Yesterday, I decided to pick up Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred based on the rave reviews and successes my "mommy group" girls have been posting on FB. I was actually looking for a bathroom scale (which I never found) and saw that the DVD was on sale.
Last night, after Bubs was asleep and Bug was in the bath, I threw the DVD in. About seven agonizing minutes in, a friend feverishly texting me and Bug screaming to get out of the bath forced (okay, allowed) my finger to hit the stop button. I seriously wondered what I was doing trying to go from 0 to 60 in a split second after the warm up and the first circuit.
Tonight, I changed into exercise clothes, said a prayer (no, really, I prayed for the strength to get through it!), and hit start. After the first circuit, I wanted to quit and "try again tomorrow" but I plowed through. After the second circuit, I was getting tired, but kept on trucking because I knew it would be over soon. By the end of the third, I was damned proud of myself. I DID IT! All my 240ish pounds made it through!
Yes, I just admitted it. I have WAY more than the 18 pounds it seems like most of the internet is trying to lose. Like I said, I never did find that scale, so I can't give a starting weight or know exactly where I'm at. For now, I'll say that I'm in a "tight 18W" jeans. I'll take a pic in my jeans that started fitting right before I got pregnant with Bubs and post it soon, along with the t-shirt that motivated me to get down to business about my weight loss. Hopefully, they'll both fit better in a month!
