day 1

YIKES! so i started Jillian Michaels' "30 day shred" today after hearing so much buzz about it. i'm hoping that it will be my go-to work out while the weather is still too gross and dark for running outside. i started running with my sister this past fall and was just starting to really enjoy it, crave it even, when the weather started to get really cold and wet. the wet i can deal with, but when it comes to running in the cold i'm a big baby and just really struggle with it. my daughter was also at a really clingy stage at that point and would scream the entire time i was gone.

anyways it's a new year and a fresh start. i figure that seeing as how i turned 28 last week it was time to get serious and get in shape so that i'm not heading into my next decade over weight and out of shape. i have a hard time excepting that i have as much weight to loose as i do. i don't think it's even the amount of weight so much as how long i've let it go and how much i've let it effect my identity and day-to-day life.

i want a change. i want myself back.

this is my journey to a better me.


  1. yay! im proud of you! my husband and I just decided to start running together each week so you and I will have to keep each other accountable with our progress okay?! best of luck to ya!
