Shrink into Summer

No good news this week. I am up 2 pounds. I am not sure how because I have started the "30 Day Shred" program by Jillian Michaels and it's a killer. Hopefully, the weight gain is muscle mass. I haven't lifted weights in quiet a while and that's what the 30 Day Shred is all about! There is some cardio and ab workout in Level 1 but not really enough for me. However, I will try to stick to the 30 day workout in hopes that I am gaining lean muscle mass.

Here is what I did this week:

Thursday: OFF
Friday: 30 min. on elliptical with 5lb dumbbells.
Saturday: 45 min. Pilates workout
Sunday: OFF
Monday: Day 1 of the 30 Day Shred
Tuesday: Day 2 of the 30 Day Shred and 20 min. on the elliptical.
Wednesday: Day 3 of the 30 Day Shred and 20 min. on the elliptical.

And of course I have to give you all a baby update:

Our little man is now couch walking, wall walking, and taking chances by turning to grab onto another object to walk. He tries to stand when he crawls but it usual turns into a bear crawl. He said MOM very clearly three times on Mother's Day, how appropriate was that? And he tries to call for the dogs!!! He absolutely loves playing in the tunnel we have for him and loves his wagons. He is eating more solid foods these days and has thrown less food at me!!!! He is definitely going through the separation anxiety stage. When I drop him off at daycare or leave him with dad in the morning to take my work things out to the car, he screams his little head off but only for a short while! And he hugs and kisses me when I pick him up from daycare. I have a feeling our little man will be walking very soon!!!!

Shrink into Summer

And I am right back to where I began. Last week, I did not make a post about my 4lb. loss because I was to busy getting ready for my son's first birthday party. And good thing that I didn't because the 4lbs that I reported as a loss are back! I did get my workouts in this week but it's been cake and ice cream every night for the last four nights... oops!!! You only get to celebrate your son's first birthday once :) And you only get to eat first birthday cake until it's all gone once :)
Anyway, here is what I did this week:

Thursday: 30 min. on elliptical with 5lb. dumbbells.
Friday: OFF
Saturday: 25 min. Pilates workout.
Sunday: 3 mile walk with son.
Monday 30 min. on elliptical with 5lb. dumbbells.
Tuesday: 45 min. Pilates workout
Wednesday: 30 min. on elliptical with 5lb. dumbbells.

And it was a great First Birthday Party!!!!

We wanted to thank everyone that came to our home on Saturday to celebrate our baby's first birthday!! A HUGE thank you to all the grandma's and grandpa's for helping to make our son's day so special! We had an absolutely awesome day and our little one had a blast. He clapped to the very end ( I think he might have been clapping in his sleep last night lol...) We couldn't have asked for better weather or better company!

Here are pictures from our son's big day:
