Random thoughts of an upbeat mind

RIT – Day 1

One day down … only 19 more to go.

So, I thought I was on board with the early morning workout.  I set my alarm earlier.  I went to bed “relatively” early.  But when morning came my mind and body went back and forth with No eventually winning. 😦

Then I stepped on the scale.  The number increased. 😦

This was to be expected as I ate badly this week-end and drank alcohol (empty calories).  There was no exercise and minimal water.  I had my first Ruben sandwich ever.  So good.  But not so nice in the calorie department.  Couple that with some fish and chips that was 1160 calories … just spells disaster.

So this evening I came home prepared to do the work.

It was brutal.  I forgot how challenging Ripped in Thirty actually is.  I’m not sure I will be able to brush my hair tomorrow morning, but I am reaping the rewards tonight.

Extra calories burned = a serving of Cheetos twists. 🙂

We shall see what tomorrow brings.  I am hoping that Yes wins in the morning.  Then I can come home after work and do nothing.

Maybe I’ll sleep in my workout clothes tonight.  LOL You think that will help?

  1. What’s ripped in thirty…I’ve never heard of it? I see its a Gillian Michaels thing…is it a book? Video? Program you pay for?

    • It is a video. Jillian has a 3-2-1 system which is 3 minutes of strength training, 2 minutes of cardio and 1 minute of abs work. Repeat 3 times. Couple that with a warm up and a cool down and you are done in about 35 minutes. 🙂 Can’t go wrong.

  2. […] I am down 3.6 pounds from last Monday!!  I undid the damage I did last weekend!! […]
