30 day wrap up

well today is the last day of november and i figured i would update you on my 30 day shred plan i did for the month. i missed a total of 7 days out of the month. 2 were lazy hormonal days and 5 i was sick and it just wasn't happening. but overall i am proud that i stuck with it and completed 23 days.

i did switch the workouts around. shred 1 actually became too easy and mundane, so i took on shred 2...that kicked my butt good. then i got stupid and did both workouts in 1 day. not something i can do everyday, but it was a nice change. the last few days i have been completing her quick problem areas workout. that has truly been an eye opener. owwiieeeee! is all i have to say!

overall i would recommend this for people to try if they are looking for a change in workout. i did not lose any weight during this time, i actually gained weight. that being said, i am slimmer and much more tone. so that has kept me going. i am also stronger too which feels amazing. i plan on continuing to workout as far into december as possible. we will be traveling for the holidays, so i won't be able to complete these workouts for the entire month...but i will have to wear a swimsuit everyday so i will continue doing something:) and i plan on picking up when we return home.

the best part about this is it was all free on our free exercise on demand channel. so i could change up the workouts whenever i wanted to and not have to buy a new dvd. ok, enough about that!

just having a little creative fun. been wanting to get into my scrappy area for awhile now, but now that the pegboard is hung and everything is truly organized...i had new found inspiration.
so here it is....

(click to enlarge)

as far as my 30 day shred is going....i am proud to say i have completed it every single day so far. i am sore still, but i am really noticing a difference in my tone. i am getting stronger and starting to see some muscle definition. i attempted the 2nd level one day...i don't know what i was thinking, but quickly went back to the 1st level:)....anyways just a quick update!

day 2 complete!

whoop whoop! now i can relax for another 24 hrs...

day 1 complete

i am always looking for new challenges so i decided to attempt jillian michaels 30 day shread for the entire month of november. we are lucky cause it comes on our free exercise on demand channel. so it costs me nothing. but some sweat and sore muscles:)

i don't usually post these things on here, but i am counting on "you" to help keep me honest. cause lets face it....this next month is gonna down right suck for me. LOL. but if i actually follow thru...DANG the benefits will be worth it!!

so i am proud to say i did complete it yesterday...and plan on updating as often as i can to let you know i am still on track. (or to just put it in writing so i can laugh at myself later)...

here's to a toner me by the end of the month! pass the gatorade!

(halloween costumes to come)
