Day 1

19 Jun

Most of you know I have struggled with weight issues for some time now. After a huge weight loss a couple of years back, I found out I was pregnant. I gained 52 pounds just from the pregnancy and even more after he arrived. Time to nip that in the bud again. I decided today that I am going to do the Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred. What is that you say? Yes I know I am crazy!

I have never been big on numbers and posting weight and measurements, but for the purpose of this shred, I think it is important. A way to compare where I am now, with where I will be at the end. Currently I am 207 pounds (whew I know), however I am content with how my body looks in clothes.

This is before the magic happens!

This is before the magic happens!

I am just trying to get healthy and fit again for my son.

Okay, well I did Day 1, on level 1! It was tiring, but I love the set-up. It is 3 mins of strength, 2 mins cardio, and 1 min abs. Kind of makes the whole thing go by a lot faster than you would imagine. I definitely do not think I was ready for all this, but I pulled it together and got through it today. Let’s see how sore I am tomorrow.

I will keep you ladies and gents updated as much as I can. I will try and check in weekly on the progress of my shred.

If you want to join me, leave me a little msg and I will get a group started so we can go at it together, discuss difficulties or concerns, recipes or whatever…LET’S GET IT BITCHES!

love always,

    Good luck to you. I’m still trying to get off the extra pounds from my last baby. They sure can put the pounds on you, haha. Thanks for linking up with the Tattler Thursday Blog Hop. (ImNoHumdrum-Mum: Co-Hostess.)
