Day 8 of the dreaded 30 Day Shred

26 Jun

Well, today marks the 8th day I have been doing this crap. I figured I would let you guys know 1) I haven’t died, and 2) I am really beginning to notice some small changes. My arms and legs are slimming down along with the flabby baby belly!

I thought for sure this would be much tougher than it actually is. I mean if your out of shape it is tough, don’t get me wrong, but I absolutely thought I was going to die after day 1. Now come day 8 and I am loving it. It creates so much positive energy throughout the rest of the day when I work out early.

I want to give a shout out to all the ladies going through this journey with me, KEEP ROCKING IT!

So far I’d have to give it a thumbs up. When I hit level 2 I might be crying haha.

This is day 7 coming in at 202 pounds.

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!

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,
