First and foremost, I gotta give a shoutskies to my FMOH, Whitney, and tell her I hope she feels better.  FYI, a little Suzie is usually the best medicine.

On to the topic at hand...

An informal proposal was made by Alycia over at Crowley Party to her readers to join her in doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred Video.  I have not-so-exitedly decided to it for a few reasons:

1.  My weight gain that y'all read about last week.
2.  In hopes of kicking some sort of plateau in the arse.
3.  Challenging myself.
4.  I've had the video for about a year and never done it.

Like I said before, I have been really working hard on getting fit and feeling strong; my ultimate goal is to feel good and be able to keep up with my boys, so I try really hard not to focus on the # on the scale,  but that's been my mentality for YEARS now.  It's a work in progress.

Truth is, I do feel super strong, so I am working on focusing my attention there.  Losing weight without activity is possible, but it's pointless.  I've done it all from starving myself, fad diets, and other unspeakables to lose the weight, but it always comes back

After learning so much about the human body, it's so clear to me that physical activity is the key (thank you, Dr. Ma!).  Calories in v. calories out, folks.  Simple math.

{bring it on, Jillian}
I hope to do 30 consecutive days, but I'm not sure that's entirely possible; 30 almost consecutive days is pretty good.  This on top of the running should really kick my butt.  At least that's what I'm hoping for!

Updates to come!
