 So, I'm nearly halfway through the 30 Day Shred. I'm not really feeling a difference, but I know it usually takes a while until your body starts to acknowledge the fact that you have decide you don't want to be a fat slob anymore. I have over 2 months to go until the dreaded wedding, but I'm concerned that won't be enough time to fit in my dress. I should probably start thinking about other options.

I'm also thinking about what to do when the 30 days are up. I can't really start again, unless I just want to do level 3 (or level 2 and level 3, since I hear level 3 is actually easier than level 2) every day for another month and a half. I might order another Jillian Michaels DVD. Maybe No More Trouble Zones and Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism. But maybe not. My fear is that I'm not going to be willing/able to do an hour a day instead of half an hour a day. I may get Shred It with Weights. I'll have to ask the mother if she wants to sponsor my weight loss, since she'll be the one paying for a new dress if I can't fit in mine. $40 or so for a few DVDs and a kettlebell seems like a steal compared to the cost of a dress fit for my sister's goddamn wedding. 

The other option is trying to start running again. I'd like to do this at some point, and I understand that once you have built up some muscle and lung capacity that running is easier. But I don't think I want to waste my half hour a day building up my running ability, at least not until after the wedding.

So much pain. I need better painkillers, I think. I'm stuck with Tylenol, which I hate. Must go get some Ibuprofen. 

It's all for a good cause, I know, but how long do I have to do this before my muscles remember that they are supposed to work and stop hurting?

So, my sister is getting married in 79 days. That's the day after Christmas for those who don't want to do the math. In NYC. Ugh. I hate that bitch.

Anyway, I have this gorgeous dress (my profile pic on Facebook) that was custom made for a friend's wedding. It was ridiculously expensive, but I didn't have to pay for it. And I love this dress. Problem is, it was made when I was at my skinniest post-Celiac diagnosis weight. I tried it on a couple of days ago and it doesn't fit anymore. I'm guessing that to be safe, I need to lose 20 lbs. So I am doing the 30 day shred. I have time to fit it in twice if I do it everyday. I'm on day 3 and I am in so much pain. I know it will get better as I continue to do it, but still. Kill me now. I can barely walk. Those goddamn, motherfucking lunges are what did it. My calves would like to just detach and leave, thank you very much.

So that's what I'm up to right now. Still waiting to hear about second interview for awesome job. The guy was out of town this week as well, so I was told I would hear by the end of this week, so hopefully today. They do still want to see me, so that's good. And I'm going to visit USC next week. And then there's still my Halloween costume to get. So much stuff to do.
