True Confessions (First Time)

So this is my first time confessing anything on True Confessions Tuesday! I confess that I lost my motivation to exercise last week and it stunk. I was doing the 30 day shred with the sisterhood and I had missed 7 days but was on day 5 of level 2 so I was half way done but I had a few days of not being able to fit it in like usual and then my hubbie and kids weren't doing it with me and I have to admit I was kind of sick of it. It is a great workout and I was seeing results & I want to finish the other 15 days but I stopped. So on Sunday we worked out with the wii and it had been 6 days without real exercise. Yesterday I gave myself permission to do something instead of the shred and I did 30 minutes of step aerobics with my new riser for the balance board. I felt it and could tell I hadn't done it in awhile. Then I did it again today. So I think I found my motivation again.
I also have to confess that I have been a total crab for about the last week. It is TOM so that was part of it but then my sister had her second little girl last Wednesday and she swallowed amniotic fluid on her way out and by Thursday she was in the NICU and is still there. She is doing much better and should be home by this Thursday or Friday but they will have to be very careful for awhile because she is going to be able to get sick from others quite easily. So that was stressing me out big time. But thankfully she is much better and all is good so I am not so cranky anymore.
My last confession is that I don't like the team challenge as much as I thought I would. I don't want to hurt anybody, etc but my team doesn't have the friendship and encouragement thing going like some of the other teams. I don't mind about the actual pounds lost but I am a little jealous of how well some of the other teams are motivating each other. So I guess my truly last confession is that I have been reading some of the other teams posts so I know what is going on with everyone still. =) Thanks for listening.

Spring Fling Week #2

I don't have a lot of time today but I am down 1.5 pounds. I am at 190. I have been here recently and went back up but with doing the 30 day shred now I don't think I will have a problem losing. That is one hard workout. I have done all 3 days so far and it is a great workout. I am sore but it feels good. My husband has done it so far too. He is also very sore. I also did the tworkout last night too. I started late as my boys had wrestling practice so I got most of it in but not all. I have been drinking more water this week and making pretty good food choices. My son turned 3 on Monday so we have had birthday cake once and will have another party on Saturday. Plus an uncle made homemade ice cream for the first party. I had a small amount of each but I still had it. Well I am off to play trains with Zander, he has some new trains he has to play with now. =)
