Kelley / 8 Years Ago

I am so glad that I lost .4 lbs this past week. It is mainly due to Jillian Michaels kicking my butt. She is a professional trainer from the Biggest Loser. ( I started watching that show this season. I enjoy it. I find it motivating and inspirational let alone being informative.)

I have felt in a rut regarding my exercise routine. I am certainly proud of my running, but I wanted some more guidance. I wanted a personal trainer. I went online and started reading reviews about Jillian Michaels workout videos. Someone strongly suggested that if you're thinking about a personal trainer, save the money and get this lady's videos. She is tough. It is so true. I am being pushed and it feels so good. What I really like is the idea of being able to do these workouts even after I start back to work.

Also when I was reading reviews online, I read where a lady was working out using ExerciseTV to use Jillian Michaels videos. I thought I would look into it. ExerciseTV offers tons of videos. I started looking into the 2 weeks to a New You program, but knew that I wanted to see what Jillian had to offer. She has a 30 slim down plan. I saved the plan on my computer and I am now on day 6. Yesterday's workout was the hardest.

I hoped for a bigger weight loss this past week, but I have to look at the whole picture. Once again, I did not keep track of all of my calories. I did not limit myself much. I believe that if I did keep track of my calories to the best of my ability and made sure to do at least a half an hour on the elliptical or treadmill then I would see better results. Plus, this program is only going to be more challenging on week 2. I am looking forward to the progress.

I can certainly tell that I am gaining muscle tone. It is a huge motivation. I printed out a picture of myself where I really like how I look. I taped that picture on the cabinet where DJ has all of his snacks. I certainly know that I have trigger foods. I am comforted that I am not just folding in the face of adversity, but instead I am fighting head on.

This will be a most excellent week. Let's live it to the full!

    Job Searching
    I talk about my current job situation a lot. It has not been a great experience. I have hope that there is something else out there that will be a better fit for me. It is scary to look at jobs nation-wide. I do not want to move for a job unless I know it is a match. I will continue at my current job and make the best of the situation as I continue to search.

    DJ's return is set
    We are so excited to share that DJ's ticket to return to the states is set. It now allows us to start really preparing for our move to Virginia. Kelley is trying to find a job. We will look for a house to rent. The hope is that we prepare as much as possible to make the transition the least stressful as possible. We are both super looking forward to a change. Things can be always be worse, but we're both ready to get out of our current living situation.
