Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred!

So I started this workout this week and have completed 3 days. I have to say this is pretty hardcore for a beginner! But very doable! It's 20 minutes a day and is a combination of cardio, strength & ab workouts. I'm very sore and have been after day 1.
I think this is what I needed to get out of my no weight loss slump! It's more difficult than doing a 5K. At least in my opinion. Maybe it's because I trained for the 5K  over 2 months before doing it. But this workout works me out more than just straight running.
Anyway, I just wanted to share what I'm doing now since my I finished 1 of the things on my news resolution list.

Ok, So it's been awhile since I've posted. I've definitely thought about it. Just been way too busy! Also I've decided to not check in weekly with my weight. It has been making me very depressed. I've been working hard training for my first 5K which I finished this past weekend, look below for pictures! I talked my husband into doing it with me. I jogged most of the time and took quite a few short walking breaks. It was REALLY cold, probably around 40 degrees. It took us 41 minutes to finish. I was really proud of the time it took us and that we took the initiative to do the 5K.  I have already scheduled us to the Color Me Rad 5K in May. Woo Hoo!
Regarding my weight. It hasn't been dropping like I wanted it to. I figured by now I would have dropped at least 10 lbs. I'm still right at the 5 lb mark. I've been stuck there since I started this journey. Anywho, Look for monthly updates. After 9 weeks I have a total of 5.2 lbs gone.
