Channeling Rocky Balboa

I've never worn boxing gloves until today. The workout with the fitness trainer was all boxing! I actually liked it. I have always stayed away from Body Combat because I felt I was too "girlie". But strap on a pair of pink boxing gloves and I'm ready to go three rounds! Now they don't wear boxing gloves in Body Combat, but I'm more willing to try it now. Well....maybe I should see how sore I am tomorrow. If right now is any indication, I'm going to be DEAD SORE! OUCH!!

I'm proud. I stuck to my fruit and a half. It was hard. I purposely did not buy bananas at the grocery store. I thought about buying Edamame, but it just sounds so snobbish!

On a very exciting note...and I'm calling it a miracle from God, I weight 266.6 at 8:00 PM - after a workout, After drinking a ton of water all day, including about 20 oz during the workout, after a good sized dinner. Which means tomorrow I might be able to update an ACHIEVED! We shall see!


  1. Hello! I see you're in Illinois, so am I. This is my first time visiting your blog. Congrats on the boxing-sounds like you had a good time. Sounds like your'e doing great. Isn't it neat that "strangers" can encourage one another.

  2. great job jodie, any exercise you enjoy is good exercise. Keep up the good work.

  3. You step out of your comfort zone. Awesome work. Enjoy every moment of it.

  4. Congrats on the good weight! I'm glad you've found another activity you like. I need to figure out some new stuff to do now that my knee is officially jacked up for the short term. Have a great weekend.
