Ceecee- Cleaning & yard work count as exercise!

Amber- You didn't lose it, you're just doing other stuff! That's okay!!


Day 5 of Shred down, 25 more to go! I went for a run tonight - my 1st in over a week. Who would have guess my ARMS would get tired??? I guess they figured they had already done their work for the day, and if I wanted to run, I'd have to do it without them! Halfway through, I felt my fingers getting tingley- they were so swollen they looked like little sausages WTH???
I'm not giving up either workout - my arms will just have to deal with it. LOL Thankfully I'm fine now.

I AM A SIZE 12!!!!!

I went shopping today to look for a dress for an upcoming wedding. I found a 70% off sale and ended up getting a really cute top for super cheap- in a size 12! OMG I haven't worn a 12 since I-don't-know-when. Truthfully, I think I jumped from an 8/10 to a 14 way back in 9th grade. I'm smaller now than I was when I graduated from high school! I still cannot wrap my head around it - INSANE!!! I almost cried in the dressing room when the 14 I tried on was too big and the saleslady had to bring in a smaller size.

Uphill! I bet you're feeling that today...

The funny thing is I was expecting the 14 to be way too small, so to have to try a smaller size is just huge for me. Just going into most of these stores in the mall, I felt like I would be kicked out for being too fat, so to be able to wear something other than the largest size they carry is amazing. It's like, maybe I'm not that fat after all?

Well this is the crappiest long weekend ever. We usually go camping up north labour day weekend with my dad's family- kinda like a family reunion BUT my grandmother was admitted to the hospital on thursday. She's been battling cancer for a few years now, and the dr doesn't think she'll last the weekend. My sisters & I drove the 3 hrs to the hospital yesterday and got the call that my mom's aunt had passed away that morning. I wasn't close to my gramma at all (I wrote a detailed post in the PG) but I want to be there as much as possible for my dad. And now we have a funeral and school starting the same day and another pending funeral coming up

This is crazy! I can't wrap my head around the fact that my gramma is laying in a hospital just waiting for God to take her. Her kids have all taken hotel rooms to be near her and take turns sitting with her around the clock. She's comfortable, not in much pain, basically just waiting for her organs to shut down.

Thanks girls. The funeral for my great aunt was today, and I swear I almost had a breakdown. I bawled through the whole service It's so embarressing, once the waterworks start, I can't stop them. I was still tearing up on the way home. I wasn't close to her at all, but seeing her kids/grandkids/great grandkids all upset was awful. Plus, I know I have to do this again very soon for my gramma and it makes me sad that we weren't that close.

On a good note, we started school today. My son (5) whipped through his book work like it was nothing. Obviously my worries that he'd lose everything over the summer were a waste of time. The only issue we had was keeping ds from giving his sister all the answers!

Okay, on to my plan. I finished Shred day 12 today - my 2nd day on level 2. OMG she is tough! Just when I got to the point that level 1 was okay, I try level 2 only to have my a$$ handed to me again! All the plank crap is killing me Hopefully tomorrow I'll have time for a run. I've horribly busy, but still on plan, plugging away. Things should calm down soon, I hope.

Yeah on the Shred, planks are killers, they will really shape your arms and abs!

I'm warning ya now Cassidy, you're gonna HATE her the first few days. Even when you don't want to, keep it up! Trust me it does get easier by the end of the first week.

I went for a run this morning, in horrible wind & cold rain. I had a hard time catching my breath in the wind and had to walk quite a bit. I still finished 5k in 37 min, so not as bad as I thought. I still have to do the shred tonight- really not looking forward to it. My arms & back are killing me! Funny thing though, I just realized the recommended weights for the shred are 2-3lbs, and mine are 5! LOL No wonder I'm sore!

I'm glad you did it Ceecee. I only made it through the first rotation the first time I did it. I swear, it will get easier! The key is to keep it up - especially tomorrow when you're sore (sorry, but you will be). I think day 3 was when it started feeling really good

Amber, you'd be laughing if you tried it now. I bet you do this x100 with the trainer!

So I did my run this morning, shred this afternoon, then went through all of our fall/winter clothes. I'm half proud-half mortified at the clothes I wore last year. I only have one pair of pants that fit - and that's cause I got them for mothers day. I love that I'm obviously smaller but I really don't have the funds to buy a new wardrobe. UGH. I hope my business really takes off soon!

