Week 1 of 15 recap

So here is what I did this week:
Monday- 30 day shred Level 1 day 1, 6 week six pack Level 1 day 1
Tuesday- 30 day shred Level 1 day 2, 6 week six pack Level 1 day 2, Couch to 5k
Wednesday- 30 day shred Level 1 day 3, 6 week six pack Level 1 day 3
Thursday- 30 day shred Level 1 day 4
Friday- 30 day shred Level 1 day 5, 6 week six pack Level 1 day 4
Saturday- 30 day shred Level 1 day 6
Sunday- 30 day shred Level 1 day 7

I had a migraine on Thursday and ended up leaving work early. They gave me a Phenergan shot for nausea and I was out of it all of Friday too. I did my workout late in the evening. I'm a little behind on the 6 week six pack but it's okay because I work my core during the 30 day shred. The new protein shake is delish. It mixes well and I can def feel it helping with my recovery. I lost 4.1 pounds this first week!! I also joined myfitnesspal and it is sooo addicting. I love it. I'm really encouraged and inspired. I will take my progress pics and measurements after week 2.

I'm kind of upset with myself for not keeping the momentum I had after the wedding going but there's nothing I can do about the past. Right now I'm just looking ahead. I'm picturing myself at my goal size in 14 more weeks. I'm more focused and determined now than I've ever been. So many good things are happening in my life so I'm just pressing ahead. For those of you who are on this journey as well, don't give up. If you eat bad one day, then do better the next or go a little harder at the next workout. Just keep going. Don't look back, don't be too hard on yourself just look ahead and see yourself in your new body in the future. Take care. Q

New Protein Shake

The other day I realized I was running low on my Optimum Nutrition shake and took a trip to GNC. The lady began to tell me about one made by GNC and how a lot of people loved it. I decided to give it a try since it was BOGO 50% off. Most of my shakes have been chocolate and I wanted to try something different. I got 2 of the smaller bags in cookies & cream and strawberry. Here is a pic of what I got:

One serving is 3 scoops and provides 60grams of protein. That's a little too much for me so I will just do one scoop. My goal is to use this as my after workout shake. I have a little ON left so once I try it, I will report back on taste and how it helps with recovery and stamina. Q

104 days until the new year!!!

This video covers what I will be doing for the next 104 days to close out the new year. Check back next week for another one along with progress pics and measurements. Q

Biggest Loser countdown

I have less than 30 days left on the BL challenge at work. I've been out of town this weekend and then sick the last 2 days. I really need to step it up. My goal was to do Insanity but I might have to put it off until October. Anyway, my goal is to go hard these next 20+ so days with 2 a days. I'm doing the couch to 5k program and hope to run my first 5k on the 24th. I haven't decided what I'm going to do but I'm putting it all together right now. For this week at least, I'll probably do 30 day shred and will probably go with my trusty NYBP to close it out. I wanted to share this article that I came across a few weeks ago because I really want to incorporate these moves as well. I will keep you posted. Q

Here is the article.
