30 Days of Me

Thirty days of me.

I had hubby hide the scales today (I have 3; 1 analog and 2 digital)
I am going to work out and stay under calorie budget for 30 days, not worried about weighing in or measuring. Last night I printed off a calendar with all the exercise I wanted to do for the next month.

Yesterday I did 2 of the Biggest Loser workouts and woke up sore. I was going to skip the workout today because of that excuse and then said "You're just giving up if you skip it." I did the low impact cardio work out because I didn't think I would be able to do the slim and sculpt one with how sore I was, I didn't need another excuse to quit! Even the cardio workout was tough. my thighs were burning. But every time I wanted to quit (and I did the whole time) I just kept saying I would be a failure if I did. Day 2 and a failure. I don't think so.

I ate very little today too. I had taken my fiber pills in the morning and had a diet mountain dew. I made hubby's lunch and then popped in the DVD just to "get it over with"

I was a bad bad girl though. I stepped on the scale when I woke up (228) so I was -1 lb. Then an hour ago, I stepped on the scale again (227) so I made hubby hide it. I will not be a slave to the number. It's nice to see a little "progress" right away though, it will keep me motivated. I had also wrote down my measurements too, so I will check those again on day 30

Two days of sensible eating under my belt as well as 3 workouts and I have more energy. I am stupid sore, everything hurts, but that's good. I know I am working out muscles I didn't know I had! Tomorrow is an 11 minute run on the EFX machine and Slim and Sculpt on Biggest Loser.

September 14th is my D-day.

My birthday is shortly after, October 5th. I can't go another year being fat and not doing anything about it. These are my prime years, my youth. I'm not going to be getting any younger from here! (Note: I'll be 23 lol)


  1. What kind of fiber pills do you take? I get my "required" amount from fruits, veggies and whole grains, but I think I should be getting more elsewhere. Thanks!

  2. That sounds like an AWESOME plan. I have developed a bit of a scale compulsion over the past few weeks. If I wasn't doing all these scale-specific challenges and goals I'd join you. Ah....there's always October, lol.

  3. Sounds good. I'm very excited for you!
