30 Day Shred

Today is day 7 of the 30 day shred for me.  I have to tell you that I am seeing no difference what so ever yet.  Aside from a slight increase in endurance.  I am sure that this is because of how out of shape I truly am.  However, I am still motivated.  I want to be thin and fit.  I need to get into shape for my sake and the sake of the girls.  We are going to do measurements tonight and weight in the AM.  I will let you know if there is any difference in those, but I'm not sure that I have been doing it long enough for a difference there either. 

I have been working out for 7 days without wearing shoes and my bad knee is starting to feel it.  I have one pair of shoes that are were great.  I've had them for at least 3 years.  I have a very hard time picking out shoes.  I have only ever had good luck with Reeoks, but would be willing to try anything but Nikes.  I tear Nikes up like nobody's business.  If anyone has any good suggestions on good shoes, please let me know.  Also if anyone has any good ideas for helping to trim the calories here or there while still being toddler friendly, I would gladly accept the pointers.  My insurance is having a nutritionist call me due to my status as borderline diabetic. I am in denial that I have full blown diabetes.  So is my Dr.  I think that this is going to be great, but they said it could take up to a week for her to call me when I talked to the nurse on Friday.

We have yet to sit down and plan out the menu for our venture into Menu planning even though I keep "suggesting" that we need to.  If we don't talk about it by Tuesday, I am planning it myself which I hate to do.   If you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you will know that I am not a cook.  The huz does all of the cooking.  My cooking repertoire extends to baking a turkey, White Castle stuffing, Chili, and hot wing dip.  Not the best items, but at least I can do a few things.  Though, not enough to start doing a weekly meal plan. 

Also, today is Mouse's 2 month birthday.  It is so hard to believe that my Christmas baby turned thanksgiving baby is already 2 months old.  Of course, in 6 days I will be saying the same thing about my little monkey.  She will be 20 months.  Time flies when they are little and I am so blessed to be able to be a SAHM.
