Ok…so yesterday when I said I didn’t feel anything…I need to retract that lol. Today, I felt something. I felt it in my hips and lower abs all day long, which was great! I felt it in my hip joints where my legs meet my torso…yowza! So today’s workout was a little more intense. I worked out hard, as hard as I could without blacking out…there were times when I felt I would when I was doing those push ups, omg. I did Daily Burn’s Strength and Cardio today. It hurt like a mofo lol. My legs shook, my arms shook, my head let floaty…I had to cool don after that a little, and it was amazing.
I didn’t eat breakfast again today. Today, I had no breakfast, two instant oatmeals, two tablespoons of veggie creme cheese, some black olive and garlic hummus and some almond crackers, dinner was brussel sprouts, an apple walnuts and maple syrup all fried and baked to delicious perfection. I drank lots of water also. My tongue has that salt taste on it from the crackers and hummus. I didn’t eat a lot today and my body is hungry so I’m baking some fries…soooo bad of me. 😦
I also realized I didn’t set any goals. My goal by day 30, is to have lost at least eight pounds. My overall goal is to loose 130 pounds. Let’s not get a head of ourselves. For the next three months, I want to focus on loosing ten percent of my body weight, which would be 28 pounds. Daily Burn and some good planning will help me with that I think.
So here i to day three of my 365 day self challenge. I quit smoking six months ago, I can do this too! I believe in myself and the strength of power and perseverance. I can do this!!!

Today’s workout was’t that fulfilling. My body shook and my legs feel like jello, but I did not get a lot of tension release in my back. My lower abs got a little workout but not so much my upper body. The workout was called Core 1, so that makes sense to a degree. I need to focus more, I’m thinking.
Not so great eating habits today. The first week of the nutrition aspect of thi program focuses on eating breakfast…I did not eat breakfast today. I woke up ;ate and didn’t get a chance. I also forgot my lunch in the fridge. I had left over Pizza Hut Alfredo pasta and a piece of garlic bread or lunch. Tonight for dinner I am having an amazing white bean salad from 101 Cookbooks. An amazing blog that I get a lot of my vegetarian recipes from. I will try again tomorrow to eat breakfast.
I have been trying to get fit for years. For some reason, I am unable to maintain the motivation that it takes to do this. et my eating habits go, my house go, everything. I am full of distractions, excuses, lack of will power. I push myself to much or not enough. Either way, I need to stop.
Today I started Daily Burn. I just completed the first workout of “True Beginner.”
Eight years ago, I would have blown that work out away…now, my head feels light and I’m nauseous….over simple movements. This tells me that my health is in the worst shape it has ever been. My feet and legs swell if I eat too much salt. My heart rate accelerates from walking too far, and by too far I mean across a parking lot. I weigh the most I ever have. My face is puffy and my clothes are tight and uncomfortable.
I need to change this. I will change this, or I will die. Today, Sunday October 4, 2015, is the day I start my new way of life. It will be challenging, it will be a struggle, some days will be better, some will be bad, but I will not give up. I quit smoking six months ago, after five years of smoking. I can do this. After quitting I gained 30 pounds. I was already obese, now I am obese class three.
I am 35 years old.
I am 5’7″ tall.
I weigh in at 279 pounds.
My BMI is 43.7
This will change, This must change, This is going to change.
