Shred and WW

I FINALLY opened up my Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred DVD last night after reading a post from 4 Mars and 1 Venus- check out her blog!  She doesn't disapoint that's for sure!  This mama managed to lose 8 lbs in 12 days after doing Jillian's dvd!  How's that for motivation!?  (I'm not sure when this took place but it was in her top 5 posts of 2012).  I was so motivated!  I worked out last night AND this morning!  Not saying it was easy- oh no, not at all.  Infact, I felt like I was going to die...on level one.  Yes, we have a ways to go.  Getting up at 6am was dreadful.  My legs are already sore and the day isn't over yet.

Our recent trip to Mexico, I managed to gain a lot of weight in ONE week!  Yes, not 3, 4 or 5 lbs- MORE!  Yes, I'm not even kidding!  On my drive from the cities to my house, my pants were unbuttoned.  I couldn't even button them!  I've managed to lose 6 lbs since being home but STILL!  Seriously!  I guess chasing kids around does keep us mama's in line right?

I have registered with Weight Watchers online and am committed to losing weight.  I want to feel healthy again.

  • Eat healthier
  • Eat Breakfast other than just coffee
  • Drink more water
  • Work out at least 4 times a week
The reason I'm telling you all this?  Accountablity!  Who's tired of having 'lose weight' as a new year's resolution every sticken year?  Me! Me!  It's on my list every year so my resolution for this year is to take 'lose weight' off my list NEXT year!  Ha!

Starting Weight: 186
Goal Weight: 140

Since this is a journey- I'm starting in 5 lb goals.  I don't want to feel like 'oh gosh I have 46 lbs to lose!! Ekk!!'

I'd love to hear any tips or tricks from any of you! :)



  1. Good for you Kim. That's one of my goals too. I managed to gain several pounds this Christmas break, ugh!

  2. Good for you!! If you ever feel like going to meetings, my sister is a leader in Hibbing. She's awesome!! I started kettle bells this past week, and I can feel a difference already!

  3. Good job so far! Keep up the good work. :) My goal this year is to lose about 75 pounds... We can hold each other accountable. :)

  4. Way to go, Kim! You can do it! I've lost 30 lbs in the last year by getting up and working out first thing in the morning and eating much better. You can do it!