185.8 That's the only good news I have today...

I went to see my Gramma again today We've never been close b/c she was a really nasty person when I was young. I saw her last week (which I thought would be the last time) and all she talked about was how glad she was that I had lost so much weight and how great I looked. To the point that I was kinda insulted the way it was all she cared about, anyway I thought that was a rotten visit. Today that was blown out of the water. All she talked about was how her only mistake was not teaching my dad (her son) to have enough guts to stand up to my mom. She made it sound as though it was all his fault that we never had a relationship. I was so hurt/angry that she would speak of my Daddy, who is the bravest man I know, in such a horrible way especially when he's going through so much. It took plenty of "guts" to distance himself & his family from her and her craziness IMO. Obviously I didn't correct her- there's no way I could tell her how awful a person I think she was/is on her deathbed. I ended up so upset that before long I was sobbing and could not get it together so I left.

I know it was her way of saying she knows she missed out on getting to know me (she actually called me a stranger off the street!), and the meds have a way of removing your filter. I'm just so upset for my dad. He's been by her side for most of the last week (taking shifts with his siblings) and he does not need to take her abuse- especially now. Will it never end?

First off... Congrats on your new low!!!! You deserve it!!!!

AAAWWW man what a day, what a day!!!!! Yea she is really missing out on how great of a person you are Kristyn. The only reason she was saying that was becasue she had nothing else to say. But elderly people get so caught up in there ways, it is really hard for them to change. I am sorry you are having to go through this. And your dad... poor man. But At least he respects his mom enough to be there for her in her time of need regardless of what is ever said... THAT'S A REAL MAN!!!!

Amber- I'm so proud of you! Yay for your mojo You do so much, it's hard on your body to keep up, esp on diet food. I think it's wise of you to not do it all at once. I know the shred has had a horrible effect on my runs - I haven't done more than 10 min without walking since I started doing both. I'm going for 30 days straight (missed today though) for max results, then I'll decide on a regular plan, prob sticking to one or the other.

I've been sitting here sipping a (very irish) coffee, going over the events of today. I know my gramma didn't mean to come off the way she did. She's on a lot of meds, and she seemed to have difficulty keeping her thoughts straight. We weren't the only ones she picked on, she's been pretty rough on all her kids. I can't lay judgement on her, she will meet her maker soon, and it really will be too late to make amends when she realizes her mistakes. I really pity her, it's horrible she has to go through this, I'm sure she's in more pain than she lets on. I hope to God I never have to go through such agony, but if I do, I pray I would be a comfort to those around me.

You have a big heart hun!!! I am sure you needed that coffee, and indeed it is a shame to not treat people well while we are here on earth, cause we dont get a second chance!!!

Shred will change your bod, somewhere on here a girl had a profile about doing shred she was pretty thin, but man the change in her whole body she lost like 4 pounds and 2 dress sizes!!!

I had my spin class with the really good instructor he is a killer, I was weak when I left so I am glad it is the high carb day today, tomorrow is gym and running again!

I think I read that one too - I hadn't heard of the shred until I found this board. Candi something? As for results, I am def firming up. I've lost weight, but gained inches in the last month Funny story: The other day DH grabbed my behind and told me to stop flexing. I was like, I'M NOT!!!

I went to mu cousin's wedding last night, what a great time. I cheated a bit, hit the dessert table pretty hard and had a few (or more!) drinks, but I'm pretty sure I danced them off so no regrets. My Dad almost had me in tears- we danced to "our song" and he told me how proud he is of me- how healthy & happy I am, and all my hard work. Gotta love him! I had people, even some strangers, come up to me all night to say how great I looked One of my cousins even toasted me at our table.

Yeah that is not the girl I saw the girl I saw was like 140 pounds and ended up down to a size 2 and like 135, it was amazing how she looked!!

mama that is so awesome, it is so great when people notice and support your healthy lifestyle choices, you never get tired of hearing it, it is that which keeps us going and makes it all worth it, and indeed although we all want to look good, the cardiovascular improvements we have made running cant be ignored!!!!! You are so doing it girlie, and I am so proud of you!!!!

Soooo...I have to confess I had a pizza OD last night! LOL We kept joking all night at the wedding that we were going to order pizza to the hall and never did, so when my mom ordered pizza for Sunday dinner I couldn't turn it down! MMMMM pizza & coke = HEAVEN!!

I'm back full force today, weighed in at 186.0 (+.2) which is awesome considering all the crap I ate this weekend. I wonder if the smaller you get the less water you retain? I did the shred level 2 today. Honestly, I don't know which day I'm on. I had to skip a few days last week. Honestly last week was so crazy I was lucky if I knew which DAY it was, let alone have time to worry about food & exercise.
