Still going!

Day 2 back on the plan. All Jillian Michaels so far. I did 2 of her workouts tonight - 6 weeks to Six Pack Level 2 (to change it up) and Shred It with Weights Level 1. I'll be honest, I only got 1/2 way through the ab workout after doing the weight workout. I feel it in my abs from yesterday for sure!

Up to 2 litres of water a day - slowly weaning myself from diet pop. I normally drink anywhere from 5-8 cans a day! Today I've drank 4 cans, but also 2 litres of water.

Tomorrow is another Jillian Michaels day as hubs is still outta town. Probably do one of the 30 day Shred workouts & one of the ab workouts. I love her videos!

Still haven't figured out how much I should be eating... but figure if I'm not losing I'll up it a bit until I see results. NOTE: I am not counting my calories, but I have a really good idea of what I am eating & how much as I used to count & am on the same plan.

Back on the Wagon

I did alot of running around over the weekend & didn't make it to the gym. Ok, let's get real here, I was busy, but I used it as an excuse to NOT go to the gym.

But, tonight I broke the trend. I didn't go to the gym, but I did a Jillian Michaels Six Weeks to a Six pack workout for 1/2 hr. It was intense, and it wasn't just ab work. I feel really good now, and I'm reminded of why I love to workout - its the feeling of accomplishment I feel afterwards, and ofcourse the rewards of looking better!

Tomorrow's plan - 45 mins - 1hr in gym with weights & the JM ab workout again tomorrow night. Oh how I wish I had a gym buddy though! It would make it so much better.

Also found another bootcamp in my area starting up soon & it's 2x week & so much cheaper than the last place I went.... I am gonna consider it when I get back from DR, just to fill in & mix it up when I'm not going to the gym!

On another note, I don't know if I'm eating enough for the amount I workout & lifting weights.... after a week in Vegas when I got home I weighed 145lbs. After a full week back from Vegas & just plain eating better than I was in Vegas, I was down to 142.8.  I haven't been at that weight for a couple months - so I'm wondering if how much I eat comes into play.... am I not eating enough? I am eating approx 1500-1800 calories a day....

Totally off the wagon

Vegas set me back big time. This whole week has been trying to recover from Vegas! Migraines, then add on PMS. I think I actually worked out twice this week and I'm so disappointed in myself. However, I did stay away from the fast food & actually cooked!

I think my problem is that I've gotta stop feeling guilty about stopping on my way home from work to workout. I feel guilty because my son is 11 and while he is very responsible & independent, he gets home an hour before I do & I don't like that I'm not there immediately. I've also had the burden of picking up the dogs from daycare everyday on my way home, which makes my arrival home an hour & half after my son gets home. So if I stop at the gym, that would make it 2.5hrs my son is home alone. I know he is good on his own, but I still feel guilty if I'm not there.

Ughhh... tomorrow is another day & I will be going to the gym each day over the weekend. Then I must commit myself entirely - I just booked hubby & I a week long vacation in the Dominican Republic for April! Gotta look my best in my suit!
