I'm beat

Thank you, Jillian Michaels, for kicking my butt. I am sore and can barely walk. I have now done two days of The 30 Day Shred. Go me! I am also watching my carb intake. I had very good results of doing a low carb diet several years ago. I weighed 198 when I started it, and got down to 147 in like 3 months. I kept that weight off for over a year... until I got pregnant with twins. And then I gained 26 lbs in like 10 weeks. Yikes! How is it possible to gain that much weight when you are constantly nauseous and throwing up?

Well, I digress. So now I am working on losing Alice weight. Though a lot of that is due to my Reese peanut butter cup and Peanut Butter M&M kick. I weighed myself yesterday, and I weighed 176.7. Good grief! You are probably thinking I am the size of a cow, since I am 5'3"... but I'm not. I have (or at least had) a lot of muscle mass, and I carry my weight very well. So most people would be shocked if I told them I weighed that much. I think I probably look like I weigh 150 or so. Wow...I can't believe I told the Internet how much I weigh.

The one thing that I like about working out is that Alice is right there watching. And she tries to work out too. It is adorable! For instance, when we were warming up and stretching our arms (swing out and across the body) she started doing the same thing. And when we do jumping jacks or jump rope, she tries to jump too. I love it! Oh, and pushups and situps are funny stuff!

So, do me a favor Internet... help me stay on track. I will update on how I'm doing, and if I haven't updated please feel free to bombard me with questions about if I'm still staying on track!

I have heard so much about this 30 day shred that I want to do it just so that I am not left out. (And then I remember that I like sitting around much better than exercise, so I change my mind.)
