52 Mondays came to me in a fit of New years resolution fury. It seems I am always starting my "diet" or exercise plan on "Monday"! Well lots of "Mondays" have come and gone and my butt and thighs are still as thick as a Chick-filet shake (you know what I'm talking about!!) That is when I thought OK there are 52 Mondays in year...52 is a doable number of making small changing in my life that will hopefully change to number on the scale in a downward fashion. Come join us on the journey of 52 Mondays to getting our butt, thighs and almost everything else that shake and moves a little smaller. If want to be a contributor (and you know you do) just leave a comment and I will add you to the list of contributors! This is a blog were we can share our successes and failures on the hard journey of weight loss and just plain physical wellness.

No more denial much more sacrifice

This week I lost one pound and only exercised twice. Over the weekend I hurt my arm, so I have been taking it easy. Eli was going to start p90x this week, but he injured his hand and caught a cold and was unable to start. I might try to do some of the workouts (They are not meant for beginners or those who are pathetically out of shape like me). I might only be able to do portions of the workouts, but I need a change from my usual pilates videos. Eli plans on doing the p90x diet as well which will take a lot of sacrifice on his part. He has vowed to follow the diet exactly including giving up coke for skim milk and eating arugula which is disgusting to him. I think I need to sacrifice a bit more of the things I love in order to get the results I want. So far, I have been taking it easy and not sacrificing enough and that is why I am down only 2lbs in an entire month. This week I realized I am still in denial about my weight. I went to get some new clothes and seeing myself in the full length mirror was a definite eye opener. February is a tough month with the superbowl, valentines day and I also have two of my kids birthdays this month. I have got to stop making concessions for things that come up because there are always too many good reasons to cheat.

  1. P90X is a kick butt work out. I've done the first three workouts. But haven't gotten past that. I figure I need to loose some weight and get into better shape before I try it again. But I am glad Eli is doing it. I have a friend who has done it, and she looks awesome!! After 4 kids too! So good luck I can't wait to hear your progress with it!!
