A Jillian Michaels DVD Weekend

I have felt like I am struggling the past few weeks.  With Halloween and other events going on at work, there have been more treats and it is so hard to pass up a treat.  I have a bad habit of checking the scale everyday and lately the scale has been up, but my clothes still feel ok. 

Friday afternoon I hit the gym and ran 3.3 miles on the treadmill.  My plan was to hit the gym this weekend too, but Mother Nature had some influence on that.  Saturday morning the roads were pure ice due to rain the night before.  I was psyched to go to the gym, but I decided a DVD would be a better option.  I put this baby in the DVD player:
I starts with a warm-up, seven 6 minute circuits, and a cool-down.  Usually when I do this, do 3 or 4 of the circuits.  Today I did all 7!  Even though I hate a couple of them!  I didn't feel very winded like I did when I have done this in the past and I only stopped a few times.  I have very sweaty and very proud of myself when I finished.

Today I decided to do another DVD:

 I did level 2 today, as I did level 1 a couple days ago.  I have done this DVD before and level 2 is always more of a challenge than level 1.  It has more plank exercises.  The walking push-ups are a killer and one of the ab moves feels like it puts lots of pressure on my back.  Again, very sweaty when I finished.

Saturday morning I made a pot of zero point soup in the crock pot.  Something I like to do when I feel the need to get back on track.
