yesterday i got some new workout t shirts and shorts. that's how you know i'm serious about this losing weight thing - i'm willing to invest money into the attire. :) i was trying to get mikey to do punches with me in a staged setting, but he kept looking at the tv like, "but mom, that's not what the girls are doing yet..." tomorrow is halfway through the shred for me... i don't think i've lost any weight yet, but i know i'm losing inches, so i'm satisfied. i'm also satisfied because this is hard, especially when i turn around and go get on the treadmill to do a couch to 5k training & i've never followed through before. i'd wimp out, miss days, give up. not this time, i'm changing my body! and i'm oddly loving it.
