If at first you don't succeed...

I started doing the 30 Day Shred at the end of April... my plan was to do it every 2nd day. But then I started slacking more and more, and before I knew it I was only doing it twice/week. And then once/week. I only got in 11 Shred workouts in just over a month.... no wonder I didn't lose any weight.
The thing is.. I DID notice that it was working. My stamina was recognizably better after only the first few workouts. My muscles ached in that special way that makes you know that what you are doing is working. But I got lazy. Part of it could be because I had to use the only TV we have, and I felt guilty for kicking my husband off the tv during his evening "relax time" (even though HE didn't have a problem with it, I felt guilty about it)
So it has come time, yet again, for me to "start over". I don't know how many times I have done this in the past, and I'm sure this won't be the last time either.
I restarted the Shred on Tuesday, since I fell off the wagon so badly. I'm combining it with the Couch to 5K program, so I am alternating days. My plan is to do Shred 3 days/week, C25K 3 days/week, and do something fun on my "off" day (like last Sunday, we took the kids to the pool). So far, so good!
My week so far has looked like this:
Saturday June 9th - Couch to 5K week 1 day 1
Sunday June 10th - swimming pool with the kids (squatting in the pool for a few hours!)
Monday June 11th - Couch to 5K week 1 day 2
Tuesday June 12th - 30 Day Shred day 1 level 1
Wednesday June 13th - Couch to 5K week 1 day 3
And tonight I'll be doing the Shred again!
