day 163 (day 2 / week 24)

I just got finished exercising, and I feel great today. I took some of your suggestions and ran with it!

Today I did the 30 day shred (day 12) and did Level 3 and then did Level 1 immediately after. I kept my hand weights doing level 1, and used them for a lot of the cardio circuits (jumping jacks, butt kicks and shadow boxing with the hand weights), and did some harder variations in level 1, from level 3 (like the traveling push ups--I love those!). This is exciting and should keep me busy for a while, cause if you do the math, there are a ton of mathematical variations, if you switch everything around. I think I will double up on the days that I don't walk, and will just do one, on my (non) rest days...we'll see :).

I am still trippin' on the fact that I have to eat more calories. I will trust what I learned in school, and trust what the professionals at Sparkpeople say and just do it. If I start gaining weight though (well mostly if my pants get smaller) I'm stopping! I did eat 1350 calories yesterday, and feel great today, so who knows! I'll give it a few weeks to prove me wrong (lol) :).

I also said this (that I would stop if I gained weight because you don't count those calories) when I started taking the Triple Omega's a few weeks ago, and it never happened! My MIL was TOTALLY right (I still don't understand it though--calories in calories out??)! My skin feels and looks better, and so does my hair *shrugs*. I have...scratch that, I HAD flip flop feet (dried crusty feet--you guys know what I'm talking about, right?) and they look so beautimus now! Not dried and crusty at all! You wouldn't even know that I practically live out of my flip flops. Taking my omegas 3x a day really helped (my version of Udo Oil 2:1:1 formula since I can't afford that). If you guys want to know what that is, let me know! Super simple and I think that CVS has them buy one/get one free right now!

Hope you guys have an excellent weekend!

Make it count!

I can do this. I am a star.

I'm shredding right now too!! What a great workout.

I'd love to know about your omega oils that you've been taking. I need better skin and hair. :)

Okay, email me with the Omegas I'm supposed to be taking...my feet are a tiny bit crackly...

Good job being brave and trying to eat enough! I know it is scary, but if you've watched BL, you've seen when the contestants hurt themselves by not eating enough...why would you be any different!

You are a star!

You totally had me at renewed flip flop feet! I'd like the Omega info too. Do they give you funky fish burps?? In comments to yesterday's post you called me Silly for waiting til June 15 to start my 30 Day Shred. YOU CALLED ME SILLY!! Hmph! So, just because of that, I started TODAY! Fridays are my hardest days to work out, and I started on a Friday! Thankuverymuch for that push! Thanks for the info on your edu-ma-cation. Now that you're in LV you are all set! Thanks for the daily inspiration and maybe a little, friendly, gentle butt-kicking too. Now, go eat something healthy to get in all your calories, Silly! :)

Allyson, I'm glad you're shredding with us! I'll post about the triple omegas I'm taking tomorrow that have totally helped renew my crusty feet :).

I'm sorry I called you silly loree! I was totally just teasing you! I meant nothing bad by "silly" at all, but if it helped, I'm glad! One of the things that I want to show people with my blog, is that we can do this (find time to exercise and get healthy) despite whatever is in our way. The fact that Friday is your hardest day to work out, and you did it is AWESOME!!!! I am sorry for calling you silly though (and yes, I'm silly too!)!

The softgels I'm taking now, don't give me fishy burps, unless i take them all at one time (lol). I don't do that often...i can actually count 3 times that I can recall having fish burps, and it was for this reason. :)

Oh my, I didn't mean to scold you for calling me silly! I don't even think you called me silly, I think you said waiting to start was silly. :) Melissa, thanks so much for doing that and no worries! No apology necessary!
