Confessions: I Did It Edition!

Here it is Tuesday again so it is time to confess the good, the bad, and the great of the week for the Sisters! This has been a pretty good week so I will start with the bad to get that over with.

I had started down the slippery road of drinking cokes again EVERY time I left the house to run an errand or going out to eat. I recognize the pattern now and desperately wanted to stop it before it got totally out of hand. So I mentioned it to a friend Saturday morning and we are keeping each other accountable! No cokes for me. No Dr Pepper for her! So far I'm doing great, I haven't had one since Saturday morning!

I just finished eating 2 scoops of yummy Culvers ice cream! I'm not sorry just figured I should confess since I'm writing a confessions post!

Now onto the good and the great! At the beginning of January I made the decision to exercise every morning in January using Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred DVD. I started on the first and worked my way through each level. 10 Days per level, 3 levels. But wait there are 31 days in January. What about today? So last week as I started getting close to the end I decided I wanted to do ALL 3 LEVELS on the last day of the month! That was this morning!

And guess what? I did it! I did all 3 levels back to back this morning! I was a hot sweaty mess when I was done but oh my! What a great feeling! Now I feel as though I can accomplish other goals I have for myself!

Exercise Goal for February....workout 6 days a week alternating the workouts and continuing to workout in the morning! I know I can do it! I've proven to myself that I can!

Ahhhhh you definitely deserved those two scoops! All 3 levels in one day, that's amazing! Like she says, you don't get to the finish and quit! :)

I am on Day 5 of Ripped in 30. I love this workout - definitely a step up in pace from 30 Day Shred (i.e. you go from plank jacks to mountain climbers back to back, then squat thrusts in the next circuit.) It's a great workout, though - I highly recommend it. Way to go, Ann!
