DAY 28, I'm back, as in back to life from yesterday!

Oh what a difference a day makes.  I was crawling yesterday, but today is a whole new day.  I was able to go back to sleep until 10 this morning, and that is amazing and I think what my body REALLY needed.  The timing of my body being over worked, the cleanse diet and my period was not a good combo yesterday.  So let's move on shall we?

Today I did cheat, again, and had an egg for breakfast.  Then kale juice then off to workout.  I was able to do 35 reps of legs, 40 of abs, and 40 of arms.  And I got in 30 minutes of cardio.  It all felt pretty good today.  My ankles and knees are ready for a break.  I have to do this on a basement floor with 2 layers of area rugs.  Its less than optimal and I am starting to feel it.  My legs and hip area is feeling much firmer and stronger.  I think my ab area will be the last to give, and that may take another month or two.  I should post a picture of how huge I was with my last pregnancy and you would understand.  My belly reached the other side of the room, it was crazy.  So getting things back in order I knew would be a challenge.  Its just encouraging to know that others actually have been able to get the skin to go back, so if that take more time, fine.

I want to be clear that I totally understand that I have cheated and made exceptions on this 30 day journey.  I did what I have felt capable of doing.  I have never dieted in my life, I was always naturally thin and ate what ever, when ever (although I am an overall healthy eater).  but it had been a while since I was really in any decent shape (like 6 years ago).  I totally fell off the wagon after kids.  For the first time ever I had a belly and back fat and more hips and more cellulite.  And baby 2 only made matters worse.  So for me to be as restricted as I have been and as dedicated to working out as I have been has been huge.  I would love to be done with the belly fat now, but again, knowing it can happen is good enough for me right now.  Like I said in an earlier post, I'm not going to the SAG awards tonight or any other night in my near future, so I have time.  I'm good.

I really appreciate all comments I have gotten, it really helps on the days when you just want to forget it and go to town on what ever is near by.  I hope that reading how I have done this month vs the by the bookers (Summer and Laura to be specific)  will give you a comparison.  To see yes, you will get results, but they may not be the end of the road towards your goal.  

Alright here's to 2 MORE FRICKING DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holy Crap!!!!
