It's party time.
I went to the doctor yesterday about the freckle thing on my back that I thought for sure was slowing killing me and they said there was nothing to worry about. It wasn't suspicious at all.
*Deep cleansing breath*
In other news, I'm about to jump on the Gillian Michaels bandwagon with her video The 30 Day Shred. I've heard such glowing reviews from my friends who have tried it such as:
"I can't feel my legs."
"Gillian Michaels is Satan reincarnate."
And my personal favorite:
"If I had a Gillian Michaels voodoo doll, I'd drop a free weight on it's head."
I ordered the DVD and it's been siting on my kitchen counter being the elephant in the room since oh, last week or maybe 2 weeks ago. It takes me some time to work into these things. Stop judging me. I mean, I've read the back cover about 60 times at least...that's good for something I'm sure.
I've also been using a online program: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/
It's all free and it's wonderful. I've been using it for 20 days straight. the basis of it is that you log all your calories that you eat during the day in their FREE food diary. Signing up is quick and simple. During the sign up portion is when you figure how many calories you need to be eating to lose the recommended 1 pound a week. There are also options to gain weight and even stay at your current weight through maintenance. They also have community boards where you can ask questions or read about others fitness journeys.
No, they aren't paying me to say all of this but if someone from there happens to read this...*eyebrow raise*...then we can work something out I'm sure.
I've also started thinking about the St. Patrick's Day 5K that is held in Ann Arbor each year. I haven't run in 2 months but what better way to get back into it than a run that ends with a free beer? Seriously. That's just pure genius on their part.
