Time for Working Out

I'm started a workout program, again, and I am really excited for it! I want to look amazing for our upcoming cruise in about a month!! Jon bought me a program called 'Slim in 6'. 6 meaning 6 weeks. It works around slimming your body rather than just building muscle, I really like that! So far so good, I got it about 2 weeks ago and we have 4 weeks til the cruise. I've been working hard but, so far, I'm struggling to see results. The hardest part about working out is waiting for the results. Yuck. But I am trying as hard as I can! I decided to blog about it to try to motivate me. If I tell people that I'm doing it then I have people to answer to when I quit, if I don't tell anyone then no one knows that I'm a loser and a quitter. So, hopefully, I'll be encouraged to see it through to the end!! I currently weigh 129.2 pounds. My ultimate goal is to weigh 119 pounds, but my immediate goal is to weigh 127. I've been weighing myself every morning and for pretty much the whole summer my weight has varied between 131 and 128. I really want to just get down to 127, it'll be a start at least. I'm working super hard to get awesome abs for the cruise. My waist line, which I measured today, is 35 inches. I don't know what the average is... but I definitely want it to go down. Now, I'm not trying to say that I'm overweight or fat. The last thing I want is for people to roll their eyes at me. "Shalay, you're so skinny, what are you whining about?" Jon and I swore that when we got married that we wouldn't gain weight, why is that so hard? I don't get it, but sure enough, we have, and I just want to stop it before it gets out of hand and ends up being harder to lose. Also, I'll be posting my daily weight on the side of my blog for the world to see!! I really need the encouragement! Thanks for listening!! Wish me luck!


  1. Wow, good for you! I'm not that brave. :) I wish you luck, though, and hope you FEEL amazing for the cruise!

  2. We should keep each other motivated. I am trying to loose weight myself and so pablo and I got a gym pass. We have both gained so much weight since we got married. I hate how that happens.
