Back down to my 5.2 lbs lost

So, three days just trying to lose what I gained over the two day weekend. I hope I can actually see the cycle I have created. I’m not going to lose if I spend half the week losing the weekend. Ugh.
I need to get my butt out of bed and do this! I did this morning, but slept in yesterday. I would like to blame Daylight Savings for that–I need to get back into a proper sleep habit.

Well, it has been a while…

Maybe I need to start blogging more.
I need to work on my weekend eating. It is harder when I don’t have a consistent schedule to eat healthier. And I try to “relax” on restrictions during the weekend. Well, this weekend did me in. I had pasta, pizza, biscuit donuts, barbecue. Ugh. And I paid for it on the scale.
I also was sick last week, so I didn’t workout Thursday or Friday (I thought sleep was more important). Some respiratory/sinus thing. I’m over it now, but I still have a cough. I was working out well before that–I have been taking weekends off from workout, but I have been alternating days on 30 Day Shred. I have a vacation coming up, so I thought I would continue to alternate for now and start Ripped in 30 after the trip.
So I got up this morning, yes, after time change (so really, it was 4AM), and worked out. And I packed my breakfast and lunch. And I bought a ton of strawberries for dessert rather than cookies this week. Yum! I can’t wait for strawberries.
I know I can lose it–I just question why I do this to myself. Why I work hard during the week, and then let it all go on the weekends. Then I spend the week making up for the weekend. I’m not sure it is worth it anymore. I need to focus on my weekend eating.

DAY 30!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can I put enough exclamation points to show my excitement? Day 30–I wasn’t sure if I would keep this up and I did.
Other good news, it’s my 31st birthday!!!
So what I have taken from this journey?
5.2 lbs lost!
No measurements because I forgot to measure at the beginning (that or too depressed to know the measurements).
Clothes feel looser.
I’m eating way more veggies than before…and like it.
I need to fine tune my breakfasts, but the egg muffins are okay. Just could be better.
I want to continue the workouts during the week, but will probably relax on weekend workouts. Or encourage the family to do something more active.
Jillian wants to kick your butt…but you will enjoy it at the end. She will push you, she won’t sweet talk you, you will hate her and try to punch her face during punches. But she will get you there.
For myself, I set a goal and I did it. I’m stronger and can push myself further than when I started. Now I see the 100 pushup and 200 situp challenge and think I should start those too. I see that I’m challenging myself.
Day 30 of the 30 Day Shred and I AM DONE!!!!
