Healthy You Challenge Update #2

It's been a long time. A really long time.

I guess I haven't been posting because I haven't had any victories to post about. The scale was up a bit at yesterday's weigh-in. I really should be grateful for being up only 0.8 pounds. Especially since my eating has been complete rubbish.

I did finally get to working out yesterday. I just had the sudden urge to sweat and grunt on my way home from work yesterday. I completed Day 1 of Level 1 of the 30 Day Shred. I L-O-V-E this workout. It's short and straight to the point. How much better can you get than that?

I realized lots of things this weekend. I am just too fat! I ran some errands and I got sooo tired of just walking. My lower back started hurting, too. It's been doing that a lot lately. I'm guessing it's from the weight in the front. Makes me feel OLD. That's not a great feeling at all.

I'm hoping the urge to workout lasts longer than just a couple of days. 3 days is about as long as I can go before I give up. I can't afford to give up this time. It's just too darn hot. The extra weight is making me so darn uncomfortable (this is what it must feel like to be pregnant). And I'm running out of things to wear. =(


  1. You can do it! Go, go, go!

    My dad used to have a saying: Your back will be fine if you take care of your front. I guess in his 30s he had a lot of back problems. The doctor he saw told him that, so dad lost weight and never had back problems again.

    If only it were that easy.

    I hear your complaints. You'll get there! While my back still hurts, it's a lot better than it was.

  2. Keep up the great work. Weight loss is for a the long haul. It takes time. Enjoy the journey! 0.8 lbs is better than none, right?!

  3. Keep up with that Shred workout & you'll get back to losses!
    You can do it - push aside the negativity & think about what the future can hold if you're willing to put in the work.
    Hang in there!

  4. You can do it. :) And you don't need to reserve your blog only for victories. Share the down times too. You might just be surprised to find how many people know exactly how you're feeling.
