Motivational Monday...

HaPPy MoNdAy!

After yesterday’s post outta sheer frustration (and THANK YOU for all the encouraging comments – I am so VERY appreciative!) I decided that it was time to stop boo-hooing about it all and DO SOMETHING already!

Hence the picture for Motivational Monday.
It rang so true!

So I am back to tracking my food – every little morsel – on
Sparkpeople! (I am Purple_Goddess if ya wanna say hi!)
I am back to eating strictly vegan – no excuses!
NO SODA – not even diet!
MORE water!
I started
Jillian Micahels 30 Day Shred today.

In a word – wow.
No really – it is the most unassuming yet KICKASS workout I have ever done. It’s pretty old school in some respects but it will leave you wondering what the heck just happened to ya!
I mean granted I am not in the best shape of my life, but I am certainly no slack. I have been exercising pretty regularly and consider my work *physical*.
But it was the most intense 20 minutes I have had in a VERY long time!

But I did it and didn’t slack – and for that much; I am SUPER stoked and proud.

I plan on doing the program for the 30 days (as is suggested by it’s title) and will track my progress here (of course) as well as a new tab I created under my header titled *shred* where I will post pics, stats, and whatever else comes to mind.

I am psyched to challenge myself in this way and I really hope it’s the kick in the pants I need to get myself past this plateau/hump/slump!

Think I will look like this when the 30 days are done?



  1. Good for you..eating healthy and working out. I just read your last post, and I'm in the same boat. I've been so busy, I haven't had the time (or made the time) to get back to the gym in two weeks. Plus, my son brought home Red Velvet Ice cream, which I am a sucker for! Back to it today though!

  2. I think you will!!!

    Think positive, exercise regularly and eat the way you are, it will all fall into place
    Jilliam Michaels kicks some serious ass and if you can do it that is awesome.

  3. OMG, I have heard about this workout from EVERYONE! I need to do this. Right now. Well, maybe not right now, but soon. Very soon!!!!

  4. Ok, you'll have to keep us updated because I'm going to need to do SOMETHING to get this 30lbs off after baby comes! I can't wait to see how well this works :)

  5. You've encouraged me to get off this computer and out of this Lazy Boy to join you. Seriously. I'm gonna start tomorrow though :-) But I have some workout DVDs that I can use. I'm so glad I stopped by. Thanks.

  6. I know I don't know you, but you are gonna look BETTER than that in 30 days! You can do it!

  7. Stay positive!!
