30 Day Shred Day 12 Level 2!

Todays workout was pretty great!!!

I am really happy with how it is still such a hard workout to do! I started level 2 of (Jillian Michaels-30 Day Shred) yesterday and it is awesome!

I had started to burn out just a little bit on level 1. Don't get me wrong. It was still kicking my butt, but my body was asking for a change! Once I hit level 2 it was EXACTLY what I needed! I am getting a bit of a case of shin splints from one of the cardio segments, but I am ok with it.

I am feeling such a sense of accomplishment from working out each day!


My eating had also taken a HUGE turn and I have cut ALL sugar for the next week. I am also staying away from processed/bleached flour and mayonaise. No white bread or mayo for me! I tend to REALLY crave white bread and mayo with all sorts of sandwich goodness when I am trying to eat well.


Mayonaise is a weakness for me.

Deviled Eggs, Egg Salad, Holindaise, Potato Salad, etc.


*wipes droll from mouth*

Sorry. I was having a moment there.


Anyway, I am trying to stay focused on my health. I am also trying to learn about what will help my body function the most efficiently. I'll probably check some books out or something.

I have learned that I can take in a TON of calories not just with the coffee or hot chocolate or sodas I drink, but ALSO with milk and juice. SO yeah, my tip is.... Watch your calories in your beverages. Don't drink all your calories away. :)

Ok. I gotta get ready for church. Having Chik Fil A for lunch. Thinking a nice wrap is in order. :) Grilled chicken of course. Minimal dressing. :)


  1. I love level 2, the plank work is really intense and I love feeling the burn. That level really gets the sweat pouring off!

    Thank you for inspiring me, I blew the dust off of my 30 Day Shred dvd and worked out yesterday. Felt great! I also added No More Trouble Zones into the mix, so my body is feeling it today. Once you have completed the 30 Day Shred program, you really should consider is hard, but in a good way.

    Keep up the awesome work and again, thanks for the motivation!

  2. Awesome! keep it up! You are worth it!

Fun weekends!

Last weekend our church went on a trip and experienced some pretty stellar sights! We traveled to Kentucky for the 2nd time to visit the Creation Museum
It is just so amazing!! 

When we visited in May of 2014 my girls were so much smaller!  (Elena on the left was almost 7)
(Here is Allee with my father in law. She was about 1 and 1/2 yrs old)
Here we are in 2004
Here we are this weekend!
They also hadn't started construction on their new exhibit The Ark Encounter. It opened last year and we finally got to see it! WOWZA! It was incredible!
The BEST part was that my father in law always flies up to WV to be with us on these trips! Here are a few pictures of our trip! I posted a ton of Snaps too. Too bad they don't last longer than 24 hours. 
We took 38 people from our church!
I was in the fun bus. These were the most active and excited little girls. 
Allee stayed with her grandpa the WHOLE trip. They were two peas in a pod.

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her

I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

Week 11 Day 1

This morning I woke up after having Allee keep me up for almost 2 hours during the night. Needless to say I was completely exhausted this morning.

I lacked motivation to get to the gym. Instead of leaving with my gym clothes on to take Elena to school I just drove her in my PJs. Yep. Was totally too lazy to even get dressed.

I finally did come back home and got dressed, but honestly, what was I thinking?! Allee was awake which meant I didn't leave until 9:00 a.m.

Its ok, I wound up having a great workout anyway. My video from after it is below.
