When I found out HBO was selling full-size replicas of the Iron Throne from Game of Thrones, I cursed the moral part of me that objected to bank robbery. Yes, it’s the real deal and it cost $30,000. My pipe dreams aside, HBO’s shop, like many online retailers, offers users the option of leaving product reviews on their wares and something interesting started happening on the Iron Throne page. Game of Thrones fans, you do not disappoint. Hit the jump to check out reviews by Jon Snow, Stannis, Arya, and more!
Well, 2 weeks ago I went away. And I stopped working out. I decided to start again though. But now Im doing Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred.
I have to say, as hard as I thought p90X was, this was by far the hardest 20 minutes of my life. My legs and arms are still shaking.
I took a picture of myself today, the one on the left, the one on the right is the one that I took when I started p90X. So far Ive lost 5 lbs (including my time not working out). But weight is just a number.
Im going to take a picture next week.
Wish me luck, Ill need it for this one.
So, I had a great week last week. I’m going to be honest, I really just want to do CardioX and Ab Ripper X2 (I know it sounds wrong, whatever). Well, I started to take out my summer clothes and the first thing I did was grab a dress that just fit last summer (and by just fit I mean I had to hold my breath to zip it up) fit perfect. Its a little tight up top (only surgery can help me there) but in the stomach area it was definitely looser. I can wear one of my favorite dresses and breathe. So, like I said in the beginning I’m not following the meal plan. I eat pretty well as it is, and I don’t eat fish, so gross. I also think its hard to follow a diet when there’s so many yummy places to eat. I started to limit myself by only eating out on the weekends. Well, this weekend was the most delicious weekend. So Monday’s exercising was extremely brutal.
I decided not to post everyday because really, there isnt much to say.
But I can say this. So far I’ve lost about 1.5 lb and today a pair of pants that usually fit a little too tight sometimes fit perfectly.
I dont see a difference really, but then again its only been 2 weeks.

Well, I was sick the last 2 days so P90 was out of the question.
I picked up from where I left off.
Today was Kenpo. It was pretty fun. I definitely felt like an Avenger doing it.
I think Im doing this whole thing wrong. I dont really see a difference, but then again Its only been a week. I guess I expect too much too soon.
So far I dont notice a physical difference. I have noticed that the program is getting easier to follow. Some of the exercises I couldn’t do before I found were a little bit easier to follow now. Some for the life of me I still can’t figure out, but its only my second time doing it.
Hopefully by the end of the month Ill see some results. I think tomorrow Im going to take measurements to see, but since I started last week it’s obviously going to be off. But, we shall see.
Also, I know it’s only week 2 but I noticed that I dont mind doing it. Some days obviously this isnt how I feel. But, I soldier on.

Today was Legs and Back and Ab Ripper.
I found that the leg exercises were really easy to follow, some of the stuff Ive done so far, I could never figure out quite how to execute it but these were a little easier for me to follow. The only problem today is that you need to do a lot of pull ups and I have nowhere to do them, so that didnt really help.
Today was the first day I did the Ab Ripper. Since I lost my copy of Ab Ripper, someone made me a copy of the Ab Ripper for X2 so it might be different than the one I should be doing. I definitely felt the burn though. I liked it though, and I might just do it a few times a week.
