Day 34

Morning weigh-in: 136.5 (Maybe there is some kinda magic weightloss solution in my mom's krem snjita pastery...if only I hadn't thrown them away)

I woke up early to go to the gym and have my first post-sick workout before my 12 hour shift. After I weighed in I tried again for a chin-up. My fiance said to try them with a little jump at first to get the motion down. I have been doing that and it hasn't been working. But this morning I jumped a tiny bit and pulled myself right up!!!!!!!!!! I was so excited I wanted to wake up my fiance. Still no luck with the pull-up though. I feel like I am going to reach my goal of doing them from the hanging starting position before the wedding!

My workout at the gym was nothing to brag about but it got me moving. I warmed up for a few minutes on the treadmill. I did a few alternating sets of deadlifts and bicep curls, heavy weight. Then I did a bunch of lunges, side lunges and wall sits.

I ate a really good amount of protein today. But I also ate A LOT of sodium...
BF: Protein shake (175), Snack: 2 hard-boiled eggs (180), lemonade (5), cookie from co-worker (75), Snack 2: Zone bar (190), Lunch and Dinner blended into one long meal that lasted 4 hours...I was nibbling all day because we were so busy at work: sodium-packed grilled chicken (220), a single serving container of honey mustard dressing (I don't know the calories but I am sure it was pretty bad for me), a small fruit salad made up of pineapple, kiwi and strawberries, After-work snack: Activia yogurt (110), handful of pistachios, Snack 2: (I stayed up kinda late) Fiber One bar (140) and glass of milk (90).


  1. Hey,Your doing great,don't sweat the scale.One of my goals is also to do a pull up.My upper body strength is horrible.I have to start lifting more weights.

  2. Thank you so much for the motivation. I am feeling much better now. I still have blisters in my throat even after the antibiotics, but I am going to give it a few more days and if the blisters still hang on...I'll go to the doctor again. Good luck with your pullups. I can't do anything with my arms. I am so weak. 30 day shred day 1 about killed me. lol
