Day 6 ChaLEAN Extreme

Wow finished up day 6 today, I get a rest day tomorrow. I am so loving this workout, my body is so sore, which makes me very happy. That means I am doing it right and getting a good workout YAY!! On a very happy note, I went shopping yesterday. A small history lesson, in 2010 (beginning ) or late 2009 I went to a store and had to buy some sweat pants/workout pants (yeah I didn't workout though). I bought a size 26W-28W. I have been swimming in those for the past few months, and decided it was time to get some better fitting pants. So I went to Walmart. Now for those who shop there, their clothes are sometimes a little small so I always expect to buy at least a size bigger then I normally am. I am happy to say that yesterday I bought pants that where a size 16-18. No W in that one. It feels so good. I know I still have a long way to go, but that was the boost I was really needing, now I need to get my but in gear and starting adding a healthy diet to my already very healthy exercise plan. I can do this and so can you!! As Chalene would say LETS GET EXTREME!!!

ChaLEAN Extreme Day 1

What a great workout, nothing like lifting weights to get you motivated right. I am really looking forward to this workout, I have tomorrow off (this is the way the schedule is set up) But I start my strict healthy eating tomorrow (why not today you ask) well that's simple, I have to go grocery shopping to get the food. I am so excited about this workout, and healthy eating, still get to eat yummy food but in smaller portions, this family is going green (in a sense lol). Next stop Circuit burn 2 woot woot!! Have a great day everyone!!

I am back

I know it has been awhile since I posted. I am sorry some unexpected things have happened (had a few meltdowns) in the past couple of weeks that have made me rethink what I am and am not doing. First let me start off with I got to day 30 of Insanity and just wasn't into it anymore. I wanted to work out but Insanity was getting so hard I could only do a third to a half of the workouts, and modifying most of the workout was just getting boring. So after some careful looking, I have decided to stop Insanity and not finish it up. I know some may say I am a quitter, but when you get to a point where you just aren't in it anymore, pushing yourself to do it, won't help you it just makes the workouts pointless. I am there with Insanity. So now I am going to start up on Saturday ChaLEAN Extreme. I am super excited about it. I got Turbo Fires Greatest HIIT's and did that this morning, let me tell you I am so energized and excited about my workouts I LOVE Chalene, she is so excited about the workouts, the music is so much fun, who doesn't feel good with some fun music playing while working out. I can't wait to start. I am not giving up on my weight loss, I am just revamping how I am doing it. I have been under a lot of stress, and have had some personal issues lately that coupled with not eating right or exercising and I gained a lot of weight (amazing how it takes no time to gain but forever to lose it right). So I am back to my lose 100 pound goal, which frustrates me and gets me excited all at the same time. I KNOW that I can do this, and I know that I WILL do this. I talked to a friend recently and we have decided to set a goal for a marathon (a short marathon of course) to run in 2014, then a nice SPA day afterwards, so I have this year to lose my weight and next year to train for the marathon, I am actually excited about this goal. Ok ya'll its time to get our butts in gear and get moving, I will do better and keeping everyone posted on how I am doing. and my weight loss. I have this and if I can do it you can to!!
