okay, yes I want to have another baby as my obsession with the baby story continues. and as you read in my last meme, I would rather those a few pounds, okay 15 to be exact, before getting pregnant. what's a historically awful dieter and exerciser to do?
um, call jillian michaels, of course! well, I did not have her number or the cash for private lessons, so I headed to target and bought her shred dvd. I have been hearing the buzz about jillian's workout for awhile. so many bloggers seem to love it and I have been following bacardi mama along her journey. she informed me that the team over at shrinking jeans will be starting another challenge on may 11th. now, I am not sure if I am the group challenge kind of gal, but will most definitely follow along and hopefully get some tips!
but I have joined jillian's fan club. I bought the dvd after a gym trip on sunday and did the level 1 routine on monday. um, let's discuss for a minute how LEVEL 1 kicked my butt. LEVEL 1 KICKED MOMMIE'S BUTT!!! jillian + running should help me achieve my goal. as for my diet, well all I can say is I will try. I hate dieting. I loathe dieting. I would love to cook three meals a day. heck, I would love to cook ONE meal a day, but I don't. this makes dieting, next to impossible.
so, here is where I need your advice! what should be apart of my diet? tips, recipes, advice all welcomed. a little about me -- I am an all natural girl. I steer clear of artificial sugars, processed foods, preservatives, etc... I know I should eat more veggies and fruit. never skip breakfast (which I have gotten so much better at). I should cut out the fat (butter, cream cheese, cheese in general!). I should go to carb rehab! I know how to diet. I just find it so time consuming. all the planning and counting...
anyway, my pursuit to my pre-double l bod is in full effect. even though you have total read this before. this time I have a mission. a goal :)
starting weight - 139. yes, I know my scale is way off, but that's what it reads and thats what I am going with... I will make sure I always weigh myself on my nice, liar of a scale that is consistently understating my weight. but since its consistent, I can actually track pounds lost, just not my actual weight :) this false impression of my actual weight during pregnancy came in handy. yes, I knew I gained 55 pounds!!! I just didn't know my actual weight and never listened to the nurse as she was babbling about it at my weekly doctor's appointments.
okay, I am off to shred. actually to make double l some dinner, but will be shredding later...
