Where Jillian Michaels’ Body Revolution & Cadbury Creme Eggs Live in Harmony

Oh man. Does the grocery store have it in for my healthy eating or what? They strategically placed this display for Cadbury Creme Eggs, which are only my favorite candy EVER, right next to the check out lines at my local Kroger. It’s like they were thinking of just me when they placed this. They knew I wouldn’t be able to walk past it without picking up a hand full (or five) of the best candy in the world. But I have something that Kroger doesn’t know I have this year. Willpower. And determination to accomplish my 2013 goals.  I am still on my journey to my goal weight and I cannot let my beloved candy stand in my way. photo (16)I didn’t say that I’ll never have one during this Easter shopping season. Hell, I’ll probably have quite a few. But I will not let it ruin me. I will not give it that control.  I want to reach my goal weight of 115-120 and come hell or high water, I’m gonna do it and stick with it. But man, those Cadbury Creme Eggs are delicious. Do you have a certain candy that can break you? Or a certain salty snack?

On the topic of losing weight and trying to stay away from my favorite candy…I have owned Jillian Michaels’ Body Revolution for like a year and guess how many times I have completed the 90 day workout? Zero. Absolutely zero times. So when Jeff and I return from Las Vegas I am throwing myself into 90 days of Jillian Michaels Body Revolution. I hate to. I want to. I need to. So I should have plenty to tell you all each day between marathon training and Body Revolution, graduate school, a full time job and having a family…sometimes I think I have bitten off more than I can chew. But I just keep on chewing…

I have actually only made it to week 2 or 3 on Body Revolution, which is typical of me and also totally pathetic. I have a tendency to have grandiose goals and dreams for myself and then always let myself fall flat on my face when it comes time to follow through with anything. But this time, I am putting it all out there. I am going to write about it and keep myself accountable to this goal. I will beat you Jillian Michaels!

Plus, I secretly want my body to look like yours. All toned and petite. I could pull that off. Easy. I will also take the dreaded before/after pictures and post them here so you can all poke fun at me and understand why I hate my body. I’m sure it’ll be super fun!
Happy Thursday!

    I think we all struggle with this – at least I know I do. I shouldnt eat it, but I want it, but I shouldnt eat it, but I want it. I need to work out, but I dont want to. But I need to, but I dont want to. :)

    I’m all about finding balance. Or trying REALLY hard to find it. Good luck on your challenge. I’m currently doing Tina Reale’s Best Body Bootcamp and I love it. Also joined the Fitfluential DietBet Challenge. All steps to get me closer to my goal weight….and some tasty M&Ms.

    ;)

      I was thinking of joining the DietBet Challenge but couldn’t bring myself to pull the trigger on it.

    I LOVE cadbury eggs. OMG they are the demise of me. Seriously .I almost considered picking up the body revolution, it looked interesting.. but so expensive. Maybe if I could find it used bc I can’t ever get past two weeks of her in any DVD because she drives me crazy, but I’m sure the workouts are so worth it…

      Body Revolution is great! I have never gotten past week 3 because I am sometimes a quitter, but this time I am seeing it through to the end!

    I love Cadbury eggs. They are tied with the chocolate oranges for favorite candy of all time! Sadly, my self control powers might not be as finely honed as yours so I will send the hubs to the grocery store until they have disappeared!!! I too have been brushing the dust off of some of my previous fitness commitments and videos this month and making sure that this time I follow through on the promises I make to myself!!!

      I hope you are resisting the eggs like I am!
