This is a 20-minute workout, there's no stopping.

So what have I been doing lately? Usually one of the following:

  • Doing my job.
  • Watching playoff hockey.
  • Sweating my ass off at the gym or in my living room doing 30 Day Shred.

My sister's wedding is now less than two months away, and I have a bridesmaid dress hanging in my closet waiting to be taken in--it's just a matter of how much it needs to be taken in. I'm hoping for several inches, and I'm well on my way. I've lost 10.5 pounds so far this year and 17.5 pounds since my highest weight ever one year ago, and I'm back into some jeans that haven't fit since 2009. I have a long, long way to go to reach my goal (the weight I was at when I met Jason in 2005), but I know what I have to do to get there, and I am getting there, one Jillian Michaels walking pushup at a time.

Something that might complicate matters is my mom's visit starting next week. I have a slew of tasty foods that I want to feed ma maman, and they're not necessarily diet-friendly. We'll just have to go for lots of walks, and maybe I can even talk her into shredding with me.

I mentioned last week that I saw Wicked, and I also scheduled another one of the things on my 2011 to do list: an NKOTBSB concert! Yes indeed, I'm dragging Jason to our THIRD New Kids concert.

This might just be our best summer ever.

Congratulations on losing weight! And great job!

Also, good luck taking in that Bridesmaid's dress.

It takes no effort to gain weight, but takes monumental effort to lose it, so kudos!

Your title cracked me up! I knew exactly what you were talking about before even reading your post ;)

Congrats on the amazing weight loss success! That's a fantastic accomplishment. I hope you enjoy your time with your mom!

Good for you on the weight loss! I desperately need to get my ass in shape. Ugh.

NKOTBSB will be the best concert of ALL TIME. So excited for you! (And me. I'm going too!)
