Day 6- 100 Day Challenge

Day 6, 94 days left...

The Google spreadsheet is HERE.  Click on it and make sure to put an X on the days you follow through.

It's Sunday, my rest day.  It feels good to be lazy and take a day off.  The past week has been so crazy with Emma's birthday, working late at the studio getting ready for the performance on Saturday, then Jake leaving on Thursday.  I woke up yesterday with "the list" already running in my mind of stuff I needed to get done before we left for the performance.  20 minutes later I could barely see out of my right eye.  OH NO!!  I know what this means... a migraine is coming.  I kept saying over and over "Not today.  Any day but today!"  I needed to be 100% since I would have all three kids while I helped 65 dancers before and during the performance with costumes, props, getting them on and off the floor, finding fake eyelashes, touching up hair and makeup, etc.  I quickly downed some excedrine migraine and got in the warm shower, massaging my neck and left shoulder where I could feel all the tension.  Thankfully the migraine never got full-blown.  I took the medicine just in time, and just had a dull headache for most of the day.  Right before we were supposed to leave for the high school, Josh said his tummy hurt.  He was lethargic and wouldn't eat anything.  I immediately had this thought of me holding Josh while he was puking, and then still trying to help all the dancers.  The stress of the week finally hit me like a ton of bricks.  Josh getting sick was the last straw.  I called my mother-in-law and just broke down into tears.  I knew she was incredibly busy with her sister and nephews in town, and everything else she was trying to get done but I needed help.  She sent Dale, my father-in-law over and within 20 minutes he was here in our driveway, ready to take the boys for me.  Huge blessings.  I love my in-laws so much!  Sometimes I wish I were superwoman so I could do it all and not be phased by roadbumps.  I dried my eyes, fixed my running mascara, touched up the bags under my eyes, got Emma in the car and headed out.  The show must go on, right?  And it did (and Emma and her team did great!)  After the performance, I came home and fell asleep on the couch with Josh for almost two hours.  Great end to a hectic week.  Jake comes home in about an hour and we are all counting down the minutes.

Anyway, I got a good night's sleep last night and feel recharged for our Week 2.  I hope all of you are, too.  Day 7 tomorrow.  I'll be waking up at 5am and going to a Body Combat class with my friend, Meighan.  If Josh is feeling better I will head to the gym at 9am to do weights.  If not, I'll do my Jillian Michaels DVD at home.  I've been so impressed with all of you.  The fact that many of you are taking this seriously makes me so happy.  I know in 95 days we will see some amazing things and I can't wait!  Keep pushing hard and going strong.  See you tomorrow!

Sorry about your crazy week. No good. Hang in there, it will get better.

I've just been doing toning exercises and low weights. Hopefully, I'll work up to more but for's a great start.

You are amazing Jamie! I wanted to update you on my week: I honestly would not have worked out at all if it wasn't for this challenge! My biggest problem/excuse is the depressing weather- it just makes me want to stay inside and cuddle in a blanket : ). But, I kept thinking about you and this challenge so I made myself do my four workouts (even though two of them were on Saturday so I could make my quota) : ).
Also, little question about the spreadsheet- should I mark an x for each day I workout or just x through all the days in the week when I complete my goal for that week? Just wondering if you had a preference since mine is a weekly goal rather than a daily one.

Had a good workout Friday. Only paused 3 times on the athletic step. 2 water breaks and one 30 second break.
