You will hate him when you do the workout. But he is intense. He's real light hearted. I am starting to see some results but I need to do better
About my hair:
weekly shampoo-HE Honey I'm Strong
daily conditioner-HE Honey I'm Strong (use as li)
go to style-Pocahontas braids
I've lost 7 pounds in the past two weeks. I think most of it has to do with being sick last week, so I'll wait another week to celebrate.
2C/3A -- wurly!
So I FINALLY made it back to the gym today! It's bad but I haven't been in like over a month. Between starting the spring semester and taking on a full load of grad courses and different people in my family being sick its been hectic to say the least.

However I was able to get in an hour of straight cardio today and it felt sooooooooooooo good! It was just a reminder of how great I feel every time I leave the gym and how much it helps me with my stress reduction. I'm hoping to get back to the gym tomorrow and get in some weight training along w/some cardio since I have class this weekend and won't be able to go back again until Monday. I will report back!

So I made it back to the gym today and I went EXTREMELY early. It was actually nice because the gym was kinda quiet and each machine that I wanted to get on was available when I wanted it.

I decided to hold off on doing weights until I had gotten back into the routine of going to the gym (at least a week I figure) so I just did an hour of cardio today and some ab exercises.

Well I am still jogging/walking 3x a week since I began in January. Have not missed a day. I have lost 15 lbs but I had already lost some weight before I had started working out. I have unofficially lost a pant size. I think what makes me stick to jogging besides desperation is the fact that I am part time at my job. Frees up a lot of time. I ordered The Firm's Thin in 30 I hope to be a true size 16 by the time my bday rolls around

I've been super super busy lately and I feel bad admitting it but I haven't even been to the gym consistently since the end of January despite still paying for a membership.

I feel even worse since Easter is sooo close and I normally do a cleanse during that time along w/my workout routine. So in the spirit of getting my butt back in gear, I started my cleanse on Sunday and have already dropped 4lbs (yes I know its water weight but its numbers down on the scale none the less which is always a motivator to keep going/continue healthy eating once the cleanse is over) and will continue with it until my body tells me to stop.

I plan on posting each/every other day to keep me motivated/accountable on my journey along w/my exercise reggie which I need to keep light/moderate now since I'm cleansing for the time being.

Hope everyone is doing well in their exercise routines!

So onto day 3. Yesterday was nice so when my son got from school I used that time to take him outside and get my exercise in as well. I probably won't be able to workout today just due to my school schedule but I am still cleansing. Will report back tomorrow!

I haven't checked in lately, but I have finally committed to losing weight. I've been working out/eating better for about 3 weeks and I'm down 5 pounds. I'd like to shed about 15 more, so I'm going to try to be much more consistent. Hope everyone is staying motivated





What kind of cleanse are u doing? I need to do one to lose water weight and motivate me to get this baby weight off. I don't like being chubby and having a gut :*/

So I'm trying to make my health the priority again to stay on track this time so I'm documenting much of what I do (food diary, measurements, weekly weigh ins...although I might change that) and we'll see how that goes!

I tend to get bored pretty easily with things so I like to mix things up and have options. So I am doing a combo of the Master Cleanse and my own version of a Water/Green Tea Cleanse. The recipe for the Master Cleanse you can get off of the web and for the Water/Green Tea I just consume as much water as I like during the day and I drink a cup of decaf green tea in the am as well as mid day (there's a specific one I use for detoxing). That way on the days that I get tired of the Master Cleanse I can just alternate and go back to the water/green tea and vice versa. I have no complaints thus far.


So for my update...I am still cleansing and I have lost a total of 6lbs this week! Yah. I also took my measurements at the beginning of last week as well as today and I lost a half inch every where except for my arm which stayed the same so I am happy.

I am thinking about only weighing in every other week now instead of weekly just because the scale can be unreliable at times and just going with doing weekly measurements but I will see. I will continue to report back on how my cleansing is going. I am also hoping to go for a walk today if the weather holds up.

Hi everyone.
I walked up and down nine flights of stairs at my job, last time I did that my calves were sore for days. I also jogged/walked this Saturday. I'm giving myself a month to show some sort of results.

Despite having been SUPER BUSY and the fact that I haven't been to the gym at all in weeks I have still managed to lose 6 more pounds! At least all the stress I have been experiencing had a silver lining you know. Lol.

Anyway I am back and will be going to the gym on Tuesday. I had to go to the ER today bc I had major pain in my side so I will be resting tomorrow, going to the doc on Monday for a follow up and will start with maybe the treadmill and elliptical on Tuesday to ease back into my workout reggie and eventually back into my cleansing when my body is agreeable.

This weight sooooo needs to be gone by June 1st and that is my goal right now!

I started jillian michaels 30day shred a few days ago. I love it. I missed the other day and today but I was still active all day. She really knows how to motivate u during that 20 minutes. This time next month I want to be down to at least 160, I'm around 169-171 now.
Has anyone else done her workouts b4?

That first day I had to stop and take a break because I thought I was gonna die! LOL. However as you know with everything new there's some adjustment to it but it gets easier in time as long as you are consistent with it.

If you want we can be partners and do the DVD together. I of course can't start it until I go to the doc and get a bit more info about what's going on but I'm hoping to get back to my regular workouts on Tuesday!

I would love to! Having someone to talk to about it will be great. And it will make me feel like I HAVE to do the workout cuz I don't wana come back to the thread lying n saying I did lol.

I'm giving myself a break (lol like I really need one) and I will probably start back up on Monday or Tuesday. I'll stick to the first workout cuz I watched the second and it looks so much harder!
