Day 8 and 9.

Day 8: Tuesday, February 28
Workout: Phase 1, Workout 1

Day 9: Wednesday, February 29...Leap Day!
Workout: Phase 1, Workout 2

I'm combining these two days because the workouts are the same as last week. I don't need to talk about them too much. I just want to say I've decided definitively that Workout 2 is my fave! Even over Cardio. It has the perfect amount of impact. Not that it matters, I do them all and I do them to the best of my abilities. That's all that matters!

Okay, so it's been over a week. Time for an update!

Drum roll please....I lost THREE POUNDS in the first week! This is amazing to me. I had a couple bad eating days and still lost. I'm having a great eating week this week so I'm really hoping to lose 3 or 4 more. It's totally do-able with this workout/eating plan. By the end of March, I'd like to be down 15 pounds total. It'd put me right about at where I was when I got pregnant with Rory. Boy that would feel good! I want to be completely done with my weight loss goals by July 4. I know that is far away,  but I'm not crazy. I know after the first few weeks my losses will slow down. I want to give myself achievable, realistic goals so I don't get discouraged.

I'm having lots and lots of pain in my left sciatic nerve and my right soasz muscle. I'm not sure how I injured myself, but yes. I'm injured. Today is cardio day so I think I should be okay. My pain is strongest during squats and goodness knows Jillian LOVES TO MAKE ME DO SQUATS. I'm not sure what's going on. I'll give myself a good ballet barre session tonight, hopefully that will help the tension ease up. My stupid sciatic nerve is hurting so bad, I couldn't fall asleep last night.

Whatever. Nothing's going to stop  me!

 9 days down, 81 to go! (Wow, almost to the 70's!)
