What is that you said, Jillian?

Huh? I can't hear you... I have my Ipod on and I am NOT listening!

What a difference great music makes when you work out!!! Last night, I had a great dinner with my besties. And even though I got home late, I immediately did my Day 3 workout before I could talk myself out of it. At the last minute, I got an idea... I put the TV on mute and put on my Ipod. Genius!!! The workout, although still very challenging, was SO MUCH BETTER! I guess the music made my mood better, so the workout passed by pretty fast. This DVD rotates workouts daily, so yesterday's workout was the one I did Monday. I was actually able to tune out Jillian and concentrate more on the moves, even the floor moves that were nearly impossible on Monday. I am still so sore, but in a good way.

Yesterday was about 90% on plan. I nibbled on a small piece of streusel when I was stuck in the teacher's lounge with a student. But I journaled it. I also tried not to have coffee yesterday, but after the stress with a student I had a headache and gave in. Yesterday my calories were around 1600, and I estimate I burned about 500 with the workout. Can't wait until I can get a heart rate monitor so I know for sure how many calories I am burning. I also downed about 130 oz. of water.

Ok... off to work. Just sipped a protein smoothie for breakfast, and my spring mix/baby spinach salad is already packed and ready to go!


  1. Great idea for tuning out everyone's favorite drill sergeant!! I'm going to try that next time.

    Good job staying with your plan - even when the stresses of the day were kicking in. It can only make you stronger.

  2. That is a great idea to tune out Jillian. My ipod was dead the other day and my cardio seemed so much harder!! Music makes a huge difference.

  3. I'm going to have to use my ipod...Jillian kills me! lol

  4. Go girl! I am proud of you! I thought I was the only one that drank a gallon and something of water a day. It's great to know I'm not. Also..I would recommend a polar heart rate mine!!!
