictures also. Zoey making sure Im doing my plank right and of my times tonight. Top is of my plank and bottom is my wall sits. These were done after working out!
