May 1

Day one of my month-long habit building challenge. Started the day doing the 30 Day Shred w/ManDork. Muscles feel like jelly now. I added two bracelets to my bracelet habit system, a white one to represent my daily session with Jillian Michaels, and a purple one to represent that I’ve taken my vitamins {as well as having given Lucy her vit D}. I’m really proud of myself for doing the Shred even though I’m fighting off a cold. It’s been hard to motivate myself to care about fitness and healthy eating lately. But, despite having my ass kicked by that workout, I feel really good. I feel good about myself for having done it. I feel confident that I can ditch all this baby weight. And I feel more awake.
