30 day shred {…i’m not really sure how many days…}

20 Nov

So, my 30 Day Shred experience is completely messed up.

I have about 6 days left still. I got sick and didn’t work out for 2 days. I went to Orlando for the weekend for my chorus’ international competition so I didn’t work out. Yesterday I was so exhausted and today we’re leaving for NY for Thanksgiving. So I still have about 6 days left.

I was going to measure myself before I left for Orlando but never got around to it. So….I kind of messed myself up. I’m going to try and workout a little in NY but I won’t be doing the DVD. I’m planning on finishing the 30 Day Shred next week when life gets back to normal but I know it won’t be the same.

Oh well. It is what it is and, at this point, there isn’t really much I can do about it. So we will see how it goes next week.

Dan and I are leaving tonight for NY. We will be there until Saturday because we are spending Thanksgiving with Dan’s family this year. I plan on doing a lot of relaxing and reading and spending time with our 3 year old niece Abby and maybe a little school work that I really need to do also.

I still plan on posting a little but I hope everyone has a fabulous holiday and eats lots of delicious food!

I’m realizing that I am slacking on my posting again and I need to stop. I need to make this blog more of a priority even when things get crazy.

Anyway, on to my 30 Day Shred update. I have done 20 days so far. I will admit, I have taken 3 days off since the last time I posted. So the 20 days have not been a complete 20 days with no days off. But I think only taking 3 out of 20 days off is pretty good.

Today was my 13th day of doing level 2 so tomorrow I am moving up to level 3 for my last 10 days. I haven’t done level 3 much and I don’t really remember much about it other than that it is hard. So I guess I will see how it goes tomorrow.

I’m not sure how the next 10 days are going to go because I’m leaving next Thursday night for Florida for my chorus’ contest. I don’t exactly have 10 days before that so I think I’m going to try doubling up days…and if I have to drop 1 day off the end, I think I’d be ok with that. I just don’t want to come back from the weekend and have 1 day to do. That doesn’t really make sense.

I will be sure to do a final update when the last 10 days are over.

I posted last week about doing Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred. I thought I would post an update on my progress.

Today was day 10 so I have completed 1/3 of the 30 days and I feel pretty good. You are supposed to do each level of the workout until you feel like you should move on. I did level 1 for 7 days. I’ve done level 1 many times and I felt like it was pretty easy. So I decided to move on after a week. I moved on to level 2 on Monday. I forgot how hard level 2 is compared to level 1. Oh man. I’m doing it but it is so hard. And I know level 3 is even harder….

I haven’t really lost any weight but I definitely feel like I’m building some muscle. So that is a good thing.

Anyway, here is to the next 10 days when I will update on my progress again.

I used to do this DVD a lot before we got married. It is really hard, especially for being a 20 minute workout. It is 3 minutes of strength training, 2 minutes of cardio, and 1 minute of abs then you repeat 2 more times. There are 3 different levels that get harder and harder.

I’ve never actually done it for 30 days in a row though. I decided I would try it for 30 days and see what the 30 day shred can do for me.

I plan on doing each level for 10 days and then moving on to the next level.

I started the 1st level today so October 15th is day one. I already know there is at least 1 day that I won’t be able to do it but I plan on doing it every single day that I can. So let’s see where I am in 30 days from now. I will definitely keep you guys posted.

Has anyone else done the 30 day shred? Has anyone seen crazy results?
