Fit into the Dress


Day 11/30 of 30DS

I think I messed up on my count! But I'm either day 10 or 11. According to my calender I'm day 11! Oh well..

Yesterday the FH and I started on Phase 2! OMG. OMG! OMG! It's a freaken killer. Reminiscent of the Plyometrics workout of P90X. Man, I never sweated so much in my life!

Second day of it today and boy, I was sweating! A little sore from yesterday's workout. My shoulder muscles were killing me (also reminds me of Slim in 6). I maybe need to get some lighter weights like 2lbs or something (I've been using 5lbs) because I can't really get through an entire set without my arms feeling like they're going to fall off! Maybe it's working? HAHA No Pain no gain right?

Abs were being worked out but I didn't feel like they were being pushed to their limits. I liked the ab workouts in Phase 1.. but this one not so much. A lot of Plank moves (makes me want to do Yoga X again! I miss it!) and stuff...

We'll not too sure if today's workout will be for nothing. Today PacMan fights and its basically a Philippine holiday full of junkfood and beer. Maybe I won't do so much today. And weigh in is tomorrow!! uH-oh...

Okay till next time!


Day 7/30DS

Only day 7. yep.

It's alright because I feel it working. Dangit Jillan Michaels, you are my new Tony Horton.

We missed a few days because of Illness and lack of time. But 30DS is working. I see a noticeable difference in my body and I'm fitting into an old favorite pair of jeans better.

I'm excited to move on to Stage 2. It looks killer and I'm so up for the challenge.

Oh and I agreed to stop weighing myself multiple times a day. It is quite discouraging. So I'll only do so every Sunday. But I weighed myself today (haha) and I'm maintaining so its safe to say I've lost 2 lbs since last Sunday. :)


Diet wise, been craving a hamburger lately. But I've been sneaking in Girl Scout Mint Cookies :X Its only been two days of not being so strict so I hope to straighten out tomorrow. (I better eat the rest of those cookies then... jk)

A good thing though is that I've been crazy craving those Yellow Apples. They are so yummy I think I eat like three a day and have to make tri-weekly trips to Henry's just to fill up.

So 30DS + Good Eating = Happiness


Day 1 of 30 Day Shred (Again!)

Third times a charm!

So yeah... we messed up and ate at a wonderful Casino buffet the day after we started 30DS AND THEN had a busy day of running around doing Wedding Errands. Excuses, excuses. yeah It'll be my fault when I can't fit into my Wedding Dress. I know, I am accountable. Just me.. even if I blame FH for everything, I know it'll be me. So many apologizes to myself a million times over...

So 30DS for the 3rd time was tough. I guess I was compensating for the times I missed and hecka pushed myself to do everything with more force and more reps. But we sweated it out and it was great.

I should also dictate my diet as well today...

Breakfast: 3 mini stack of whole wheat and pecan pancakes, 2 slices of turkey bacon, and an egg overhard and some hot tea (yeah, I know I suck!)

Lunch: a Quick Salad wrap with a Slice of Turkey Breast, Romaine Lettuce, Onions, Pepper Jack Cheese (1/2 slice) on a whole wheat wrap.

Snack: Apple

Dinner: 1/4 Chicken Breast, 1/3 steak, 1 cup wasabi Green beans and steamed veggies and hot tea.

:( Again.. I am accountable!


Here's my RANT!

I am so frustrated with diet and exercising.

It makes me want to make myself throw up. Literally...

In the beginning of the year, my fiance and I agreed we would start watching what we eat and eat as healthy as possible.

Okay... two weeks after that start date... guess who can fit back into their size 34 jeans again? FH! Frustrating...

We eat the same stuff...

I exercise way more than he does...

and who the fuck drops the most weight????????????
and who the fuck is at the same freaken weight they were at the beginning of the year????????

FRUSTRATED SO FRUSTRATED SO FRUSTRATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We hit the 9 month mark and its on and poppin!

I'm double timing my workouts AND I going to be strict as fuck when it comes to diet.....!!!!!!!!!

I will be a slim bride NO effing doubt!!!!!!!!!!!!

(sorry.. the hood comes out when I get mad)

Day 1 of 30 Day Shred

Yep, you heard right. All that bitching led me to believe Jillian Michaels will be my saviour. I did do this program before but I was getting bored of it. I was switching it up with "Slim in 6" because I was getting bored of that too. I stopped the two and then concentrated on diet alone.. Well, you and I know thats only going to get you so far.. So back on the treadmill I went and I'm still going.. started last week on that beeotch.

Then.. the FH becomes inspired by some chick who responded on one of his blog posts. He goes to me, "We should do the 30 Day Shred" Uh, I've been telling you this for the past month already. So long story short, we did it together.

Working out with a partner pushes you to your limit. You want to keep up because he's keeping up. You want to keep going when your partner is grunting because he's tired as hell. You just want to keep going.

So with that said, first day of the 30 day Shred (again). It was good. The transitions to floor exercise gets me a little light headed (p90x at least took it slow and reminded you not to get up so fast). But I felt the burn, I sweated it out.

Jillian (first name bases here) mixes this workout with cardio, strength straining, squats, and abs and everything else. You do a little bit of weights, then return to cardio, then do some squats, then do cardio and then end with abs all in a 20 minute period (minus the stretching). She tells you to keep going... She tells you, "when someone tells you just take the stairs - it is a false message of lethargy."



Tomorrow is the date! JANUARY 17TH, 2010!

The future hubby and I will be starting our new diet and exercise regime in countdown to our wedding date! NOVEMBER 27TH, 2010!

Our diet will be consisting of increase intake of veggies and fruits, no pork, high fiber, decreased carbs, and increase water intake. Also no added sugar and we'll be cutting out the soda...

Exercise will be a combination of things. We will be incorporating elements of P90X as well as more outdoor activity like biking, hiking, etc.

Ahh, I hope to reach my goal of a weight loss of 20lbs, I hope!


Whoa MIA

It's been awhile for a lot of things...

Haven't pressed play on P90X in about a month. I guess I was getting discouraged because I didn't really lose much weight. However, when I stopped, I lost 10lbs. Maybe the stress of work? Could be.

Since it's summer, hopefully I'll be more active.

Well, today we saw our second venue. This one, much in demand (two year waiting list!), could be ours! But our dream date of August 21, 2010 might be pushed back to November 6, 2010. We'll see. Were debating because we have to decide where to have our ceremony since we can't have it there. We have to decide quickly. Maybe over night!


Day 33 of P90X

P90X Lean: Phase 2, Week 5: KENPO X

I LOVE KENPO X! I feel I get the most sweatiest when I do Kenpo X. The more I sweat, the more calories I burn. And the more calories I burn, the more closer I get to my weight goal!

I know I haven't been really on the ball this past week and last with P90X. I guess my previous illness messed me up as well as the stress from my new job. So I'll do what I can do and hopefully I can catch up and get back on track.

Oh, I lost 5lbs in the last week! :)


Day 32 of P90X

Today was a no-go with P90X. I had a massive migraine and it wouldn't go away. Then I had to head to work. PM shift hours are terrible. I'll catch up on the weekend.
