As most of you know, I was LOATH to buy the Shred, much less do it. But we bought it, AND I completed it! And let me tell you, I was a little sad to know that I didn’t have to hear Jillian’s voice today. Ha, April Fools.
Good News: I lost 5 inches and I FEEL better.
Bad News: I didn’t lose even ONE pound. As a slave to the scale, this is hard for me. As per Laury’s advice, I put the scale away. Honestly, it felt REALLY freeing. I was afraid that I would make bad choices since I wouldn’t have the dreaded weigh day looming on the horizon. It didn’t work that way. Woot, Woot!
All in all I am glad that I did it. I probably won’t do it again unless we have another kid. I feel like it is a great place to start, but in and of itself it isn’t a complete workout. It’s quite short and doesn’t touch on all the muscle groups that need dealt with. This would be FINE, except you are supposed to do this EVERY day and don’t have the option for cross training. I missed working out with weights. Also, I tried ONE day of Jillian’s yoga and it was TERRIBLE. There is nothing calming about her and she wasn’t a very good Yogi.
Today I started Turbo Fire. I took the “Before” pictures and eeeeeeeeep. I’m truly excited about this journey called HEALTH.
Have you, would you, or will you do the Shred???
Gooner LOVES to sing. Being as her microphone was at home, she improvised with a flashlight.
