Weight: +3 lbs
Level: 3 & 2
My husband doesn't have any New Years resolutions, so he says. But yet, he's eating salad like crazy and has starting running again. Maybe it's something I call a resolution, but something he calls a "stress relief." It's nice to come home from work and see that motivation. My husband, in my opinion, doesn't need to lose weight because he is tall and lean, but I think running (as it is for me) is a great stress reliever and just makes you feel good about yourself.
It's hard, when I'm down, to see him motivate. He makes a list, sticks to it, and I just think about things that I want to do, but can barely get off the couch, or am too busy to do anything.
I decided yesterday that it was my New Years Day, a time to start over. I plodded slowly on the treadmill and then, with my husband, did Level 3 of Jillian Michaels (he did not think it was easy, so that made me feel better!). I was one step farther yesterday than I was the day before. Today, I didn't run, but I did Jillian's workout (with a lot of dancing with the kids). This is my personal goal now, as I have no creditability to have any followers (except mom, she'll always be there cheering me on :) because it was by no means 30 days in a row like I had planned!
6 more days to go and I can stop feeling guilty about dissing Jillian!
Tomorrow I'm up for a 6 mile run (my first long one in my marathon training), but have decided not to do Jillian these long run days. Too much for me to handle right now.
