Jillian, Jillian, Jillian...

Yep. Jillian Michaels. Right now, I am so tired! And now I totally understand why so many contestants on the Biggest Loser throw up during their workouts. I TOTALLY just thought I was gonna vomit! I got the two new Biggest Loser DVD's... Last Chance Workout and 30-day Jump Start. The Day 1 of the jump start was only 10 minutes, so I decided to do the Last Chance Workout about an hour or so after dinner. It has a warm up, then about 30 minutes of intervals, then a cool down. IT was HARD!!! Not unrealistically-hard-for-a-fat-person like some of her other stuff, but VERY CHALLENGING. I definitely just got a good at-home workout. I may not be able to move my arms or sit on the toilet tomorrow...

Today I have been 100% on my plan! Protein shake for breakfast, salad w/tuna for lunch, baked chicken, asparagus, and sweet potato fries for dinner. I even logged everything on livestrong.com! I estimated that I ate about 1500 calories, and when I logged my exercise under Circuit Training - general, minimal rest, it said I burned about 500 calories. I don't really care about what I burned at this point, I am just happy that I got moving! That was my big goal for today. My other goal was to eat well and journal, and I did that too! I think I can officially say today was successful!

I have already packed my lunch and supplements for tomorrow, so there should be no reason to slip into bad habits tomorrow. I was pleasantly surprised that my oldest daughter also asked me to make her a salad for lunch. I was more than happy to! One of the main reasons I want to live a healthy lifestyle is for my children. My oldest is overweight, and I have found that when I lose eat right and lose weight, so does she. She is 12, so hopefully I haven't waited to long to show her good eating habits that are consistent.

I am off to take a shower and then I have a feeling I am gonna crash tonight! Exercise always puts me right to sleep!
