Day 12 (day 5 / week 2)

I first want to thank everyone for the great comments and suggestions. All of your comments made me super excited to exercise today! I looked forward to it, thanks to you guys :).

Thank you Steph for the mention on your blog today. I feel like the more people that know that I am doing this, the more excited I am do actually do it! I am making the pineapple chicken for dinner and will lay it on a bed of brown rice and a side of green veggies since those are Logan's favorites (strange kid).

Today I did "Ramp It Up!" again. I know I sound like a broken record with this one, but it's a 6 week program. I found the directions (that I lost) on the internet, but they are backwards (see pic below). I just googled "simple steps to success" (the name of the directions) and found only 1 image result that fit what I was looking for. I remembered what it looked like, so that helped. A girl, that also did Slim in 6, posted her completed calendar (she used the backside) I am ignoring everything she wrote, and am focusing on the background colors lol. From what I remember (and am assuming) it has "Start It Up!" for 2 days, "Ramp It Up!" for 2 weeks and 5 days, and the last one, "Burn It Up!" for 3 full weeks. This is what I am going to do.


(pic taken from "get fit with barbie")

I made it through the yoga phase unannoyed (shirt tucked in) and am proud of myself today. I can tell that I am getting stronger. I was excited to exercise for 2 reasons. You guys and I knew it would warm me up (my toes were numb I was so cold).

Thank you again for the comments and motivation! You really don't know how much it helps me and gives me willpower!

I was SO excited to exercise today! Thank you again!

I can do this. I am a star.

Oh good, you were happier today! I wasn't! lol! I was cold and felt lazy. But I got out the video and I did it!! Afterwards I felt warmer and more energetic. I even gave my dog a bath! I had the same problem with yoga, my shirt falling over my head when I am upside down! I will tuck in my shirt next time! Reading your blog is making me more into actually doing the exersizes, it makes me feel if I don't, then I let more than just myself down, so it's a big motivation. You did it, why can't I? 8^D

Half the time our 58 degree apartment is my main motivating factor to work out! Supposedly being active also helps people who are always cold be less always cold. (I have not found this to be the case, but good luck to you.)

I just read about you on the year of crockpotting blog. As a sister in Christ, I am honored to pray for your success. Like you, I am a 'big girl'. You've inspired me to stop making excused and do a little something everyday. A little is better than nothing. Good Luck! You can do it. Your a star!
God Bless,
Ellen

Hi, Just found your blog from Steph's (crockpot lady) blog. Awesome challenge! I have been doing the same thru sparkpeople.com, a bootcamp team. They have 10 minute videos, great for time crunches and its all free. Good luck you can do this!

You can do it Destiny! :) I got a phantom aroma reading "dog bath." Thanks for exercising with me!

OMG Ellie...58 degrees? I'm such a wimp complaining about 65 degrees. I give you mad props for working out in that meat locker ;).

Thank you missellen! I think just doing a little something everyday will really help us! I will pray for you too. :)

I have never heard of sparkpeople.com Stephanie, but I will look into it. Thank you and good luck with your resolution as well!
