Shredding

by statia on December 8, 2009

So, I’ve come to realize, since having kids, that I am not getting any younger.  I am also not getting any thinner.   I put on A LOT of weight with the Mini.  More than I should have, and in hindsight, more than I really wanted to, but man, did that Halloween candy taste really good at the time.  As did the pie, and the ice cream and the ribs, and… and..

Suddenly, I am very hungry.

I lost a good portion of it, but held onto the last 20 or so pounds and never really put forth a whole lot of effort to do anything about it.  I became a casual workout person (worker outer?).   I hate working out.  Almost as much as I hate eggnog and raisins, and people I really fucking hate both of those.  If you really wanted me to hate you, you’d give me both of these things.   So I just kept letting working out, kind of fall by the wayside.  Making up excuses.

With LG, I was respectable with the weight gain, and I lost nearly all of the weight right off the bat.

And then I gained 7 pounds of it back.

I hate the way I look now.  I absolutely hate it, but it’s come to my attention that unless I actually DO something about it, I’m not really going to see much in the way of progress.  So I jumped on the trendy bandwagon and started doing the 30 day shred.

For 25 minutes of exercise, it’s a serious ass kicker.  It took me all of about 5 minutes to hate Jillian Michaels, with her bluntness.  ”If you want results, they’re not coming for free.”  What the hell is THAT nonsense about?  Why can’t I just sit on the sofa and have results come to me?  And while they’re at it? Do my laundry?   This is wholly unfair.

So, here I am a week into the shred.  I’ve been using the “lose it!” app on my iPhone, to keep me honest with the calories.  So far, I can’t really say I’ve lost weight, but I feel a little more redistributed.

My sister is getting married next month, and the only goal I have is to not look like a burrito in a dress.  What can I say, I am low.

I’ve been using the Lose It! app for the past 8 weeks or so. I had about 12 pounds of baby weight I wanted to get rid of and, sadly, absolutely no time to exercise (I rather enjoy it). I’ve lost a pound a week just counting/restricting calories.
