The title of this post sounds so blah! But, I was excited to see I hit the 100 mark! Yay me! (As London would say on the Suite Life of Zach and Cody)
Ok, so I tackled the Shred today earlier than yesterday! Believe me, I had every excuse not to do it at all – woke many times last night with a cramp behind my right shoulder blade, woke with a headache at 2 am which I still had despite many different meds, so sore from day 1, etc… But, I did it anyway!
Now, I am happy to be able to say that I did it, it’s over with, done, finished, behind me … Well, you get the point!! But, I am flustered because I saw a 5 pound increase in my weight this morning. 5 pounds!! But, I will not be deterred! Yesterday, I tried some small modifications in my diet. I will just continue with those small changes, moving to bigger changes and adding exercise until I see big changes.
As for day 2 of the workout … I was so very sore to start with. Well, you know that becasue I said it already. But, I was pleasantly surprised to find that some of that soreness decreased as I went through the exercises. And, despite weekly hikes with the family and using my exercise bike – I am severly lacking in the cardio. I can muddle through most of the strength parts and while I have no ab definition, I can actually complete all of the ab workout except for the bicycle – but I have to take a couple breaks during the cardio. And, as I sit here, I continue to have the shakey hands, nausea and can feel the sweat pour down my back as I did on day 1. It is definitely a workout!
For an added bonus, my headache is gone! Oh, the power of exercise!
I plan to make some concrete goals today for this 30 days besides to survive Jillian’s workout! And, despite me saying I would not do more before photos, I did! Again, I will spare you!
I am encouraged by others success and stories! So, please – whether doing the 30 Day Shred or something else. Please do feel free to share!!
