Success! Trivia night was a blast. We literally got there thinking it would be about an hour or a bit longer. NOT! Try three hours! But we had a great time. After the first round we were in first place! At the end of three rounds, we finished in third and got $10 off our tab- woo hoo! Anyway, I digress. The real success is that I did not eat anything while I was there! My friends kept talking about ordering fries and all I was thinking the whole time was how am I going to resist these fries? Well, I did it!
When I got home from school today, a nice little package from Amazon.com was waiting for me. Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. Oh hell yes. Now, I am HUGE into Facebook.com. I am not exaggerating when I say that tons of my friends post about this Shred video and its 3 levels, intensity, body firming, etc etc. Well after a couple of weeks of reading their posts, I figured let me jump on the Shred bandwagon! I ordered it last week and was so glad it came today. I had a meeting after school and missed my kickboxing class, so literally when I walked in I tore off the packaging and popped that bad boy in the DVD player. WELL. How many times did I shout “I hate you!” Um, my neighbors probably think I’m nuts. All the grunting and groaning – I felt like one of those creepers at the gym haha! As much as I hate it, I equally LOVE it. It’s only day one, and about 15 minutes after I completed the first work out, and my arms are BURNING! I can’t wait to do it again tomorrow!
If you are unfamiliar with the DVD, check it out here. There are three levels which you work through at your own pace. Each day’s workout is twenty minutes long. The twenty minute workout has three cycles (I know- this is a lot- sorry if I’m losing you!) Each cycle goes like this: 3 minutes strength, 2 minutes cardio, 1 minute abs. And there are no breaks. It’s intense. She yells at you. I love it.
As far as Weight Watchers, I did good today. Stayed at my point level. Can’t say there wasn’t temptation though! I walk into the meeting after school today and the host had a spread of Dark Chocolate M & M’s, Peanut M & M’s, vanilla and strawberry wafers, potato chips, and Life Savers. I’m thinking “This is going to be the death of me.” NOT the case! I measured out a serving of the chips and added it into my points for the day. I was so proud of myself. Believe me, it took a lot of fighting the hunger to not devour everything in sight. And of course, sitting right across from me is this beautiful, skinny, young teacher who is not eating a single thing. So I’m thinking, no wonder she’s so skinny. But she eventually cracked and ate a ton of M & M’s (why was I secretly thinking “YES”!?) I’m evil.
