A brand new month already!

Well - the good thing is - I'm starting it off a little lighter. Between the move and custody stress and workouts I've somehow managed to get

Mediation went relatively well. I got home early enough to get my nails done (FINALLY) and do some more unpacking and organizing so I feel like I'm on top of things again. I brought my food for lunch today and my workout clothes so I can go back to my regular journaling now!

Great start to the month!! And I'm sure with that plan you'll be down to 140 in no time!

So when you do your morning workouts - do you basically just jump out of bed and get at it? Do you eat anything before hand? I'm curious!

WOW those are quite the goals! 30 day shred plus P90X? and a C25K program? Don't rush the running program. Do it one week at a time and if a week feels too hard, then just repeat it. Otherwise you risk getting injured and we surely don't want that!

keep up the hard work!

Yeah - I just jump out of bed, throw on my workout gear, grab my water bottle, put the dvd in and do it. The few times I've actually made it to the gym in the mornings I've eaten a piece of fruit in the car on the way.

LOL - 30 Day Shred THEN P90X :-)

I did the C25K program last year to prep me for my first 5K last October but then this year I had surgery at the end of January and couldn't exercise for 6 weeks so by that time it was almost like starting all over again with my fitness so that's why I'm basically "restarting" everything I've done before lol

The 1st week of May is an eating blur. I didn't do too bad - even over the weekend - but I did only get in 2 workouts.

Thur - 5/5 I walked on the treadmill at Level 6 Random 3.9 mph for 35 min
Fri - 5/6 C25K Week 5 Day 1

5/1 - I was doing major unpacking because I had just moved in the previous day and the kids were due back with me that night at 6pm

5/2 - I was off from work - waiting for the cable guy & unpacking in the morning and then the kids afterschool was closed that day so I picked them up from school and afterwards we

Vanessa, like I said before that must have been disappointing to hear. BUT 2 packs of 100 cal cupcakes is still not the worst way to console yourself, and the rest of your day looked great!

Vanessa,
if you took off that long then you pretty much have to start over. about the longest you can break from running is 3 weeks without having to cut back to almost nothing. Its kind of hard, but i've done it before and its easier the second time around, but still don't 'jump ahead' on the program.

I can't believe 30 day shred then p90x. you are crazy. :P

You aren't lying! I re-started the program from Week 1 Day 1 and will keep on plugging along til I complete it. THEN I'll work on my speed. I'm slow as heck! lol

Thanks Miranda - it probably is good that I had them in the house rather than digging in to the kids' lunch treats which I've been know to do lol
