just Frustrated

I really WANT to make a change- however, I don't know what it is- I don't know if it's just tiredness, laziness, or what that just can't muster up the motivation to do so!  I'll start again tomorrow and see what I can do. Any advice anyone?

Just trying to get motivated.  I had a really busy week last week and of course that led to not having a chance to exercise.  I really need to get back in that but I am struggling with that.  However, I am going to post a quote that a friend of mine posted in a thread on SCS.  It's really good!  Let me know what you think:

"Don't wait until everything is just right.  It will never be perfect.  There will always be challenges, obstacles, and less than perfect conditions.  So what. Get started NOW.  With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident, and more and more successful."

Mark Victor Hansen

Just some things to think about!

Still hanging around and still doing okay

The weight is going down- slowly but surely.  Not as quickly as I would like but I know of two more things that would get it down faster.  To add more cardio into my exercise- right now it's just the 30 Day Shred or get to the gym.  However, due to my schedule the first is more likely to happen- at least until the first of the year.  I know this is my healthy living blog but I wanted to show my goal cards that I made and are hanging on my fridge right now.  If you want to see details you can go find them at my other blog The Journey of Life.

Oh my goodness- just giving a review of the Jillian Michaels The 30 Day Shred dvd workout!

I borrowed this from a friend (and ordered my own copy this afternoon) because I did level 1 last night.  I worked harder then I have in a LONG time (and I did a hard step class on Tuesday also). I highly recommend this workout because she's encouraging you through it and has modifications for those who need modifications.  Obviously I thought highly of it since I ordered it :)

Let me know your thoughts on this!

Elliptical and strength training

I really need to go to the gym or use my Biggest Loser DVD's but instead I chose to use my elliptical and some five lb. weights.  I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and 10 min. (several reps) of various exercises using the weights.  I'm going to check out Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred.  I really need to kick it into gear.  Have a GREAT day!

Still Around- I promise!

I'm still here- have been exercising and trying to watch what I eat- unfortunately the pounds are not going down as quickly as I want them to.  Oh well, it will come- I need to kick it up a notch!

I did fix a yummy lunch today based on a dinner I had at church on Wednesday.  I made it a little more SB friendly.

Pizza Pasta
Whole Wheat pasta
1 jar of pizza sauce
1/2 jar of spaghetti sauce (thought it was more pizza sauce but found out it was spaghetti sauce)
1/2 block of Mozzarella cheese
1 serving (about 20 pieces) of turkey pepperoni

Make pasta and then pour cooked pasta and all other ingredients mixing them together.  Put cheese all over the top (you can mix it up but I didn't).  Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes until cheese is melted and it's warmed through.
