Link UP & Boston

It's Tuesday Y'all, I couldn't even bring myself to write Happy Tuesday because like everyone else in the nation we are mourning and saddened by the tragedy in Boston. I won't pretend that I am a runner or a person that will be running a marathon anytime soon but I am an American and my heart really hurts for those people and their families who has been affected by this truly senseless tragedy.  I am really scared for my children's future. For the thought of not even being able to watch or be a part of an event that should be an innocent gathering of families and friends.  I just think all we can do is get on our knees and pray.
On the exercise and fitness note I am on level 2 of JM 30 Day Shred and let me just say it is a love hate relationship!! I hate the work out itself I am not good with all the planking and I probably look like a hippo with a broke leg doing all the exercises.  When I am done however I feel empowered and I feel really good about sticking with it and completing it because I can tell you half way through it I just really REALLY want to quit.  I sweat major bullets the entire time and when I am done I feel like I just rocked that shit. I guess that is how outta shape I am but as hard as it is and as tired as I feel I also feel some pride in myself. Proud that I didn't give up and I continued, proud that I am at least feeling results maybe not scale results but I am noticing a change in my clothes which is AWESOME!! There is nothing worse then not feeling comfortable in your clothes. 
I only have 15 more days left on my diet bet and I have to lose 3.8 more pounds.  I don't know if I will be able to accomplish it but I can tell you it has kept me motivated and has kept my goal in the forefront of my mind. 
We have a pretty eventful next few weeks coming up.  My mother-n-law is coming to visit and maybe most not be excited about this but I love her and we always have a great time. Then a week after she leaves we are moving, which I hate by the way.  But, I am excited because the house we are moving too is bigger and has a lot more room, we have outgrown the house we are in so it will be nice to have a little breathing room. 
Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!
Love Ya Mean It...


  1. Jillian is HARD!! Good for you for sticking with it. I think I'm going to do 30 day shred next. I laughed at the hippo with the broken leg image...I thought that was how I looked!! :)

  2. Drink tons of water! I just started drinking tons of water this past week and I lost 2.5 pounds and that was the only thing in my diet that I changed! You CAN do it!


  3. Congrats on your loss and busting that plateau - I hate those darn things!! Good luck on your DietBet, I'll be sending tons of positive "pound-blasting" thoughts!

  4. Congrats on your accomplishments this week! Plateaus are so rough, but you've got this!
