I Joined!

Yesterday I finally broke down and joined  I am so excited to try it, if nothing else, for more circuit training activities!  When I filled out my info, it determined that I'm an advanced exerciser.  I was shocked but I do workout a lot.  I'll update later after I do my personalized workout!

Workout 7 No More Trouble Zones

I did ALL 7 circuits without skipping anything!  I figured out my circuit 4 problem, start with circuit 4 to get it out of the way and the rest is not so bad.  It totally worked.  I did get interrupted SEVERAL times by Gavin and Kailee but I stuck it out and finished!  Now off to the shower because I am a sweaty, smelly, mess.

Workout 6 of No More Trouble Zones

I FINALLY did the entire workout (well, I only did half of circuit #4--which I HATE--but I did all of the other 6 circuits completely).  It was hard to do the entire thing but I am soooooo proud that I pushed through.  I think my favorite circuits are the last 2.  In my opinion they are easier, probably because they are at the end of the workout.  I wish circuit 4 were at the beginning to get it over with.  Of course, I can always do it first (you can pick chapters on the DVD).  Maybe I'll try that when I do it again, either today or tomorrow.  I may do one of the shred workouts today to give my body a slight break.  However, I want my weightloss to pick up again (I am stuck at 151.something).  When I go to the doctor on July 8th, I am DYING to weigh 149 or less to finally have broken the 150 mark.  It seemed to take forever to break 160 and it's taking forever to break 150.  Hopefully once I do it, I won't go back over 150 EVER AGAIN!!!!

No more trouble zones workout 5

I worked out for the first time since last Saturday just now.  It was HARD after a week of eating horribly and not drinking enough water.  I barely made it through the first 3 circuits.  Now off to shower and to hydrate like CRAZY so that tomorrow I can make it through at least 4 circuits, hopefully 5!

I guess I never updated

I did finish the 30 day shred 2 Sundays ago.  My final weight after was 152.7 I think.  So after 30 workouts, I lost at least 5 pounds and 3 inches.  I then took over a week off from working out (figured I kinda deserved a break).

I weighed the other day and weighed 151.4 after taking a week off from working out.
Since then, I've begun doing No more Trouble Zones (another Jillian Michaels DVD).  This workout has 7 circuits combining abs and strength and some cardio.  On Tuesday, I made it through 3 circuits; today I made it through 4!  So that's progress.  I 100% believe I would not be able to do even that much if not for my dedication to the 30 day shred.

Oh and on a side note, I am squeezing in to a size 10 now and size 12 is definitely too big!  My favorite size 10 jeans still do not fit but they are a small 10 (closer to a size 8).

Off to the shower!

Day 28 , Jillian Michaels' 30 day shred level 3

Woohoo!  Did level 3 again and it does not seem nearly as hard as level 2 in my opinion!  2 more days until I post official 30 day shred results!  Of course this week has been a bad eating week so the results may not be accurate... We'll see :)

Day 27 (level 3 day 1)

Just did level 3! It actually was not as hard as I expected. I really think level 2 is harder because of the plank moves. However, I stuck with Anita doing the easier moves...

Day 25/26, Jillian Michaels' 30 day shred level 2 (day 8/9)

Technically I did day 25 on Sunday with really high bloodsugar.  I had to stop after circuit 2 but I still think it counts!

Today I just did day 26 (level 2).  It felt good.  Still can't make it through the abs in circuit 3 but I switch to bicycle crunches at that point.
