Getting Serious

I notice that when I don't keep up with this blog, I tend to gain weight. Last summer, I was in the 170s when I kept up with my blog. I slacked all school year and I'm 30+ pounds heavier and the heaviest I've ever been in my life. On the plus side, I don't look like I weigh 200 pounds, but that can also be a negative. I have embarked on a new plan. I'm doing the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, and today was day 1. She's a tough trainer and she'll have you sweating through this quick 20 minute workout. I felt ready to give up at some points during the workout, but I pressed on.
On a side note, I weighed myself last week and I was 205 pounds. That number scares me. I know I may have been bloated due to my cycle being here, so I plan on weighing myself this coming Tuesday. I still can't believe that I gained 30 pounds in a school year. I vow to never be in the 200s again in my life, and I will keep that promise because I don't like what I see when I look in the mirror.
