Visions of Jillian


Last week, I weighed 172.6. This morning, I weighed:

After the weekend that I had, I'm not complaining about that. Still got some major work to do though, so let's keep it up.


Yesterday, I started getting that pre-sore throat "aura." You know, that feeling that you're going to be getting sick soon but you're not actually sick yet? Well, I never actually got a sore throat, but I was still up tossing and turning all night. I woke up completely exhausted and wanting to stay in bed all day, but we all know that's not an option for a pharmacy student.

Somehow I made it to the gym and miraculously ran 4 miles on the treadmill. By the time I started running I had started to get congested and I seriously felt like I was going to fall asleep the entire time. I have no idea how I got through it, but I just kept the pace nice and slow (finished in 41:35) and thought about how mad at myself I would be if I quit. I also pretended like I was on Biggest Loser and Jillian was standing next to me yelling. Hey, ya gotta do what ya gotta do ;)

And what's a post without pictures of my food?

Pre-workout breakfast:

Scrambled eggs with 1 whole egg and 3 egg whites, a cinnamon raisin english muffin, and blueberries.

Post-workout fuel:

In the shake:
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 scoop chocolate coconut protein powder

Some more of today's eats:



1/2 banana + AB

Off to get my study on!

How do you get yourself through a work-out when you don't feel like exercising?


  1. More than qualifies! =) Way to go girl! Everything looks delicious and oh-so-healthy! <3 keep it up - you're unstoppable!!!

  2. Great job sticking out the run! I dont really have any tricks for getting through a workout--usually I just try to distract myself and think about how much better i'll feel when its done. Other times I just stop early, somethings better than nothing right?!

  3. Yum - chocolate coconut protein powder sounds delicious! What brand is that?

  4. When Im trying to get through a workout I think about my clothes. Clothes fitting looser, clothes I'd like to wear, etc. It gets the job done. :D The food looks great!

  5. I tend to visualize my goal and that gets me through my workout when I'm not in the mood.
    Great work for completing your workout.

  6. Woo good job!! Haha - i have used Jillian as motivation before! And also blogging - i think "Ok, so am i going to blog about how i didn't work out, or how i DID work out?" :)

  7. my hubby is sick right now too, so be on your guard girl!! Keep that nasty sickness away!
    I usually motivate myself through imagining myself on the soccer field. It may be weird, but when I picture the game I suddenly want to push harder.
