I haven't post a Fitness Friday in a while because it was a little depressing to do. I've fallen off the fitness and nutrition bandwagon a bit. Today is as good a day as any to start taking control again. I am vowing to exercise everyday in the month of December. I plan on doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred a lot. I can't manage to do it every day but I plan on 3-4 times a week. I will also try to jog, do other Jillian Michael's DVDs, and a low impact activity on my resting day.
The 30 Minute Shred is great to do by itself on days when I am short on time. Yesterday I would usually have skipped a workout between volunteering at Caitlin's school and work but I forced myself to do the Shred after the kids went to bed. I felt great about doing that although Jillian kicked my butt during the Shred.
I am also going to try to control my diet again. I spent 2 weeks trying a gluten free diet to see if it would help with my Hashimoto's. It didn't seem to make much of a difference or at least not enough to continue to eat gluten free. Although this is a super hard time of the year to lose weight I'm going to give it a shot. I plan on tracking my calories and eating a healthy well balanced diet. More salad and less cookies is my new motto. Wish me luck.
