Moving & Losing...30 Day Check In

Well it has been 30 days since I wrote this post and I figured it would be a good time to do a little check in.  I committed to tracking all of my points while on Weight Watchers and to working out everyday for the first 7 days and then 6 days a week thereafter.  I can proudly say that I was able to do that and in the process lost 10 pounds!  I still have 20 pounds to loss to be where I would like to be but that it something I know I can do and will just need to keep pushing myself to achieve.

In addition to following the principles of Weight Watchers,  I worked out to Jillian Michael's 30 day shred for the first 30 days doing it almost every single day in addition to running on my treadmill.  This next 30 days I have decided to change things up just a little bit and will be working out 6 days a week, alternating between working out to Jillian's Banish Fat Boost Metabolism workout which you can find on YouTube and running 30 to 45 minutes each day.  Three of each workout each week should be a good step in the right direction and help get me into a much needed routine of working out consistently which has been a major problem in the past.

In addition to the amped up workouts, I will also be working on making better choices when we are dining out and late at night.  Although I would say I have been doing a pretty good job recently, my major downfall is alcohol.  I'm not really a sweets person and have always preferred to drink my calories...that kinda sounds bad but it's the truth.  I would much rather have a couple of glasses of wine than a cupcake.  Hopefully I can find some super low calorie "adult beverages"  that help me on my path to weight loss while helping me keep san with two little ones ;)   If you have any suggestions for low calorie options please let me know!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
