ChaLean Extreme - Week 11 - Saturday

I hated every minute of Fat Burn Challenge today. I don't know why. I wasn't in the right frame of mind for exercise. I did do the Recharge video after, but my heart wasn't really in it. I'm so glad there is only a week left. I desperately need a change.

Speaking of change, I'm not sure how my next "challenge" is going to work out. I am 100% sure I'm doing 30 Day Shred 3 times a week. At first, I was going to fill in the other days with Biggest Loser workouts, but I also wanted to do some of Jillian's other stuff, so then I was going to make it all Jillian. Then I figured, since I have the time, I can do all of it without over training - just stick with Jillian's longer cardio 3 times a week, then follow up on Shred days with one of the shorter Biggest Loser workouts. But now, I really want to make sure I get some good strength training in, so I was thinking of Turbulence Training on the days I don't Shred. But then when do I do Jillian's other stuff? It's too much to put at the end of Shred. So now I don't know how to schedule it. I know I have the rest of my life to do it all.

7:30 AM - Total cereal w/ skim milk

8:40 AM - banana

10:50 AM - coffee w/ half-and-half & Splenda, turkey bacon, scrambled eggs w/ onion, green pepper & picante sauce

1:40 PM - small chocolate egg, barely bite sized; I stole it out of my son's Easter basket, but didn't log it. It was really sweet! I didn't crave more but I know I sure could have eaten more! A year ago, I would have.

2:15 PM - chicken breast & broccoli w/ light Italian dressing

4:05 PM - cauliflower

7:30 PM - chicken breast & vegetable risotto

9:00 PM - apple w/ peanut butter

I'm of no help with the workout stuff. I'm shooting for 2 days of
The Shred and anything above and beyond that will be icing on the cake.

I'm so proud of you for just limiting yourself to one piece of chocolate! I am looking forward to the day when I can do that too. :)

I thought I had a schedule worked out last night, Shredding 2 days a week, but then my New York schedule changed again, so I don't know what the hell to do. What started out as just a 10 week challenge is now up to 17, and that's just TOOOOOOO long!

Oh, wow! Yeah...good luck getting that figured out.

Hmmm...I wish I could help you out with your workout schedule, but since I don't really know what each workout entails it's kind of hard to give advice. I have to sy though - I keep hearing so much about Jillian's Shred workout that I'm thinking I'm going to have to try it. I'm excited to see how you like it! Hey, it's Jillian Michaels - I'd be happy just to bring her into my living room 3 days a week...LOL. She's awesome!!

Hayley - I figured it would and am going to post an overview tonight.
