It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

So food? Bad. Shred? Ok. Current WI. Up 1.4 from the 3 lbs loss from last week. So I'm less than half a pound from 75 lost...yet again. Oh yes I do love that roller coaster. However I'm chalking 3/4 of the gain to bad eating, 1/4 to PMS and water retention doom. Oh well.

Today I skipped a second day of Shredding. I was busy aaaaaall day, finally got home at 9 pm after hours of shopping, and hubby and kidlet took over the telly to watch the hockey game. It's now 20 after 11 and there's no way I'm gonna try it y'all. I'm sorry, call me a failure, I don't give no fuck. I'm too tired and sore to push myself tonight.

Also, I'm bored. Like so very very bored with the Shred. I don't think that physically I should be moving up to level three tomorrow morning, but I think I just may have to, otherwise I'm going to give up on the Shred and move on to other things. Like the wicked awesome bootcamp that I've yet to try (that the totally wicked awesome Tammy sent me for Christmas--what a doll!!!). So yesterday I skipped the Shred as well, however, I replaced it with 45 minutes of bellydancing, and at least 40 minutes of some Carmen Electra cardio strip love. Funny enough both of these would have had me huffing and puffing and dripping sweat months ago, last night I just got a nice toasty warm feeling. They're not even close to the intensity of the Shred which makes me like the Shred even more because I know my body needs it...but now I'm going to be on the hunt for more Jillian vids and Biggest Loser type vids. As much as I love Miss Carmen...she just ain't doin me the way she used to.

Christmas shopping is nearly done. Of course we've already gone over budget, finances would give me a heart attack and make sure I didn't gain a pound as I'd be too scared to eat due to massive amounts of nausea, if I let it of course. This year the holidays have hit me harder than I can remember. I'm aching for my family back in the States. I love my hubby's family, but it's never the same, and they don't fill my soul the way my family does.

I'm looking forward to January! On the weekend of the fifteenth I'll be working a few hours for a couple days at the Edmonton Bike Show. I told hubby that if it were possible I'd work only shows and I'd love it, but there's an atmosphere at a show that could never ever compare to standing behind a till, and in order to work these shows as I know them I'd have to be standing behind that till fairly regularly. So nope. He was great though, he said if I wanted to travel all over Canada and the US and be a major rep for a bike he'd totally support me, but I can't do that either. I have a little boy, he needs his mum, and I need him. But it really did make me feel wonderful to hear that.

I don't know if I'll be posting again before Christmas, if I don't, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and an amazing New Year!

Sounds like you have your "gain" (this week) under control. At least you know what is going on and what you can do to improve. :)

I am not doing The Shred, but have been told by many to start doing it. I'm nervous because you are not the only person who has said it gets boring and that they have skipped days because of the increasing intensity of the levels. It's all about finding a workout that is right for you. Good luck in your search! :)

Oh, and just because your family is not physically with you, they are most definitely with you in spirit. :)

Happy holidays to you and your family!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, too.

Love that you have such wonderful support, but love even more you choose your son. =) That kind of thing just tugs at my heart.

I'm betting that gain is mostly water because you'd have to eat a heck of a lot of food to gain that much.

Hey girly! That's such a cool thing to realize- the dance video is too easy for your shredded ass! Yeahh! That means Jillian the fitness Nazi has done her job on us. :) I am also looking to get more Jillian DVDs. Must be a glutton for punishment here. Maybe Santa will get me one!

I missed that one day of shred, then tried level 3. Uh huh. There are some things on that one that I just can't do. No way...maybe one day, but not now!

Loves ya! TTYS!

I may try this shred biz out myself. It sure seems to be helping so many. It is cool that you and Tammy are helping each other stay straight as much as possible.

Sounds like you will crack thru that 75 very soon.

Christmas finances - I am afraid to look.

I always change my workouts to prevent boredom. Happy Holidays :).

Hope you and your wild crew have a kick-ass Christmas, too.

I never thought I'd say this but I'd love it if someone got me a bootcamp for Xmas.

BODA weight loss
