With my tail between my legs I went back to getting my butt kicked by Jillian Michaels via the 30 Day Shred. It's crazy how quickly muscle memory works. I mean, it's still a bit tough and I definitely can't hang for the entire set of every exercise but I still feel pretty good. It must be working because I got a lovely comment about the way my legs look!
Again, I have (loosely) been eating clean. I find it really difficult to eat breakfast in the morning, especially when Monster wakes up in a funk. And I have noticed that if I don't eat breakfast in the morning that I am starving late at night. Perhaps it's because Roy is home and able to hold her while I (finally) eat...? Not only that but I am breastfeeding and all I think about is eating! I did make one small tweak to make eating clean easier. I chopped up the fresh veggies that I bought from the market and placed them in the fridge for easy, one handed access during the week. I also tried to make sure that I had easy things to munch on: hummus for my veggies if I wasn't feeling a salad, natural peanut butter, organic bread, fruit, string cheese, etc.
I feel like I am mentally in a place to get my weight down to where I want to be. I feel like if I have already gotten down to a size 8 which is what I was before I got pregnant then it is totally doable to reach my size 4 goal. All I have been doing in the 30 Day Shred (hardly) and eating clean (loosely), I go on a long walk with my brother once a week and that's about it. I can't wait to see what happens when I start back at work!
Until next time...
