I Have HOW MANY Pounds to Go?!?

Hi everyone! I know, I know...same excuse...I've been slackin' majorly! Work has been extra crazy and coming home to "homework" with Bells or just coming home and plopping myself on the couch has me neglecting my blogs. I started fixing my laptop yesterday, so that will give me one less excuse to actually write. It's really good and therapeutic for me, so I should get on that.

So, it's been about a month since I started "working out". I use that term very loosely because laziness tends to get the best of me sometimes and I slack off. As I mentioned before I did the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. Well...sadly I only did about 20 days non-stop. I got up to Level 2, and about 3 days before I was going to move to Level 3...I just got so lazy!! Then after a week of doing absolutely nothing I picked back up with Level 2. Big mistake! All that work for nothing because I could NOT get through a whole workout. :( So, now I'm back to Level 1, haha!

Losing weight is a serious life-style change and I know for me, sometimes it just seems like "too much". Having to watch what I eat, when I eat, and how I eat seems like such a big price to pay. Sometimes, I just want to stuff my face and have a beer. Can I do it? Yes, of course I can. Should I? Probably not. I'm still trying to find that nice middle ground, if anyone knows any tips...please send them my way!!

That being said....the 30DS would have worked wonders if I had stuck with it. Here are my results...

I lost a total of 7 lbs and 13.5 inches overall. Not bad I guess :) I'm still "shredding", but I think now I will not be counting 30 days. I will just do whichever workout I feel comfortable doing that way. I just don't want to put that kind of pressure on myself to think that I have to do "this" in x amount of days.

A little update:
My "Orange Tiger"

Bells is doing GREAT in school, she LOVES it! We now have "homework" every day, which is usually just an extension of what her teachers have taught her on that given day. Yesterday we glued some star shaped soup on to a big "S". We also have a reading log, so story time is mandatory now. I really need to get some new books! Any recommendations???
Thanks for looking!!

Looking good mama! I wish I knew the answer to finding balance in eating right and exercising. For me, I try to be conscious of what I eat but on the weekends I tend to let loose a little bit and have dessert or whatever. Keep up the good work. And what a little cutie you have! As for books, have you read The Help? I loved it. ;)

Oh the just feels so nice to be "off" and not have to worry about anything. But then Monday rolls around and you're like "what did I dooo??" Ha!! Thanks...she's a handful!! :) No, I haven't read The Help yet, Ive heard nothing but good things though. I'll definitely have to put it on my reading list. I also need to pick up some good kids books. We have a bunch, but reading them over and over an get kinda boring :/
