The Shred

I am doing it. The Shred with Jillian. I have never been a huge fan of workout videos, but I am super excited about this one. I am still running about 15-20 miles a week, but with no soon to run races on the calender, and the Portland Rainy season setteling upon me- I wanted to switch it up a bit.
And also Christmas is 7 weeks away and I really want to get rid of my last bit of baby weight, yes the same ten pounds I have been trying to loose for a year and a half. I gained 50 pounds with my son, lost 40 in 3 months and have yo-yo-ed the other 10 for over a year. Lost it all before our big Lake Powell summer trip and then returned to the repeat. Here is my cycle. Crash diet for a big event, get within one pound of my goal. Celebrate. Attend event. Come home binge out like its my birthday for a week +. Which equals a gain 0f 5+ pounds. You get the picture. But thanks to a new attitude, my spark account to keep my eating in check, (I love that site! Check it out!) my tried and true running, and Jillian who we all love to hate. I will reach my goals by Christmas.
I have been super motivated by another blogger/runner named Syl who did the 30 day shred challenge with Jillian twice, and have decided to do the same Video. Also just to see
I did my measurements today, and I will post final measurements at 30 days.

Day 1:
Chest 33
Waist 27
Hips 38
Thigh 21
Arms 11
Ick. And Ick.
Wow I have a big butt, is all I can say. I don't remember the last time I did measurements. But there is it. EEK. Well I am doing this post as a away to keep accountable. Here are my commitments for the remainder of November.
Do Jillian every day no matter what.
Circuit training 3 times a week.
Running at least 3 times a week 15-20 miles.
Track all food at Spark.com. (No late night eating, this one will be tough , but in a perfect world I would love to stop eating at 6:00.)
Also, cut out the filler carbs, and eat more fruit as a replacement for sugar and dairy. I did my first Shred tonight, Level 1. It wasn't that bad, I will be moving to level 2 tomorrow to see what Miss. Jillian has to throw at me. :)
On a happier note. I love this time of year. Love, love love it. My favorite girl Cherlyn came to Portland in October, I miss her already. Here we are making the most of the rainy day, with my boy- the apple of my eye, "Jack."
