I've been trying to get in shape lately, but it hasn't been going very well. For some reason between Boo REFUSING to stay in the day care at the gym I joined and me watching The Biggest Loser while eating more peanut butter cookies than there are contestants I mysteriously haven't lost much weight. My weight has always been hard to track as it can vary as much as 5-6 pounds just by weighing at different times of the day. I obviously never been 'together' enough to weigh at the same time every day. I joined a group of ladies that are all doing this same Extreme Makeover lead by Amber Filkins. Each week she posts a question for me to bore everyone with my answer to.
This week's question:
How are you keeping track of your achievements? How do you reward yourself when you achieve a goal?
This question gets me right from the start, as it insinuates that I should have some kind of achievements and have met a goal. Silly Amber! I have neither. I am happy with my weight, but I need some serious toning. Maybe once I achieve that my reward will be the fact that my mommy belly won't jiggle when I brush my teeth. On the upside I have mastered an angle in my bathroom mirror that makes my tummy look like defined abs! If only I could just stand there forever... since eventually I'll have to leave my bathroom I've purchased the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD. I am also planning on literally dusting off my Turbo Jam collection that I just HAD to have, so I guess I'll get the kids excited and we'll get shredded and jammed. I can't decide if that sounds dirty or painful...
