Progress Report - below average...

Ok so my challenge last week was to workout 4 days and continue squats. 

Progress Report is that I worked out 2.5 ish times. 

My .5 = the night I attempted to do Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred. UGHHH I almost died TEN minutes into it. FAIL. I think almost dying gets a .5ish. 
Went to the gym last Tuesday and did 45 minutes of cardio.
Walked Lake Hollingsworth for just over 3 miles on Friday morning at 6 AM - a solid hour of speed walking.

Squats - I did twice. I was so SORE after Friday morning's walk it was unreal. I've come to the conclusion that I need to get fitted for shoes because I have "running" shoes and I'm not a runner and they suck for me. 

Did I meet my goals - NO.
Did I do more than I did the week before - YES.
Am I setting goals for this week - NO.
Does that suck - YES.

Weekend was JAM PACKED and pretty awesome.

Birthday dinner for JM's Mom on Friday night. Only after an ice cold beer the MINUTE I walked in the door on Friday night. MUCH needed and well deserved since I didn't have any DRANKS during the week. 

Saturday went to the Savvy Shopper's Market which is a toned down version of the Fancy Flea from a couple of months ago. Cute stuff but super small. Afterward we went to Brandon where we partook in the Cheesecake Factory - I looked up every cheesecake in MFP and didn't find ANY good news. I shared a piece of Banana Cream 3 ways, so it could have been worse. 

Did some shopping, spent an obnoxious amount of time at Ethan Allen and then went to see The Big Wedding. 

Got this super cute welcome mat - #winning

Sunday I watched JM's soccer game and then we partook in some Cinco de Mayo festivities and went to bed early. 

Oh and did I mention that right as I was supposed to be getting help at work because it's been so intensely crazy and I can't keep up - my full time customer service gal decided to take another position where she can work from home. Blessing in disguise, probably but still - hiring and training and starting from scratch does NOT have me excited AT ALL. Still in the denial stage. 


  1. "It's better to have tried and failed than to have not tried at all." So even though you didn't meet your goals, the important thing is that you put effort into it! That cheesecake all looks so good though!

  2. I love the welcome mat.

    You did something and that's something.

    Are you doing the squat challenge?
