Not going to lie to any of you guys. I started working full-time last month and have since fallen way off the wagon. I think the proverbial wagon actually knocked me off, backed up, and ran over me again. And it shows. Big time. I've gained 7 pounds since I started back to work. My immune system is also run way down. I haven't felt great in so long. I've been skimping on the green monsters and not taking vitamins like I should. I've been eating a lot of restaurant food. A lot of it. Way, way too much. I had a nasty sinus infection last week and this week I have mastitis. I can't help but think that my diet and lifestyle have contributed to getting sick. When I was doing so well with eating and exercise, I didn't get the flu while everyone else in the house did. My face is so broken out. I have no energy.

This ends now. I am getting back on track. My friend Karri and I have agreed to be wake up buddies and wake up each other before work to work out. Since it's still dark out at 5am and our treadmill is STILL BROKEN (pardon me, Mr. Skinny, you need to get on this!), I'll be using my very limited library of home workout DVDs. And by very limited, I mean that I have two: Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and Yoga Meltdown. I'm not a fan of either.

I recently signed up for a dietbet with aforementioned Karri. I am straight killing it with it! I'm already 63% to goal and still have 3 weeks to go to lose the last 27%. You have to lose 4% of your body weight in 4 weeks to win and I am well on my way. You pay $20 via PayPal, submit 2 pictures of yourself on the scale to dietbet, and then weigh in from there. It's super easy with the dietbet iPhone app and I can't wait to win some money! I'm already planning on using the dietbet money for something fitness related for me. I think I might get fitted for some real running shoes so that I can have them for my very first 5k in April!

Yes, you read that right! I've officially signed up for my first 5k! I'm so excited for it! It's a color run, so I'm not crazy about having to be able to run the whole thing, but I would like to run at least part of the way.

So... Help me out here. What are some of your favorite workout DVDs? What was your first race? How did you do? Any tips for my first race??
