I wasnt sure (Jennifer)

I wasnt sure I would get anyone to join me in Syl's challenge for Jillian's 30 Day Shred.  But to my surprise lots of you were interested.  Teresa sent me a picture message of the DVD in her cart at Walmart.  I got mine today for like $8 and change there too!  Totally worth a shot in my opinion.  For those of you who left a comment on yesterday's post I left you each another comment on there today.  If you want to sign up officially for her challenge click on the link above and do so.  If you just want to do it for a good time then that is great too!!  The ladies at my gym swear that this type of weight exercise is what really makes the difference.  I really do think that each of us should take a picture the day we start and then at the end...even if we dont share it.  I will probably share mine because that is what I do  :) 

Yesterday I sprayed myself all up with hardcore bug spray (we live near a swamp) and went for a 4 mile run.  It started to rain along my way and I didnt even mind. Other than worrying about my Ipod getting wet I kind of even enjoyed it!  I am going to try to get in one more longer run (4 -5 miles is a long run for me at this point) tomorrow and then maybe just a short 1 mile run on Thursday or Friday morning before my first 5K on Saturday.  I am pretty excited about it!  The girls each had a quick sore throat and fever that lasted a day or so and now the hubs is saying his throat hurts.  So...I am praying I dont get sick for my "race" that I am now so excited for.

Here is a pic of today's lunch.  I dont usually post pics of my meals but this was so good and worth the calories I felt I must share it.  It is one of those Flat Out wraps that I usually dont care for with a sandwich but I really like it like this.  Anyway, it is a wrap (100 cals), 17 slices of turkey pepperoni (70 cals), and 2 oz of part skim mozzerella cheese (140 cals) for a total of 310 calories.  I wrapped it and put it in the oven for 20 minutes and it gets crispy on the outside and gooey and cheesy on the inside :) I probably should have taken the pic before I bit into it...but it wasnt until I tried it and enjoyed it so immensely that I figured I should share the pic.  Very satisfying.

I hope you are all having a good week.

Ha Ha ha! you girls will love me at the end of it- had to laugh at the comments that said "she threw me in" - I'm really a nice person ;-)

Hi- I just started reading your blog, and jumped over to Syl's to join the challenge. I did the Shred in March and enjoyed (hmmm..not sure if that's the right word) it. I was needing motivation to get back to shredding and yall gave it to me! Thanks!

Jennifer, what DVD did you get? I couldn't find details of the challenge, unless I'm just clueless - which is entirely possible.

I love these kind of wraps! yum!

Jillian scares me. I haven't really been exercising which is bad, I need to start. Not sure if Jillian is the way to start. Like I said, she scares me!
